In house every time. However, most small businesses can't afford to do this full time so freelancing becomes the only economical option

This way you will have lower costs and you will also have a better control over the quality of the work you are provided with.
Yes we are looking for full time writer but not yet lucky enough to find a perfect writer yet.

We do have the ability to afford the full time writer but problem is we are not finding any good writer.

If you can't find good writers, it can be due to two things. First, you're looking at places with a low quality selection of writers. Or second, it could be that you're not vetting your writers as stringently before hiring them so you're left with not-so-good ones. If you want to hire better writers, these resources might help you.

Thank you for the links. Actually we did find some writers who are good in writing but problem is, they dont know about Photoshop tools or tips. We are searching for someone who will be good in writing but need to have idea on Photoshop as well.

Actually it depends on your budget, the higher the well experienced writer it will be so you need to filter the free lance and in house service for you to choose the best service that will fit on your company.

Default In-House or Freelance Copywriter

Hi,

I would say the advantages of using a freelance, external copywriter is that you will get a different perspective, experience level and maybe a fresher approach than having your own in-house one.

Also, a freelancer is easier to change of you don't like them.

An in-house copywriter will give more stability on some ways. You'll get to know what they can do, they will fit in with your in-house style more easily and you only go through the hiring process once.

Availability is also a factor. Can you hire someone locally who is a fluent native speaker, in the language you're producing copy in?

Thank you in advance!
It also depends on how much product knowledge your copywriter would need to write effective copy. If the writer needs subject matter expertise or technical knowledge in order to write for you, it might be better to hire someone in-house. But if that's not an issue, it would be more cost effective to outsource that job.
