Default In-house Vs Freelancer Copy Writer!

Hello all,
We are looking for good copywriter who will write for us most frequently. But now we are getting confused on which should be better, to have an in-house copywriter or to hire freelancer. Can you please share your thought on this here?

Thank you in advance!

How many hours a week do you think someone will be spending on writing?

Default Tell us more about your business

To decide if you want to hire a freelancer or have someone on your payroll and receiving benefits, we need to know more about what you are looking for.

Will this person be writing service and product descriptions? Is that a one-time deal, something that might not be changing for six months or more, or do your offerings change often?

How engaged is your online audience? Are you looking to put out quality posts daily or weekly on your blog?

Will this person be writing a newsletter? A catalog? White papers?

Is your company B2B or B2C?

All of these things can affect your decision. There are some great, high quality freelancers out there. If it comes down to you only need someone part time or a few hours a week after an initial burst of activity, it makes more sense to become a freelancer's new favorite "retainer client."

I think Freelancer Copy writer is better. I am a freelance writer working for osamresume for past 2 years. It's a nice job. All you need is writing skill. If you have it go for freelance writing and also it is a tension free job.

Actually we are looking for someone who can write 5/6 quality articles/tutorials in a week. We are not thinking about hour but the content should have to be unique.

We are looking for someone who can give unique and quality content. And mostly he/she should have to have good knowledge on Photoshop tools and tips. The kind of content depends, it may be article, press release, tutorial, company description and so on. We may need 5/6 article on each week!

It really depends on the work volume you have to offer. If the work volume is high enough, I would suggest hiring a full time writer.
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.

If this is frequent writing, go on with in-house copywriter. Reasons? Easy coordination and easy supervision.
