Why Use a Freelancer
Why call on a freelance writer rather than add to your staff? Here are some advantages:
- Keep your overhead low. With freelance talent you hire for the project only. You don't have to pay a salary or benefits like you would with a permanent staff member.
- Increase your staffing flexibility. Using freelancers means you can staff up when it gets busy and reduce staff when the work load goes down without adding to or subtracting from your regular staff.
- Match the person to the task. If one project calls for proofreading skills, you can hire that. If another project needs expertise in widgets, you can hire a widget expert.
- Hire experience. Maybe your regular staff is fresh out of college -- eager and talented but unseasoned. You can hire a freelancer with long-term experience to balance your team.
- Get a new perspective. A fresh set of eyes brings a new view. A freelancer can be fresh eyes.
