Ever tried hiring a freelance writer? I have, and it’s tough. Really tough. And it’s tougher if you don’t know how to screen the writers or if you don’t know the industry well. For instance, I have recently started a trip planning company with my besties and finding a freelance writer for travel content was the biggest challenge in the whole process. The reason? I’m not that much of a traveller and I don’t follow the travel industry.

It was actually the first time I worked with several freelance writers for a single project. It took a lot of time but in the end, I learned to hire.
That said, it’s not difficult to hire a freelancer (for any project) if you don’t care about the budget. If that’s the case, all you need to do is find the best in the industry and hire them. They will get your job done without much input from your end because they know what they are doing.
