This is a question that is near and dear to my heart. Besides writing client content, I’m rewriting My Web Writers’ website content these days. I’m finding that as the afternoons drag into the evenings and people circle into my office only to find my hands waving them away with, “Shhh, I’ll be out in a few minutes,” that clearly writing thirty-five pages of my own site’s content is taking more time than I bargained for. That’s because, while I planned just to copy and paste the old stuff and make a few tweeks, that’s not what’s happening. I’m rewriting and adding new thought into old verbiage.
I should have hired My Web Writers.
To my defense, I did ask my husband to write a few pages…
What a trooper!
So, I guess I can’t really blame you, Ms. Do-It-Yourself for wanting to take on the task of writing your website or blog content all by yourself. We’re great writers (and so are our spouses), so why do we need help?
It is taking me (yeah, and him, too) about 1 -2 hours per page each with content that’s close to our hearts. With those 35 – 70 hours back in our lives, we could be getting our laundry done and getting your laundry done. I could be working on losing the gazillion pounds I gained eating granola bars while sitting in a computer chair.
Outsourcing projects to writers is efficient.
We have to scale.
You can’t get around to managing a company if you’re grasping to details that others are perfectly capable of delivering.
True. No one knows the subject matter like you do, but then consider being your project’s editor. With a good writer, you’ll cut your time in half- at least.
How much do you get paid at work per hour? How much will it cost to pull three people off your boss’ pet project to get your company’s website content updated?
We have three people waiting for the opportunity to work, so that your team can stay on task.
How long does it take to write website content?
Plan on one to four hours per page if you do it yourself, but it’s a lot less time if you outsource it.
