Getting people to visit your website and make purchases requires more than just the purchase of an ad that says ‘Click for Mustang radiators’ or something similar. Once people visit your website, they need to be motivated by the content that they find there.
Similarly, you want to feature highly in Google search results and have people stay on your website when they visit it. Even if you yourself are an SEO master and have managed to get your Mustang steering wheels website to the top rank in Google, you might not be a confident or compelling writer. Alternatively you might just not have the time to generate the content that you need.
So, where can you find a freelance writer to take that work off your hands?
Freelance writers like to talk shop as much as anyone else. The Work at Home Mom boards (wahm.com/forum) have a dedicated section for freelance writers where you can discuss your needs and take applications.
Similarly, the Absolute Write forums (absolutewrite.com/forums), although tailored to novelists, also have freelance writing sub-forums. If you are looking for work in a niche area, like the Mustang example, try posting a job on forums for that niche of expert writers.
You have a wealth of options for advertising your writing job, from Craigslist to MediaPiston to the FreelanceWritingGigs job boards. Another easy option is to place an ad on your own website or blog, so that those searching for work can come to you.
PeoplePerHour, Fiverr, Odesk and Elance all allow you to post a job and take bids from writers, Bear in mind that many experienced freelance writers avoid these sites due to a preponderance of low paying jobs and a dislike of the interfaces.
Sites like Copify.com and TextBroker.com serve as a middleman between you and the writer. You post your job or jobs, and vetted writers then have the chance to claim it. These sites generally have different tiers so you can choose more experienced and hence more expensive writers.
Remember the writer does not get the same amount of money that you pay, so you may get better quality for less cost if you advertise yourself. However, they can be very convenient and fast.
