- Time. You can quickly submit your project. It takes just some minutes to get several bids. This way, you can start working with a writer in the nick of time! The ability to enter a deadline is also really important. That guarantees no delays and problems. Remember to enter a date that gives the writer enough time to work! I had problems with this at first since I had the habit to enter really tight deadlines. But that is all in the past!
- Quality. From my own experience I have had no problems with the content I have received. I could usually use the content straightaway or after some simple tweaking (formatting mostly). In fact, the writers on Contentmart have to pass several tests regarding the language to start working. While being good at grammar does not mean being a good writer, that is still an important quality factor. As a client, you can easily access the profile of the bidding writers. This allows you to go through their portfolio and really judge their ability. Navigation is made easy through simple tags. This way, you can look up for the writer's samples depending on the desired topic. You can also see their rating, language level, expertise, etc. I find that controlling the portfolio samples is the best way to go!
- Cost. You can enter the price that better suits you! Bidders have the option to demand a different payment from what you entered, but that rarely happens.
- Dedicated to your needs. I like the ability to filter the writers based on their expertise. After all, writing encompasses a really broad range of topics. A writer skilled at creative content, may not be that good at more technical stuff such as product reviews.
- Communication. You can message with your writer in real time. This helps to get your idea across to the writer. It is also always good to know more about the hurdles of the people working for you.
- Bids. As all bidding systems, you have to accept the terms offered by the bidders. Being a client, you still retain the control in the process, but sometimes you will have to conform to the needs of the other party. Well, you are not really obliged to!
- Writing style. The problem with getting content from different writers is that it will show on your blog. Each writer has its own style and method. So, at the end, careful readers will probably notice that the content comes from different people.
Choose a deadline that will fit your and the writer's needs at the same time.
Control the writer's portfolio and profile.
