    Hi! Welcome to my profile. Since you need a writer, allow me to introduce myself. I have written over twenty novels in various genres and am always looking for a new challenge. Although I am more comfortable with fiction, I have also worked as a copywriter. If you need it written, I'm the person for the job! I'm an effective ghostwriter and have signed several non-disclosure agreements. I work discreetly and pride myself on being able to capture a client's desired tone. I have worked on a number of different genres ranging from murder mystery to young adult dystopia. I also have editing experience and can correct errors in a manuscript without changing the flow of the story. In my experience, the key to a successful novel is a detailed plot outline. If you need someone to guide you through this stage of writing a novel or want someone to give helpful tips on how to enhance your story, feel free to pop me a message! During my time as a writer, I've also been asked to be a beta reader. Other writers have also asked me to help write blurbs for their books and provide reviews. I've always enjoyed reading, so this type of work appeals to me. The authors were generally pleased with my feedback since it was fair and respectful. I always try to preserve the essence of the story while I'm providing notes, and my main priority is to preserve the author's unique voice. My writing is always well researched and delivered on time. The overall tone of my work is upbeat and engaging although I have worked on several serious projects. I have worked with a number of clients and always received positive feedback. I keep things professional and believe in hard work and efficiency. I pride myself on having a good work ethic. My interests include learning more about the world around me, and I engage in part-time volunteer work that brings me into contact with many interesting people. I look forward to hearing from you!

    WHAT YOU NEED: You've got the story, you'd just like some help telling it. You've got the product, but you need the creative copy and content marketing that will spread the word. You've got the grades, but will your personal statement get you into an Ivy League school? WHO I AM: I'm a Brooklyn-based writer and editor with over eight years of experience in journalism, editing, and writing both creative and promotional. As a student at the University of Southern California (USC), I studied Print & Digital Journalism for two years, during which time I contributed to numerous student and independent publications as a writer and editor. I switched majors my sophomore year and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Narrative Studies, an interdisciplinary writing and literature degree. Since 2015, I have operated a peer-to-peer editing service called Run The Jules, focusing mostly on remote editing for academic essays, college applications and medical/law school applications. My students have gained entry to prestigious institutions such as Brown University, UCLA, LMU, USC Keck Medical School, and Harvard Law School. I currently serve as the copy editor for monthly trade journal mg Magazine and a staff copywriter for 1o8 Agency, where I write blog posts, white papers and web copy for businesses in a variety of niches, from higher education to quantum computing. For three years, I served as Head Writer and Copy Editor for Lafayette Social, a Bay Area-based publication with a circulation of about 10,000. In addition to penning three of the magazine's feature stories each month, I edited and proofread the entire magazine from rough draft to final proof, ensuring that our content was consistent and professional. When I'm not editing, I work in music licensing and enjoy camping, going to concerts, and playing guitar. As a graduate of the Americorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), I value service to my community and spent years volunteering with food security and gardening-oriented nonprofits around the LA area. WHAT I OFFER: • proofreading/copy editing (digital content, blogs, academic writing and business writing) • content creation for blogs, online publications and marketing campaigns • editing and advising on college and graduate school application essays, cover letters, grants and scholarship essays • press releases, creative advertising copy, social media copy, promotional content • quick turnaround, reliable communication, constructive feedback Life is busy, and writing isn't easy. Let me polish your content, sell your ideas, and bring your stories to life. Cheers, Jules

    They won’t click, convert, and become customers. Trust me, they won’t. Not if you can’t write like you know what they’re going through. The pain they feel. Their promised land and the obstacles they encounter while trying to get there. Their barriers to action, both explicit and implicit. That’s the kind of depth that has to come through on every landing page, blog post, email– All of it. Otherwise, someone else will win that business. They’re winning it right now, the longer it takes you to find the right writing talent. Should be easy enough, right? There are loads of professional writers out there. Here’s the problem: Writing is maybe 25% of the whole copywriting thing. The rest is where the real magic happens: The deep research into customer voice, competitors, and the industry. The knowledge and application of proven copywriting formulas, tactics, and best practices. Experience getting the job done for clients that make you say … Yeah, I can get with that. Here’s what the CEO of a Marketing Agency had to say about working with me: “As a writer, he asks the right questions and doesn't need his hand held at all—a self-starter that picks up the lingo quickly, understands where his work fits into the marketing funnel, and delivers polished and engaging work each and every time. As someone who runs a digital marketing agency and comes across a lot of content and copywriting, trust me when I tell you that Martin is a top-tier writer.” Then there’s the SaaS Sales Leader I recently worked with: “From the sales side, it was mission critical for our team to bring value to prospects with relevant content during each stage of the sales process. Martin made my life so much easier by getting me instant credibility with prospects through content of high value and relevance.” Not a ninja reference nor “wordsmith” to speak of, because let’s be honest: You don’t need a copy unicorn to get prospects to click, convert, and become customers. You need a copywriter who knows how to do one thing: Deliver results. To see more testimonials, check out my Upwork profile–there are hundreds. Ready to talk shop?

How To Hire the Best Writer for Your Needs

Hiring a great writer doesn’t have to be hard. The most important thing you can do when hiring a writer is be very clear about your specific needs—including the kind of content you want to create (and why). 

This is because there are many different kinds of writers. Some specialize in technical writing, others focus on blogging, UX writing, creative writing, or even script writing. By knowing whether you need a content marketing writer, a creative writer, a report writer, or some other specialty, you can find just the right fit for your projects. 

Below, we’ve covered all of the essentials you need to know before hiring a writer, from crafting a job post to figuring out the cost. 

Craft a writer job post

A good writer job post will contain the following elements, regardless of industry:

  • Professional title. State what kind of writer you’re interested in working with
  • Type of hire. Indicate whether this is a contract engagement, a part-time employment role, or a full-time job
  • Project summary. Put a high-level summary in your job post so the writer can quickly assess if they’ll be a good fit for the type of content you need
  • Project details. After the summary, go into detail about your content needs—if the writer thinks they’re a good fit, they can keep reading to find out more
  • Experience requirements. Note if there are any specific levels of experience you want the writer to have, or if they need to be familiar with specific frameworks and programs
  • Deliverables. Outline what kind of work you want the writer to produce; be as specific as possible
  • Deadlines. List when you want the finished deliverables to be done
  • Budget. Clarify your budget for the project, so the writer knows if they’re in your range 

While you can structure your job post however you see fit, try to use bullet points wherever possible. This makes it easy for potential candidates to scan the job description and make sure they’re a good fit before reading more closely. 

Essential information for hiring a writer

When you consider hiring a writer, take time to understand:

  • What services a writer might offer
  • What role the writer will play in your project or company
  • When the writer might be available, and current demand for their services 
  • How much to budget for your writer
  • What questions to ask the writer when evaluating their work

The answers will help you narrow down your pool of candidates to the absolute best writer for your project. 

The role of a writer

Writers can play many roles within a company, whether they work as a full-time employee or are an independent professional. A writer’s professional and educational background will vary based on the kind of work they do. For example, a copywriter may have a degree in advertising—or a professional history as a journalist who eventually pivoted into email marketing and later advertising.

Similarly, a technical writer may have a background in STEM ... or they might have started as a social media content writer for an engineering firm, later transitioning into technical writing. Regardless of their career path, a professional writer is someone who has experience using facts, experiences, and even emotion to craft a compelling narrative and communicate ideas. 

Services offered by writers

Some of the most in-demand content writing services right now are:

  • Blogging
  • Guide and article writing
  • SEO content creation
  • Marketing copywriting
  • E-book writing
  • Report writing

If you think you need a different type of writing, do still post your job online. There are many writers who create high-quality content specific to different industries and niches—they’ll be happy to help you with your project. 

Cost of hiring a writer

The cost to hire a writer can depend on several variables, including years of experience, project scope, total deliverables, and turnaround time.

Each writer will set their own rates. However, you can often create a general budget based on the level of writing experience you’re seeking:

  • Entry-level writers may charge $30 or less per hour
  • Intermediate writers may charge between $30-$50 per hour
  • Expert writers may charge $50 and up per hour

Be aware, though—not all writers bill on an hourly basis. Some writers charge their clients by word, while others choose to use a retainer or flat-rate billing structure. 

Choosing the right writer

When hiring writers, you’ll need to review several factors including their previous writing projects, familiarity with your industry, and ability to follow different brands’ or authors’ tones of voice. 

Luckily, you can glean many of these insights by talking to an experienced writer—and examining their portfolio. Here’s what to look for:

  • Industry. Has the writer worked for any other companies, or with other clients, in your industry? Do they demonstrate a grasp on industry terminology when you talk to them?
  • Writing style. Do you like the style the writer uses in their portfolio pieces? Is it similar to, if not exactly the same as, the kind of style you want to replicate for your brand? 
  • Style guides. Does the writer have experience with any major style guides you use at your company, such as the AP Stylebook?
  • Versatility. Are there any variances in tone and style when comparing content the writer has written for different companies? How comfortable do they seem with adapting their style to a brand’s guidelines?
  • Accuracy. Does the writer produce quality work? Do you see spelling, grammatical, or factual errors? Can the writer talk to you about their typical research and editing process?

If you’re looking for freelance writing help, you should remember to read feedback and testimonials from their current or former clients. This can give you a feel of what it might be like to work with the writer.  

You can also always opt to start with a paid test project. This may be equivalent to one blog post, a week of social media captions, or a single customer email—something small, but relevant to the project. 

What kind of information will I need to provide to a writer?

Provide your writer with a content brief outlining the purpose of the content, the format, target audience, and any specific links or terms they should use. If your company has a brand or style guide, share that with the writer as well—it’ll help them match your existing tone of voice.
