Why it is a Good Idea to Outsource Your Writing tasks to an Offshore Freelance Writer

Before you choose a freelance writer, you should know your budget and the value you expect the write-ups to generate. Keeping in mind the expected ROI, you have to calculate the maximum rate you can afford per write-up. Freelance writing rates vary from place to place.
If you are looking for a native English writer, the rates can be between $15 -$100 per hour for web content/blog writing tasks. To get an idea, check out the freelance writing rates put up by a long-time writer Allena Tapia on

If you are a small business start up, with a limited budget, and you require a lot of content writing to be done for your website, you can choose to outsource your blogging or writing tasks to freelance writers in other parts of the world. There is a lot of hullabaloo on the Internet over the outsourcing issue. "Say NO to outsourcing" campaigns are doing the rounds on popular social networks. If you have a small business, and you find it difficult to afford a native English writer with respect to the expected ROI, why should it stop you from trying the alternatives from other parts of the world? Possibilities are no longer confined within national boundaries in this global village.

Print and online publications in countries like India, and China typically pay their writers by the rate of nearly $0.03 per word. You can easily get your writing tasks done by freelance writers from these countries at an affordable price. Quality of work done will depend on the writing calibre of the freelancer. If you can spend some time checking the portfolio of the freelance writer, you can avoid the issues of quality and authenticity.
