Should I hire freelances to write for my website or should I do it alone?
I have a side project that I'm working on after my regular 9-hour job. It feels like it's killing me already because I spend a lot of energy working on both projects (company's and my own). Any advice?
It's much better when content is written by someone, who understands the business and its goals. So write when you can. Take the time to create your own content. Don't set any deadlines (at first). Also, it depends on your current budget. Sometimes it's better to hire someone and let yourself off the hook. It saves your time and nerves.
Definitely hire people to help, even if you start with small requests. The sooner you start, the quicker you'll become good at using paid services to ease your workload.
I've written loads of content for my sites and eventually, it wears you down. You need breaks from writing to stay fresh and on top of your game.
The trick is to hire freelancers in a way that saves time without compromising quality. It doesn't cost much to hire a freelancer to create the first draft. You can then work it around fairly quickly into the kind of piece you want.
I use iWriter.com (elite level) to produce drafts for me. The more often you hire people, the better you become at specifying what you want. You can also find good writers that get what you are doing. And you learn how to spot poor writers that don't deserve your work.
I also hire people at UpWork.com to do researching and writing. You can teach someone with great qualifications to produce excellent work and develop content over and over again for your business.
The message from me is to start testing what freelancers can do for you. That can only be a good thing in the long run.
There is a lot of factors in determining whether to write your own content or get someone else to do it for you. A lot of it will depend on how much control you want over your side project when it comes to the content of your site. Another factor is how complicated the content will be. A website on brain surgery is going to be much more in-depth and more complicated than a website for carpet cleaning. The truly hard part is to find someone who will write well for a reasonable price. With Google and in business, content is key and finding someone who writes good content can be looking for a needle in a haystack.
On a personal note, I also work full time and my brain is mush by the time I get home. Get someone to write your content for you if you can let it go.

When there is an overload of work, it is only practical to hire a helping hand provided you can still earn from the arrangement. Writing takes a lot of time, which you could use to do other things especially if you have another job to see to. I suggest you try to prioritize what you need to do, as some things can only be handled by you, whereas writing can be delegated to someone else. If you feel that you are not able to handle it all, you could try to assign some articles to a writer, making sure you specify what you need, such as writing style, keywords, etc. Just make sure you do not get stressed out by trying to keep up with everything, including all of the writing.
In my opinion. You should hire them. And you will review the content. After uploading to the website. You may register DMCA to protect the content. All of the pages should be registered to protect copyright.
Well, it depends upon your budget & your industry if your business really needs organic traffic so it is essential that you must hire professionals.
Both things will be good for you. If you have sufficient funds then you need to hire a content writer to save time and focus on website activity dear.
Better do both to get more mileage, however, you know the vision better for your website so translating that when working with others is of the greatest importance.
You should do both! Your website is your voice. In an age where people buy from people, you should market yourself as much as possible through your own voice.
At the same time, you want to get your message across to as many people as possible, and that starts with having more content. You can hire writers, and you can even offer the ability to guest post on your website so that others who share similar messages can promote both themselves and your brand.
I've been in business development for some time now and have been writing even longer but my message wasn't reaching people until I started guest posting and contributing. In turn, my message has the ability to reach more people, therefore, I have no problem with writing more content for other websites.
I hope that answers your question. You can and should be doing both ideally.
