If you are just a beginner in designing industry, you will envy those big companies who have everything to offer to their clients. I can say it on client’s behalf that they love to have a one stop shop where they can get every service related to their website. It is quite a hectic task to find a web designer, graphic designer and then a content writer. These big agencies have a solution to every problem. For instance, client will not have work on webhosting services or SEO. They will get it all from a single company. Now, where the market is full of competition, you must be thinking that as a freelancer or a newbie, it would be really difficult to compete with these companies right?

A client would be more than happy to get done with the web designing and content writing both at the same time and from the same source. Just like you plan out a booklet printing project, you want a website to be strategic and direct readers where you want them to go.

If you will hire a good freelance content writer, he can prove to be of good help as well.

Ways to Add Content Writing
There are plenty of easy ways to start with providing good content writing services along with web designing. The best thing you can do is developing referral agreements as this is indeed a great option to incorporate content writing to your company. The easiest way to go about things is to hire a freelance content writer who can write for you. You can even subcontract with any web content writing company and they can work with you. If you are not satisfied with this, you can hire a few of your own content writers. Let us take a look at how these options will work for you.
How Does Referral Agreement Work
Now, this is a two way street. You will be referring your clients to a web content writing service provider and they will refer good clients to you. But before you get into all this, you need to make sure that the web content company is capable of providing you with good clients. Also, it should be trust worthy and reliable. Do not go for just any web content writing company. Be developing referral agreement, you would be providing your clients with content writing services and you will not have to handle the hassle of content writing as well.
This will definitely resolve a few cash issues as well as you won’t be handing over the money to your hired writers from your own account. This is a great way to get things done and generate the business as well.
Hiring Freelance Writers
This is another great option for getting things done. You can simply hire a freelance writer who can work you but you will be responsible for coordinating with him throughout. The best thing about hiring a freelancer is that you get to save money as you will be paying only when there is work otherwise you do not have to pay to him. This option can be a little risky as well because if your writer is not available, your work will be delayed. Similarly you are not sure if he will deliver on time so reliability factor would be missing.
Opting for Subcontract
In this option clients will hire you for getting the work done and you will be hiring another content writing company to get the work done for you. Since they have permanent writers working for you, they will be able to deliver on time and can even meet tough deadlines. However, it can cost you a little more and you cannot be sure if your work has been given enough attention as they will be dealing with a lot of projects.
Hiring Your Own Writers
This is by far the best way to get things done. You can simply hire your own writer who can work for your company and your projects. All you need to do is find a writer who is capable of writing on anything.
Content of any communication material matters much to its target audience. Like brochures, flyers, posters, business cards and other materials from the printing medium, the website or a product or service impact the reader in many ways. The Above mentioned tips are meant to help you develop an effective strategy for yours or your website’s content. Give extra advantages to your clients for hiring you and you will be generating good business.
