Here’s one decision I want you to make before reading this post.
Simply, because it will help you get the most out of this article and probably grow your online (blogging) business by leaps and bounds.
So here’s the question.
Content production is a huge part of the blogging process, and we all are adapted to consistently create “epic” content for our blogs, right?
I thought it too until recently when I could outsource my content and actually focus on other aspects of growing my business like:
- Creating new niche sites
- Focusing on list building
- Conducting A/B split tests
- Learning Facebook ads and
- much more.
If you’re confused about what you can do with your saved time, here is where is what top marketers tend to aim with their content and saved time.
Let your writers do the content writing so that you can make that content work in the following ways for your business.
In today's’ article, I will share with you the exact process of how I outsource my content at cheaper rates and invest my valuable time in growing my business further.
How Can You Outsource Your Content?
I recently found this platform ContentMart which is a freelance writer marketplace where you find thousands of freelance writers, filter them based on your needs like target niche expertise, past experience level, language fluency, etc.
You can also choose the writers based on your work type like blog post creation, technical writing, white paper creation, etc.
One of the features of ContentMart that I personally loved is, you get verified writers who are tested against their skills by the platform.
Check this video out for a clear idea about how ContentMart works.
Hire great writers. Try ContentMart!
Getting Started With ContentMart
Getting started and assigning your first content order on ContentMart is very simple and intuitive.
You just have to create a free account on ContentMart.
After that, you are taken to the dashboard where you see the options to place a new order and add funds to your account.
Before adding funds, I would suggest you to take a minute and fill up your profile section that will give you a better visibility and create a professional impression on your bidders (writers).
You can access the same directly on the menu of your dashboard.
Make sure you set your currency based on your requirement of your writers. If you set your currency as Indian currency, you will have access to writers residing in India while paying in USD makes you eligible to hire native English writers.
How To Place A New Order on ContentMart?
To place a new order on ContentMart, you can select “new order” menu item under your dashboard.
After that, you are taken to the “new order” portal where you will describe your article requirement, payment options, etc.
Here is the detailed screenshot for a test project I created to give you an idea of how it works.
1. Order Title and Details
In this section, you have to enter a lucrative job title that will attract bidders to take a look at your project.
In the details section, you can add the actual headline of your blog post, the word count you prefer, the preferred tone of the article. You can also ask to include specific references from the web etc.
Got screenshots and specific PDFs etc. you want your potential writer to look at? You can also add them in this section.
The aim of this section is to make it clear for your writer to know what you need.
This will save your time on editing or and send the blog posts for more revisions.
2. Filtering Content Writers
In this section, we would aim at cutting the crap out of the 1000s of writers ContentMart has so that our outsourced project gets seen by the right writers having the expertise we want them to have.
You can add a deadline so that only the writers that are free in your schedule can opt to bid for your project. You can choose blog writing, eBooks, whitepaper outsourcing, etc. under the category of writing option.
Another thing I like about ContentMart is the ability to filter out writers based on a given field of expertise. This is essential to keep the entertainment writers away from bidding on business projects and so on.
3. Article Quantity and SEO Details
This section is very important. No matter what specifications you have given in the first section, you should always add your preferred keywords, LSI keywords to sprinkle in the article in this part of your content order.
Set a word count limit so that you won’t get disappointed with long fluffy content or short useless blog posts.
4. Adding Pricing Details
In the last option, you get to add your pricing details, preferred currency, and project visibility on the platform.
I always choose a “per order” pricing model for every piece of my outsourced content from ContentMart. You can also choose a per word based pricing model, but the former helps me to filter out writers who add words just to increase the word count.
One smart feature of ContentMart is you can set the visibility of your project to all the writers selected within the category you choose or to a specific group of writers you want.
Initially, set these to public view so that you get as many writers interested in your project as available. Now after working with them over time you can select a few good ones that perform as you want.
On subsequent orders, set the visibility to only these writers and save your time working from scratch again with a new writer.
5. Placing Order
The final step is where you place your order or save it as a draft for quick access in future.
How To Save Time Creating Multiple Content Assignment Orders on ContentMart?
ContentMart is such a platform that I use everyday to feed 2 of my niche sites with relevant content.
If I create individual projects for each of the sites then that would take a lot of my time so what I do to save time is create a template.
To create a content assignment template in ContentMart, you can create a full job assignment like the one before and save it as a draft.
Now, whenever you want a new writing order just go to my orders section, choose the draft you want to replicate and click on “create similar order” option.
How To Add Funds To ContentMart?
Adding funds to ContentMart is as easy as making a PayPal payment, and you can do so by clicking on the balance option on the menu bar of the dashboard. You can view or balance and add deposits from this option.
In the payment settings, you will have to enter your preferred amount to deposit, add your name and surname.
I prefer paying via VISA, but you can do so using PayPal (and PayTM, direct bank transfer, net banking, etc. if you are using Indian currency as the payment mode).
