So, you wanna hire a freelancer?  Before you book that kickoff call, make sure you know the answers to these 2 questions—it could save you a ton of frustration.


1.    Who is the writer I’ll be working with?


It’s not unheard of for a freelancer to have his/her own team.  In fact, some freelancers may even outsource some or all of their work to subcontractors. 


With that being said, it’s never a bad idea to confirm who exactly will be writing your content.  The last thing you need is to be sent on a wild goose chase when you’re reaching out for copy revisions.


Speaking of communications, let’s talk about Question #2…


2.    How (and when) can I contact you?


Some freelancers only take on contract work they can fit in outside of their 9-5 job.


Others, like me, are full-time freelancers: our contract work is our “9-5.” 


And not all of us can be reached 24/7.


If you’re considering hiring a freelancer, confirm they’ll be available when you need to reach them before you commit to a contract—and find out if your preferred method of communication (whether that’s Zoom, Microsoft Teams, email, text, or a good, old-fashioned phone call) will work for both of you.
