Running a blog – is it worth hiring a copywriter to run a blog?

Table of content

Running a blog usually involves having to write lots of articles to post on your blog. Is this the optimal solution in practice? Or maybe hiring the services of a copywriter will result in the creation of  additional quality content and resultant benefits to your website? In this article, we will answer the question of whether it is worth hiring a copywriter to run a blog.

What does running a blog with the services of a copywriter look like?

Running a blog consists of regularly posting complete contents along with photos and meta-texts on the blog page.

A copywriter can do this using a CMS (content management system, such as WordPress), which every blog has. Along with this, the client does not have to accept and insert the received material, but the author of the texts himself takes care of it.

There are some advantages as well as disadvantages to this.

Blogging – is it worth it?

The right decision depends on each company’s situation. Entrusting your blog to a copywriter brings many advantages, but also risks. Let’s discuss the most important of them.

Advantages

  • SEO optimization
  • Time saving

The basic benefit of running a blog by a copywriter is the additional optimization of the text for SEO, which the copywriter performs when postingthe article.

Copying text from Word is not enough to increase positioning. Additionally, it is necessary:

  • specifying the headers
  • adding photos to the article
  • development of meta-descriptions

Formatting, i.e. bolding/highlighting the most important fragments, may also be helpful. Thanks to the above procedures, articles become more attractive to readers and more visible on Google. A copywriter who takes over the running of the blog takes over these activities, which is associated with another advantage for the company – time savings.

Clients who post articles themselves know that this involves some effort. Each time you have to copy the content and perform the above actions. A copywriter can, however,  release you from this unpleasant obligation by creating and posting contents from A to Z. As a result of this, the client simply pays and does not worry about the functioning of his blog.

Disadvantages

  • Additional costs

The biggest downside to blogging is the cost. Posting and optimizing a blog article requires additional time, which usually results in a higher rate per 1000 characters.

The blogging service becomes another expense that can be problematic for companies with low revenues and high costs. So it remains a matter of individual calculation whether such a solution is worth the price.

However, if we treat copywriting as a serious investment that is responsible for the image of the company, it is worth considering the comprehensive work of a specialist who will ensure optimal benefits of the blog.
