When finding someone to write on your website, either from a supplier like Direct Content, or from a freelance source such as Getafreelancer.com, you should be sure to opt for a writer that uses English as their first language. It sounds obvious, but many suppliers are from outside the US and the UK, and often advertise themselves as being English speaking, when in truth they only have a basic grasp of the language.
The temptation with hiring a content writer is always to go for the cheapest supplier, because after all we all need to watch our spending and count the pennies. But if you sacrifice the quality in exchange for a cheaper price you’ll not only be harming your company image, but you could also be putting off potential customers in the process.
Badly written, ill conceived sentence structure can let down your website badly, and it isn’t much use for SEO purposes either. Direct Content use only English writers when the content is to be delivered in English, and every article is edited by an SEO professional before it is published to ensure that it has the maximum effect for your website.
Whenever considering a content provider for your website you should ask whether they use English writers, as you’d be surprised at the great many content providers who do not.
