    Hi All

    I plan to set up a company based on the writing service, be it content writing, blog writing, technical writing, copywriting, review writing, etc.


    For that, I ask your feedback that have been or is in the business. I plan to hire someone else. So maybe I was just looking for a project assignment and sent me to megerjakannya employees.


    Looking forward to hearing from you all


    Regards

    I'm not for sure what you mean about this part, but I get the jest of what you would like some help with so I'll go ahead and put it out there. If you would like to clarify more about the part I placed in quote I would be glad to help you with it as well.
    First and foremost, you want to establish a home for your business, a website. I won't go into detail about this, because it's pretty basic, but if you need any help with that aspect of it simply reply back with your questions. Next, you will want to get your name out there. A few ways you can do this is by signing up on freelance sites (I cannot post links, but just type in "freelance writing jobs" or "freelance markets" or something of that nature into Google). I would also set up a thread on as many forums as you can, I'm not going to list any here due to the fact that it is against the rules, but just look for business/marketing forums and so on. When you freelance for someone you want to make sure that they know about your company, same with your threads on the forums you use, make sure that they know about your website, and maybe even offer a rebate or something of that nature for posting their experience (Good or bad) on your website, the forums you used, etc. I say good or bad simply because you don't not want to seem like you are paying for good reviews, you can, and may be successful, but if people find out that may stray them away from you/your company. If you have any questions, please, ask away.

    Yeah, a majority of people follow this idea and it works to a certain extent. Get high paying clients and high quality writers, and there you go, money starts flowing in. :)

    Uhm... If you want to start your own company, you would obviously need funds.

    Then you will have to hire multiple writers with various expertise. You can try oDesk or Freelancer.

    Once you have established a team, it's up for you to find clients. You can start a service here in BHW, or some other forum.

    That's about it in a nutshell. Good luck!

    But before hire anyone for writing services, you should also have some basic knowledge about writing and can write without any errors.

    I agree with ImComing. You may want to start by offering writing services to others and build a name for yourself. Once you have a few satisfied customers, they'll refer others to you. Online writing is a very competitive field and you should think about doing it one step at a time.

    Hi Buddy,

    Since am into the same business, let me share my experience with you. This is a good domain, but you need to market yourself properly in forums like BHW, best would be become a donor and start a BST to sell your service. You need to constantly keep on getting new customers, for what I have seen is the requirement of contents with most of the customers end after a short period or they tend to shift to different writers, so you need to keep on getting new customers on the same hand you need to keep on delivering to your already existing customers, now here is the problem, the problem is if you are already delivering and get more customers you need to expand your team in order to meet the needs and then after some short time you would find many customers ending their needs, which would leave you with more workforce but less work, if you can balance this properly then go ahead and BEST OF LUCK
