    Hey, there, right now, I'm working with a Network Marketing company promoting a company's auto benefit package here in the U.S and Canada, and I want to outsource an article or two in order to promote the services, the business opportunity, and then lead to my website, so What information would I need to give a writer in order for them to make that happen?

    Depends, in general I am in depth as to my requirements.

    I provide the title and brief overview of what it should include. I also specify certain keywords and links I may want in the article.

    You be very specific about what the article should talk about including the title.

    Mention if you want/do not want bullet points or sub headings etc

    Should it include an 'author bio' type section at the end and so forth :)

    So, I'd need Keywords, Possibly title, general description, links of course, but are there other generic points that I'm missing? Reason I'm asking is that writers will leave out details just to save themselves work, so I want to know this ahead of time...

    So you're saying provide as much info as possible? And would it help me if I searched how to write an optimized article, that way I'd be able to look at from another perspective?

    Not missing anything as far as I would be concerned. I mean of a copywriter is writing an article for you it is never going to be as good or in depth as if you did. Thats taking into account you have years of experience in your market/niche.
