    Contently

    It's helpful for top of marketing funnel writing that we can sometimes lose sight of because we are so ingrained in the product day to day. Contently is also helpful for long written pieces and ebooks that will take a significant amount of employee time to put together.I avoid using Contently for mid to bottom funnel marketing writing because my team will often have greater insight into the product function or use-case or product release, making them more adroit to the tone of the written piece and able to produce the content quickly.

    Freelancer.com

    Whether you're a freelancer or looking for a freelancer, Freelancer.com can get you together. There is a wide variety of project types that either can post in. It does take more time to search for clients and freelancers, though, since there is quite a range of both in experience, quality, and compensation (to be expected, but harder to weed through.) As a freelancer, it seems to work well enough for solo freelancers, but it could be better.

    Cons

    Contently

    • I have been using it for 3.5 years, and have had no response from potential clients.
    • The portfolio section is pretty easy to use, but I don't love the format.
    • Since I'm not a client, I don't know just how easy it is for them to find new freelancers or how often it is actually used.
    • Probably more suited for some types/concentrations of freelance writers, like finance, tech, or healthcare.

    Freelancer.com

    • Fake Projects. freelancer.com has a problem dealing with fake projects on their website. You can find a lot of fake projects there and you can get scammed a lot.
    • Freelancer.com has automated bids by the freelancers in this website; it is hard to know if the freelancer can do the job or not.

    I'm giving them a 10, but honestly, I've never reached out to them. I do see them putting out regular content on social media, so they might be responsive to questions there as well as regular customer support. In their posts and communication, they do seem to value their community, so hopefully, they have good customer support. And I've seen them asking for pitches from their community to publish well-paid articles during this stressful coronavirus time, and I really appreciate that.

    Contently

    Contently's sweet spot is their network of writers. I have tried a few other platforms but saw much lower writing quality. The tool is handy, especially if you produce multiple pieces of content every week

    Freelancer.com

    I choose Freelancer.com for technical projects, such as designing a more responsive website for the business or a mobile app for the business. Also, I come to Freelancer.com when I urgently need a design layout of for marketing materials, especially when our only designer is on leave or sick leave. This allows me to have a fast design to cover for the absence of the graphic designer.

    Return on Investment

    Contently

    • Contently contributors have produced some great inbound marking posts and creative materials saving our marketing team significant time allowing them to focus on more strategic plans for the business.
    • The amount of time Contently has saved our internal creative writing staff has more than paid for itself!

    Freelancer.com

    • I am currently in the lowest tier, which hasn't limited my exposure. At 99¢/mo, this is acceptable.
    • Freelancer.com charges a 10% flat fee for project milestone payments. Other hubs charge more or less or on a sliding scale.
