"I'd also recommend not looking into hiring folks for one off, per/word or per/page type writers. I'd look into what you could do with a creative staffing firm to help out, for instance what they do at VitaminTalent.…"

"You make a great point. I hadn't really thought about this.  I was handed a freelancer and told "work with her." Luckily, the freelancer is an active alum, but I haven't seen past work.  I'll watch for this."

"Excellent points.  I was asked by a self-described "print dog" to find out what the going rate was.  He says he pays per word for the magazine.  But what you describe seems to be standard for a lot of web work.  This…"

Freelance Writing Rates

We're looking to outsource some of our web writing, and have been discussing what rate we should offer freelance writers - particularly for feature articles. In my research, I'm finding a lot of different rates, from less than a penny a word to nearly a $1. I'm just wondering if any of you hire freelancers for this kind of work and, if so, what and how you pay them. (e.g. $.40/word, $100/article, etc.)Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.See More

Solution for deluge of daily emails?

So way back in "the day" (eight or so years ago), our employee/student email inboxes were routinely deluged with 40+ individual email messages per day due to the "campus-wide" email lists being open for anyone here to send messages to.Enough people eventually decried the situation, so we came up with an email/website "publication" that was basically akin to a "daily digest email" of what were originally individual messages.This was highly successful and took a large part of the burden off of…See More

Best CMS option

It's time for us to move away from our current CMS, and I was wondered what is working best for others: a pre-packaged solution, or building your own with WordPress, Drupal or ...?See More
