I am going to hire a writer for my new upcoming website. I am wondering if i could offer his/ her writing service in warrior forum craigslist odesk etc. with out an LLC or anything. A little extra income for me and the writer-while not writing for my website(s). This would not be huge, maybe just a couple writers. Is this allowed? Thanks

    I dont see why you cant do this in the Warriors for Hire section of the forum. You do the organising and subcontracting to your writer and you supply the product and take full responsibility for the quality, feedback and problem solving....why not?

    Why don't they just offer their writing services themselves?

      Because merchants will be merchants

      Take a service or product and sell it for a profit.

        I get it. Didn't know you were talking about arbitrage.

          Well I hope the OP provides his/her writer with added benefits. If that isn't the case, the writer should have very little reason to work with the OP.

          Developing a sales thread, promoting the writing service, and managing payments and client relations.

    I would assume that as long as the writer is okay with this, then that would be fine. I don't venture into the classified sections too often anymore; but when I did I think I remember seeing people offering the services of their writing team. Better be safe than sorry though, so maybe do a little research (or consult an attorney) to make sure that you are allowed to do that.

    Yes. You can do this. There's nothing wrong with leveraging other people's effort and taking a cut for setting it all up. That's how most businesses work--they hire employees to do the grunt work while management gets paid to oversee everything. What you're talking about is typically called brokering. There's quite a few WSOs on it as it was a hot topic for a while. You also don't need any sort of business entity to do it though if it becomes more than just an occasional thing (i.e., it becomes your business model) you might want to talk to an accountant and see what they think. You could end up getting some nice benefits from setting up an actual business.

    You may or may not want to let your writer know what you're doing. Some will just be grateful for the extra work and won't care why you suddenly need a lot more of it. Others may be offended by how you're getting all of the work. Either way, whether you tell your writer what you're doing or not, you should at least ask if they can handle an increased volume of work.
