I'm coming from another country\language internet market so I don't have enough connections and experience in US market yet. And pardon my English.
I'm preparing US market personal finance\ credit cards web service for launch.
I will need high quality content for the site - mostly product categories descriptions\ product reviews\ comparisons. Then there will be a need for educational\informational blog post and Q&A section (this process will be ongoing).
I see a lot of offerings for content writings in 'for Hire' section but I'm not sure that I will get a content that that I need from content professionals - I understand that they are focused on creating 'easy to read', '100% native English', '100% CopyScape proof' content in large quantities.
Hiring a real 'writer' on the opposite will be too expensive and I don't need his writing skills, my goal is not a novel but a content.
What I need is someone who will take time to do a good research on the topic, make a comparison, stand in a customer shoos and write a meaningful piece of text. In most cases the text doesn't need a classic preamble and conclusion and it should be a written like a novel - only facts and analysis is what important. No SEO and no pushing to sell is needed.
So basically someone with a personal experience in US consumer credit cards with analytical skills and willing to spend time on the project will be a good match.
In another geographical market for similar job I hired a former bank clerk and really happy with a choice. Not sure if I can do the same in US.
If anyone has an idea what kind of candidate I should look for and were, I will appreciate it.
