Good help is hard to find – and EXPENSIVE!

Where are all the good writers in South Africa?

My client base is growing on a monthly basis and it’s starting to get harder and harder to keep up. So much writing to do and too few hours in the day to do it in. I am currently in desperate need of a good writer in South Africa to help share the workload—but where do I find one?

At this point I have not extended my copywriting services outside of Elance and local word of mouth. But I have found Elance to be a difficult place to find good writers. Many write as a hobby—not as a career. These are not the type of people who are willing to learn and grow. As much as I hate to say it, their writing displays this.

So I turn to local writers in South Africa. Maybe through my LinkedIn network and through local advertising I will find the right person. But in South Africa, good writers are scarce. They do exist, but those who can REALLY write are grossly expensive. I guess when you’re getting paid in Rands instead of Dollars, the price is exorbitant.


I’m putting this blog out the in hope that some young writer will find it. For a whole year now I have searched the web for great writers—and been disappointed. So if you are a writer who wants to grow in the industry, then please contact me. The work is out there; I just need someone who can help me cope with it all.
