Market opportunities change quickly and timing is critical. A freelancer should be able to write quickly and with enough knowledge to represent the company they’re working for. He / She must be able to quickly get up to speed in the many different business industries and be able to pump out more in two days than on-staff employees or employers could do in two weeks. That means asking good questions before you start to write. Employers recognize that on-staff employees don’t have time to write full time. They’ve got customers to service and products to manufacture. A company that realizes this is most likely to use freelance copy help.
