Outsource copywriters to the Philippines


What is a copywriter?

A copywriter is responsible for researching, planning and creating written content in order to attract and engage with an organisation’s target market. They interact with several internal departments to ensure the written content is presented to the target audience in an attention-grabbing and efficient way. Copywriters and content writers are very similar. 

Copywriter duties and tasks can include:

  • Creating copy for social media platforms including headlines and blurbs
  • Liaising with internal and external stakeholders to determine the underlying messages, call to actions and what outcome the copy will produce; e.g. for a customer to click a link and sign up for a course, or, a customer to purchase a product
  • Produce various digital content such as articles, web pages, blog posts, company newsletters and reports
  • Editing and proofreading.

These copywriting tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced. Organisations free up their local marketing teams’ time by sending these tasks to outsourced copywriters. This allows your onshore team to focus on performing higher value, revenue generating work.


What key skills and qualifications make a great copywriter?

Copywriters are generally part of the marketing team and work to ensure that the finished written content is attractive and engaging. Copywriters need to understand what end result organisational managers want from the copy and be able to translate that into content that will get customers to that desired outcome. Creativity and quality implementation skills are necessary in order to reach and successfully turn a prospect into a valued customer (after the appropriate amount of nurture). 

Copywriters are essentially the chameleons of the marketing teams; they are able to interpret the tone of one brand, and then, switch to another. Adaptability is another key trait. 

Outsourcing service providers recruit copywriters the same way an internal, talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:

  • What experience and knowledge do you have managing an organisation’s social media presence?
  • How familiar are you with producing copy for digital, print and broadcast platforms?
  • What are some examples of previous successful content you have developed?
  • How do you ensure excellent communication when speaking with relevant stakeholders, to understand the tone, message and target audience they are hoping to reach?
  • What project management and writing tools have you used?
  • Provide an example of how you showcased a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • What understanding of SEO concepts do you possess?

In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in marketing or communications is desirable. Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation's marketing requirements by hiring writers who can efficiently create and develop content with your onshore teams.
