Some people love writing. It's what they do whenever they have free time. Others would rather have one of those voice-to-text assistants by their side at all times.
If you lean more toward the second group, I want to tell you about a site that could solve all your worries.

Feeding the Beast
Creating content is sometimes called "feeding the beast" because it seems like your online content is never satisfied. After you recover from writing the greatest blog of your life, suddenly another deadline is fast approaching. What do you do? Curate some stories from Yahoo? Ask for guest blogs and cross your fingers? Go dark?
None of the above.
You sign up for a free trial at Scripted.com while they are still offering this deal. What you get in return is instant access to remarkable writers at prices that you can negotiate. And if you don't like what you get? You don't have to pay for it. Everybody loves a safety net, right?
Scripted isn't a content mill like Upwork.com or amateur-hour like Fiverr.com. When you sign up with Scripted, what you gain access to is an immense marketplace of people who love writing, including screenwriters, material scientists, marketing gurus, IT experts and law students. You can even find entrepreneurs with real world launch experience and all the bruises to prove it.
Where Did Scripted Come From?
Scripted took off back in 2011 after a group who ran a bulletin board for screenwriters realized that they had an immense pool of talent on their hands. The web was a very different place six years ago, but Scripted could already see a massive wave of technology coming that would dramatically increase the demand for content.
The Scripted team experimented to see whether the elements of film storytelling could be translated into business storytelling, and the results speak for themselves. Scripted now connects businesses of all sizes to more than 7,000 writers in all areas. One of the early investors who is still involved with the project is actor Kevin Spacey. How would you like to say you got your killer content from Keyser Söze?
So How Does It Work?
You're in control over how much content you need by what date. You can request a single blog if you want, or even a series of blogs. It can scale up the volume and velocity of content from single owner startup to an international enterprise. People like me love Scripted, but so do mega corporations like makeup giant L'Oreal and sports leader Adidas.
If you're in a hurry, you can choose from blogs already written. Just grab and go. For a more personal touch, you can send a writer your ideas and they will put together an amazing piece, optimized for SEO, custom-built to your specifications. Need an image to go with it? No problem. How about edits? One or two rounds of edits are built right into the price.
I have worked with Scripted 3 times already and it has been a load off my scattered entrepreneurial mind. I have instantly accepted all 3 pieces of content they have provided. Plus they have sent the content 2-3 days earlier than requested! Bonus!
Beyond the Blog
Blogs are just a tiny corner of what they offer, though. You might need gated content, like a white paper behind a registration page for lead generation. Scripted does that.
You know you need video. You can get an explainer video script that you can send to an animation house for a low-cost, high-performance video.
There's a good bet that your website or app store content needs a refresh. Maybe your e-commerce store would do better sales with more creative product descriptions. Maybe you want to make the story of how you started the business more engaging on your About Us page.
There's no doubt that social media is the hungriest content monster of all. If you need a month of Facebook posts or something to fill up your Twitter feed, no problem.
What about an email drip campaign to warm up leads and educate customers on how to do more with what you sell?
Seriously, Scripted is the place to go for just about any content. If it's a pain for you to write (like me!), it can be done painlessly through Scripted. I stress the word PAINLESSLY.
An Additional Revenue Source
Now, here's the best part. Everybody loves a bonus! What if you would rather not write and you want to make money while you're not doing it? Scripted can help with that. Just this year, they finally introduced their own version of an affiliate marketing program.
If you refer someone to Scripted, like I'm doing right now, they will pay you $100 for each person who signs up. You don't even have to wait for your referral to convert to a customer after 30 days; the finder's fee is yours right away. Scripted can also send you special marketing materials and coupon codes to make your job that much easier. You can learn more about the program and how to sign up on Scripted's affiliate marketing program page.
TL;DR (Too Long; Didn't Read)
If you don't like writing, you probably don't like long blogs either. What I said up above was that Scripted.com is an excellent source for whatever writing you need. Even if you just have an idea, they will take your idea and run with it. You can give them detailed directions or a couple words. They also have ready-made blogs, custom-built blogs and every other type of writing you need to streamline your online business. You can even follow my lead and get paid for referrals, so it's worth your time to write them a note. Less curation, more conversion. It's that simple.
Make sure and let me know how you like it if/when you sign up!
