    "I checked Scripted out since I was looking for content marketing writers specifically. I particularly like the fact that I can assign direct tasks to freelancers I've had connected with before, that way I don't always have to screen writers all the time."

    "I found easily found a food blogger through this platform. The best thing about going through this site was that it was focused on writing - I can just look into the specific writing topics and source writers from there. It was just confusing at first cos I got redirected to another site to meet writers/ view the writing samples. "
