Great content requires many specialists: editors, grammarians etc. Working asynchronously, they waste a ton of energy. Mike Volkin describes a business that allows them to contribute simultaneously, getting the job done faster, better, and cheaper.

Show Notes


  • Content is king, and with all of the data and information available, you need a diverse team to create the best content. 
  • Crowdsourcing of content creation could reduce creation time by 70%.
  • Getting media exposure for your project depends on being relevant to current events.
  • Be a problem solver. Most freelancers follow directions very well, but they are not problem solvers. Problem solvers are a rarity. 

Action Steps:

  1. Brainstorm how the workflow is going to go from the writer’s perspective and from the company's perspective.
  2. Determine how the writers will be compensated.
