Where can you find the best content writers in Portugal? That’s one of the main premises of our company, and why we decided to join forces in the first place. There are several answers to this question, and we’ll do our best to run through them over the next few lines. We aim to help you decide whether our team is the right fit for your project or if you should opt for someone else.
Portuguese Freelancer Writers
Up until the 2020 pandemic, we noticed Portuguese freelancer writers weren’t that easily available. With growing demand, we invested endless hours looking for the best content writers in Portugal. There were simply too many requests for a team that was still growing. We wanted to focus on quality and reliability, which are the content team’s main pain points.
Nearing 2023, it’s now easier than ever to find good content professionals in Portugal and Brazil. Small agencies inspire us to improve, and we keep focusing on projects where we know we can make a difference. Simultaneously, we keep our eyes set on the future as concepts such as Web3, the Metaverse, and Crypto continue to develop, requiring a simpler message to reach a broader audience.
Freelance writers are usually a great option when their experience matches several metrics. After all, each and every member of our team worked in such a capacity for years. The level of skills a freelancer gains over time is usually diverse, valuable, and may often be a great fit for businesses of all dimensions.
Hiring Portuguese freelancer writers for your project has several pros and cons. These are some of the ones we experienced over time. Either as professionals ourselves or when hiring extra hands to assist us.
Pros of hiring a Portuguese freelancer writer:
- Ability to swap amongst professionals as you please.
- Different styles and background.
- No need to dive into complex contracts or long-term deals.
Cons of hiring a Portuguese freelancer writer:
- Some may not have as much availability as you please.
- Rates vary widely and may sometimes be inadequate for your niche.
- Content quality varies considerably.
That said, we are big fans of freelancers. Some of the best Portuguese content writers in Portugal we know of either started in such a category or decided to remain so, thanks to its added flexibility. Our team works hard to deliver the same level of flexibility to our clients yet slightly expand what you can get in return: any Portuguese content writing project includes a writer, editor, and proofreader. More complex projects may include a web designer, SEO manager, video producer, or designer, and deliver according to your specific needs.
Content for Portugal and Brazil
Since you ask, several factors define the best Portuguese content writers. The main consideration is defining your target audience. Aiming at Brazil or Portugal means we’ll pick different writers, editors, and proofreaders. The differences between Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese are considerable. Even though our European team is used to tackling PT-BR content, we rely on native-level writers to ensure everything goes according to plan.
Even simple words, expressions and localization matter here. A company that fails to understand the differences between Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese may inadvertently deploy their content in the wrong idiom. The result? Content will rank poorly, audiences won’t connect with it, and it translates into a considerable loss of resources. When unsure, ask us – we will happily tell you about the differences.
A Market of 290+ Million Users
This is where we position ourselves. In recent years, we noticed considerable growth in several business areas within the Portuguese-speaking markets. Although Portugal only accounts for a small percentage of these users, the European nation registers healthy balances and increasing growth within search results.
Users are now keener on buying online and not only from national brands. Price factor and service matter, and even Amazon recently understood the value of delivering their Spanish page in Portuguese. Bigger brands are playing their part and addressing the lack of Portuguese content on their platforms. At the same time, some understand that even providing Brazilian Portuguese information can indeed appeal to European users.
Our premise remains the same: we understand how content quality is a differentiating factor in today’s online relevance. Google Search Engines also realize its importance and rank pages according to the “value” of their information. With so many businesses now eyeing the specifics of both Portuguese-speaking users on either side of the Atlantic, it’s a great time to start delivering.
Frequently Asked Questions on Portuguese Content Writers (FAQ)
We aim to keep our blog posts short and to the point. Please contact us if you’d like to see anything addressed here soon. In the meantime, we invite you to have a look at our frequently asked questions section regarding the best Portuguese content writers in Portugal.
Where do I find the best Portuguese content writers?
First, it’s important to address where you want to deploy your content. Portugal and Brazil speak different Portuguese, so we would start there. Secondly, consider your content’s specifics. There are writers with all levels of experience, rates and ability to deliver more than just words. Content mills such as UpWork and Freelancer.com are popular, but results may be erratic. Some high-end agencies are available, but also our team positions itself on the easy, accessible side of both worlds.
How much does it cost to produce content in Portuguese?
No one likes to discuss costs openly, but we prefer to be open. Our basic rates start at 30€/hour. Depending on the specifics of your project, the value can go up to 3-4x this amount when more technical data and research are required. Since each project is unique, every rate is adjustable at any moment. We would still claim our basic rate delivers quality content at very affordable prices.
How long does it take to create content in Portuguese?
Again, production times vary according to your needs. Considering some of the most basic tasks we can handle, which are usually 500-word blog posts without sourcing for images, link-building and heavy SEO considerations, we aim at a 48-hour turnaround for the first few tasks. Once we can establish a publishing script for your business, production times tend to decrease sharply.
Do you offer the best Portuguese content writers?
We wouldn’t go as far as claiming that. Superlatives are useful for certain products and services, but instead, we prefer to let our clients define us over time. Our team is experienced, attentive to detail and possesses excellent customer service. There will always be projects where we excel and those where we may not meet expectations. Regardless, we always do our best to provide you with quality Portuguese content across all verticals.
