Modified on Sun, 27 Nov 2022 at 06:46 PM

You accepted a pitch or you're ready to assign a brief. How long should it take for the freelancer to submit a draft? The answer, of course, depends on the type of content being created, among other factors.


As a starting point, here are Contently's recommended turnaround times for each type of content:


Additional considerations

Although Contently provides recommended turnaround times, actual turnaround times must be negotiated on a project-by-project basis and may vary from freelancer to freelancer. Take into account:

  • Freelancer availability. Freelancers may have other projects scheduled and may not be able to deliver a first draft in the timeframe outlined above. To aid in planning, ask freelancers to include estimated turnaround times in your pitch guidelines. Also, feel free to message freelancers directly to set deadlines.

  • Project scope & requirements. Research- and design-intensive projects may require longer timelines.

  • Interviews. Interviews are often contingent on the interviewee's availability.
