The most common type of sourcing plan is the one-time plan. This type of plan is used when a company needs to generate content for a specific topic or niche and the company trusts the writer to complete it within a specific time frame. Another type of sourcing plan is recurring or on-going programs. This type of plan is used when companies want to work with a writer on an ongoing basis and they need content created on a regular basis.
A sourcing plan for content writing should include:
