I am currently searching for a editor for my blog on outsource.com and got a lot of offers but I am not rushing into hiring one so fast. I am waiting and waiting and seeing what pitch catches my eye and then I will drill that person with questions because my blog means everything to me and if I don't trust a person 100%, I will not hire them.
It's like I am interviewing someone for a job and I will pick there brain as long as I can to determine if this person can be trusted and will also do research to make sure my content is on point.
Look you are hiring someone so you are the boss. You create the things you want this person to do everyday or every few days..etc
Make it known up front what you expect of this person if you was to hire that person. If it involves reaching on a topic you blogged about to verify information or to edit the blog post to insert updated data.
What I am looking for in my editor will be ongoing work.
Editing all blog posts/pages on the blog to rewrite content for better SEO or add more details, interlinking content, making recommendations on what keywords to add an affiliate link to so I can earn a commission, suggestions on design changes although It's my decision to do it because I am paying this person.
Also, if my editor is not making sure all content is written for better SEO and fun for visitors to read, I will drop that person. I love to write blog posts, but my grammar is not always that good but I can come up with great topics. So this editor will always have work to do in editing my content and guest blog posts that are submitted if they pass my guidelines.
Plus I want my editor to write 1 blog post a week. If I don't see rankings improve or social shares improve/no blog comments,, I might fire that person because this is what I am looking for my editor to do..
