    Are you a freelance content writer managing your content creation in WordPress? Juggling clients and projects across different platforms is already a hassle. And copying-pasting your content between Google Docs and WordPress can be even more frustrating! But when you can work efficiently and collaborate seamlessly with clients, team members, and other stakeholders – all within WordPress, nothing beats WordPress publishing. 

    Introducing Multicollab – a game-changer for freelance WordPress writers, publishers, and agencies looking to revolutionize their content creation process.   

    As an editorial collaboration plugin, Multicollab centralizes your content projects in WordPress, eliminating the need to switch between tools. It offers inline commenting, suggestions, real-time co-editing – and much more. It is here to redefine content creation for freelancer writers, simplifying their process and ensuring efficient, high-quality work. 

    1. Adding Inline Comments and Inviting Collaborators

    How would you like the ability to effortlessly add inline comments within your blog post during its review and feedback process? 

    Imagine you’re working on a document for a client’s content, and you prefer working with ongoing feedback rather than submitting a final draft and having to revise the entire thing all over again. 

    Well, as freelance writers, time and words are currency.

    With Multicollab, your clients can easily add inline comments to any text or media in your blog post. They can select any text/media and add comments, just like in Google Docs. 

    If they are unsure about a statement, they can highlight it and add a comment for you to review during post-draft and editing.

    2. Seamless Collaboration with Guests and Team Members

    Replicating your Google Docs content layout in WordPress can sometimes be a complete hassle. And to deliver a draft that meets a client’s hundred per cent expectation in the first go is a rare phenomenon. So, why not use Multicollab and invite your client to collaborate while you are drafting the post? 

    You can invite anyone to collaborate – simply by entering their email address and assigning roles like viewer or commenter. Your collaborators will receive an email with a direct link to access the content. They can join the project without any login credentials or needing a WordPress account.

    Once invited, you can tag your client or fellow review team directly in the comments for any questions or clarifications.

    3. Attaching Files and Adding Inline Comments on Images

    A content piece without visual elements is a half-baked delicacy. Hence, freelance writers know the fact that images and additional attachments to the content are icing on the cake. And, being able to get your client’s feedback on any shortlisted documents/images during the drafting process saves time for everyone.

    Multicollab allows you to attach documents to your comments. For instance, you can request an image from a client based on their requirement/expectations and easily integrate it into your content. Comments can also be added directly to images, facilitating clear communication on visual elements.

    4. Suggestion Mode: Enhancing Collaboration Efficiency

    One of the standout features of Multicollab is the Suggestion Mode. This is a WordPress writer’s best asset for their Gutenberg content creation. By encouraging your clients to use Multicollab’s suggestions feature, you can start receiving/offering suggestions on content. 

    For example, you can propose alternative words or formatting changes, and so can the client/collaborator. Collaborators can accept or reject these suggestions, making the editing process a breeze.

    Any edits to posts or pages can be highlighted to accept, reject and collaborate as needed when combined with mentions and notifications. You and your client can easily track WordPress text that has been modified, deleted, or added throughout your editorial workflow.

    5. Email and Slack Notifications

    Imagine you’re a freelance writer working with a dynamic remote content creation team that uses Multicollab. You’ve integrated Slack into your workflow for internal communication. You start working on a blog post with your colleagues. As you make edits and leave comments, Multicollab sends instant updates to Slack. 

    When a team member/client mentions you or responds to one of your comments, you’ll be instantly notified in your designated Slack channel. There is no need to check your inbox or the platform constantly.

    Furthermore, if you’ve also enabled email notifications, you can rest easy knowing that you will be informed, even if you’re not currently on Slack. This seamless integration ensures that everyone stays in the loop, making collaboration smoother and more efficient. So, go ahead, make your edits, assign comments, and let Multicollab take care of the rest, keeping your team connected and engaged in the creative process.

    6. Efficient Activity Tracking and Summary

    For busy freelancer writers working on large-scale projects, managing a high volume of content daily means struggling to track their progress. That’s where Multicollab’s Advanced Dashboard comes in, providing them with a comprehensive view of their editorial workflow.

    The Activity Timeline in the Advanced Dashboard is a go-to tool that gives you a bird’s-eye view of collaboration and progress across all pages and posts. With easy-to-use filters, you can sort and view activities by user, content categories, and time stamps. This means you can quickly pinpoint who did what and when – ensuring everyone is on the same page and tasks are moving forward seamlessly.

    Additionally, the Quick Snapshot Reporting feature is a game-changer. Imagine you want to know the latest comment activities on each page and post. Instead of sifting through endless threads or documents, this reporting tool provides you with a concise summary. It’s like having a spotlight on the most crucial information, making it easy for you to understand what your client needs and where attention is required.
