I don't think it's a hard a you make it seem.
It involves monitoring, discussing, marketing, corresponding, making money available for all functions, paying the writers, quality assessment and attending to minute details.
I occassionally market for a group of four research writers who are in different cities of the UK and even in such a small outfit, many problems cropped up, till they found a friend in Scotland to manage the financial matters. But it is not a real company.
There is a lot of work combined with multiple responsibilities.
