WHO WE ARE:
We are an up-and-coming website/blog covering topics related to various areas of consumer tech. Our writers cater to a broad base of loyal readers, who rely on us for up-to-date news, reviews, and numerous other kinds of informative articles.
WHAT WE NEED
1. We need an experienced tech writer to produce a number of news articles on a daily basis. More precisely, we need 4 articles each day – with a total number of 100 articles per month (up to 500 words each). Each of these articles needs to be about a highly-trending tech-related topic – something that has been trending on the Web during the past 3-6 hours.
2. In case you’re interested in other forms of articles (rather than news topics), don’t hesitate to apply and let us know what kinds of articles you can write.
1. English Language:
Even though we prefer to hire native speakers, we’re also willing to work with those who have a high level of fluency and proficiency in English. Needless to say – your grammar must be error-free.
2. Adaptive Writing Style:
Our website has a distinctive writing style, which means that you need to adapt to it effortlessly.
Make sure to use proofreading tools. Your article will be double-checked for plagiarism and any errors;
3. Research Skills:
You must be willing to do in-depth research before writing articles. Our readers value informative and high-quality content. As said earlier, you need to find a highly trending topic not more than a few hours old – and to turn that topic into a news article.
4. Prior Experience:
Please only apply if you have plenty of experience as a tech writer working via UpWork. You need to show us your previously published content that deals with tech and news articles in particular.
5. SEO Knowledge & Image Optimization:
You need to be aware of the basic SEO rules as well as how to place the chosen keywords sporadically and in a natural way. Avoid overstuffing at all costs. Besides, you will be required to optimize images and add relevant links.
6. WordPress Knowledge:
You will be in charge of preparing your articles for publishing via WordPress. This means that you need to be familiar with this tool and plugins like YoastSEO.
Last but not the least, we need you to be responsive. In certain cases, we will provide a trending topic, and we’ll need you to take no more than one hour to complete that article.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
If you join our growing team of writers, you can expect regular and ongoing work. With a bit of effort on your side, this can be a highly rewarding opportunity. Our budget is $600 for one month’s work (100 news articles) – and we pay our writers on a monthly basis. We are looking for a long-term arrangement, which means that you can count on working with us for an indefinite amount of time.
Finally, please note that we’ll ask for a short trial piece.
