An online store changing platforms and updating it's on page content (currently there are no product descriptions) and wants to have quality engaging content for both the site visitor and search.

It should be fun, quick and easy because it's in a niche everyone loves - namely candies, sweets, lollies, chocolates etc.

They are using woocommerce with Yoast SEO as their platform

The fields required are:
Yoast SEO Product Title - To contain product name (keyword), sizes / variations and site - 70 characters max (50 min)
Yoast Meta Description - To contain name (keyword) - 156 characters max (140 min)
Product Excerpt - 55 words max (40 words min)
Product Description - min 250 words

Often times the product name and keyword will already be complete - so this is more of a check ... however if you need to fill it in you will be able to get the product name and keyword from the current product page.

From the product name you will then have to do some quick research to get an understanding of what the product is about. This is not in-depth research - if you know anything about chocolate, lollies or candy, it will be very easy.

Then you will need to write quality, fun and engaging content for the above mentioned fields.

eg in the product description - instead of just listing the same information found on other sites, you might tell a fun made up story about the product.

Where appropriate (eg meta description, excerpt, description) it should include calls to action. Of course spelling should be correct as should the grammar.

The product title will only consist of - the product name, any variations and site name.

Your role will be to go through each product in the store and fill in the fields above. There are approximately 1000 that need to be done.

To be considered please:
- reply stating you have excellent understanding and comprehension of english (Australia / UK)
- reply with your experience in this field (specifically content writing / product description writing for ecommerce products) - content that is fun, engaging and is SEO relevant - and provide site references and samples of your work
- level of familiarity with woocommerce and Yoast SEO
- provide an example of your work for the 4 fields above for a product of your choice in (the sweets / candies  chocolate niche)
- at the top of your application, reply with the phrase - I've read everything and I am the person you want

It is likely that multiple applicants that reply with highest quality content and best value will be given an opportunity to do limited amount of products to see who the most efficient people are.

Those candidates will then be evaluated on the quality of their work, efficiency and overall value ... and the best 1 or 2 will be given the remainder of the work.
