I am looking for an experienced writer (preference will be given to those who have sample blogs or articles, native English speakers in North America and Europe ONLY
VERY IMPORTANT THINGS:
- WILL NEED TO SPEAK WITH YOU ON SKYPE (PLEASE DO NOT WASTE MY TIME IF YOU CAN'T DO THIS OR YOU HAVE POOR INTERNET CONNECTION SINCE I WILL BE TRAINING YOU ON HOW TO POST THESE ARTICLES)
- PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS JOB IS NOT EASY, SO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND DO NOT TAKE THIS JOB IF YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T DELIVER 1 ARTICLE EVERY SINGLE DAY, BECAUSE OF YOUR LIFE STYLE OR OTHER GIGS......THIS IS ONLY FOR EXPERIENCED AND FAST WRITERS, IF YOU ENJOY WRITING THIS IS FOR YOU.....LONG STABLE JOB!
- I ALSO REPEAT, I ONLY HIRE NORTH AMERICA & EUROPEAN WRITERS FOR NOW....SO PLEASE LET'S SAVE EACH OTHER SOME TIME AND UNDERSTAND EACH BUSINESS HAS ITS OWN REQUIREMENTS
- IT USUALLY TAKE ME BETWEEN 2 - 7 BUSINESS DAYS TO SCAN THROUGH ALL CANDIDATES, SO KINDLY HAVE PATIENCE
(1) Definitely....needs to speak and write English well (meaning your articles will flow well when someone reads them)
(2) Need to be able to post 1 article per day (if you are fast and have time, you can finish 30 articles earlier basing on your pace....and will post date them in wordpress) - post dated for next day. Example today is monday, you will write an article for Tuesday (set it in wordpress to go live on Tuesday 12am)
(3) You need to understand basic SEO....i am using Yoast on my website, and i need every article greenlighted with Yoast (meaning proper use of keyword in the content, url, page titles e.t.c). I will be giving you keywords and titles...and it is your job to write about the keyword i give you.
(4) Must be able to use and understand wordpress - post an article yourself (categories, tags, and other features on posting articles on my site will be given to you)
(5) You will be responsible for sourcing 3 images for each article - sources (creative commons on flickr e.t.c) will be given including Google Images (but only images that are "labeled for reuse". High quality images with proper dimensions to fit my site will be required to be followed......if you have photoshop or microsoft painting, some cropping may be needed
(6) 3 Images will go within content and 1 image will be featured image......will show you where and how to insert them
(7) Word count is 1,500 MINIMUM.....each paragraph contains at least one keyword (which will be given to you). Should have at least 20 paragraphs....be creative!
(8) Articles are written for visitors......not search engines. This means they have to be useful, with story telling and make someone want to read and share to others
(9) ABSOLUTELY NO PLAGIARISM - You should know by now there are tons of software to sniff plagiarism available.....if i find one, will stop working with you immediately and you will get the worse feedback from me....GUARANTEED.
(10) My budget is $15 per article and i need 30 articles every month - one each day!
(11) Your IP address will have to be whitelisted in order to log in to my site - this is a security feature which make sure only the person permitted to use the site is log in. If you have a lifestyle of moving around daily e.t.c......then this is probably not for you (traveling once a month, i will be open to work with updating your IP but not everyday)
Again as a reminder, if for any reason you think you can not fulfill any of the above....please do not apply for this job, i have no time to waste.............but for those who can fulfill the above, i guarantee you a very long and stable opportunity for you.....all i care is my job to be done as requested.
All the best!
Note: If you will be selected, i will do 1 test article with you - $15 and if i like it, will pay and continue with the main project
