I’m looking for a chief writer and researcher for a new website that will be an introduction to dividend investing for beginners.
The goal of the new project is to guide readers through a comprehensive website that explains everything someone needs to know in order to build their own dividend-paying portfolio - whether it’s with individual stocks, ETFs, or mutual funds.
Compensation will vary depending on the article, but will be extremely competitive. Shorter ‘dictionary’ blog posts will be less than the longer research-oriented articles. Article length will vary from 400 to 2,000+ words. Compensation will start at 10 cents per word and will increase as the relationship matures.
The writer we’re looking to hire needs to be able to:
- Articulate the introductory economics involved in how dividend stocks function.
- Fully explain the intermediate economics involved in how dividend stocks are evaluated.
- Cover the intermediate-level analysis involved in picking dividend stocks or funds.
The writer will work closely with me to make sure that the overall economic framework and strategy is cohesive - we want to make sure that every article is part of an overall approach that is comprehensive. We don’t just want one-off articles without context.
Here are some example topics that the author will need to be able to write on:
- The 7 Most Important Metrics for Picking a Dividend Stock ETF
- How to Tell if a Dividend Growth Stock is Overvalued or Not
- The Tax Implications of Owning Dividend Stocks in a Taxable Account
- How to Outperform Most Dividend Growth Investors With 2 ETFs
- 3 Economic Shifts That Could Endanger Dividend-Paying Stocks
- How Well Did Dividend Stocks Do in the 2008 Financial Crisis?
- Should You Buy Dividend Stocks Now or Wait for a ‘Dip’?
Writers who are accepted will be hired to write a stand alone article. After that, there will be a several week period where the writer will be paid to help create the outline for the website including up to 100 future articles that will be published on the website.
This is going to be a strong, long-term position for the right candidate.
Please send your resume and a 1-paragraph explanation for why you are perfect for this job in particular to [email protected]. Make the subject line say “Dividend Stock Application.”
NOTE: If you don’t have a background in financial analysis or financial writing, don’t apply for this position. It’ll just waste our time.
