We are looking for freelance writers to produce a large number of articles that are designed with SEO guidelines in mind. Most of the articles are between 500-1000 words, depending on the topic.
We are looking for writers that can balance speed and quality in their writing. We need applicants to be able to handle at least five articles a week, but we are giving preference to applicants who have the availability to write much more. For the right candidate, there is potentially a near-endless supply of writing wanted.
We pay at a starting rate of $.03/word but scale upward based on previous experience and skill. The ideal candidate is expected to be able to:
- Consistently produce error-free articles on a daily basis (we will require poorly written or inaccurate articles to be fixed before we’ll accept the submission)
- Choose imagery from relevant articles or from our stock image libraries
- Correctly categorize and tag content
- Work under an editor who will oversee and approve all content
- Command a mastery of the English language and adhere to site style conventions
- Be flexible and communicative about availabilities
- Have general SEO knowledge and how to incorporate SEO into articles
To apply writers MUST:
- Have experience writing about personal finance.
- Include 3 personal finance writing samples.
This is a work-from-anywhere position. Our team is global and comes from a wide variety of backgrounds, but candidates must be able to write in clear, adept American English.
This is not a word-mill job. It is entry-level, but we have a history of promoting capable writers from within, and we compensate competitively within the industry.
