Are you an experienced cyclist with a talent for writing?

Do you not absolutely hate ebikes?

(Sorry cycling purists!)

Would you enjoy teaching others how to find the best motorized bicycles, scooters, and hoverboards?

I'm looking for 1 or 2 writers to help provide well written content for our new electric bike site (, supplying an initial run of 30 articles, with potential for more on a monthly basis thereafter.

About Us

We build websites in a variety of industries with the goal of providing the absolute best information on each subject we cover. This means we use studies, data, and real-life experiences to help people make buying decisions and learn more about important subjects in the industry.

Our sites help hundreds of thousands of people every month, and we're about to start helping people find solutions for their electric personal transportation needs.

I prefer to nurture relationships, and many of our writers stay with us for years.

I'm looking for some paid writing help that will work with me to craft amazingly comprehensive, search- and human-optimized articles.

What I'm Looking For

I will be asking for articles on electric bikes, scooters, hoverboards, skateboards, and pretty much anything else with wheels and an electric motor.

They will mostly be review guides, 'how-to guides', tutorial style or purely informational articles. But I might occasionally ask for other article types such as list-style posts, pros and cons, myth-busting or whatever.

Articles need to be factually accurate, show knowledge of being a regular cyclist, be informative and mostly actionable, but written in a light-hearted conversational tone and style.

English MUST be your native language.

You MUST proofread and grammar check all your writing.

You MUST be a cyclist or have cycling experience.

I will provide a fairly comprehensive brief for each article, outlining the intent of each page, important keywords to help you build the relevance of the piece, competitor examples, and live pages we'd like to model, but there will be lots of room for creativity and to write to your own style, particularly as it relates to your experience cycling.

And if you have any article ideas as you get going, I'm all ears!

I will expect the articles to be 'scannable', with good use of headings, bullet-pointed / numbered lists, bolding and italics (if suitable) to make the text more easily read and suitable for the web.

The Role

I'm looking for 1 to 2 people who can commit to writing a total of 30 articles over the next 2 months.

Each article will be 3000-5000 words.

This may lead into an ongoing role where you provide 2-5 articles/month after the first batch of 30.

What Does The Job Offer?

Get paid to write about something you already know and love!

You'll learn the latest, data-backed methods of putting together search-friendly articles, that will be a big value-add to any future clients you have.

The amount I pay will depend on a few factors and I fully expect a wide range of different prices requested. Please be true and honest to yourself.

All offers, no matter how high or low will be considered and I can equally pay low or high.

Please let me know what you would like to be paid for your services by providing a PER WORD quote. These articles will all be 3000-5000 words.

Also provide at least one link to published work you have done.
