Hi there! TennisCompanion.org is looking for experienced and reliable writers to help produce content consistently, i.e., 1-3 articles per week.
TennisCompanion is a website and community dedicated to tennis fans and enthusiasts around the world.
We emphasize helping beginners learn how to play tennis and select the right gear, but we'll cover all things tennis.
Writers We’d Like to Work With
We’re looking for writers who are available to contribute regularly through the end of 2019. Key traits we’re looking for include:
- Strong communication
- Friendly and easy-going
Here are a few of our baseline expectations for content:
- Well written: compelling and grammatically correct
- Thoroughly researched: complete and accurate
- Comprehensive: exceeds reader expectations
- Easy-to-read: written in plain English with strong formatting
- Approachable: friendly, helpful, and genuinely useful
Experience With Tennis
Experience with tennis or familiarity and passion for the sport is a plus, but not required. We recognize it’s a pretty specific niche and therefore are flexible here. At the same time, we do want our content to be authentic to the sport, so please keep that in mind if you’re considering applying.
Content Creation Workflow
We believe it’s important to set clear expectations with pre-defined check-ins throughout the content creation process. We have a simple 7-step workflow that we use with writers to help maintain strong communication. Plus, we’ll deliver a creative brief for each piece of content that is agreed upon before writing begins.
It’s also worth noting that our process is flexible. We’re willing to adapt based on the needs and expertise of the writers we work with. However, we also expect a baseline level of structure and organization to ensure a positive outcome for both parties.
We recognize all writers come with different experience levels and skill-sets, so we adjust accordingly to ensure fair compensation. For rough context, most articles we create are in-depth, and we’d expect to be priced in the $200+ range.
How to Apply
If you’re interested, please send your answer to the following questions:
- Who’s your favorite tennis player, and why?
- What are the three articles you’ve published online that you’re most proud of and why? Please include links to the articles.
- What does writing with SEO in mind mean to you?
- Please help me learn more about you by sharing a few links - examples might include:
- Personal website or blog
