We have an exciting freelance opportunity that anyone with sound English writing abilities and an Internet connection can take advantage of. Pasting the message from the client here:
The work entails creating 350 word articles for SEO optimization. The content is not difficult, and writers are allowed to paraphrase from various sources that are provided with each writing prompt. Keywords are provided which must be used as often as possible throughout the content, and there are a few other guidelines that become second-nature and are well-laid out in our procedures guidebook. There are also many samples that freelancers are encouraged to work from and paraphrase from to make things simpler.
This work is conducted and shared entirely online.
Native English speakers with no experience in SEO tend to take 1hour to complete a single piece the first time they try, and between 20-30 minutes per piece after they have gotten used to the style. I imagine that even non-native speakers will be able to do one every 20-30 minutes once they become accustomed to the format, it may just take longer. If you have trouble reading this post, I would encourage you NOT to apply; you would be wasting your time and ours.
The Pay is:
$2-$4 USD per 350 words depending on quality and how much post-completion editing is required. That said, as your work improves over time we would be happy to discuss increasing pay. Payment methods are online paysites, western union or direct deposit if you have a US bank account.
Freelancers will start by providing a sample piece (we will instruct you how to compose it) and if the work is adequate we will discuss how many pieces per day (at least 5 days a week) you feel comfortable generating.
Keeping your own hours
Payment in USD
Working from home
The only drawback to the work is that it does get redundant and doing more than 5-10 a day would be very tiresome.
Work must be turned in before 5pm US central time, which would be quite easy given the time difference.
Preference will be given to experienced candidates, but those that show initiative in turning in work early or willingness to take on more articles a day will be welcome.
Please email us your contact information, resume and a writing sample if applicable, and we will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
