Looking for a new author for LowEndBox offers

Submissions are now closed!

I'm looking for someone who can assist me in writing offers for LowEndBox.com, primarily to decrease my workload. This will be a paid position where you get paid per article you write. The amount is negatioable depending on your availability and the number of articles you write.

I'm looking for someone that:

  • writes proper English, preferably a native speaker
  • has time to write 5 to 7 articles each month
  • is available for occasional contact, preferably via Skype chat; we need to be able to consult each other in case it's necessary

Please send your applications as a PM to me (@mpkossen).

I'm aiming to pick two or three people out for a trial, depending on the number of responses. Those people will be provided with two tickets. Your objective will be to write two offers. I will pick the person who writes the best offers. In case you are picked, the trial offers will be published and paid. The one that is eventually selected will have his/her first month as a probationary period after which we will evaluate to see if everything works out well from both sides.

A couple of other things:

  • There is no age limit, though a bit of life experience works in your favor
  • Payments will be done via PayPal
  • Chat availability means: you are invited to a Skype group for the content writers where we chat about anything, really, but mainly about offers, etc. You don't have to sit on Skype all day or tell us when you go out for grocery shopping.

Applications will be accepted up to May 22nd, 12:00 (noon) UTC.

  • I'm having our content writer send in an application for this, seems like a good position honestly. You should get a PM from us in the next few days from her.

    I applied but I still feel like an unknown entity around these parts.
    Changing my username didn't help either lol.

    Don't you just copy paste a template and fill in the blanks? Are you looking to have the offers uniquely written now or?

    That was Zahra (Joel's assistant) and you know how shit those offers were. Until you actually do it, it seems like a trivial task but it takes time and is not as simple as copy and pasting especially if you want to do it right.

  • For a post for a provider that has already been featured I do use the old post as a base. It saves some time on formatting, adding links, etc. Other than that you do actually need to write something. It's certainly not trivial.

    From a reader's perspective it's for me always more interesting to read real host introduction (with some digging other people's experience with host you feature, etc) instead of just canned form listing.

    I agree.

  • i'll write for free, as I need to practice my abilities.

    Is inflation really at 0.5%? What a conundrum...

    You mean working for Nodisto? No, not necessarily.

  • mpkossen said: No, not necessarily.

    Cool. Someone working for someone else than cc brands/affiliates is good for politics IMO. Non-affiliates will probably be dismissed as mercenaries and stuff. But wont be posting offers from own company, though, same, cc personnel should not write for cc brands and affiliates.

    This is something I'd be interested in, but I don't think time permits.

    Hope you find some good new writers and I look forward to seeing the result.

    Everybody has been responded to; those that did get a trial and those that don't. Five people were given a trial, the other 27 were not.

  • Just a short update: trials will be sent out tomorrow to those selected.
