When we have a new writing project, we search our database for the perfect candidate.
This depends on a few things:
With a firm grasp on the above, our writers generally find the process of writing 300–500 word articles manageable and efficient.
Most of our opportunities can be done in concert with another job. The number of stories needed for a particular client will determine the number of hours required. Because of this, if we think we have a good match for you, we’ll ask you your availability to ensure you’re comfortable with the hours required. Most clients have a minimum of 8 stories per month.
This depends on your expertise in the area, and varies among assignments. As with all writing, research and sources are needed to ensure content is factual and correct. Without a good grasp of the topic or research, the content will not likely satisfy our requirements.
Contracts vary in length and number of articles. Depending on your bandwidth, schedule, etc., we’ll determine what client will be the best fit for you to match the workload you’re able to take on. This can range from 8 to 40 stories per month. We occasionally have one-off opportunities as well.
Besides researching and writing, you may be responsible for:
Promotion will never be a requirement.
Yes, all of our writing assignments require licence-free photos, whether done in Quietly’s tools or written as a long-form traditional article. On Quietly, you'll notice how easy it is to use rights-free images. There is a feature that lets you browse images at the click of a button and insert one at no cost.
We create a content strategy with our clients to determine what stories and headlines you will be writing. This can sometimes take a bit of time depending on where they’re at with their content marketing efforts or blog. We try to give you as much lead time as possible so you have adequate time to write a stellar article. While we are preparing the strategy, we’ll reach out to you to see if the client/workload is a good fit. From here it can be as little as a few days or up to a few weeks until you get your first writing assignment.
We take a look at your skills and qualifications and match you with a client we think would be a good fit. There’s no need to actively pursue an opportunity. By applying, you’re on our radar and if there’s a client that’s a good fit, we’ll be sure to reach out and gauge your interest.
This depends on a few factors, like the number of clients we have and your interest/expertise. Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that every writer will be matched due to overwhelming response, but as we grow we’ll try our best to find a client that’s a good fit for you.
Our clients span a range of verticals. Some verticals include marijuana culture, finance, tech, travel, student life and education, health and wellness, fashion and more.
