I've been writing online content for a variety of sites for well over five years now. In that time, I have seen a lot of sites come and go, and have been fortunate enough to have created a solid career from my writing experience. In fact, it was what I learned writing for content sites, along with my passion for the web, that led me into consulting with businesses about their online content strategy and social media plan. One thing I've learned, sometimes the hard way, is that it is always the sites with the best laid foundation that stick around, attract quality writers, and do well.
About The Free Resource
Hence, I am truly pleased to be a part of a website called The Free Resource. While I am admittedly biased (I helped create it, after all), we're doing something unique in the content universe. The Free Resource believes that readers should not have to search through pages and pages of spam to find information they want from sources they can trust. So each article not only supplies the information readers seek, but furnishes links to credible sources to back it up. By doing this, we create trust with our readers, while signaling to the search engines that we only offer credible information from highly trusted sources. This methodology helps establish writers as more than just people who are trying to make money online. It demonstrates the thought and the work they have put into providing information of value, setting them apart from the fly-by-night type who think writing online is a quick and easy dollar earned.
While we're a start-up and don't have a lot of the bells and whistles writers like from other sites, we'll get there. We've focused the experience around the writers, offering up a generous 50% revenue share and a transparency that doesn't exist in other sites. We have contests in the works, bonuses available to our most prolific and dedicated writers, and we are quickly making a name for ourselves in the web world. The editor-in-chief and I attend valuable networking summits to spread the word, like we did at the recent Mashable Summermash in Chicago.
The Free Resource is Hiring Writers
We are actively recruiting writers, and I would encourage anyone who wants to get in on the ground floor to take a few minutes and apply. Peek at some other articles to get a sense of the kind of writing we're looking for. Your sample doesn't have to be new, it can be previously published, as long as it shows off what you're capable of. All articles at The Free Resource are edited before publishing, and we use WordPress to make it easy for writers of all experience levels. Writers can publish as often or as little as they wish, in any topic they so choose. Not sure what to write? We have pre-determined titles and options we can email you, as well.
Please feel free to send any questions to our editorial team, or I can address them in your comments. The Free Resource is definitely going places, and we'd love to take you along for the ride.
