Hey guys, I haven't posted here in a little while. For those who know me, you are well aware I own many businesses and IM is just a hobby for me. With my main business being project management. I suck at doing things myself, but I am great at managing other people to accomplish tasks. One of the greatest things I have been able to do with my life, is surround myself with successful people. I'm a complete dumbass, I'm not good at anything, but I knew well enough to make friends with the right people. One of my very close friends is a magazine publisher. We were on vacation together last week out of the country. When we were flying back, somehow the subject of internet marketing came up. He knew about it, but didn't really have any idea what it was. Anyways, after a 9 hour flight chasing the sun back to the US, we got off the plane with him telling me I had 30 days to come up with print for an Internet Marketing/SEO hardcopy magazine. He's not willing to put me on contract for full distribution yet, but he is willing to put me on contract for distribution to the magazine stands he owns in every major airport in the US. He is footing the bill for the pro designer, editor, publishing, and distribution. The only thing I have to come up with is the journalism since I have the contacts (BHW). Part of the deal is that everything from the first issue is going to net out to zero for the first copy. After that I get ~30%, which is pretty good in the publishing industry. Here's the rules: 1. ALL ARTICLES MUST BE 100% ORIGINAL. You will be signing a legal binding contract to be a freelance journalist for me. My business partner will sue the ever loving shit out of you if you even partially plagarize anyone. He will find out. 2. You must be willing to give me your full legal real name, address, etc. As you will be signing a contract. 3. Your english must be perfect! I don't care if you are from the US or not, but I had better not be able to tell if you aren't by your articles. What I need: 1. The first issue will be a about all general IM topics. The publisher has agreed to 92 pages, with 14 of those pages full spread advertising. This leaves me 78 Pages. I need experts in SEO, PPC, PPV, PPD, Domain Flipping, Social Marketing, Adsense, Youtube Marketing, and basically every topic of expertise. Don't be pissed if you get edited out, it happens. 2. You will write 3-5 drafts of each article you produce for me. When you submit a draft, I will send it to my business partner's editor, and he will tell you what to change, re-word, etc. What You Get: 1. A once in a lifetime opportunity to become a published expert on a topic, with your name being on print at over 120 locations worldwide. 2. Recognition as the author of the article. 3. Per 600 words, you will receive one 100x50 pixel block of hard print advertising. That's right, I will let you plug your own ventures into my magazine. Consider these 3 things your extremely generous compensation. Think long and hard about what you will put in the mag. As this will be hardcopy. No one will be able to point and click and go straight to your website. People will have to actually read it, then go to their computer and input the url, or search by hand. How to Apply: Private message me here with the following information: REAL LEGAL NAME: Location: Area of Expertise: Email Address: Skype Name: "IF" You are selected to become a journalist, I will also need your full address for contractual reasons. For the selection process I will ask you to write an article about something stupid, not related to IM in any way, just to judge your journalism skills. It will be something that cannot be used for any other purpose. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity guys, I need the pros for this one. Thanks, John (AKA Cnotey) EDIT: Apparently, I forgot to make something clear. In the US you have to be 18 years old to enter a legally binding contract. Sorry kiddos!
