    So here's the deal...I need someone to help me grow and start various SEO and IM projects. I am past the point where I can just do it myself and would love to have somebody awesome join me.

    I'm looking to hire someone for $8/hour starting at 10 hours per week ($320/month), with the promise that if all goes well I will continue to increase your hours. I don't care if you have little or no experience, just that you are passionate about the world of SEO/marketing and have the focus and drive to make things happen.

    This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who wants to start their own projects but would like a bit more capital and insider information. I'm fine with this position being a launching pad for your online career, I took a very similar position to this one less than 2 years ago and it really enabled me to succeed. I've only been doing this for about 2 years, but I've come a long way and had pretty substantial success. I plan to make it a priority for you to gain a lot of great experience, insight and tricks that you'll be able to use in the future for your own endeavors.

    Here are a few things you will be doing on a day to day basis:
    • Building websites with Wordpress (Installing through Cpanel, adding a theme and essential plugins, general fine-tuning)
    • Add and schedule posts on a large number of Wordpress sites (pasting article in, doing some header formatting, and adding pictures mainly)
    • Managing writers and other freelancers
    • Writing articles and blog posts when needed
    • Manual Link Building/Outreach
    • Conversion Rate Optimization (making the important pages look good)
    • Keyword Research (I have a process so you'll catch on quickly)
    • Buying Expired Domains (I have a process for this as well)
    • Putting your head together with me to discuss our plan of action for different projects
    • Miscellaneous odds and ends

    If you are already familiar with any of these, that's awesome and you should mention it in the email. If not, that's okay so long as you are teachable and willing to learn and improve.


    Before you apply, here is a little guideline for expectations from both sides:

    I expect you to:
    -Be a self-starter
    -Have at least started (even if you didn't keep it going) a blog somewhere online (preferrably Wordpress)
    -Have a strong command of the English language, both for communicating with people and writing blog posts if the need arises
    -Have a basic grasp of SEO concepts
    -Be interested in a future in Internet Marketing (even if just as a hobby/supplemental income)
    -Sincere drive and excitement for this line of work
    -Get turned on when you imagine having a website that ranks #1 for a competitive term
    -Not dick around when you're on the clock
    -Understand what telecommuting is and is not. (It IS a situation that allows you to make your own schedule, so long as the tasks get done and we make progress each day. It IS NOT an arrangement that you end up describing to your friends as "easy money" because you don't have an IRL manager breathing down your neck.

    You can expect me to:
    -Mentor you in the areas of SEO, affiliate marketing, and social media marketing (among other things that I'm probably forgetting)
    -Always pay you at the end of the week
    -Give you access to my tools/resources once I get to know you and trust you
    -Support and guide you if you decide to start side projects of your own, so long as they remain side projects that you do on your own time
    -Be completely transparent about our project goals and plans moving forward
    -Allow you to make certain decisions and have some creative input into projects once you get a decent grasp on what we're doing
    -Understand that you'll make mistakes and are dealing with a learning curve when you start out
    -Give you your space and not micromanage you (if you end up needing micromanagement than it probably wasn't a good fit anyway)


    Interested? Email me at [email protected] and follow these guidelines:


    1. Write an interesting subject line that includes "SEO" in it
    2. Tell me about any experience you have with Wordpress, SEO, writing, and/or online marketing in general. If you have any other skills that you think might apply, write em down.
    3. Tell me your 2 greatest strengths and your biggest weakness (and no your biggest weakness cannot actually be a strength!)
    4. What are you doing in your life right now? Working? School? Give me a little background information
    5. Write a paragraph about why you would be a good fit to join my team
    6. Include your Skype or GChat information

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    OP what a fantastic offer! I'd jump at the chance to work alongside you but I'm working 2 jobs, have two very young daughters and I'm building my own online future too. Not sure when I even find the time to do it, but you just do, don't you!

    My best wishes that you find a really talented individual here that can help you get to the next level! It'd be interesting to see who's the lucky chosen one!
