    As the title says, I am looking for a really good writer, I need constant high quality articles, they should have an elaborate and native English, not your average iwriter articles. If interested please read the job description to the end before contact me to make sure you fit.


    You will be responsible for writing engaging, interesting and well-documented articles on social media, marketing, and SEO topics. You must have the ability to research and come up with original, relevant and timely topics.


    You also have to keep yourself up to date with everything new in the social media and marketing industry.


    The job is for 8 hours/day Monday to Friday and it consists of:

    - researching of a specific topic
    - writing an engaging article per day that should be at least 1500 words (articles that are shorter tend to lack information)
    - proofreading and formatting the article for publishing. This includes adding relevant pictures, supporting data, SEO description, and other necessary info.
    - the actual posting of the article on the blog and quick social sharing for an initial boost.


    The skillset I am looking for:

    - Excellent writing, editing and proofreading skills
    - Proficient in grammar and punctuation
    - Must be creative and able to come up with relevant, interesting topics
    - Ability to know the audience’s needs wants and problems and able to address them successfully
    - Have a professional, consistent, and sometimes witty writing style that encourages subscribers to share on social media and elsewhere


    At first, we will discuss and agree upon the topics together, but once you get enough experience you must be able to handle the blog independently. So this is a good opportunity for someone that is looking for a long-term job.


    I would like to see proof of your skills, and I most certainly will not hire without samples/proof.


    If you're interested in this, send me a PM with your pricing details per month and tell me more about your skills and why you would be perfect for the job (sending samples of your previous work would be a very good idea of showing off your skills). Please don't send useless PMs and waste both of our times if you don't fit the description.


    Make your PM count and if you don't get a reply from me please don't insist it means that I'm just not interested in your offer, I will try to reply to everybody though.


    This will begin as a one month contract at first, but if the job quality satisfies I will continue to keep the writer employed as I definitely need someone long term. So please also let me know if you're available to do this long term or you just need it for a month or two.


    I will not pay you in advance for a month. A test period will be scheduled and after that salary will be paid every two weeks or monthly, depending on what is agreed upon, should the applicant be successful during the test period.


    If you have any questions go ahead and ask me in the thread, if you think you are fit for the job, go ahead and send a pm and I will definitely get back to the ones that I like.

    Hi, @coitza.

    I have read your post from the first letter to the last punctuation mark.

    May I ask something? Since you are not willing to pay upfront, would you be willing to work through Upwork so that Upwork can act as an arbiter to secure both parties' interests?

    Glad to hear you read it, considering some of the PMs I got I started to think it was too long as no one seems to have read it or maybe no one knows how to follow instructions.

    As for your question, no, payment will be directly via paypal, I have been a member on this forum for a very long time, I already hired 3 people via the help of BHW ( one has been with me for over a year and a half, the other 2 are newer) I also have a sales thread here with happy clients, I don't think there will be any trust issues here.

    Also, since I saw your signature, I am looking for one person to do this, so the articles have the same voice/ writing style, I am not looking for an agency that has several writers to do the job.

    Its really tough to qualify on your job profile requirement.
    Better I should forward it to some of my professional writers.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I just want to clear things up regarding my being an "agency" for those who are interested to use my content writing services.

    First, while I have a team of writers, I am not like the typical "agency" we know or hear on internet marketing forums. I don't outsource from people whom I didn't interview face-to-face. We only hire writers with years of experience. My HR department implements a strict screening process when recruiting or hiring people.

    Second, I am fully aware that some people prefer to have a dedicated writer assigned for their projects. This is to get a consistent style and tone in writing. Because of my 15-plus years of experience in the content writing business, I have thought about this a long time ago. That is why I assign a dedicated writer for every client who can supply a steady supply of work that is enough to make one writer productive everyday. I assign a team of writers and one editor for bigger projects, too.

    That's all. Thank you. :)

    I am really looking for someone that delivers high quality content, that's why. Sure, if you know anyone that would fit the bill send them the thread.

    Thanks for the clarifications, then do send me your pricing and some samples of your best writer in this niche and I'll take a look, who knows maybe he fits the job :)

    Hi, @coitza. Thank you for the consideration. However, I have to defer. I require an upfront payment. That is the reason why I initially asked if you are willing to work on Upwork so you can comfortably deposit the milestone payment on Upwork's hands (as the arbiter).

    Anyway, some have already expressed their interest for the job. Thanks!

    I know a couple US writers I used to hire. However they require either a written or e-contract to ensure you will pay
