    FreedomToSave is a daily freebie site posting amazing deals for its audience. We post sweepstakes, deals, freebies, giveaways, coupons, and news about upcoming technology. The website is running on the Blogger blogging platform, and we have multiple positions to fill.


    Compensation
    Compensation for most roles are generally volunteer and unpaid. Paid positions are available depending on work retention and quality, stay longer and get compensated. Some roles such as social, SEO marketing or graphic design will be paid.
    Depending on the role you get into and how long you remain a staff member, you will be allowed to post referral/affiliate links as a form of payment. In other words you will be posting deals/freebies with affiliate or referral link.
    Regular volunteers who post daily for more than 6 months will be allowed to have their own ad displayed on the front page of the site.


    Roles:



    Freebie Poster/Author


    Role: Search the world wide web to find current and up to date freebies. Save images of promotion, repost the freebie offer to our platform while reuploading the images, rephrasing the title and contents. You must make sure the freebie was not posted by a previous poster during the day of which you are posting. Based on how active you are, you may be asked to post some freebies on popular forums. You also must have good language skills, so much so that you can rewrite or create your own content of a certain freebie. Expect to repost at least 5+ freebies per day if you wish to be compensated in the future.


    Graphics Team


    Role: Design logos for the site, banners and cool images that can be posted on the site by our freebie posters. Design templates for freebie posters to use when they post on forums.


    Senior Web Developer (Blogger Knowledge)


    Role: You will be working with the dev team in creating mods for our existing wordpress plugin. You will be working on adding features to the site as well as updating and fixing the current design. Examples of current mod work already completed are: expired posts(expired posts are dimmed via opacity and marked with an expired stamp. backend: admins can hit expire button and posts will automatically expire); bump(backend feature which enables an editor to press a button to 'bump' or 'renew' a post.) Compensation: Generally volunteer work with benefits of free advertisement placements and affiliate offer freebie postings.


    SEO Specialist


    Role: You will analyze and optimize the website for the latest SEO trends to get our website to rank high in the search engines for daily freebies targeting the US consumer group. You will perform mainly whitehat methods of promotion to increase our organic search traffic to our website. Compensation depends on results, be able to provide reports and analysis. We are not looking for fast ranking, we are looking for quality ranking. We understand that the niche is very hard to penetrate and that is why we are looking for the best of the best out there.


    To apply to any of these roles please go to the website and use the Contact Us tab to email us.


    In the subject line please include the role you are applying for. In the body of the email please provide some information about yourself for example, Time Zone in which you live, age, name, skype if you have one, easiest way to contact you, paypal for future payments, etc.


    We are hiring ASAP so the sooner you apply the better and the higher your chance to get the job is. Think of this job as an internship, where you can gain experience so that in the future you can start your own program/website.

    With all the volunteer work and "you get to advertise" talk, does your site actually get traffic or generate revenue?

    LOL... you expect to make bank using Bloggers platform. You realize your competitors are VC funded, or have large amount of capital. Your site has really nothing going for it at this point.

    Frankly, I could start my own competing site and rank it by the time you got a real site built. I'd be happy to help you with SEO, but you gotta have at least 10-20K cold hard cash to realistically enter this niche ... that is if you want to become a serious player.

    You gotta pay, people would like to work. You should pay for any kind of work. Otherwise you got a very good idea for why they work.

    This thread is bullshit and should be moved to The Lounge, because it's just a fucking joke. This is the "Hire a Freelancer" section, where people have a reasonable expectation for getting fucking paid. This isn't the "Beg for Free Volunteer Labor" forum, where dipshits that don't know what they are doing bait and switch people into reading their shitty thread hoping for work and money and instead find a self-serving and doomed-to-failure business idea in a highly competitive niche that they know nothing about.


    Hay, OP you dumbass. I have a better idea. Instead of you soliciting me for my free labor, with the idea that "someday" I might get paid, how about instead you deposit some fucking money in my PayPal account, and if you do this often enough, maybe "someday" I might do some fucking work for you.

    lol.

    lol.

    So you want people to work for free and if they work their ass off then they can post some ref/affiliate links? ROFL.

    What you're saying is a few affiliate links on your site is worth a full time wage of $30k-$40k/year? Do you have any idea how much advertising one could get with that?

    This is the funniest thing I've seen in a while. :)

    Oh please give me an unpaid job on your blogger blog, kind sir, so that one day I too can start my own blogger blog and get unpaid workers to do everything for me!

    You realize that doesn't even make sense btw? Above you said you want to hire a "senior web developer" and "the best of the best seo specialist", yet you're saying it's like an internship where they can gain knowledge?
