Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)
$30 - $250

Project Description:
Hi Freelancers!

We are looking for some quality writers to produce unique content for our website. This project is a test run because we are new to Freelancer and want to see how well it will work for our business.

We need 50 articles within a 3-day period at the end of bidding. To do this, we will select 5 bidders to produce 10 articles each at $2.50 per article. Samples are absolutely necessary before selection, so PM me with your samples as soon as possible. If selected, writers will be paid sequentially as articles are received. Writers that produce good content will have the opportunity to receive extended projects from us, as this is a test run in anticipation of a larger-scale content acquisition project.

The articles need to be:

350-450 words long, with 4-6 keywords per article
At a 7-9th grade reading level (there is a tool available for judging this)
Written with a good keyword distribution (not all in the beginning, but spread throughout the article)
Written with proper grammar (no misspellings, proper punctuation, good syntax)
Unique; articles will be checked with Copyscape
Focused on the keyword; not shifting in tone or voice
Useful and informative

The pay will be:
$2.50 per article
Paid per article as soon as it is received
For the article and all associated copyrights

Again, this is a test run, so we are not committed to further projects, but we would very much like to form ongoing working relationships with quality writers on Freelancer, so please send your best work.

PM me to send me samples of your work or to ask any questions.

Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Just to clarify, I will be awarding the project to 5 different writers, each of whom will be contracted to produce 10 articles at $2.50 each. My purpose in doing so is to gauge the average skill level of Freelancers so as to understand whether or not to continue our ventures on this site. If interested, please respond carefully and professionally. Thank you.
