Write a native ad for Freelancer.com

Contest Brief

I need five native ads written for Freelancer.com. The ads need to include the title of the ad, the landing page content, and it needs to be usable within Outbrain (their content guide is here: [login to view URL]). I do not require the graphic design of the ads, just the written content that will appear on the landing page, as well as the title of the ad.

The ads need to be targeted at potential entrepreneurs and small to medium businesses, with the intent of getting them to post projects or contests on Freelancer.com. This is the end goal, but feel free to be creative in how you approach it. Variety in the five ads that you submit will be seen very favourably.

Some ideas for themes are (please don't just copy them verbatim):

- Improve your productivity with this app that makes crowdsourcing easy
- How many sales is your logo costing you?
- Customers are looking for you online - is your website helping them find you?
- The definitive guide to starting your own business
- etc

Some example ads from other businesses:

    Please extend the contest by a few days. Also, do you want the articles in one entry? And what is the word range for each article? #extended

      There's no explicit minimum, but I doubt that you could get a reasonable article in under 300 words. It can be a fair bit longer if it's convincing, but beyond 1,000 words it'd have to be really solid.

    I assume you want all 5 ads uploaded in one entry? Please clarify and extend the deadline if you can as I've only just come across it. Thanks. #extended

      All 5 in one entry would be ideal, but as long as I can see them that's enough.

      There's no minimum per se, but it should meet the minimum requirements from Outbrain.

    Tim,

    Wouldn’t this contest have been better served split into a writing portion and a web design portion? There aren’t a lot of freelancers here who are equally effective at both. The low turnout, thus far, despite the high prize amount, is evidence of that. Usually, you’d see 10-20 high quality entries by now.

      Tim,

      If you still haven’t received what you wanted, perhaps you can consider extending the contest, and making the following changes:

      * Change the title to “Write a native ad for Freelancer”.
      * Change the recommended skills list to {Articles, Advertising, Marketing, Copywriting, Content Writing}.
      * Remove from the contest brief any reference to designing.
      * (Option 1: To be economical, perhaps you can even consider requesting 5 ads for each entry submission.)
      * (Option 2: If you can’t change the recommended skills list, then maybe you can make the other changes, and invite writers instead.)

      Once you have the actual content, the graphic/web designer(s) should have no problem thereon constructing a landing page. More often than not, with graphic design and web design related work, freelancers request the written content beforehand.

      For the actual contest entry I'm fine with an image showing what it'll look like. For the handover I'd need the format that you've been editing things in, so that I can make any final changes (most likely PSD).
