Writer of Seeking Alpha Articles -- 2

Job Description:

READ BEFORE RESPONDING. If you can't read, you can't write.

No English as a Second Language please. I've hired ESL contractors for non-writing projects and had great results, it just isn't a good fit for this. So far I've received about 40 submissions here and on Freelancer. They are full of strange phrases, poor grammar and incorrect punctuation.

I’ve published 44 articles on Seeking Alpha but no longer have time due to other research commitments. I’d like to work with financial writers who have a good understanding of income securities – high dividend stocks, ETFs and royalty trusts.

Here's an example of what I'm looking for, published Nov 28 on Seeking Alpha

Writers I work with can use this as a guide -- not an exact, fill in the blanks copy -- but can mimic it to a great extent.


Seeking Alpha pays between $40 and $200 an article depending on reader interest. The site average is $126. I’ll pay what they pay me plus $50 for any article accepted by them. The articles initially should take about 4 hours to write and upload. With some practice that should fall to around one and a half hours. If however, Seeking Alpha rejects the article and you are unable or unwilling to make the required changes, I'll pay a fixed price of $10, leave no feedback and not assign future articles to you.

The articles I need describe either:

(1) The attractiveness of particular high-dividend stocks and ETFs that are identified by an Algo I've developed. The Algo is based on a mean reversion strategy -- in other words buy on weakness, sell on strength. I run this Algo all day long and it identifies two or three buy situations a week, more in down markets, less in up markets.

(2) The sell recommendations, again based on the Algo. These are current holdings that we are selling to lock in profits after price appreciation.

One of the most difficult and time-consuming aspects of writing investment articles for platforms like Seeking Alpha is deciding what to write about. In this case, the Algo takes care of that. I just writers to explain why, based on stock price charts and historical patterns, a particular high-dividend stock is trading at an attractive price, or, conversely, at a price representing inordinate short-term risk.

For the right person, over time, the opportunity exists for a full-time position.

Suitable candidate qualifications:

• If you've worked via Upwork in the past, a client rating of 4.5 or above. No more than two "No feedback given."

• Available for at least a few hours each week east coast US time.

• If you respond, the first thing I'll try to figure out is if you've actually read this description. Most potential contractors don't. That won't work here. If you respond, please include at least one article you've written recently. If you don't, I'll assume you didn't read this and will ignore your indication of interest.

• Fluent in English.

• Capable of consistent content output. Telling me you are too busy after you've agreed to take on an assignment will likely result in me assigning the article to a different writer, even if you've spent time on an article. So think through your commitments before taking on an article.

• No teams or companies please. I want to get to know, and work with, individual writers.

And thank you.
