What I Need Done:
I will be needing articles on a fairly consistent basis around 500 words each. This job is for 15 articles and the budget is $45 for the whole set. Topics will vary and will cover many kinds of areas from health to electronics to travel, etc. I will need to proofread all articles before project is completed.
What I already have versus what the provider will build:
I will provide the keyword for the article (only 1 per article, nice and easy) and will try and provide source material as often as possible in an effort to keep the project cost down as well as let the writer focus more on the quality of the writing, not the research. However, additional research, while not needed in each case, is encouraged.
Other context/requirements that providers will need to know:
My target audience is English speaking people. The specific niche target will obviously vary from topic to topic.
Specific expertise that I am seeking:
I am interested only in people with a firm grasp of the English language. Typos and incorrect grammar are unacceptable. I require that the winning bidder have access to either AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Instant Messenger, or Skype for communication purposes. Writers with some knowledge of Internet Marketing is a plus so that keyword optimization comes naturally. However, I am much more interested in writing the article for the reader, not for the search engines. The main keyword I provide will need to be mentioned AT LEAST 4 times, but NO MORE THAN 6 and the article must read naturally. There's nothing worse that a keyword dense article that is obviously written for SEO purposes.
Timeframe for delivery, etc.:
I will need the 15 article set within 3 days if possible, 4 days maximum. If the writer and I find a good working relationship, more articles will be needed for sure, at which time the delivery specs can be discussed.
***I run all articles ghostwritten for me through Copyscape to ensure originality.
USA, Canadian and UK writers preferred. Also, articles need to be written free of the dry nature of reporting facts only. While topic accuracy is a must, articles need to be written in a conversational tone.
I will need to test the waters with any writer before the full 15 article job is given. I will pay $3 per article for 1-2 articles in order to get an idea of what your style is. If it works out well then the remaining articles of the larger 15 set will get the go-ahead.
Also, I have noticed a trend in articles where people include links for more information on the article topic. Links will need to be left out of all articles on this job. No links for further information.
