MP3Networks Writers

This is Cornelius Wilson, Head Writer of MP3Networks. We are searching for a team of twelve writers. MP3Networks will focus on independent artist but we will also cover mainstream artist such as Usher, Avril Lavigne, Evanescence, Kenny Chesney, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Alan Jackson, and etc.

We require that our writers have great grammar, spelling, and punctuation skills. If covering the mainstream artists, you will post stories on them that are found on the internet, in magazines or the newspapers. Covering mainstream artists will not be a difficult job to complete. Half the articles will come from the Associated Press, which we will not allow for you to rewrite. Those articles you will post on the website and give full credit to. Articles that are not from the Associated Press we would recommend that you rewrite the story into your own words. You do not have to rewrite every sentence but take the information out of the story that will be helpful to the readers. It should not be too much work for you to rewrite one story because majority of the stories contains a bunch of quotes from the artist, which you do not rewrite.

Here is an example of rewriting a story:

Original:

This year, the MTV Video Music Awards are hitting the road.

For the first time in the show's history, the VMAs will not be staged in New York or Los Angeles. Instead, the 2004 VMAs will be handed out at Miami's American Airlines Arena on Sunday, August 29, the channel announced on Friday (April 16).

"I am extremely pleased that Miami has been chosen to host the 2004 Video Music Awards," Miami Mayor Manny Diaz said of the decision. "In our discussions with MTV, we made it known that our location, weather and amenities make us a natural and logical choice."

The decision to brave South Florida's heat and humidity during the height of summer is a landmark moment for the Video Music Awards and the Moonmen doled out during the ceremony. The show has bounced between coasts throughout its 20-year history, with all past VMAs staged in Los Angeles or New York. Last year's proceedings were held at the Big Apple's Radio City Music Hall, one of the Moonman's favorite haunts.

Revised:

The 2004 MTV Video Music Awards will take place in Miami, FL this year at the American Airlines Arena. This marks the first time ever the show will not be held in New York or Los Angeles.

"I am extremely pleased that Miami has been chosen to host the 2004 Video Music Awards," Miami Mayor Manny Diaz said of the decision. "In our discussions with MTV, we made it known that our location, weather and amenities make us a natural and logical choice."

Here are the benefits of being a writer:

Benefits:

1. Exposure

2. Every writer will get his or her own profile page

3. Access to network of photography that can be used with there article.

4. [url removed, login to view] licenses there work in exchange for 50% of the sale. Meaning you will get 50% of the profit made off your article when another company wants to license the article and picture for their content. You will also be able to choose the selling price.

5. Part of a non-profit network.

6. The chance to build up enough MP3 points that allows them to sit on the Writers board. This benefit will be further explained when writer has joined team.

7. Bonuses and advantages to getting on a board of your specific field.

8. Paid 50% of the advertising that is on your profile page.

Everyone on the MP3Networks Team is expecting for the website to become an instant success. It is hard for me to explain everything about the website since there is so much. When you do become a writer at MP3Networks, you will get access to our forums which will tell you what all is in store for the website.

Here is a list of ways we will promote the website:

Promotion:

1. 2.5 million emails that we are allowed to send to.

2. 200,000 p2p hits (file sharing sites).

3. Coverage in magazines.

4. Search Engines.

5. We have two guys who will be in charge of marketing. Chris from [url removed, login to view] and Stuart, who we call a marketing genius. Chris's website has an Alexa rating of 12,324, which shows you how good of marketing he will be able to do for MP3Networks and that we have big time people who are apart of the MP3Networks team.

Our homepage averages 670 uniques a day. I am not trying to put anyone down but there are bunch of people who own websites who do not average 600 uniques a day, which is not necessarily a bad thing. We are averaging 670 uniques a day just on one webpage, imagine when we launch the entire website how many unique visitors we will be averaging. If we had the complete website up today and we were averaging 670 uniques a day, if you know a lot about website traffic, you would know that we could be averaging 8000 page views a day with 670 uniques a day.

Below is information that you can find on the main page of MP3Networks:

The Concept: [url removed, login to view] is a co-op of idealists whose visions have come together to provide a distinctive universe where dreamers can exchange ideas and share the fruits of their labor. In our court collaboration is king and everyone in the network shares in the spoils. Our partners thrive on coloring outside the lines, bringing the most cutting edge ideas into focus. Finally, a network that offers the tools to create success among members at all levels.

The Medium: Until now such a vehicle for so many resources has never been available on one ticket. [url removed, login to view] will bring the latest concepts, hottest talents and most compelling buzz to every audience for the first time ever. The combined sources of the [url removed, login to view] partners will rival our corporate counterparts and level every playing field.

[url removed, login to view] will strive to provide audiences and artists a one-stop gateway for leisure, entertainment, diversity and opportunity. We’ll supply a balanced forum where creativity and appreciation can grow together.

The People: While we do have the capacity for greatness, it can’t be done without a united effort. [url removed, login to view] has promise to become the largest single force in media and entertainment, but our success depends on the equal participation of everyone on the team. [url removed, login to view] is the culmination of concept, effort and talent. We value new ideas and abstract approaches.

Believe me when I say there is MUCH more to MP3Networks then what has been explain in this message.

The expected launch date is mid-July. However, the website will not launch if it is not ready by mid-July.

We currently have a team of 14, none of the 14 are writers.

We are also looking for a team of reviewers, but our immediate focus now is writers. However, if you are interested in becoming a review please also contact me.

If you feel that you can contribute to MP3Networks without being a writer, contact me and let me know what you can do for us.

We have a web designer but he is also one of our programmers so he has to program scripts and work on the design. The design is online but is not finished. If you are a designer and would like to help complete the design let me know. I have not seen the updated design, it should be uploaded in a couple of days but the current design needs help.

Upon being hired, we will give you immediate access to the forums so that you can learn more about MP3Networks. Then the two owners of MP3Networks will speak to you to give you more information regarding what all we will be doing and what is in store for the website that is not posted on the forums. Trust me when I say that there is tons of information not posted on the forums that will be great features for MP3Networks.
