Good evening all,
Ground rules so you don't waste your time or mine:
1) If English isn't your native language, and you can't write perfect English, don't bid. If you fake it, and I end up with poorly written content, then you won't be paid and I'll mark the project incomplete.
2) No copy and paste, or content spun by software - I'm a professional writer, and I can spot the garbage that those programs put out. I will verify that the content produced is legit, and not stolen. I don't care if you research the topic, but show enough respect for the writing industry and properly rewrite the content.
3) If you don't know anything about paintball, that's fine. Just research enough to provide a quality topic. I play paintball professionally, so I'm gonna be able to spot a rambling article that's out of context and poorly researched.
4) No canned bids - I want a writer who will take the time to write a bid out specifically for the project and show me that they're actually interested in writing for me, not just collecting another chunk of money.
With that said, let me move on to the project information. I need 3 articles on paintball using the following topics:
> A comparison of 5 popular brands of paintball ammo (use brand names)
> A comparison of 5 popular paintball helmets/masks (use brand names)
> Tips and strategies for new paintball players
Each article must be at least 1000 words. These are easy topics and there is a ton of content online to use for research. If you play paintball, that makes them that much easier. These articles must be written with SEO in mind. I'll give the winning bidder the keyword list and a little more direction for each article.
Project payment will be handled through GAF with appropriate feedback left when the project is completed. This is a test project. If I like the quality of the content, I'll likely maintain business with the same writer for future projects. I do a lot of professional copywriting work both on and off freelancer, so I'm not against using a quality writer as an assistant to pass future work to.
If you have a website showcasing your content or portfolio I'd like to see that. I'll accept other profiles from online writing communities such as associated content, etc. Attached samples are fine.
Bid $30 - As I'll be paying $10 per article. You excited yet? Good. I expect quality for what I'll be paying. I will not pay into escrow because I won't have funds locked into someone that delivers poorly written content. You can see once you bid that the funds are in my GAF account to cover the project. Payment will be made through GAF once I review the articles.
Writers based in the US, Canada or UK will receive preference, mainly because I'm in the US (eastern standard time) and it makes communication that much easier.
Any questions, use the PMB and I'll get back with you as soon as I can.
