This is a paid-per-article, freelance, work-from-home position. Pay is very competitive. Previous experience as a professional writer is required, and you must reside in the United States.
We're looking for people who will hit the digital pavement to research and write feature-length narratives about social media teams or publishers' struggles and successes, as well as trend pieces that involve speaking with sources and drawing conclusions from data. You should also be able to closely follow a style guide and our established processes for formatting and editing work — basic professional writer stuff.
*Write timely, engaging narratives and profiles about current trends, strategies, and stories that are setting the tone for the social media marketing and digital business spaces.
*Complete 2-4 articles of around 800 to 1,000 words monthly.
*Learn and follow best practices and editorial style.
*Respond to comments on both social networks and the site itself.
Desired Skills and Experience
* Previously published writer with professional experience in the social media or tech industries, especially as they pertain to business and marketing
* Strong writing skills, including an ability to write bullet-proof, intellectually stimulating content while adhering unfailingly to style guidelines and editorial processes
* Experience and comfort interacting with notable industry professionals, ideally with a roster of existing contacts
* Knowledge of social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and more as they relate to marketing and business
* Work well with deadlines
This is a part-time freelance work agreement and a work-from-home position. The accepted applicants will be paid per article at a very competitive rate.
How to apply
Email a cover letter describing your experience, knowledge, and whatever else you bring to the table. Also include three professional writing samples on the web — personal blogs won't cut it. Please include “Contributing Writer, Sprout Insights” in the subject line.
