Babies for Beginners is hiring a team of 10 writers to create articles for babiesforbeginners.com. Right now, this site is small, but the owner of Babies for Beginners has run other larger sites and is eager to build this site into the ultimate place for new parents looking for help and guidance as they begin their parenting journey. We’re looking for parents with writing experience, preferably in journalism or other research-heavy occupations, but all experienced writers or bloggers are welcome.
If you’d like to get paid for your parenting and research experience and earn a little extra to pay, then this is a great opportunity for you.
PAYMENT. We pay beginning writers $0.03 per word to start, and our articles are all either 1,000, 2,000, or 3,000 words in length. So you’ll be paid either $30, $60, or $90 per article depending on the length. Article lengths are assigned based on the topic, so you’ll know up-front how much you’ll be paid for your efforts. Research requirements will also be assigned, and most often we’ll group topics so your research and/or interviews can be reused across several articles.
CREDIT. Writers can have their bio appear on their articles and you can mention a social media profile in that bio if you choose to build up an audience over time. However, some articles may be requested to be ghost-written. For example, if we discuss a particular product on our channel, we may request that a writer create an article based on our consolidated opinions and experience with that product and publish it under another name.
SCHEDULE. All writers will be expected to produce two or three articles per month. It’s critical that you not miss a publishing date, ever. Writers who miss a publishing date will be let go. For most freelance writing parents, two articles per month is perfect so they have plenty of time to work on it without being overwhelmed, but writers can almost always pick up additional articles to write if you’d like more work. You can write articles at your own pace and schedule the article to automatically post on the morning of your publishing date.
OWNERSHIP. You understand and agree that all photos, videos, written content, and all other media submitted to babiesforbeginners.com becomes the exclusive property of the thewriteDuffy and you do not have the right to republish that content on your own site.
LEGAL. This opportunity is available for writers around the world. This is a freelance writing gig and you will be an independent contractor, responsible for your own taxes, benefits, etc.
