Hello All Freelancers
I’m Emeralddawnn and I’m looking for a couple of freelancers to add to my business. I have rewrite work coming in on a regular basis and could always use a few good writers to add to the team. If you have the “write” stuff, don’t mind following a few simple rules, can handle criticism and don’t mind working for about $1 or slightly more per rewrite then you can be a part of this team.
What are some of the rules that should be adhered to?
First, anything I can give that has a timeline must be given to me on that day or before. If you notice, you are having a problem meeting the deadline such as family emergencies; please let me know as soon as you can.
Second, all work you do needs to be checked before you send it back. This means there should be no misspelled words (If you use Microsoft Word, then you should be fine) but always double check. Add in the article word count without title at the bottom of the article. Use Dupefree Pro to check for article similarities if this applies to your job. Also, check all of your work through some sort of article plagiarism site. Any will do but copyscape is best. I will also recheck them but you should at least do it yourself. This will be adhered to… any article THAT DOES NOT PASS COPYSCAPE will not count towards your article payment. So be aware of this fact. I’m not trying to be mean but the idea is for me to edit as quickly as possible. Any serious rewriting articles on my part and I will not pay you for those either.
Third, make sure you follow some of the journalistic styles of writing. Anything number less than 10, needs to be written out and commas before the words (and or but) do not need to be there. This is my pet peeve. Unless the article absolutely calls for the comma to be before these, I don’t want to see it in my articles.
Fourth, always title your articles or give me suggested titles.
Fifth, send article batches back in 10s so that I can correct them as we go along.
AS FOR PAYMENT – This is how it’s going to work… if you cant adhere to this then I wouldn’t suggest bidding (SORRY!) Payment is by paypal! One project is upon completion and editing of articles, as given. However, if you have another project, it is upon completion of the entire project. I will add you to my list of freelancers who I work with on a regular basis and pay you when payment has been made to me. I have several providers who have no qualms about this issue so if you do, don't bid. It's that simple.
Now, one more thing… while I value quantity in a freelancer, quality is much more important. When you bid, please send me samples you have done and how many articles a week you can have done. Thank you for your time and I look forward to getting your bids.
I forgot to add that rewritten articles are usually no more than 700 words so keep this in mind.
