I'm looking for someone who can rewrite content for me on a long-term basis.
The content may include: Articles, books, blog posts, sales copy.
You need to be able to *focus* on the project and deliver the results relatively quickly. For example, if I know that a project takes 24 hours total to complete, I would expect it within 5-7 days from the time you commit to it (3-5 hours of writing a day).
You need to be able to rewrite the content in such a way that the average person can understand and gain value from.
You can do this by using the active voice. For example, NOT "your attention is demanded" but "pay attention." I'd say that 90% of articles out there use the passive voice. The sentences you write need to be in the active voice (when possible).
Another important point is to use very short sentences and very short paragraphs. Use more periods and fewer commas. Hit the "enter" button more often. I often get frustrated, because I have to edit the rewritten content myself.
You need to have excellent grammar skills and be able to spell check. Sometimes, the content that will need to be rewritten may not be 100% gramatically correct. You need to be able to pick these things up.
As a small test, please re-write the following (intentionally horrible) paragraph, based on the guidelines I just mentioned above:
"If you have a want to become a world known wrestler than you need to be very strong and pay attention to you're diet and exercise regiment, watch DVD's from your top 3 competitor's fights so your prepared to fight them, better be prepared then sorry. Try to stay focused when fighting, this paragraph needs to be edited for grammer and typos."
Please rewrite the above paragraph and send it to me via PM (don't post in the open).
Also, let me know what your rate per word would be. The amount of the content to be rewritten would vary. But for now, please give me a quote on 10,000 words (about 20 articles of 500 words each or 40 articles of 250 words each - you get the idea).
I've been told that I'm a perfectionist. If you happen to be one too, then please get in touch :-)
Looking forward to hearing from you...
