QUANTUM: I need an average of ten 500-word articles written every day for at least the next three months. (Long-term if things go well).
PAY: I will pay $1.5 for the first article and $2 for every subsequent article. If you are good and our interaction turns out to be mutually beneficial, I will increase the amount to $3 per article at the end of three months. (The idea is not to pay you less; rather to pay deserving writers in a fair manner). I will pay through GAF on a daily basis after the articles have been checked and found to be in order.
TOPICS: The articles are to be written on diverse topics. Therefore, you need to be well-versed with multiple topics/subjects. In your bid mention the topics/subjects that you are most proficient in.
SAMPLES: I am not asking for samples of your work; but to inspire confidence in me about your writing skills, please write one small paragraph on each of the following topics. (Keep each paragraph to 3 sentences).
a) The global downturn
c) Popular culture
d) Religious fundamentalism
THE SUCCESSFUL BIDDER: For you to be selected, you need to:
1. Be able to research on your own (besides whatever points I might give you).
3. Be good at British English although you will be required to write for the typical American reader.
3. Ensure grammatically correct sentences. (I don't think I need to elaborate on this).
4. Be good at estimating the time you will take to deliver a certain number of articles and be able to honour your commitment.
5. Be sure of uninterrupted power supply and a high-speed Internet connection.
6. Indicate your time-zone and your usual working hours (local time)
7. Check your e-mail several times each day and be available on messenger when the situation so demands. (Gtalk, Yahoo or Skype should be fine). I will greatly appreciate if you communicate on the progress twice each day.
In your bid please mention the number of 500-word articles that you will be able to deliver per week and quote the corresponding bid amount.
If I find multiple bidders meeting my expectations/requirements, I will post additional projects.
Thanks for caring to read this rather lengthy project description. I am sure you will appreciate that each one of us would rather be safe than sorry.
If you have any questions before or even after bidding please feel free ask.
Happy bidding and hope to get you started on my assignments.
