I am looking to establish a long-term partnership with a writer who can consistently deliver high-quality, well-written web content within a mutually agreed-upon schedule.
The current project is just a small sample size of a much larger project. If you do a good job, you can expect the opportunity for continuing work over an extended period of time.
In my current project, I am looking for someone with writing experience to write 20 Product Descriptions in the topic area of Motorcycles. Naturally, it would help if you had interest in the subject matter.
- Be able to do research independently
- Understand how to recognize and utilize industry jargon in the articles, and comfortable writing about the subject matter.
- Posses the creativity to take a slightly dry subject and give it life
- Posses a strong command of the American English language.
LANGUAGE AND CONSTRUCTION:
All submitted content must be written in U.S. English with proper spelling, grammar and sentence structure. The project is for writers who have a strong command of U.S. English. If you have trouble consistently writing grammatically-correct U.S. English, please do not bid.
All work submitted must be 100% original, unique, and content-rich. No filler please (I think you know what it is).
An Excel spreadsheet will be provided listing each item number, name, and link to the webpage that contains the product photo, as well as some facts such as dimensions, etc.
Each description should be approximately 175-200 words and content that describes the "ownership experience" of the product, "what's in it for me," and how the buyer will benefit from the product or features of the product. Examples will be provided. A description should help convince someone who is interested in the product to buy it. Additionally, we would like the descriptions to be typed into the Excel spreadsheet provided when the work is retuned.
Product descriptions should be consistent with that found in motorcycle product catalogs and motorcycle magazines. The use of realistic terminology, jargon and lingo employed by motorcycle enthusiasts is definitely encouraged.
While the entire project consists of hundreds of product and category descriptions, at this point in time you are ONLY BIDDING ON THE FIRST 20 PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS. Please quote your price per description in the bid. I will probably select a couple bids for the first 20. Whoever does the best job on the first 20 will be invited to bid on the remainder and will automatically receive preference to win that bid at the same rate per product description. They will also receive priority consideration for additional product descriptions that are planned over the next 6-12 months. If you specialize in article writing, you will also receive preference for these projects as well. We just had a horrible experience with a previous writer from Elance that we had to wait 7 weeks for delivering a similar project. And the project is still not finished. So we are looking for someone reliable to work that can do quality work and on TIME.
TERMS & CONDITIONS
By bidding, you agree to the following Terms: The project is work for hire. Buyer will retain full and exclusive rights and ownership over the material developed for this project. All writing must be 100% ORIGINAL and UNIQUE content (i.e.: no duplicates, no rewrites, no spins, no auto-generated, etc.). Although the Internet is a great source for research, all content must be 100% original without any copying or "cut-and-paste." Submissions will be checked by plagiarism software which checks for duplication of content. All copy will be solely owned by the buyer and cannot be sold, traded, distributed or used elsewhere without our permission.
In your bid, please include:
1) The price per description;
2) Your interest in and knowledge of the topic.
3) The amount of time needed to finish the first 20 Descriptions (the project you’re bidding on).
4) Samples of your previous work, recommendations and descriptions of your relevant experience.
5) Anything else you consider important (i.e., “bulk” pricing, etc.)
As mentioned at the outset, this is just the start of a much bigger project, and can definitely be ongoing work for the right person.
I am looking to find someone reliable to work with over time on future projects.
Thank you for taking the time to read the project description! Please feel free to ask any questions.
We look forward to hearing from you!
