My startup "Fact:" is looking for a virtual assistant who writes English very well (ideally with some writing experience: blogging, articles, anything that shows us he or she writes fluently and elegantly without grammar or spelling mistakes). This person should be curious to learn, so he or she enjoys the job.
The first job would be to collect interesting facts from the internet. You can scrape some popular websites that we can suggest to you, when authorised. Either manually or with a bot. Do you do that?
We can also help if needed in collecting facts, as well as supply lots of information.
These facts should be organised together with trusted sources (like scientific articles or trusted newspapers proving they're correct) and relevant pictures.
You should write them slightly differently (more elegantly, in a condensed way - in less than 250 characters, the shorter the better)...
And finally organise them by category in spreadsheets / shared database, and eventually in our system in the future.
At our current speed, we can do 100 facts each per day on average, on an average 8h day, but since we have many other things to work on, we're looking for help. So we would expect at least 100 facts/day from the virtual assistant you choose from your team, since he or she would do only this task initially. If he does more, that would be amazing.
Assuming 1 fact every 5 minutes over 8h days, so more or less 100 facts a day like we do, we could employ him / her for 5 working days initially to finalise 500 facts.
If it works, we will first employ him/her for another 25 working days (hopefully at a discount for the longer work) to arrive at a total of 3000 facts, on top of our ˜ 500 facts from our side.
And then if everyone including you is satisfied, he or she could become a full-time assistant potentially, moving on to other important work too.
Do you supply this type of service, and could you do a lower cost per hour in the future, if we move to longer-term arrangements?
It would be ideal for us to start on November 1st. We're also considering other options through Indian entrepreneur friends, but we see you have a good reputation!
If you reply positively, I will give you an example of what a short fact with a picture looks like with our design.
