Writer for dog related websites
SEO Copywriting Creative Writing English - speaking English - writing
Hello there! First of all, I want to have a word with you: intro video :)
Do you consider yourself an expert in dogs? Do you spend more time watching cute dog videos on the internet than you spend time with your family? Do your friends constantly come to you as their first port of call for all things related to dogs? Do you also love writing and blogging?
If you answered yes to these questions, then read on. You can scroll down if you’re a cat parent or allergic to pets, as well :).
My name is Bogdan and I’m a project manager here at Oswaldo Media and I will be your point of contact throughout the whole recruiting process.
One of the websites is animalso.com. We treat our websites as a complete resource guide for anyone who owns a dog or looking to buy, adopt or foster one. We focus on providing simple, actionable advice on such important topics as “Dog Ownership.” Our goal is to ensure our readers follow through with our guidance and get decent results in keeping their dog both healthy and happy.
And we are doing pretty well – we have more than 400 000 monthly visitors across our portfolio of websites. This means, 13 000 dog lovers from all over the world read our articles every single day!
We’re looking for a few expert dog writers who can help us expand our site, animalso.com, and several other websites.
This is an exciting opportunity for you to write about the thing you love most - Dogs! Whether you’re a hobbyist or consider yourself a pro on the topic, we want you to write for us. You’ll be covering a wide range of topics, including the wider pet genre in general.
For this, we need a true expert - no fakers here, please! If you don’t truly have a passion for dogs and writing, it’s not going to work, I’m afraid.
Still reading? Great!
So, what’s in it for you? Not only do you get to make money from your passion, but you’ll also be part of a wider team who are driven to grow the site further. We’ll give you a consistent, flexible flow of work alongside world-class editorial tools to ensure you’re able to produce the very best content with minimal bottlenecks.
You’ll also get to be part of an exciting, growing project with a bright future and for which we have big plans in the pipeline.
Please note that we have very high editorial standards compared to most other blogs. Every post that we publish goes through our strict editorial process where we check all claims and ideas for accuracy as well as the consistency of thoughts.
You'll be assigned topics by myself or an Editor and given a submission deadline. It's quite likely that in the first couple of weeks there will be a lot of feedback and editing required, but generally, once a writer gets into the swing of things, that part should be minimal.
==What you’ll do:==
1) Deep topic research: article outline creation (headings/subheadings/subtopics)
2) Awesome Quality Writing
3) Searching for images
