Looking for Work? Contently Has an Opening for Asset Management WritersBy Dillon Baker December 11th, 2015
We talk a lot about finding gigs on The Freelancer. Where to look for them, how to secure them, how to make sure you keep them—we’re all about it.
But now we’re going to do something a bit different. In the name of helping freelancers find work, we’re going to start occasionally posting gig openings at Contently, our parent company. Contently works with brand clients to help them create content marketing—basically editorial work, except for a brand instead of a publisher. A good example is Red Bulletin, Red Bull’s popular extreme sports magazine.
The hope is that everyone benefits: You, our readers, will be first in line for high-paying jobs, and Contently can draw from a wide, high-quality base of freelancers.
This week, we’re looking for writers that specialize in asset management to write for our finance clients. In particular, we’re looking for folks based in the U.S. and U.K., but anyone with experience in the field should apply.
The pay is competitive, and there’s a few different formats clients are looking for:
- Blogs (300–700 words) will be $300–$750
- Reported articles (400–1,000+ words) will be $450–$1,050
- Multi-source stories (700–1,000+ words) will be $950–$1, 650
- White Papers (1,000–2,000 words) will be $1–$2 a word
If you haven’t worked with Contently before, here’s the basic gist:
- Our platform pays you instantly upon submission; in other words, no waiting around for checks.
- There’s no obligation to accept assignments.
- Our talent team and managing editors will support you throughout the process.
- The clients are international financial institutions, and should be good additions to your bylines.
And if you’re interested in the gig, here’s how you should apply:
1. Register with Contently by creating a free Contently portfolio.
2. Upload your best asset management and other related clips.
3. Send your portfolio URL and a short summary about your experience to our talent team for evaluation.
Feel free to send this posting to any of your fellow freelancers who may be interested. If you have any questions or suggestions, please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear some feedback.
