Contently’s Clients Are Looking for Canadian Finance Writers

By Dillon Baker June 29th, 2017

In the name of connecting freelancers to our clients, we publish information about the kinds of freelancers our clients are looking for.  Contently helps top brands create and manage content. As part of that mission, we connect our clients to high-quality writers, designers, photographers, and videographers who can help them realize their marketing needs through beautiful content.

The hope is that everyone benefits: You, our readers, will be first in line for high-paying client work, and Contently can draw from a wide, high-quality base of freelancers to service our clients.

This month, our clients are looking for Canadian journalists with expertise in personal finance, insurance, and banking.

Do you know how to explain the best mortgage options for a middle-income Ontario family? How about the impact of crude oil prices on the Canadian dollar? Maybe you can offer advice on selecting a financial advisor to plan for an early retirement. In other words, you speak the language of the loonie and can translate your knowledge into engaging pieces for both consumers and businesses.

Bylines in one or more of the following publications are highly desired:

  • Advisor’s Edge
  • MoneySense
  • Financial Post
  • The Globe and Mail
  • Bloomberg, Canadian Edition

Pay is determined by clients, but generally falls into the following ranges:

  • Articles with secondary sources (300-700 words) pay $380-$630 USD
  • Reported stories with primary sources (400-700+ words) pay $570-$890 USD
  • Multi-source stories with 3+ primary sources (400-700+ words) pay $1,140-$1,400 USD
  • White papers (1,000-5,000 words) pay $1.70/word USD

  • Our platform allows clients to pay you instantly upon submission. In other words, no waiting around for a check or bothering with invoices.
  • There’s no obligation to accept assignments.
