I am looking for a writer to produce regular blog posts for my own blog and guest posts for other blogs.
I will be focusing on the online education industry and specifically helping entrepreneurs and small business owners sell courses online.
The job will entail taking a brief, researching the topic, writing and publishing the blog post on my WordPress blog as well as sourcing appropriate and interesting images from our stock libraries.
I am looking for someone who can write in my tone of voice which is personal, irreverent and sometimes opinionated.
I have included an example brief for a blog post I’m looking for now:
I need a blog post about the opportunities that exist in the online education space. Specifically, there are big opportunities for creative service providers (think architects, graphic designers, web professionals, consultants) to take their knowledge and package it into a course they can sell online.
This post should paint the picture of how big the online education industry is and why there are opportunities for individuals to tap into this space and compete wth the larger organisations like Lynda and Udemy.
Ultimately, this post should plant the seed that this is something they should be doing.
In future blog posts we will talk about the benefits of teaching an online course, but for now just set the scene and give them something to think about.
Here is some suggested reading:
And here is a recent blog post that I wrote myself to give you an idea of my tone of voice.
I like personal, straight from the heart, inspiring content that is backed up by data, experience and battle-scars.
Payment will initially be on a per post basis, however I’m open to a regular monthly subscription if we are a good fit.
