Be a Freelance Writer for Examiner.com
Are you someone who is passionate and proud of your city? Can you be a credible resource for local information, news and events? If you have a desire to provide your local community with useful information about a subject you love, then the team at Examiner.com would like to speak with you!
Examiner.com is rapidly becoming the online destination for local information, news and events in 60 major markets across the country. Using technologies such as video, photographs, blogs and good old fashioned reporting, Examiner.com will offer useful information the way you’d like to see it!
Examiners are writers at heart, who use words and pictures to inspire and inform, to open dialogues, and to help people tackle everyday challenges. Examiners address situations and opportunities that are unique to their respective cities. They are your helpful neighbors and local leaders. Examiners are informed, reliable, entertaining and authentic.
Examiners are everyday people with knowledge to share. Examiners come from a variety of backgrounds and professions; they are college students, civil servants, retirees, PhDs, musicians, magazine editors and stay-at-home moms. As an Examiner, you can reach thousands of people in your local community and become recognized as the “go to” expert for local information, news and events. You know these people: they get others excited about what they care about in a fun, useful, non-pompous way.
This is not a full-time job. Most Examiners have full-time or part-time
jobs, or are full-or-part time students. This is similar to a freelance
opportunity - but you decide when and what you want to write about.
Examiners are expected to publish a minimum of three posts every 7 days.
That keeps the page current and keeps readers coming back, which generates
page views -and that's the key to our success! The more familiar you are
with Web-based publishing (things like HTML, and uploading photos and
video), the faster it should go. If publishing online is new to you, the
team at Examiner.com will provide the training and tools you need to publish
and promote your articles. We don't expect our Examiners to write long
posts - in fact, brevity is often the key to success. The more posts you
complete, the more page views you generate. Examiners are paid based on a
set "floor" per 1,000 pages views and this adjusts - never below the floor -
based on advertising and marketing gains. Ultimately, being an Examiner is
a great way to inform others about a subject you're knowledgeable and
passionate about, and an opportunity to promote yourself and we hope,
further your career.
The talented people we're looking for have deep expertise in one of the
- Arts and Entertainment
- Bars and Clubs
- Food and Drink
- Home and Living
- Real Estate
We’re looking for people whose knowledge and expertise align with the subjects we intend to cover. If this is you and you have a desire to share your views in useful ways, Examiner.com can give you the voice you’ve been looking for.
One of the best parts about being an Examiner is where and how you work. You can work from your home office, an internet café or just about anywhere else with an internet connection. You set your own schedule and decide what topics to cover.
If the idea of becoming an Examiner gets you excited and
you live in or around the Dallas area, we’d love to hear from you.
