What is the PubLoft Writer Network?
The PWN is the amazing community of vetted writers and editors working together to produce the best blog content for our clients. We’re made up of wordsmiths and linguists from all walks of life, and our primal directive is to function as a team that improves with every post that goes out.
Come hungry for work and ready to grow professionally, and you’ll fit right in.
Do I need experience writing? 👶
Yep! As a PubLoft writer, you’re not expected to write flawless posts—that’s what the PWN is for. Our goal is simply to help you learn and improve for your benefit as well as the benefit of our clients and their readers!
With that said, we do require a certain level of skill in order to write for our clients. To get into the Network, you need to show that you’ve got a way with words and know how to craft captivating blog content. If you're newer to writing, there are resources online to help you start a blog (and even make some money off of it!) . Start a blog, practice, and keep writing! This is how you become a better writer.
So, how do I get in?!
In order to discover the best writers, we’ll ask you to take part in an extensive vetting process that helps us understand your skill level in multiple avenues, including grammar, fluency, and creativity, as well as topic research and attention to detail.
We ask some applicants to write one free post if we can’t get a clear picture of your abilities from your portfolio. However, if your published work is a resounding testament to your linguistic prowess, we’ll offer you direct access to our paid customer posts. Knock it out of the park a couple times, and you’re officially accepted into the Network. 👏
Whether you’re a pro ready to knock out posts, or need a little PubLoft nurturing to be client-ready, we’ll always give you a shot at writing and provide you with helpful feedback to improve your work.
How long does vetting take?
Naturally, that all depends on how quick you are. The fastest we’ve seen applicants get into the PubLoft Writer Network is within one week, and we’ve had applicants stay in the vetting stage for weeks because they didn’t accept new posts. It’s all up to your hunger levels!
Once I’m in, how much, how often, and how do I get paid? 🤑
We pay you through PayPal, every other Friday. We’re currently offering $150 per post, with a potential bonus based on how easy you make the editor’s job. Over time, your base pay will increase, and the bonus will always be there.
What kinds of clients will I be writing for?
All types! Most of our customers are tech startups, because that’s who we’re looking for, but as we grow we expect to work with companies of all sizes, in all industries. You’ll have the opportunity to pick your preferred topics and write posts that align with the subjects you care about most.
How will I know what to write about?
Every customer has their own industry, their own specialty, and their own voice. As a result, each assignment includes details and specifications like writing tone, links to references, and the angle the customer would like to take.
Every few days, you’ll receive notifications for posts that are “Up For Grabs!” When you claim a post, you own it. Do good research, get creative, and become a little more of an expert on that topic each time you write—that’s the beauty of what we’re doing here.
How often will I receive new assignments?
Remember that it’s up to you to accept posts as frequently as you want, and as often as you’re able to handle without sacrificing quality. As we grow, our goal is to have enough work for every writer to be writing full-time! In the long-term, that can mean up to 2-3 posts per day—for now, two posts per week is a good baseline to set your expectations.
Are you looking for editors too?
If you’ve truly got a knack for grammar, readability, voice, and more—we definitely want to know about you. Our editors are the type of people who cringe when they read about “the amount of people in a group” or “rapidly-evolving trends.” If you obsess over carefully crafted copy and catch every typo you read, let us know when you apply. 👌 You are a special breed of linguist, and don’t necessarily need to enjoy or be good at creative writing. We’re open to folks who only want to edit.
