Maybe you’re a personal trainer, an avid athlete, or a dedicated gym-goer who’s just looking for some extra cash on the side…
If so, PricePlow.com is looking for you!
PricePlow is Hiring
PricePlow is currently seeking 1-3 native English speaking content writers who have an interest in the nutrition, health, or fitness industries. Personal trainers, athletes, fitness junkies, and college students interested in one of these fields are encouraged to apply.
- 18 years or older.
- Own a personal computer / laptop with stable internet connection.
- Willingness to collaborate with a team through Google Drive, Asana, etc.
- Ability to meet strict deadlines on a weekly basis.
- Maintain quality grammar and have a keen eye for details.
- Preferably a current college student or graduate in a related field.
- A native English speaker.
It’s not required to be a college student or have a major in a related field. It is required to have a solid interest in some area of nutrition or supplementation.
Content writers are responsible for the research of various supplements, exercise fads, and health trends to create timely and effective copy intended to educate and entertain an audience.
In addition to these topics, writers must be willing to write different product descriptions in a sales-minded style. Writers will be responsible for 3-8 assignments per week and additional work may be available at a later date.
Updated 07/23/2013 – A respondent asked for more details, so I’m pasting my response below:
In general, we have four different kinds of assignments:
These can go anywhere from simple to complex. Here’s a more complex one about Rhodiola Rosea (my favorite herb): http://www.priceplow.com/rhodiola-rosea
The new site will have 950 categories. The best way to think of this is that you’ll be writing “The Ultimate Buyer’s Guide on XYZ” — supported by science and ethics.
While there’s no way we can have quality content on all of these at our re-launch, we want the most important (or most interesting) ones done.
Here’s one on MTS Nutrition’s Machine Whey Protein – http://www.priceplow.com/mts-nutrition/machine-whey-protein
For our favorite and most important products, we need exciting, unique write-ups. Stuff like what’s in BB.com’s Top 50. The new site has over 13,000 products and we’re hardly scratching the surface… We want to differentiate for the most important ones.
We need help building out more Top 10 lists (ie Top 10 BCAA supplements), and want a team that can respond to things in the news and keep us relevant. Oftentimes, you can suggest stuff.
For instance, there was a discussion on BB.com that a high school football coach was fired due to giving his team creatine. It would have been nice to make a blog post “defending” him in terms of the nutrition side of things…. but we just didn’t have the bandwidth. Hence, we need more help!
We love working with brands and brand reps! If you want to get paid a bit to write a quality page or make a nice video about your brand (see our PNI page as an example), definitely contact us.
Similarly, we also need some unique brand write-ups for the most popular brands. Talk about who they are, who they market to, their most popular products, link to their Facebook and Twitter feeds… etc. This is something we haven’t yet done much of.
We stay organized using a project management system, and we collaborate within Google Drive.
We TELL THE TRUTH. If some product or product category is total bullshit, we say it like it is and point to the real science / facts to back it up in an honest and ethical manner. For instance: http://www.priceplow.com/african-mango
PricePlow content writers receive a starting rate of $1.75-$3.00 USD per 100 words (ie. ~3 cents per word). The rate scale is based upon talent, experience, and volume, and all payments will be made twice monthly through Paypal.
Can I Self-Promote?
If you’re a personal trainer, bodybuilder, or burgeoning “social media personality”, we’re happy to occasionally have you link to your own stuff in certain types of content, such as blog posts and our YouTube videos.
What about Google Authorship?
Yes – we are currently in the process of setting up Google Authorship for the updated main site, so if you want to boost your own personal presence, we’re all in for it.
If you don’t know what we’re talking about, read this.
How to Apply
Contact Us through our Contact Form – You can address your email to Mike and Riki.
There is no way to upload a resume. We may ask for your resume in our response, but it is not necessary.
You will be given a “paid interview”, so come ready to play.
