We are looking for high-quality US Native English writers and editors to join our ongoing engagement for 2014. The engagement is for eCommerce Concept Page Descriptions.
Concept Page Descriptions (CPDs) provide short, basic high-level descriptions of everything from general concepts down to very specific products. They are strictly factual, informative overviews in at least 150 words (250 words max).
Writer are given a URL. From there, they review what the inventory of that URL is, and find a Primary Keyword and 2 Secondary Keywords. They'll use the PK twice within the description and each SK once. Overall, they'll create a creative, value-added description.
As an editor, you'll check the PK, SKs, and overall content of the description. You'll work directly in our CTMS (content task management system) and provide feedback to the writers.
If you're interested, please review the Style Guide (http://goo.gl/IWNPOi) and submit the application form (editors: http://goo.gl/t8Wskk, writers: http://goo.gl/3t90Xm). If you pass the test, you'll be put into a paid trial of editing 5 descriptions. If you are interested in both writing and editing, please feel free to apply for both!
What we're looking for:
Creative, outside the box ideas for presenting facts about the concept (e.g., comparisons)
Interesting tips the regular user wouldn't know
Content that is worthy of our world-class brand
Information that helps the user make a purchasing decision
The opening sentence should be very impacting (engaging)
What we're not looking for:
Just another run-of-the-mill product description
Writer Must Haves:
Familiar with eBay, Amazon, and similar platforms
