I'm going to need one or two writers to write articles about digital pianos and keyboards. I am also looking for people I can work with for several months (if not longer), has ideally a good, solid understanding and appreciation of pianos, someone who can take direction well but work independently, and someone who knows how to do research but also write engaging, original content.
The articles will be between 750 and 2,500 words. The articles will likely be piano or keyboard model specific and present the readers with quality pros and cons of each digital piano that's written, as well as talk about the brand, key features the piano has (or doesn't have) that makes it stand out, talk about the price of the piano, the quality of it, the sound it emits, it's unique digital functions and ability, and overall, what makes a digital piano such as the one you're reviewing better (or worse) than a traditional piano., or will be articles that discuss and breakdown or recommend a variety of different models or simply provide piano/keyboard related advice.
All writing must be well researched, checked within Copyscape, have correct grammar and flow well.
When bidding place your bid for initially writing 2 pieces of content at 1,000 words each. This will be an initial test project to find the most suited writer that we can work with for the long term. If we like the work, it will be a continuous amount of work for the new writer.
HOW TO APPLY:
In your application, please illustrate why you would be an ideal fit for this job. What do you bring to the table that you feel makes you stand out from everyone else applying? Why would you not only be a good hire, but someone ideal for long-term work and a long-term working relationship?
WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR:
I'm looking for essentially two things:
1) I am looking for a writer that has actual experience with a wide variety of pianos and keyboards, and can actually incorporate their knowledge of specific piano models and propose their own rating criterias into the articles you write.
That means that, if I'm looking for someone to write an article about a specific piano or keyboard model, I want the writer to have intimate knowledge of this piano--how do the keys feel under your hands (weighted/hammer action/sensitivity, etc), how is the sound (and can you accurately describe that sound in a written article), discussing of tones/voices/sounds, what are the connectivity options, how does the model compare to its predecessor or competition, what are the pros and cons of the instrument, etc.
If you're only intimately familiar with a small number of digital pianos and keyboards--that's OK. I am willing to hire multiple people. But I am looking to find a writer or two that has a lot of experience with digital pianos and keyboards (portable and uprights mostly, but knowledge of grands and even acoustic pianos might be helpful down the line too) and can write an article that's geared towards a reader that's a beginner-to-intermediate piano player.
Also, if you have any experience with other musical instruments (designed for personnal, live or studio use), please let me know, as well.
2) Proper grammar, sentence structure, and article formatting. I also need to have writers turn work in on time. I can be flexible with deadlines, but I can't work with someone longterm that cannot turn in work on time.
There will be guidelines to follow for these jobs, but a lot of creative freedom will be awarded to those hired. It should be noted, however, that this is a ghostwriting job, so while you'll be compensated for every article, you will not receive a byline or "public credit" for writing it.
Please start your application with the words "Piano Reviewer" so I can be sure you've read and understood the job description.
