I am creating an informational website on basic/intermediate computer/internet technologies and need original content created for the website. I'm looking for a freelancer to create 1000 pages (500+ words) of original, non-plagiarized content on various subject matters. The material will be somewhat technical, but nothing extremely detailed If anything is referenced, it must be properly annotated and sited.
The freelancer should have a background in technical writing, be fluent in english, be interested in computer technology, and be able to write without spelling and grammatical errors. The content should also be technically sound and I will check for the accuracy of it in addition to checking that it isn't being plagiarized. In fact, I'll read every word.
My timeline is 1.5-2.5 months for all 1000 pages or about 100 pages of content per week. Please give me a quote for the entire project as a whole.
ongoing work beyond this project is highly likely depending on the quality of writing.
Payment will be paid in 10 installments. Please send me samples of your work and i will discuss more of this project in further detail via the message board.
There will be about 20-40 subject matters. The more detail, technical the content, the better, but right now we're starting on the general stuff... Please send me links to writing samples and please ask questions!!!
The length of the page is dependent on material chosen. Ideally it should be between 1000-1500 words long, but some topics don't need that many words to explain. The quality of the explanation is very important along with grammer and spelling. I am very technically inclined. I am hoping to get another proof reader who isn't and if he can't understand or grasp what is being said, then take the time to make it longer. The page can be spelled correctly, grammatically correct, but if no one can learn something from it, then it's pretty useless.
More clarifications... The content will be explanatory in nature. Also, if the content is not acceptable for any reason, we will submit it back for revision. Freelancer has option of revising it to our satisfaction or abandoning it and doing something completely different. The abandoned version may still be used by us and not counted toward the project amount. We are reasonable people so I doubt that will come to that.
Freelancer will choose the content to write about. We have subject matters we want content written for, but we know that the freelancer probably has technical experience and done research in a few areas and thus knows them very well and can write about them easily.
Also, as i said before, length of the page is arbitrary. it should be enough to explain things clearly. Minimum is 500 words. There is no maximum. If you want to write 20,000 words to explain something, go ahead. All I can ask is that someone intelligent can learn something from it.
Thanks for all the bids. I need to bring up some more points of clarification.
All content must be original. You may use previous work as long as it is not restricted in any way and ownership/copyright can be transferred to me without delay or problems.
Ownership of created content is mine. After each payment milestone, I will have exclusive rights to the content created. The service provider may reuse some of the content as samples of work, but may not transfer it to another 3rd party for compensation or not. obviously, i don't want additional competition. Please adjust your bids accordingly.
Timing is key, but not absolutely critical. As long as a service provider can commit to a certain number of pages/week and is fine that i don't want to transfer funds more than 10 times, then all should be well.
Any future clarifications will be made presented in a word document to shortlisted service providers before I pick the winning bidder.
