Work At Home Writing

Want to work at home writing? About.com is seeking contributing writers to help in various topics including banking, real estate, pets, and sports. The successful applicant will be a creative self-starter comfortable writing for the web.

About.com will offer Contributing Writers in their first two years a guaranteed minimum monthly payment of $500. After two years, the guaranteed minimum monthly payment will be $250. About.com also pays Contributing Writers by measuring pageview growth (month-over-month for Contributing Writers in their first year, and year-over-year every year after) with payment incentives for pageview growth. There is no cap on what you can earn—the guaranteed minimums are offered as a safety net.

Contributing Writers commit to publishing at least 12 pieces of content every month. These articles will be a mix of short- and long-form content (our flexible tools facilitate publishing everything from long-form articles to glossary pages). All Contributing Writers have an editor who evaluates their work on a regular basis. Editors are also available to help make suggestions or critique work. You’ll also work with the Guide in whose site your subtopic appears. About.com also offers other forms of interaction to help Contributing Writers generate ideas and learn from their editors and each other, including email listservs, forums, conference calls, and get-togethers in cities around the US.
