About your Role:

As a freelance writer for Dotdash’s Performance Marketing department, you will help create content that helps readers find the best services to use, the best certification programs to enroll in, the best apps to download, and the best companies to use. So what exactly are we talking about? Every day we’re consumers in some form or another, whether that’s signing up for a meal delivery service or subscription box, buying life insurance, enrolling in a certification program, finding an interior design service, finding someone to repair our credit, or taking an online class.

So we’re looking for writers who have expertise in areas of personal and business finance such as, banking, credit cards, and insurance to help us create unbiased and trustworthy recommendations on these various companies and services that will reach millions of people. If you’ve written commerce content or reviewed companies before, you may be a good fit. Depending on the topic, these articles will be between 1,500 to 3,500 words, and pay is competitive.

You will work closely with Dotdash’s editorial team to submit copy, refine edits as needed to align with our brands’ voice and style, and submit monthly invoices.

About You:

  • Experienced writer who has a history of creating content for commerce or performance marketing, as well as a demonstrated ability to explain complex topics and terms in easy-to-understand language.
