Backfire is hiring a team of 10 writers to create articles for Backfire.tv. Right now, this site is brand new, but the owners of Backfire have run massive sites with millions of pageviews, and are eager to build this site into the ultimate place for gun nuts to unite. We’re looking for experienced gun enthusiasts with good knowledge to share, but it’s okay if you’re just a passionate hobbyist without experience in the gun industry.
If you’d like to get paid for your firearms knowledge, and earn a little extra to pay for your hobby, then this is a great opportunity.
PAYMENT. We pay $0.05 per word, and our articles are all either 1,000, 2,000, or 3,000 words in length. So you’ll be paid either $50, $100, or $150 per article depending on the length. Article lengths are assigned based on the topic, so you’ll know up-front how much you’ll be paid for your efforts.
CREDIT. Writers will have their bio appear on their articles and you can mention a social media profile in that bio if you choose to build up an audience over time. However, some articles may be requested to be ghost written. For example, if we reviewed a particular gun on our channel, we may request that a writer create an article based on our opinions and experience with the gun and publish it under another name.
SCHEDULE. All writers will be expected to produce three articles per month. It is critical that you not miss a publishing date, ever. Writers who miss a publishing date will be let go. For most freelance writers, three articles per month is perfect so they have plenty of time to work on it without being overwhelmed, but writers can almost always pick up additional articles to write if you’d like more work. You can write articles at your leisure and schedule the article to automatically post on the morning of your publishing date.
OWNERSHIP. You understand and agree that all photos, videos, written content, and all other media submitted to Backfire.tv becomes the exclusive property of Income School LLC and you do not have the right to republish that content on your own site.
LEGAL. This opportunity is available for writers around the world. This is a freelance writing gig and you will be an independent contractor and receive a 1099 at the start of the year. Backfire and Backfire.tv are owned, operated, and published by Income School LLC, a limited liability company headquartered in Star, Idaho.
