Topic Generation is Hard Work - We Can Help
Coming up with topics for your web site, personal blog or next newsletter is challenging. The first 5
ideas may come with a burst of inspiration, but when you are managing content for a large company or
helping a variety of small businesses, you need help. We have just the idea for you - outsource it! Enlist
writers to give you ideas and really get your content cranking.
Here's how you do it:
Sample Instructions for Topics:
- Sign up for an account if you don't have one already.
- Next you need to place an order, under the "Title" field, instead of typing an article title, put
something like this: Looking for 10 Topics about High Profile Internet Security Failures.
- Only load 1 "Article" when placing a topic order - the writer will deliver all of your topics in one
document that you will be able to review prior to accepting.
- Don't forget to include detailed instructions! If you leave out instructions you won't get
back the robust titles + supporting information that will make your articles sing.
- Set your own price for the entire batch of topics, not a per topic price.
- When creating titles and topical notes make sure they are both informative and engaging.
- Unless otherwise instructed, titles must consist of information that will remain relevant in the coming
months; for example try to avoid mentioning holidays or any other time sensitive material.
- Titles must include any keywords given in the instructions.
- Notes must only mention services provided by the company in question.
- Unless otherwise instructed, the notes should not include overly promotional material.
- Unless otherwise instructed, the notes cannot contain any negative overtones, be disparaging about the keywords or discuss any drawbacks regarding the topic.
- If you include sources for reference or examples, they must all be official (.gov, .edu, or any media outlet. DO NOT USE wikipedia, about.com, ehow, or commercial sites).
- Keep the language and tone of your instructions professional unless otherwise instructed.
