SitePoint: Newsletter writer

Headquarters: Melbourne, Australia

URL: https://sitepoint.com


Sitepoint is looking for a part-time contractor to write for our newsletter with almost 500k subscribers! This will be one weekly newsletter with the potential of writing for additional newsletters in the future.

Firstly, a bit about us…

SitePoint is one of the OGs of the first Internet era. We started it back in March 2000. SitePoint has serious mojo!

We reach over 13 million visitors (web professionals) every year (82% organic / 14% direct) – we have over 168,000 pages indexed in google – 64,500 referring domains – 10.8 million backlinks -and our domain authority is off the charts! We also have over 497,000 active subscribers to our weekly email newsletters, 116,000 Twitter followers, and 266,500 forum members.

What we’ve built at sitepoint.com is a brand and community amongst web enthusiasts, and a consistent stream of people eager to learn who come to us for the latest tutorials, tools, and resources to stay ahead of the game. 17,000 members pay for an annual or monthly subscription to access our e-learning platform “SitePoint Premium” plus 266,500 free accounts.

We’re also bootstrapped and profitable… We know, it’s almost unheard of these days! We’ve been in business for over 23 years, and we’re not planning on stopping anytime soon.

By the way, we also started 99designs.com (sold to VistaPrint), Flippa.com (#1 marketplace in the world for buying and selling online businesses), and are both angel investors in many successful tech startups (jump on LinkedIn).

What we’re after…

We’re trying to build a badass newsletter that developers and tech-enthusiasts will love. And we need a great newsletter writer to help us. The Hustle, TL;DR, MorningBrew, etc….all these newsletters are great because they have great writers. That’s who we’re looking for.

We need someone with technical chops who can write. Someone who is already spending their time on X and other places consuming the most recent tech & developer news.

Ideally, you’re a developer yourself. Maybe you already have a newsletter or YouTube channel where you’re building a personal brand and you have some time to dedicate your time to a weekly newsletter.

To start, we just want to make our current weekly newsletter great. After that, we want to explore adding additional newsletters (specific to tech stacks) that are weekly.

What’s in it for you?

Ideally, we’ll work out a price on a per-newsletter basis. Or maybe even a revenue share on our newsletter ad revenue….we’re open to all kinds of ideas! If you’re someone already building a personal brand, we’ll help you leverage Sitepoint’s newsletter for your brand as well….it will be a win-win!

The hiring process…

First, fill out this Google form: https://forms.gle/be8HmrszKvftgseT9 (or click apply in the job post)

In the application, we’ll ask you to write about 1 trending newsworthy story. A headline and a paragraph is all that’s needed.

If we dig your writing style, and it seems like it will be a good fit, we will reach out! All-in-all, we hope to have someone writing for us in the next couple of weeks!

We hope to hear from you!
