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 certain areas (see below) to help us create unbiased and trustworthy recommendations on these various companies and services that will reach millions of people. If you’re 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 aline with our brands’ voice and style, and submit monthly invoices.

Subscription Boxes

Online Classes (language, industry-specific, etc.)

Career-related certification programs

Food (meal delivery, etc.)

Insurance (any and all types of insurance, from life insurance to health to liability)
