We’re Growing Fast and Recruiting Writers — Join the Team!

We’re Growing Fast and Recruiting Writers — Join the Team!

UPDATE August 28, 2018: We thank you for your interest in becoming a writer at Small Business Trends. At this time, we are not accepting applications. Please check back for periodic updates.

We’re recruiting freelance writers.

If you think you have what it takes to join the Small Business Trends team working in a fast-paced and fun editorial environment to produce the professional, well-researched copy you see here each day, read on.

If you enjoy writing for a small business audience — then we want to hear from you!

It’s important to note that Small Business Trends staff writers are separate and apart from our guest expert program.

Staff writers are those designated with the word “Staff” in their bios. Staff writers:

  • get topics assigned to them;
  • must meet specific word counts, story deadlines, and style guidelines;
  • conduct independent Web research for articles;
  • gather facts and interview sources (if required for a news story).

Candidates should be capable of high volume and fast turnaround. Candidates must also be prepared to proofread their own work, provide in-depth writing and provide timely revisions when directed (with a smile).

This is your opportunity to work in a fun yet professional journalistic setting.  You will gain high visibility, and the work is meaningful because you will be reporting on stories of vital importance to the small business community.

Small Business Trends provides the opportunity to build your professional reputation and your body of work.  Your work has the potential to be seen by an audience of over 1 million small business people monthly.

We pay fast, via PayPal — often within hours of receiving an invoice.  This is a freelance position.

Payment is on a per-article basis.  Pay rates depend on (1) article length and complexity, (2) your skills and experience, and (3) quality of work product.

If you’re interested, please fill out the form below and submit it for consideration.

  9. I have been a freelance/staff business writer/content producer for over 20 years. I have been doing a lot of research over the past several weeks to try to find out new outlets (for me) to freelance for that pay well. I am glad to see you use the word paid above.

    Can you tell us what your payment rate is (per word, per project or something else) and word count? Also do you want writers to supply images and captions for them?

  10. I am new to this type of job though I have what it takes to write. I have not written to any blog yet. Can my skills be tested differently?

    I teach English Language in high school and writing is a key aspect of my teaching.

  11. Hi,

    My name is Joel and I run an outreach service for people looking to build up links to their website.

    Are you open to accepting sponsored posts on your website? I was wondering if you would be willing to work out an arrangement where I can send you a steady flow of posts. Would this be something that might interest you?

    If this is something that we could arrange please let me know :).

    Kind regards,
