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.
