Freelance Bloggers are invited to write for GoDaddy.com‘s community blog, The GoDaddy Garage (est. 2016), which publishes in-depth articles on a wide range of topics encompassing digital marketing, website design and development, small business marketing, WordPress, online security, and more.
The purpose of the blog is to help newbies and experienced pros in various industries and niches develop and run a successful website. The blog caters to two specific audiences: small business owners and web developers.
For small business owner, the blog needs topics related to:
- Planning and launching a small business
- Marketing a small business
- Managing a small business
- Securing a business’s online presence
For web professionals, the blog needs topics related to:
- Website design
- Web development
- Working with clients
- Website and IT security
- Real-world stories about users who use GoDaddy services and products on a daily basis.
All articles must offer readers fresh insights and strategies, and reveal how to successfully execute those strategies to produce positive results.
Writers receive assigned topics from the editorial team but are also encouraged to pitch their own article ideas.
Because the blog’s editorial tone is entertaining, informal, and sometimes irreverent, writers should aim to write in the same style and speak directly to readers. Additionally, writers should strengthen their articles by adding citations, concrete examples, and links to primary or secondary sources when necessary.
Compensation: varies per article based on word length, topic complexity, and author influence.
