Writing Process

Our freelance writers use available assets to create original, objective product descriptions. We don’t like market speak, jargon, appeals to emotion, and other such drivel. Market speak includes, but is not limited to, hyperbole (the best, the most), logically impossible claims (unique, one-of-a-kind, will change your life), and jargon (circumaural ear cups fit over your OEM hearing tool).

Our goal is to produce content that is easy for shoppers either to skim or read closely and that provides all relevant product information.

Assets you receive may include sales PDFs, video files, images, and diagrams. We expect writers to be able to view and interpret all these files. Sometimes the only information you’ll have is whatever is available online; the ability to find and filter product details is essential.

You must also be willing to familiarize yourself with the product lines you are writing about prior to starting your descriptions. You may be asked to write about any number of consumer items, from antidiarrheal medication to strollers and the latest, greatest running shoes (but don’t call them the latest or the greatest).
