Web publisher How To Do Things is looking for writers. The company offers a program where people can get themselves published on a regular basis, and share in the revenue generated from those pages over time.
I spoke with a spokesperson from the company, Erik Budde, yesterday, and he tells me they want to rapidly expand the content on the site, and they plan to be aggressive about recruiting new writers. This seems like a great opportunity for writers looking for exposure on a heavily trafficked site.
The site has over 2,500 “How-To” articles on a wide variety of topics. To be accepted, you must complete a short application, pick the categories where you have expertise and start writing. It’s a good chance to share your expertise, be recognized as an expert and help others. You can also use your profile page to promote your business or website (including a link). The site has grown tremendously in the past year, but there are still many areas without many articles so there’s lot of room to pick good topics.
If you want to be considered for this opportunity, visit this page to get started.
UPDATE: We’ve been contacted by authors who have stressed that potential contributors should be certain to check HowToDoThings’ contract terms before submitting their work. Some authors are concerned with policies that assume all rights to any accepted content, whether it’s published later or not, and offer writers remuneration only from Google AdSense earned on the writer’s article pages.
In addition, if a writer terminates the agreement with HowToDoThings, any previously accepted work remains under contract and the company is free to alter and sell said work using the writers’ likeness and name without further permission from or paying the writer.
