Social5 is a social-media management company that specializes in the production of high-quality content for businesses and organizations in 150+ industries worldwide. Led by former newspaper and television journalists, Social5 is seeking freelance writers in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia to keep up with its recent growth. Social5 is looking to hire numerous writers between now and the end of the year. A journalism background is preferred, but experienced bloggers and social media consultants are invited to apply. .

PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES: Producing an engaging blend of Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn content for Social5 customers. Unlike traditional marketing content, this content would be largely brand neutral to allow for distribution to multiple customers. In essence, Social5 operates much like a social media wire service in providing a steady stream of content to subscribers. Writers will also be expected to produce a 200-400-word blog twice a month.

COMPENSATION: Social5 offers a build-your-own-compensation model, in which writers can determine their own compensation based on how much content they are willing to produce. The Social5 rate is 2 blogs and 16 Facebook posts for $100 per month. Social5 draws from this freelance pool for recruiting full-time talent.

WRITER SPECIALTIES: Social5 is currently looking for writers in the following categories: Real estate, insurance, business, finance, healthcare, IT management, tax preparation, law, marketing, home improvement, construction and beauty. Social5 also provides content for major multi-level companies including Young Living and Mannatech, which have vacancies for writers in English-speaking countries worldwide. (Please see the contacts below to apply for a position.)
