WordsRWeapons – A Different Kind Of Writing Company
Hi, this is the CEO of WordsRWeapons here explaining what you are about to get into if you decide you’d like to work with us.
First of all, let me tell you what I believe.
I believe that writers aren’t made, they are born – born with a love for the written word and the effect it can engender in a reader.
I believe that businesses aren’t people, that people are people and as such a business should be transparent to the people that do business with them. In other words, honesty first, and honesty means complete transparency to the folks that we pay as well as with the folks that pay us.
I believe that people come first, and that if you’re smart, you can make sure that no one has to suffer balancing work with happiness. You have to work to live in life, but that doesn’t mean you should live to work.
I also believe that no one person in a company is more important than anyone else. That means that no one should be getting paid more just because they are a manager – they should be paid in proportion to the value of the work they produce.
Finally, I believe that cooperation is better than competition. A company grows stronger if people are working together towards a common goal, and if they know that others are their to help them along the way when things get tough.
All of what I believe has gone into creating WordsRWeapons, a company owned by the people that work for it.
Our rates are low, because that’s what companies want right now. The plan of course is create a company that command higher rates – but we’re going to have to pay our dues first. So how can we grow, demand great content from our writers while still admittedly paying low rates?
It’s simple, you only take on the jobs you want that fit with your schedule.
We have long-term relationships with our clients, who want regular work from us. We KNOW we don’t pay the best rates, but the work is always there, regardless of your availability.
So what we do is give you assignments based on your availability. If you’ve got other projects that pay more that you’d rather work on, we don’t care. Heck, I’m happy for you.
But no writer is busy 100% of the time. If you are, you aren’t looking for work.
I should know, I built this company as a freelance writer. No matter how good you are, if you are looking for work that means you want more money. So, as a writer, you have two options. You can continue to hunt for higher paying work, or you can do some quicker, easier to get, lower paying gigs.
That’s where we come in. If you’ve got a dead week and you’ve put in your networking time to find more work, but there’s just nothing available, you update your calendar that you’re available for work. I assign you work based on that availability. If you don’t like the assignment, you don’t have to do it. If something better comes along, as long as you give me a fair and decent head’s up, I just get a different writer to get it done.
The majority of our content might at most take a 1/2 hour to write. Maybe you have time for 5 or 6 articles a week, in addition to all of the higher paying gigs that are available. Maybe you are good enough that you can take one of my 1/2 hour projects and do it in 15 minutes. Better for you, better for me.
This way you can spend more time working instead of hunting, and we aren’t keeping you away from better paying gigs. At the same time, we get great writers at really low prices, and our clients win as well.
If all of this sounds appealing to you, great. Simply send us an email to jobs@WordsRWeapons.com including a cover letter, your resume, and at least two (2) published writing samples so we can get an idea of who you are as a writer. After that we’ll take it from there.
