Work With Us as a Freelance Content Writer

Looking for full or part time online content writing jobs? We’re always on the lookout for writers here in NZ and across the ditch. If you can produce high-quality content for our growing customer base, we’d love for you to apply!

What to expect

All content writing work provided by Digital Estate is contracted out to our growing team of content writers. As a content writer for Digital Estate, you’ll get to work the hours you want and be paid based on the number of words you write. 

We work on a first come first serve basis where you’ll get notified when new tasks are available and you’ll have the choice to take them or leave them.

Perfect for those that want to earn a living online, working from home around your own schedule. How good is that!

There are some caveats, so before applying make sure to understand everything below for a brief overview.

How our content writing jobs work

Content orders come in as they are required from our internal team, or through our online store. When a new order comes in, it’s listed in our project management software. If you are accepted into the writing team, you’ll get access to this project management system and an alert via email every time new content is added to the system.

Each task will be presented with all the details required to effectively research and write the content. If you get stuck or have any questions, you will also have access to our content management team who will be able to help guide you.

The content management system works as follows.

  1. When you accept a task, the timer starts. As we are running a business with real customers expecting real results, we require a reasonable turnaround time. By accepting a task, you’re agreeing to start working on that task right away. You have the time, you are ready, and you plan to have that completed within the specified time frame. 
  2. Payment for your writing is only made for a successful task. This means you completed the task within the time indicated to you when the task was first presented. You will be able to choose if you have the time or not, but if you accept the task, it’s expected you can complete it within the indicated time.
  3. If a task is not completed within the time indicated before you accepted, another task will be created for another member to complete. If another member accepts that task before you finish and submit yours, there will be no payment for the services as you didn’t complete the task within the terms and conditions of the agreement. So make sure you can complete a task in the timeframe required, before you accept it.
  4. Customers are always right! Each task is for someone who is paying for the service. That someone gets a say on the quality of the completed task. We offer 1 round of revisions for all content, so take this into consideration when applying for a task. Revisions will need to be completed within 24 hours. If you can’t complete the revision because life got in the way, a fee will be taken from your commission to cover someone else handling the changes for you.
  5. Quality is key. All content will need to be grammatically correct, have zero plagiarism, and pass all AI content detection.
  6. Payment is made once the customer accepts the content, after revisions.
  7. If your quality is not upto standard, we can close your account at any time.
