JOB OVERVIEW

You will be primarily writing and re-writing short product descriptions to be used in news articles about the best deals on different products. I will provide a list of keywords (e.g. iPad, laptops, GoPro cameras) and ask you to write short phrases about them. These phrases will be published in top US news sites such as Business Insider and Yahoo News.

The main skills required are:

1. Fluent English writing skills and the ability to write quickly, coherently and in a professional tone
2. Ability to work with Google Docs, Google Sheets to complete tasks
3. Able to commit at least 20 hours per week over the next 5 weeks (work lasts until December 3)

Some knowledge of consumer products and tech would be useful as most of the products you'll write about are electronics, home & kitchen products. Knowledge of WordPress (creating/editing posts) may also be handy but is not essential.

If you're interested in applying for this role please complete the following task:

Read the following 3 sentences which are being used to advertise Black Friday deals available on Apple iPad tablets.

1. Save up to XX% on Apple iPad Pro (12.9-inch, 11-inch & 10.5-inch) tablets on sale at Amazon’s Black Friday sale - including price drops on the latest 2019 models

2. Save up to XX% on Apple iPad Mini & iPad Mini 4 tablets at the Amazon Black Friday sale - featuring instant savings on top-rated 2019 models with Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular

3. Save up to XX% on Apple iPad Air tablets at Amazon’s Black Friday sale - save on the latest Space Gray, Silver & Gold iPad Air tablets

The primary keyword here is iPad and the secondary keywords are: iPad Mini, iPad Pro, iPad Air, 12.9 inch, 11 inch, 10.5 inch, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi+Cellular, Space Gray, Silver, Gold.

As you can see each of the 3 sentences focuses on a different iPad model (Pro, Mini, Air) and each uses some of the other secondary keywords at the end of the sentence.

Please copy this style to write 3 sentences for the primary keyword Fitbit and secondary keywords: Charge 3, Versa 2, Alta HR, activity tracker, heart rate monitor, smartwatch, rose gold, fitness, band.

You must keep the same style of: Save up to XX% on PRODUCTS at Amazon's Black Friday sale - including savings on MOREKEYWORDS

You might need to research a bit about what each different Fitbit model can do in order to write the sentences. The task is fairly simple but the most important thing is an attention to detail and an ability to write informatively and professionally. Please do not attempt to be too creative - I'm not looking for you to change the style but instead to follow the instructions precisely please.

THE ABOVE TASK IS TO BE COMPLETED BY ALL APPLICANTS.
