Writing jobs for emigrants
All you need is a computer with internet access, a bit of experience, a flair for writing and a knack for research. Then, nothing can stop you having a late career as a travel writer. Once you've successfully applied with a short sample text, you'll have access to a list of writing assignments about various international destinations. Choose the destinations that you know or find interesting. If you can find all the necessary information by researching the destination, you don’t even have to have been there. The brief will tell you how long the text must be, who the text must speak to, and which keywords to use.
The fee for each text assignment is fixed. On top of that, there are several bonuses to earn if you are particularly good or productive. (Our frequent writer bonus begins at 10 written texts per month) You can work on our assignment with no pressure. It works just as well from the terrace of your Finca as from your rented house in Bali. You decide if you want to work at dawn, during the day or after the sun sets in the ocean. And you can write as many or few articles as you wish. With us you have no obligations.
As soon as your text is finished, you submit it to our Berlin editorial team. If there are no corrections to be made, you will be informed and the fee will be credited to your author account. If the text does need improvement, the editor will explain why, and you will have the chance to make these. Once you have earned more than 25€ at the end of a month, we will make a SEPA or PayPal transfer. The best part: If you reside in a country with a relatively low cost of living, you benefit from so-called geo-arbitrage. You earn Euros but pay in Mexican Pesos, Thai Baht or Indonesian Rupiah, thus getting more value for your money.
Our editors in Berlin are well educated and experienced. With a linguistic feel and a respectful tone, they give you constructive feedback to help you understand the ins and outs of online content in the tourist industry. Laws about working while retired differ from country to country, so it is recommended that you inform yourself about the laws in the state where you collect your pension.
