If you have a sports website and you are trying to make money off of it you know that the best way to get your page views up, which will increase the ad rate, is by getting content on your site. That means you need at least one post each day but having more than one post is a good thing too. The more posts you have the better your chances are of getting yourself some more ad revenue. So the question becomes: how do you hire writers to write for you even if they aren’t getting paid? Asking someone to do something for free is not an easy thing to do but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it. Here are some helpful tips.
Go on to a place like Craigslist and post a job there. This is a great place for younger writers just looking for some exposure or just to feel like their talent for writing matters. You can offer them exposure which should be attractive. Currently, if they aren’t writing for anyone, they should jump at the chance to have their writing read by 2000 readers a week.
Go onto forums in other sports websites. The big names in the sports world industry are not strolling their own forums looking for writers so this is a perfect opportunity to get your name and the name of your website out there. If people like it then they can be a part of it. Even if they don’t write they can still come to your page and become a fan of it.
Talk to other local websites that you like who may cover a sport you don’t cover. See if they are interested in trading writers for a day, just something to cross promote. It’s important to get writing help and you can find it for free if you try.
