Or are you a video creator?[/x_feature_box][cs_element_accordion _id=”30″ ][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”31″ ][cs_content_seo]Why would I want to write for DIYist.com\n\n

We have found that writing for a publication that specializes in your field of expertise increases your chances of finding better employment. It looks super amazing on any CV. Don’t underestimate the power of being an expert in your field!!
Sharing your knowledge is a great way to compound your learning – you retain information a lot better when you actually write it down. It is also an extremely satisfying way to help others.
You take photo’s of your work anyway – may as well use them & show them off to a wider public.
Learning to write for DIYist can potentially lead to paid opportunities either with DIYist or other websites.

\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”32″ ][cs_content_seo]Will I get paid for my writing?\n\nWe are not a profitable website (yet) so unfortunately we do not pay for your article or video submissions. We would obviously love to pay each and every writer a huge amount for their articles but at present- this is not practical or possible.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”33″ ][cs_content_seo]Can I link to my website from the articles?\n\nWe allow you to link to your company website (as long as it is in a related field) from your bio on this page – though this will not be site-wide and will only remain in place if you submit at least one article a month.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”34″ ][cs_content_seo]What would be expected of me as a writer?\n\nWe are only looking for people that can contribute at least once a month. We fully understand that all our writers work full time in the industry so we don’t ask for more than you can handle – each article will be a minimum of 1,500 words.
We don’t expect you to be an experienced writer or the next Shakespear – we will guide you along the way, and your audience will want to hear what you have got to say – trust us!
Additionally, you will have to try to adhere to our content guides and policies – all articles will be reviewed before publication.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”35″ ][cs_content_seo]I’m not a professional – can I still write for DIYist?\n\nWe like to try to accommodate anyone that feels they want to write for us – though we prefer you are a professional tradesperson- we are happy to accept content from anyone passionate about DIY.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”36″ ][cs_content_seo]Will I get my photo and name on this page?\n\nAs long as you supply us with a photo and you submit at least one piece of content a month – you bet you do!\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_accordion][cs_element_text _id=”37″ ][cs_content_seo]If you have read the above information and want to write for us please contact us at admin@diyist.com\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_layout_column][/cs_element_layout_row][/cs_element_section][/cs_content]
