What are we looking for in our applicants?
Why? – Because it's an indicator of how likely it is that you could possibly become a paying customer in the future. We are a business after all.
Why? – Not all industries we want to be involved in and some industries we get too many applicants in, so that can be a primary reason why an application is rejected.
Why? – We're a free service, so we need to keep expectations fairly loose. We do not accept direct orders for content and if your writing guidelines are too specific, we may ask you to revise them.
Why? – Because it is an indicator of the probability of whether you'll become a paying customer of ours or not. We don't require applicants to be paying customers, but we also don't want to write free content for those who would never consider it, either.
Why? – We need to give priority to the members who are benefiting from us the most. If your application isn't taken seriously by you, why would it be by us?
