Contributors do guest blogging on an article that will be published under their name, and we’re looking for possible techie or tech-lifestyle bloggers, gamers who are fond of reviewing games for our game review section, and so much more.
However, this doesn’t mean that they will be a part of SnowTechStuff’s editorial team unless permanently hired. Their articles will be reviewed and approved before getting live on the website for possible grammatical as well as ethical errors.
You can submit your works through the ‘Content Submission’ page we’ve provided – simply create an account, and post your article there – we’ll moderate it, and approve once cleared of anything.
We are also open to suggestions in terms of editorial features and article/content types, as long as it adheres to our policies and vision.
Our vision is to became one of the Philippines’ (and maybe the world’s) source of information about technology. We strive to be recognized by readers and brands as well as to became a household name for tech stuff, and to get a glimpse of everything about tech.
Please note that features and articles are NOT limited to Philippines. You can feature any tech-related stuff from anywhere around the world. You’ll also get a profile with your picture and bio / information so that everyone will see that you wrote the article and will help build your own personal portfolio, and a means to brag about into your social media profiles, as an aspiring writer and contributor to our growing network.
However, since this is just a starting blog (earlier 2015) – we can’t afford to pay every single person as of this moment. So, in order to compensate for your hard work, your articles will get featured more than anything else by default.
And if you helped us, or the blog grow, adding your skills and dedication, you might be hired permanently and be part of the team.
This literally means that we’re scouting for potential employees and team members who’ll manage to publish articles, videos on SnowTechStuff.com and in our social media channels in the near future.
See FAQ Section for more.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: Is this a paid work? How much will I be paid for?
A: Like what we have said above, this blog is actually starting up and we can’t afford to pay every single contributor out there. However, the best perks that we can give you is features and awards, if, your work deserves it. For now, only the ones who are part of the actual team are getting paid.
Q: How long do I need to work for a day?
A: It’s up to you, since we are just evaluating, we’re not giving any time frame or work restrictions. You’ll be not required to go to an office either. You can give us a single article every day, 3 articles a week, or whatever you like. For video and graphic designers, we will get in touch with you in case there’s something we need to work on. And for our social media managers, we’ll give you the access to our social accounts as a moderator/editor (Facebook only) – since our Twitter doesn’t have that multi-user option, yet.
Q: Do you have an office or headquarters to work with?
A: No, for now, we’re doing all the work on our own houses, that’s why you will also do.
Q: Do I get free items for review?
A: As for our guest contributors and interns, not for now. We can’t afford to request brands right now to send free samples to our guest people. It means, that we only want you to review or write about what do you have right now, as because you are going to use that item, and you know it best because you have it.
Q: What will happen if you don’t hire me?
A: Don’t be discouraged. Though we don’t specify the period of evaluation for a single contributor, we’ll know you if you can make the cut or not. And we’re sure to remain you as a list of our contributors, who helped us in this challenge, of achieving our amazing vision. Your articles will remain, and your name will be retained.
Q: What about if I get hired?
A: Congratulations! You will became part of the team, and if it happen that we achieved our goal for this year, you’ll get some freebies, and of course, you’ll work as either a freelance or a full-time team member, being paid when there’s a project, or every month. You should help us out to make a name among our potential readers, and brands as well. You might accompany us on our whereabouts as well as early access to some tech stuff.
I don’t get paid whatsoever? Why should I work or do this?
- We believe that experience and passion is the best teacher. As long as you love what you do, you’ll learn every single work you will do with us, and we believe that you will be rewarded if we have your work uploaded on our site and social media channels, and with the help of yours, grab attention and engagements, in which, can make yourself proud of. What we need is a passionate individual who can work with us and push through our limits to expand, and if we can see it through you, we will just let you know and you might get hired permanently.
- You’ll get your columns and articles here, which you can use for future references. Growing up your portfolio is a hard challenge for the most of us, but something like this which you can put on your resume is something that you can brag about. Even if we didn’t hire you, we’ll be proud to tell something great about you in case you list us as one of your references.
- Lastly, this is all about your passion, experience and the love of tech, writing / content creating.
