Geek Computer is a place where great brands get to meet great writers. To get to know us better, we would like to peel back some of our layers and help you understand a bit of our content creation process.
Step 1: Applying with Us
Geek Computer typically advertises its open positions on Craigslist. Making an application with us is quite easy. First, writers will be redirected to our Facebook page for direct contact. We will then ask the candidate to write a sample topic to test their eligibility based on a simple topic. Once the article is reviewed and passed evaluation, the candidate signs a writer's agreement, is added to a private Facebook chat group and given a site login, and is finally introduced to the rest of the team.
Unsuccessful applicants are advised to try again after a few months. Geek Computer uses Facebook to create familiarity and to know exactly who we are hiring. Moreover, we aim to work as a team. Having a commonly accessible platform to communicate is very vital in building a strong team.
Step 2: Using The Facebook Group Chat
We use our group chat to share instant messages with the team and a dynamic platform for information exchange. With the help of this information avenue, Geek Computer can structure fast-paced and team-based conversations, unlike traditional forms of communication. Moreover, our group chat creates an advantage in the following ways:
Step 3. Using the Content Management System
Each one of our writers has access to our CMS. The CMS is a space every writer has to familiarize with. Writers use this platform to create their writing profiles, including their payment details. The CMS is also where writers choose articles to write, submit them, and edit them for publishing. We guide and encourage our writers on how to add more writing topics from Google to the website.
Step 4. Writing and Reviews
Once successful candidates have been inducted into our Company, they are free to select an article to research and write on from our CMS. Geek Computer requires that every candidate write a minimum of 3 articles in a month under the special writing guidelines that we provide. These guidelines have been put to ensure that the authenticity and trustworthiness of the Company are maintained. Our interest is to give you the best.
Complete articles have to go through multiple stages of review before finally being accepted for publishing. Content that is original, well researched, relatable, and plagiarism-free is forwarded for publishing. The writer can then request another writing topic. Content that lacks some of the aforementioned elements will be returned for editing. If a document is returned for editing more than 3 times, it will affect the candidate's compensation.
Step 5: Publishing
We only pay writers for articles that are published. We also have the executive authority to determine whether any writer-submitted article should be published. Our Company also pays its writers per any multimedia published with their article. These images can also be adjusted by us based on how we see fit. All of this is stipulated in the contract agreement.
We own multiple websites, and our content is directed to one of them based on the topic and what we see fit for the brand. By agreeing to our Contract, writers give us the right to publish and reproduce the article however we see fit.
