Freelance Lifestyle Review Writer

Editorial/Content N/A, United States


About Your Role:

Are you a writer that loves researching your favorite products to compare their features, prices, and design elements? If you enjoy unboxing a new purchase, setting it up, and taking it for a test drive, then we’d love to talk to you. We’re looking for strong writers that are experts in any of the following content categories: home, decor, travel, parenting, and health.

As a Lifestyle Review Writer, you will be analyzing products — from cotton sheets to cookware sets — to help readers weigh the pros and cons, get in-depth knowledge about the product or its category, and gain a clear understanding of your hands-on experience. You will use your writing skills and photography abilities to create a compelling review. We would like candidates to commit to at least three reviews per month at a minimum.


About Your Contributions:

  • Writing insightful and engaging 1000- to 2000-word review articles to help consumers make thoughtful buying decisions
  • Setting up and testing multiple products at a time
  • Taking high-quality, well-lit photos of the products in use
  • Turning in copy and photos on time


About You:

  • Experience writing about the lifestyle categories mentioned above, with preference going to writers who have specifically written about products
  • Adept at writing conversational and clean copy
  • Experience writing for the Web
  • Strong research skills
  • Ability to juggle multiple projects and meeting staggered deadlines
  • Experience taking sharp, clear photos (with access to a DSLR being a must)
  • Willingness to follow detailed guidelines, accept edits, and reshoot images

Your reviews will be published on The Spruce, Verywell, or Tripsavvy, depending on your areas of expertise. We are looking for reviewers who are able to take on 3-4 products at a time, with word counts ranging from 1,000-2,000 words per review. We offer very competitive rates per article.
