Freelance Crypto SEO Writer

Contract/Freelance Freelance/Contract, United States


You TLT? We sure do. 

The Motley Fool’s Evergreen SEO team is looking for a talented Freelance Crypto SEO Writer to contribute their writing talent and subject matter expertise to our community of Foolish investors. Though this is a 100% remote contract opportunity with flexible hours, candidates must reside in the United States to be considered. 

Who are we, anyway?

For the past 29 years, The Motley Fool has cut through the noise and jargon to help people understand stock market investing and the financial world in general. We want to stay true to that mission in the burgeoning—and often esoteric—realm of crypto. 

Above all, we aim to educate our readers by meeting them where they are. Our audience ranges from the active crypto investor who starts every day with a “gm,” all the way to our beginner-level reader who has been told that non-fungible means “cannot be turned into a mushroom.” 

About this position:

This is a contract position in which we pay between $150-$350 per published article, depending upon word count. (Word counts range from 500–1,500+.) We also hold quarterly writer awards, where prize money for the best articles ranges from $500-$1,000. Lambo soon.

This team creates content that supports our ultimate goal of turning readers into members of our premium services. Our SEO writers take direction from the SEO team, with topics and rough outlines provided. (Though we love to get ideas from our writers and hear our writers’ opinions; we are, after all, hiring you because you are a crypto expert.)

Writers receive assignments for original articles as well as updates to existing content for freshness, accuracy, and SEO.

We’re looking for at least one article per week from you to start—and potentially more, if both of us (you and the Fool) agree that we are a good fit for one another. 

About you:

  • You maintain a firm grasp of the current state and future potential of cryptocurrency, its applications, and the underlying technology.
  • You worship the written word and can write clear, fluid, and engaging prose.
  • You have experience writing about cryptocurrency, with previous publishing credits. (We’ll want to see your three favorites in your application!)
  • You share our passion for teaching the world about the less-understood digital asset market.
  • You have opinions on how crypto could be used in web3, or whether Bitcoin could become a global fiat currency (ya never know!).
  • You could effectively explain asset-backed tokens to a 12-year-old. 
  • You have a wealth of knowledge about the investing world—and you believe in the Foolish investing philosophy. (That is, you invest in great companies for the long run. Diamond hands, essentially.)
  • You have some SEO know-how (we can offer some training in this).
