Coming Soon: New Editors … Interested in Joining Us?
As we look forward to 2011, one piece of our plan includes expanding our Sphinn Editorial staff. Starting in January, we’ll be looking to add new editors, but you can speak up now if you’re interested in being part of the team!
To do so, please use the contact Sphinn form (choose “Something Else!” from the dropdown menu). Be sure to tell us your name and as much as possible about you and your experience in the online marketing industry.
As I mentioned, we’ll put out another call in January for people who may need a little time to think about it. But if you don’t need the extra time, by all means let us know now. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
What Do Sphinn Editors Do?
The primary job of our editors is to find great content about Internet marketing and submit it for possible publishing on our home page. Related to that is helping decide what gets published to the home page when other editors find great content. So, if you do a lot of reading of industry web sites and blogs, and enjoy keeping up on the latest news and how-to articles, this should be right up your alley.
Editors are also responsible for helping to monitor the news tips that our users submit and deciding which of those should be published on our home page, as well as keeping an eye on comments, first-time user news tips, etc. — mainly to make sure the site is being used as it should, that there’s no spam, and so forth.
It’s a not a huge time commitment, but it is work and we ask our editors to take the role seriously. It’s also a lot of fun, so if that sounds cool to you, let us know.
