Writing for Handshake 2.0

I've tried lots of different ways to engage freelance writers' services and the only one that's proven lasting is this one:  If the writer wants to get on Handshake 2.0 enough, he or she will figure out how to get it done.  

When I receive email requests from writers saying they want to write for Handshake 2.0, I respond with a "Thanks" and a link to the Jobs page.

When we were a new start-up without clients, I had time to reply to applicants, to coach them, and to send follow-up explanatory emails and links.  Now that we're an established start-up with treasured clients, I've created an online guide to writing for Handshake 2.0 because I don't have time to help any more.  I need independent contractors, with the emphasis on "independent."

The Jobs page and the Content Creators page probably link to a dozen other pages, each with text, links, some with diagrams and slide shows.  I can imagine reading and studying all those pages might take an hour.

Why is applying to write for Handshake 2.0 so hard?  Because writing for Handshake 2.0 is hard.  Writing a blog post takes art, craft, thought, personal reflection, insight, and research. 

And the starting pay per post for writing for Handshake 2.0 is $20.

Applying to create images as a freelance artist for Handshake 2.0 is no walk in the park, either.

To the emails to which I reply with a Jobs page link, I rarely hear back.

When I do hear back – because the person has read all the links and followed all the directions – it's almost always from someone to whom I reply, "I want to buy that for Handshake 2.0."
