Hi, guys. I know I haven't been around here much lately, but I thought of y'all when a client came up with a need for a good contractor. So here goes. If you're interested or have questions, please PM me. I'll be checking in once or twice a day for the next week or so.

FREELANCER WANTED

Chief skills required: Good writing; some knowledge of graphics (at least enough to work with a designer; a plus if you can do some minor layout of your own); ability to give wise counsel on matters related to advertising, fundraising, public relations, marketing, etc.

Knowledge and experience in freedom issues, particularly Second Amendment issues, is helpful. Must play reasonably well with others.

This is paying work and could turn into something nicely long-term for the right person.

PM me with qualifications or questions! Thanks.

Claire Wolfe

Hi Claire!  :hello:

That sounds marvelous, Claire. All of my graphics and "lay out" skills are tied to experience in journalism when I was in college... in the dark ages. All on paper with typewriters, scissors and glue type stuff.   I have a sneaking hunch they need computer skills for today. LOL

Good luck! If they'd like to consult with someone who deals with NAP and self defense issues for the non ninja set, especially women and handicapped, I'd love to hear from them. I work cheap... like... I'd be happy to contribute gratis.

Hi, Moonbeam! Nice to "see" you again.

MamaLiberty, I'll drop you an email. I don't think you're the person for this job (and if you were, there's no way you should work gratis -- though thank you for that). But there may be some related projects for you.

DiabloLoco ... hm. Didn't think about Bill. He definitely has some good 2A qualifications and he can write. But the job really needs a background in advertisting or some related field & come to think of it I simply don't know what Bill's background is.

Good start on some thinking. Thank you, guys.

Great! I'm all ears (or eyes, as the case may be!). Would love to help out any way possible. At least I can write stuff. :)

Nope. I'm good at geeky stuff related to web site creation, but suck at visual design and suck harder at any kind of PR, advertising, or sales.

Plenty of knowledge of freedom issues and 2A. Play reasonably with others until they start to act stupid.

LOL, do I ever hear ya on playing well until somebody acts stupid. Thanks for the response, Bill. I agree you don't have the right skillset for this gig, but I'll go on admiring you, anyhow.  :mellow:

I was trying to keep my initial post useful but brief. But I now see I left out a couple of important details. So to add:

Writing in an important part of the gig, but the majority of the writing is print ads, direct mail solicitations, business communications, and similar things. Knowledge and experience with freedomista issues is needed, but the majority of the writing is business-related, not op-ed.

Experience in advertising or related fields is crucial. The client needs somebody who can not just execute projects, but give reliable advice on how to appeal to an audience, create effective offers, make best use of a limited ad budget, etc.

Thanks again,
Claire

Hi Claire,

It is good to hear from you.
Now ...
I can type [as long as I don't injure either one of my fingers - hunt and peck is typing isn't it?]
I can lift heavy objects [usually 12 or more ounces]
I can start firewood stoves and maintain them [yep but you knew that already right?]
I ...

I can go sit in the corner and be quiet now ....

stay safe my friend
