Get paid to write two short stories a month about our community, real estate projects, home improvement trends, home prices, and more.
Are you a video or multimedia journalist?
Do you love citizen journalism?
Is real estate your “beat”?
I’d like to hire you!
I’m the marketing manager for The Tulip Team and affiliated media channels, a local real estate team in Ottawa.
The local homeowners, buyers, sellers, and residents in our circles want to stay updated on what’s going on with local real estate.
I’m looking for a correspondent/reporter to write 2-4 stories a month on just about anything you feel residents would find interesting about real estate in Ottawa.
You get to decide on the story. It can be a feature, current event or human interest story. Ideas include town tours, business interviews, real estate developments, home improvement, market trends, and more.
You’ll produce the full package with voiceover, sound, and B-roll. You don’t need to be in the video – we will do the lead-in and provide you team experts to comment on real estate trends. Total run time 1-2 min.
We’ll work on the production elements together to create a fun brand.
You’ll be paid per story – 50% upfront and 50% when published.
As an added bonus, you’ll get 50% of any advertising revenue we earn. Mortgage professionals, title companies, home inspectors, contractors, and more would want to be in front of our audience. You have my deep commitment to promote every story fully using email and social media for ratings to sell advertising spots.
If you’re interested in working together, call Dave Williams at 613-788-2594 or email HTOop@HallmarkOttawa.com . Tell me what you’re looking for in a managing editor. I’m excited to see your work, or if you don’t have any yet, your vision. I’ll pay you to do a story, and if it’s great, I’ll commit to you to two stories a month going forward.
