Writers are your heart and soul.

What’s the trick to assembling a talented, committed team of writers for your brand?

  • First: a searchable, global pool of top-notch talent.
  • Second: a team of content strategists who can help you piece together those contributors—the heart and soul of your content strategy—and get important industry influencers on board.
  • Third: a technology platform that streamlines management and payment processes.

Skyword360 connects you instantly to thousands of freelance storytellers who are passionate about both their subject matter and creating brand content. You risk neither the awkwardness of reaching out to reporters or other influencers, nor the frustration of managing untested freelancers.

Each of our writers has a profile and writing samples you can peruse to get a sense of style and voice. Once you determine that someone is a likely fit for your brand, you can reach out and start a conversation.

Credibility is as important as talent.

Your writer may have a way with words, but does she have credibility with your audience? We’ve partnered with Traackr to gain access to its database of influencers, and to capture the social footprint of every Skyword content creator. Find people with a reputation for making valuable contributions in the online communities where your audience congregates—who are socially engaged on the topics that matter to your bottom line.

You can spend considerable time and effort to build relationships with those influencers from the ground up—or you can use Skyword360 to identify professionals who are actively looking for opportunities like yours.

Make like a local, in every market.

Authentic content that moves audiences on an emotional level requires knowledge of the intricacies of culture, local networks, and the market itself. Skyword’s pool of top creatives from around the world can help you make headway quickly, avoid common mistakes, and tap into spheres of influence you may otherwise miss. Skyword360 makes it easy to compensate contributors in 22 local currencies — saving you time and resources, and boosting your street cred with local teams.

Video is complicated—get to the essence of your project.

One two- to three-minute video clip requires script writers, editors, set designers, actors, animators, sound technicians, and more. Getting all those people to work together efficiently and effectively can be challenging; unless you’re in the business of making movies, you might not even know how to put a team together.

Our services team can take you through a process of discovery that brings into focus the emotional links between your brand and your audience. Together, we assemble strategy, vision, and a creative brief designed to nurture and direct the content creation process.

From there, the technology and your team of creatives take over. The creative brief is always easy for them to find, clearly linked to the assignment in Skyword360. There, you can also reference similar models of the final product you envision, including what you like about it. Clarity was never so easy to come by.

Imagine a bidding process that works for you.

With Skyword360, you can create requests for proposals (RFPs) to solicit bids for projects from the content creators you select—or you can open it up to any qualified creative. Interested contributors can view your creative brief and project requirements, and send you proposals by your closing date, along with their estimated bids for the assignment.

All you have to do then is choose one, specify a payment rate, and offer the assignment to the creative of your choice.

If you like, you can sweeten the deal by offering bonuses based on content performance, or monthly bonuses for views received within a calendar month. With Skyword360, you can set payment rates per contributor and per assignment, and make additional, discretionary payments to any contributor.

Payment hurdles and tedium—eliminated.

Skyword360 can track earnings and automate payments for all the creatives in your content program. We handle all the details, from performance bonuses to tax forms, and pay contributors bi-monthly through PayPal.
