- Before beginning any job within Scripted, thoroughly review the job guidelines and make sure you understand all components of the job! If you have guideline-related questions, please email us at email@example.com.
- Blog Posts: For blog posts (standard and long), include strong intros and conclusions, link to your sources, and use subheaders to divide the copy.
- Product Descriptions: When writing product descriptions, provide more than just specs, avoid florid language and filler, and describe unique applications of the product.
- White Papers: To write stellar white papers, work from an outline, introduce your focus early, include quotations from experts, and cite your sources.
- Tweets: Tweets are a difficult format to master. For best results, use appropriate hashtags (and use hashtags appropriate), include correct @mentions, and double-check your character counts before submitting.
- Facebook Posts: To write top-notch Facebook posts, link to timely stories, include a clear call to action, and don't forget to quote experts.
