Why should I contribute to WhenInManila.com? What’s in it for me?
There are various reasons that our current roster contributes to WhenInManila.com
i. Love of writing
Some of our contributors just love writing and are looking for an outlet to share their stories.
ii. Big audience
Imagine spending hours writing an article, only to find that just two people have ready it (you and your mom). Again, we get MILLIONS of readers per month, plus we also promote your article on our social media accounts which also have millions of followers, fans and readers.
iii. Lots of freebies
Our writers enjoy invites to the most expensive restaurants, where they get to bring their whole family or group of friends and treat them to a free meal, all in exchange for a review. Our other senior writers also get free phones, clothes, gadgets, bags, accessories, shoes, and more. All in exchange for a review of the brand / product.
iv. VIP events
Our writers get invites and VIP access to the biggest and most exclusive events. From front row access to concerts, sporting games, clubs, bars and other top events, our writers usually get the red carpet treatment. We get invites to grand openings of the most prestigious brands and restaurants, VIP tables to the biggest clubs, media passes to the hottest music concerts and invites to press conferences with the top stars.
v. Learn to write / blog / SEO and more
We train each of our writers in the most professional and up-to-date ways to increase readership to their own blogs. We train them to be pro-bloggers and how to write better. We also teach many Search Engine Optimization (SEO) tactics that will ensure more readers to their blogs.
Many of our writers have gone on to create successful blogs of their own or get great digital media jobs from top global agencies. Which brings me to my next point…
vi. Great professional experience for your resume
Our writers have gone on to get top positions at top global and local firms including McCann World Group, Summit Media, Rappler.com and more. The experience of writing for a top online magazine and digital brand is one that can translate to a better job for you with top companies.
