What Content Remix Is

Content Remix is a service that takes podcast episodes and turns them into narrative-style articles. This isn’t a transcription service where we go in and recap a conversation word-for-word. Instead, we focus on recapping the major themes, stories, and highlights covered and building that into a thoughtful, shareable blog post.

Podcasters know that repackaging content is a great way to get extra mileage out of their material...and that’s what we help them do. By taking their audio and turning it into easy-to-read written content, we give them another format in which they can share their episodes with audience members. 

What you’ll do

As a writer for Content Remix, you’ll listen to the podcast episode, take notes, and then build out a blog post that touches on the main themes and recaps the topics covered. 

For these assignments, there’s no back-and-forth editing required (we take care of that.) We may provide notes to consider moving forward or based on client feedback, but these are purely to note for future assignments.

There’s zero client interaction and no research required--just a steady flow of projects. This work is ideal if you've got some free time in your work week and are looking to fill it with small, simple projects. Plus: You’re getting paid to listen to (and learn from) various podcasts!

Posts will either be:

  • $75/per: 750-1000 words long each (if podcast is 45 minutes or less) or 
  • $100/per: 1250-1500 words long each (if podcast is 45-90 minutes.)

Payment:

  • For first-time test assignments: Payouts are sent upon review and approval of the test assignment and is based on the length of the podcast.
  • For writers who are approved for ongoing work: Payouts are sent at the end of every month based on total work completed. Writers will send an invoice on the last day of the month for all assignments, which will be processed and paid within 7-14 days.

What we’re looking for in writing partners

Key qualities: We’re looking for writers who pay attention to detail, can follow directions within a writing brief, and know how to translate an audio format into an easy-to-read, story-driven blog post. 

Availability: We want to build long-term partnerships with our freelance writers so they have a steady stream of work month after month. If the work is a good fit for both parties, this isn’t a one-off engagement, but rather a weekly collaboration with recurring assignments.

Reliability: Our business model is to turn projects around in 3-5 business days. Please note that this is a requirement of signing on; if this isn’t possible for you, this engagement isn’t a good fit. We have a zero tolerance policy for missed deadlines.

What Content Remix podcast summaries look like 

  • Story-driven: These aren’t mere show notes. Our blog posts are story-driven summaries that pull out the most interesting themes and lessons from a podcast episode and share them in a narrative format.
  • Audience-focused: Written with the podcast’s niche audience top-of-mind.
  • Easy to consume: No big blocks of text or long-winded paragraphs. Content is formatted so it’s easy to read, making smart use of short paragraphs, bullet points, and scannable text that’s optimized for standard online reading habits across digital devices. 
  • Search engine optimized: Optimized with headings written for SEO based on the key questions covered in the episode, as well as for the subject matter and host/guest’s name.
  • Shareable: Every post includes two or three pull quotes that spotlight important insights. These are great for sharing as tweets and can be easily leveraged for social posts across channels.
  • Ghostwritten: All work is done in a ghostwritten capacity, so you’ll be writing in either first or third person (not as yourself.)
