Canadian multinational Suite101 Media Inc. announced the launch of Suite101.net, the Spanish version of its internationally renowned Suite101.com portal, an online site featuring more than 2,500 freelance contributors.
The project's editorial model is a first for Spanish language markets and is based on quality of content and a shared revenue model that allows writers to earn money for their contributions. All content is reviewed prior to its publication by an editorial team composed of professional journalists specialized in each subject area, from culture or sports to new technologies or health.
The site is open to writers from all over the world: experts on a specific subject or professional area, journalists, non-fiction writers, bloggers, journalism students, writing enthusiasts or hobbyists who have something to share. All may publish their articles under one condition- the quality of content which is subject to screening and review by a team of editors in Spain, the U.S. and Latin America.
Once a writer's work has been accepted for publication, Suite101.net's freelancers may share earnings indefinitely, even if they stop contributing new articles to the project. In exchange, writers commit to contributing a minimum of ten articles every three months in order to generate a reasonable volume of content to begin to see results. The amount paid will vary and depends on the quality and search engine optimization level (SEO) of the articles.
Suite101.net targets the Spanish-speaking community worldwide and is based in Madrid, with correspondents in Buenos Aires, Caracas, Mexico and Miami.
"The Suite101.net’s launch represents a decisive step forward in the company's expansion, because it aims to reach the world's entire Spanish-speaking community of 420 million people," says Peter Berger, president and CEO of Suite101.
