The effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic on employment rates has been twofold: on the one hand, we have seen a devastating loss of jobs as well as skyrocketing unemployment rates. On the other, a changing office model and a shift to remote work has seen a rising number of people worldwide embrace freelance and online employment.
With a rise of freelancers vying for the same gig, however, it is becoming increasingly difficult for newcomers to this online ecosystem to find stable, paid work. Which is where we come in.
At our website, we recognize this market saturation and seek to capitalize on its current trends. While we have made no effort to conceal that we are a content writing farm ourselves, we offer an alternative to regular content writing farms by adding our unique twist to the stale business model.
We choose ‘for exposure’ as our sole compensation method.
Much like the office model has seen a decay in popularity in traditional workplaces, so do we find that the established models of content writing compensation have become stale and cumbersome for the employer.
For one, with a finite amount of money to go around, a content writing farm is required to wade through written submissions, read them, evaluate their quality, and choose the best of the bunch. And we don’t want that, do we? In these trying times, we would like to offer absolutely everyone a platform, at no cost to us, and with all the benefits coming our way. In so doing, we also ensure that the onus of quality control does not fall to us and we can publish anything from poorly-translated articles clearly written in a foreign language to poorly-written articles clearly assembled by an AI bot. You will find the bar of entry to be so low that it would not be altogether unwarranted to ask for monetary compensation ourselves, for offering so welcoming of a platform.
For another, perhaps equally as important of a point, we pride ourselves on our exploitation legitimacy and our dedication to our grift. Like many a questionable practice that has come before, it is through this grift that we honor our ‘for exposure’ predecessors and pave way for still murkier capitalist exploits to come.
Furthermore, our contribution to the field of science and statistics has been of paramount value. With our subliminal suggestion that the Exposure Compensation Model (ECM) is worth more than the Monetary Compensation Model (MCM), we seek to break new scientific ground by quantifying said (hitherto unquantifiable) exposure. We remain convinced that further research on the topic will prove that the ECM model provides such value that it is monetarily more advantageous than mere societal constructs such as money (MCM), as supported by the traditional business practices. Any and all statisticians willing to work on this are encouraged to reach out to further this hypothesis and make it into a statistical certainty. Our website is a fantastic platform which will garner them a devoted following and name recognition in the field of their choosing. For a great jumping-off point and an amazing resource for citation, we encourage everyone to refer to recent social media trends such as ‘$500,000 versus a dinner with Logan Paul’ which have lain the groundwork for this hypothesis.
While we cannot in good conscience stand behind such unsavory principles as paid promotion (wherein we pay you to promote us on the internet), it cannot be disputed that promotion ‘for exposure’ (wherein we promote you to promote us on the internet) is the strongest and most rapidly-growing online currency, and certainly one with the most skewed cost-to-benefit ratio (wherein it costs us nothing and benefits us in full). We can see no downsides to such practices and remain devoted to the beneficence and inherent charity of the ‘for exposure’ business model. With the still-rapid rise of unemployment and the inevitable cultural shift towards remote work opportunities, it is the hope of every exploitative platform that the competitive freelance environment results in a resigned acceptance of ‘for exposure’ and its resulting benefits to us.
