90 Percent of AskMen.com is Freelance-Written

AskMen.com, which focuses on giving guys actionable advice on career, health, dating and more, is in the market for freelancers with expertise. So, if you can show off personal finance savvy or dieting know-how to the editors, you could be landing assignments in no time.

“Our typical user is a guy in his late 20s, who is well out of college and may be getting his footing in his career, but is very much in an evolution phase in his life,” said editor-in-chief James Bassil. “He’s open to improvement, honest with himself about what he wants to do and is open to change. In presenting content, we want to egg readers on and motivate them to get through those changes, but also give them the tools to do so by providing a tangible, concrete thing that he needs to do right there. Takeaway value is huge. We want to give readers something they can put into use right away.”
