Harlow McGaw Media is owned by Michelle Harlow and Danielle McGaw. These ladies have been writing on the internet for decades between the two of them. They know the pain of writers being mistreated on content sites. They know what it is like to have their suggestions ignored and their work unceremoniously deleted. They have “been there and done that” as the saying goes. Can you think of anyone better to run a content site?
Because they know the heartache that writers go through, their sites are run in a manner that any author would appreciate. They have covered the items that most writers worry about when writing on any content site. Things like: listening to suggestions, being consulted on changes, getting honest explanations whenever changes are made, being able to contact a person fairly quickly for an answer when you have a problem, and most importantly a system that checks the posts for quality, so that every site is maintained and is NEVER filled with junk posts. HMM sites are tailor made in a way that will promote its posts getting indexed by Google and other search engines, so you will get more organic views. Isn’t that what we are all after?
Harlow McGaw Media has many different kinds of writing sites. Which site a person writes on depends on what they are writing. I am approached a lot regarding what the difference is between the sites, and how they pay, and if they let you use affiliate links and so on. This is why I decided to write this article. It spells out some of the main differences between the sites and what each site specializes in.
These Items Apply to All Sites:
In order to qualify to write on any of these sites you must submit three pieces of writing to [email protected] with the site name you are applying to write for in the Subject line. Daily Two Cents, Writedge, and The Daily Voice will be set up with application forms where you can include this information.
All posts must have a featured image, and that image must be attributed and useable in a commercial setting.
Payment is made via PayPal, with a threshold of $5 or by wire with a threshold of $100. You are paid net 30, meaning for money earned in September, you will be paid for on November 2nd. Payment is issued in the first week of the month and if there is any problem, you can contact one of the owners, who usually get back to you the same day.
All sites share in the HMM Pinterest and Twitter accounts and articles are promoted there. Harlow McGaw Media has two teams that help keep the sites focused on quality and help promote articles. The Excellence Assurance Team edits posts and helps writers with input on their writing. If writers get input from a member of the team that they don’t understand, they can contact Danielle or Michelle via email for clarification. The Harlow-McGaw Champions help keep the Twitter feed full so that there is constantly content being shared and they add content to the Facebook Pages on a regular basis.
