Harvard Students Meet Web Content Creation

Better Writers. Better Content. Better Prices.

Here at College Copywriters, we understand the difficulties of getting your hands on fresh web content for your blog or website. Finding the appropriate balance between price and quality has never before been so difficult in the content market. You need a content solution that you can trust, one that understands the ins and outs of your business that can boost your SEO. And while there are many web content production companies that can meet your standards—finding one at the right price is nearly impossible.

Harvard Students Meet Content Creation

That’s where we come in. We’re a team of expert Harvard student content writers—specifically trained in the art of web content creation. We’ve pooled together the world’s brightest students: scholars, researchers, future Pulitzer prize winners, all at the disposal of writing content for your business. Our average SAT score would probably hover around the perfect range. But our writers our much more than a handful of high-scoring test takers.

Commitment to Our Work

With College Copywriters, you can expect a certain level of excellence and commitment to our work. Our students understand the careful research and planning that must be done in order to prepare for your company’s web content and blogging needs. We may have a host of Computer Science, Economics, and Business majors, but that doesn’t mean our students won’t take the extra time to understand what makes your finance blog unique. No amount of organic chemistry classes can give our students enough insight into why your hair-care products are truly special. We need all the information we can get to help boost your SEO and create truly premium content. That’s where you come in.

Client Cooperation

Our success as writers is entirely dependent on your cooperation and assistance during the writing process. You need to help us understand your story. What do your customers want from you? How do they identity with your product? What is the defining style or tone of your company? Be as detailed as possible when describing what you need form us, and we promise you won’t be disappointed.

 

The years of over-price mediocre content are over. Don’t waste any more money on cheap content mills—order content from College Copywriters today and start driving traffic to your website or blog.

Big News (and a Bigger Thank You!)

We hope you all enjoyed the long weekend! For those of you eager to get back to work (and get paid), we have some exciting news to share — click here for the full press release.

As you’ve probably noticed, things have been a bit slow on the site lately—mostly a byproduct of the two of us graduating and joining the “real world.” Between finishing school and finding adult jobs, we’ve both had our hands full, but making sure our writers are busy and our clients happy has always been our top priority.

static1.squarespaceWith that goal in mind, we are excited to announce that College Copywriters has been acquired by Harvard Student Agencies (a.k.a. HSA), the world’s largest student-run business. Based out of Harvard University, HSA employs over 500 undergraduates to manage its 14 separate agencies, its mission being to provide students with rewarding employment opportunities and practical work experience (sound familiar?) College Copywriters will be joining HSA as its fifteenth and newest agency, and day-to-day management of the business will be passed on to the lovely Amy Zhao (more on her in a second!)

So why HSA, and—more importantly—what does it mean for the business? The great news is that, from the students’ perspective, only one thing is changing: There will be more writing assignments available, which means more cash to be earned. The trick, of course, is in making those sales. Fortunately, between student feedback and our clients’ satisfaction, we’ve always known we were on to something great here; unfortunately, as full-time students ourselves, we’ve never been able to allocate the time and resources that the business truly deserves.

That’s where HSA comes in. As an institution, HSA offers over 50 years of experience in building and managing student-run businesses, and we believe that its financial, legal, and intellectual resources will take our sales to the next level. Even better, as with all of HSA’s existing agencies, the business will continue to be run by a student manager, and one that we’re 150% confident will be a perfect fit for this role.

azhaoSo, without further ado, allow us to introduce Amy Zhao, a rising sophomore at Harvard who (as of this week) will be taking over as College Copywriters’ managing director. Just a year into college, Amy’s already an HSA veteran, having shattered expectations with a new business venture she worked on earlier this summer. She was subsequently hand-picked by HSA’s senior management for this position, and once we met her in person, it wasn’t hard to see why. She has some truly amazing ideas for the company’s future, and we know she’s eager to hear yours—so shoot her an email at amy@collegecopywriters.com to share your thoughts, pick her brain, or just say hey!

While it pains us to say goodbye, in many ways, this is a fitting end to our involvement in College Copywriters: Our dream was always to create a company run “by students, for students,” and that dream will live on in HSA’s capable hands long after our own graduation from school. We are so grateful to you all for helping us make that dream a reality, and we are elated to have the opportunity to watch our business grow and evolve under HSA’s leadership.

Students have always been (and always will be) the heart and soul of this business, and thankfully for us, no one understands that better than the team at HSA. That’s precisely why we’re so excited about the company’s future, and we hope you won’t hesitate to reach out to us with your feedback, suggestions, or just to reminisce about the good ol’ days. While we’ll be there for moral support every step of the way, rest assured that you’re in good hands.

TL;DR: Thank you for everything, look out for new assignments in the coming weeks, and as always, keep up the great work!

CC Love,
Brian & Chris

College Copywriters Announces New Content Marketplace

collegeWithoutText

Boca Raton, FL – College Copywriters, a South Florida-based startup, has launched a new version of its online content marketplace. Their new platform allows webmasters and businesses to order content for their blogs or websites directly from College Copywriters’ network of college students across the US.

Founders Brian Diener and Chris Smiles, college seniors at Emory University and Harvard University respectively, started the business in the fall of 2011. Since then, the network has completed thousands of orders and now includes over 500 student writers. Building on this success, they are releasing a new version of their website, which provides clients with a robust set of ordering options and gives writers additional opportunities to earn money.

“Freelance writing really is the perfect college job,” says Smiles. “Students are able to gain valuable work experience while choosing their own hours.”  Most students who write for College Copywriters earn around $15 per hour. Writers sign up on the site and are vetted after submitting a comprehensive writing sample that is evaluated by the team’s editors.

Most small businesses do not have the budget to hire a full time writing staff, so College Copywriters allows them to fulfill their need for quality web copy. Businesses are able to draw from a vast network of outstanding college students to create content for their blogs or websites at an affordable price.

Given the size and scope of the network, College Copywriters’ students are able to write pieces on almost any topic. “Freelance writing is not that different from a college essay,” says Diener. “They both require background research, strong writing skills and compelling content. We feel our writers are well equipped to provide high quality content for our clients.”

Diener and Smiles plan on adding more features to the platform throughout the summer. By the end of the year, they hope to have 1,000 writers signed up.

As an added bonus, the two hope that their service will help writers build relationships with clients and add to their own professional resumes, which could lead to job placements as they enter the workforce after college.
