    Help Wanted: Local Search Top Contributors

    I have limited openings for Top Contributors (and Local Search News Curators) here at the forum.

    Want to join my team and help the industry???

    Phil Rozek, Darren Shaw, Colan & Scott are currently TCs. (Colan and Scott are also moderators. The rest of our team is Eric - Mod, Justin - Local News Curator, David - Forum Administrator.) Have not added any new TCs for 2 years even though we've tripled in growth. So it's time add some more talent!

    This is very much a WIN/WIN opportunity. I don't want this to take away from your business, but ADD to it! In recognition, authority and maybe even some leads - by becoming more visible and being positioned as more of an industry leader.

    Ask Colan what being so active and visible at my forum, early on, did for his career and connections!

    Many already think of the Local Search Forum as the leading place for local search news. But with my health issues (including carpal) I'm having a hard time keeping up with both communities, helping Google at their forum, keeping up with training and everything else I do.

    There is too much industry news, too many great tips and blog posts out there that need to be shared.
    I need more hands and great minds to help me AND help the industry.

    When you post, I'll push it out to my social channels with over 15,000 followers, PLUS the forum gets on average 2,800 visits a day. And the more advanced posts get shared at the Local Search Pros Community too. So it's pretty good industry exposure!

    This is not a J.O.B. - these are volunteer positions.

    BUT there are some perks!
    (Ask Colan!)

    PLUS there is a rumor (started by Colan) that I give away an iPad after 10,000 posts or 10 years of service, whichever comes 1st. I have not been able to verify with the boss, if that rumor is true.

    But you do get a TC badge to put on your site, there's a private TC forum and more...

    Plus eventually I may promote one of the TCs to become a community manager to help me on a more substantial basis, and that would be a paid P/T position.

    There are no strict requirements or time commitments. There are no moderation duties or grunt work. But to make it win/win there are expectations in return. Ideally you'll do 2 - 3 posts wk plus help answer Qs or weigh in on other posts, as you have time.

    So let me know if interested in joining the team and I'll send you more details.

    TO BE CONSIDERED:

    1) Must be an ACTIVE member in good standing at either the Forum or the Pro community.

    2) Must have excellent English, spelling and writing skills. (Normally you'll just quote a post or share a video but will need to do a little overview or share your thoughts.) Must have blog posts or social posts I can read to see the type of written skills you have and your level of activity.

    3) Must be a team player, have a positive attitude and have a passion to help the industry and position yourself as an industry leader.

    Please don't email me unless you meet all 3 criteria.

    There are a limited number of positions right now and we have so many quality members here that, I suspect spots will fill up fast. But if you don't make it in this round, I'll keep you on a waiting list, as more spots open up.

    Subject Line: I Want to be a Top Contributor

    (Please don't + mention me on this. I am buried with social emails and can't read them all, so I'm filtering most out and don't want to miss your email.)

    Thanks for considering!

    I look forward to working more closely with those of you that are selected!

    I can say without question that having been given the opportunity to be a TC at the LSF has had a profound positive effect on my career in this industry. Any opportunity to sharpen your local skills and play a big part in this industry should not be passed up.
