LIBRARY: Apply || Back to Job Listings

There is a space here for 1 or 2 people, depending on what the area will evolve into. You will be searching the net for information about books to do with graphics creation, web design, etc. The problem with this section is that we have as yet been unable to find many publishers who will give us books to review ourselves, but, Amazon has given us permission to use their reviews when promoting the books on our site.
This position is currently filled.


MARKETING: Apply || Back to Job Listings

Our marketing area has two functions - one to promote other people on our site, and sell their products, and marketing ourselves to other sites to increase awareness. There are several opportunities here for people. One idea we had is just replying to guestbook posts and signing other people's guestbooks. For those of you who feel that you are newbie at HTML or graphics and are not quite sure what area you'd like to join - consider Marketing.

INCOME GENERATION:
Part of Marketing: We need 2 or 3 people who can work together to think of ways for our site to generate income, and implement those ideas. There are a number of ways we can use our site to generate income. One is advertizing. Other ideas have been
  1. charging people a nominal amount to have their sites listed in our tutorials ection
  2. charging people for a feature link on our main page
  3. there was a suggestion about creating a page for featured links, and charging a small amount for doing so
  4. create a paid members section - this will require a lot of site and content building at first in order to give people their money's worth, but it is something we have looked at.


ORIENTATION: Apply || Back to Job Listings

The job is not difficult and can be performed by one person. The only problem with having one person in this job is that when they fall out, there is no one to replace them. We would like some input on what else we can do to help our new members feel welcome.
This position is currently filled.

TUTORIALS: Apply || Back to Job Listings

There is room here for 4-6 tutorial editors as they will be rewriting tutorials for versions 6, 7, 8, and 9. The editors will most likely be working in pairs, as not many people have both version 6, 7, 8, and 9 on their computer.

We want to have every tutorial updated quickly. All the tutorials will need to fit our layout template.
