Love the NBA and the world of basketball? Enjoy writing? Want a worldwide platform to share your views? HoopsHabit.com is for you!
NOW ACCEPTING APPLICANTS FOR THE 2013-14 SEASON FOR THESE TEAMS:
Sorry, we currently have no openings. Keep an eye open here and on Twitter @HoopsHabit to be the first to know when spots become available.
WHO WE ARE
We offer daily opinions, stats and analysis on all that makes up the National Basketball Association and are slowly integrating the NCAA level to our site.
We’re gearing up for the 2013-14 season and we have spots to fill. You can cover your favorite NBA team for a national website and grow along with us. Check out our available positions, as they often change. Have a different idea in mind? Pitch it to us. We’re always looking to improve our team and if you have a way to do that, we’d be happy to listen.
Our writers craft their own headlines or can tap into an ever-changing database created by our staff. That freedom is priceless and makes the sportswriting journey that much more enjoyable.
WHAT WE OFFER
Our goal is to get a HoopsHabit.com presence in every arena in the NBA. Our site covers all 30 teams in the NBA and is gaining national attention. Because we’re an independent company, teams are often willing to work with us in the form of access. We currently have members in Phoenix, Minnesota, Indiana and Dallas with NBA credentials and are always working with teams to get more.
You’ll get national exposure and the potential to attend practices and games, but that’s not the only way to get value from writing for HoopsHabit.com. Unlike other sites that pay only a small amount of their writers, we pay all qualified writers.
Instead of pocketing the ad revenue as so many other sites do, we give each of our writers between $1.10-$2.10/1000 page views, based on amount of articles written during the month. We believe a company is only as strong as the base and for us, that base is the writing staff.
While it doesn’t add up to much at this point, we believe in our growth and as our traffic grows, so will the revenue and so will your payments. For reference, we did 32-35,000 page views per month during the offseason and expect those numbers to grow. You can see that’s not a lot of coin, but we’re barely over a year old. We’re definitely trending in the right direction.
The only criteria for getting paid is you must write eight pieces per month to qualify. That’s basically two per week. You don’t have to be a math phenom to see the value there. The more you write and promote your pieces, the more you earn. You’re not going to get rich, but it sure beats the other sites that offer you nothing in the way of compensation.
