Why aren't you on nDash?

When it comes to looking for freelance writing gigs, there are quite a few websites and job boards meant to help you. From Contena to freelancer.com, but nDash is a little different. This article will go over why nDash beats out its competition, and how you can find successful gigs on nDash as opposed to the other job boards out there. Contena has an exorbitant fee to sign up, freelancer.com requires you to bid on a job, and unless you are well-established other websites won't be much help.

Website Copy

Hello, I was on your website I noticed a lot of filler verbiage on your homepage.

nDash Calendars (subject to Change

I saw that you were looking for an article about calendars on nDash. I would be happy to write that for you, but I wanted to reach out and ask for a couple of clarifications.

I'm sorry that this isn't a typical pitch but like I said I would love to write it up for you. I look forward to hearing from you, and I am enjoying exploring the premium side so far.
