Writer (Blog)

I run a vintage clothing website called Garm Shack and I am on the hunt for anyone who would be interested in writing a blog/blogs for us. I am struggling to find ways of people who would be interested in this so thought maybe this is a good start. So like I say I am looking for anyone who can write blogs on the following topics:

  • Fashion – Mainly 90s fashion, but can be on any fashion really as we want to cover all angles.
  • Music
  • Popular culture/ anything relevant currently

After years of hard work, we have a decent sized following for an SME. I am approaching 30k followers on Instagram and we get most of our traffic through Instagram and obviously our website. So whoever is willing to work with us, will get credit where ever we post the blogs, and could potentially be good work experience for anyone to say they worked with a local SME externally.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Kind Regards,

Lyle Cross (info@garmshack.com)

Andriod App and Website Developer

This is a freelance role that can be performed from home.

I am looking for a creative and technically minded group or individual to create an app for Android and a desktop website.

I want to bring forums into a more modern format – therefore I need things like user registrations created, a trending page, a user to be able to set up discussions, share discussions on other platforms, receive notifications, user profile feature and I will need back-end administration and for somebody to show me how to use it. Examples of similar formats are 9gag and Reddit – (due to scale it may be more suitable for the group than an individual)

I have been an entrepreneur from a very young age and “Just Express Yourself Ltd” is my latest Start-Up Venture. I have run some of the worlds largest forums as a hobby in the past but they are outdated concepts now so I want to bring a modern version of them with my own USP for it which I can discuss in greater detail if you are interested. I have the business acumen and marketing skills but I lack the technical skills to make this a success and that is where you will come in and I truly believe this will be an exciting project for whoever gets involved.

A basic pay for the work can be discussed with anyone interested but incentives/additional payments will also be made based on member registration levels so somebody with knowledge on things like SEO would be preferred.

Please contact Sunny on 07946652426 or you can also E-mail me on sunny.mamtora@hotmail.co.uk
