What are blog ideas?
Blog Ideas on Scripted allow you to pitch an original topic idea directly to a customer.
The type of idea you should submit will be based on the information provided by the customer in their request. Requests are available to review in the Available Work section of your account, and will typically include detailed guidance on what type of topic that customer is looking for.
If a customer approves your idea, a job will be assigned directly to your account.
What is the difference between "Custom" and "General" blog ideas?
If a Scripted customer requests Blog Ideas specifically from you, that request will be visible under Available Work > Custom Ideas and Proposals.
Ideas submitted under Available Work > Blog Ideas (General) will be visible to every customer on Scripted. You can pitch a variety of ideas, and need only ensure that they fit the larger category topic, such as “Software and Technology” or “Accounting and Finance.” Customers will be able to purchase these ideas from the Blog Idea Board.
How do I keep track of ideas I’ve already submitted?
After you've pitched an idea, you can track its status in the Pitch History tab. Within this tab there are four sections: Pending, Accepted, Rejected, and Inactive.
- Pending: View a list of your pitch submissions that are currently pending. Clients typically review pitches within 1 or 2 weeks, and many are reviewed in fewer than 4 or 5 days.
- Accepted: This page will include a list of your pitch submissions that have been accepted by clients.
- Rejected: On this page you can view a list of your pitch submissions that have been rejected by clients.
- Inactive: This page will include a list of all pitch submissions that have not been accepted or reject after an extended period of time.
How do I cancel an idea?
If you’re no longer interested in completing a pitched idea you can cancel it at any time.
To do this, find your previously submitted idea in the Pitch History tab of your account. Then, click the Remove button to the right of the topic.
After clicking this button, a popup will appear asking you to confirm that you’d like to remove the pitch.
Click Yes and your pitch will be removed.
