Get Paid For Writing About Your exam Experience
Here's the deal…
Write a blog post about how to revise/study for a subject you have taken an exam in recently and done well in. For example, ‘How to revise for GCSE Biology’ or ‘How to study for A Level Maths’.
How you earn cash from it…
We pay a £25 flat fee per blog post including a 50% commission fee on any 7 Day Exam Plans sold through your post. Here’s how this works… We will publish your blog post on The Exam Coach website and place an affiliate link on your page to The 7 Day Exam Plan. If parents, students and teachers who find your blog post go on to purchase The 7 Day Exam Plan you will receive the 50% commission fee. For example, for a £79 sale you’d receive £39.50. With over 1 million people visiting The Exam Coach website since the start of 2018 and thousands of people searching for subject specific exam help each month we’re confident you’re going to attract some web traffic, some of which will be interested in buying The 7 Day Exam Plan.
How to write the blog post…
We need to get your post ranking as high-up in the searches on Google as possible. We have our own ways of doing this but one of the easiest ways to rank highly is if the blog post is really useful in its own right. So, here’s a structure we’d like you to follow with a rough word count guide next to each section. We’re aiming for each blog post to be about 1500 words, but don’t be limited by this, often the longer and more detailed posts perform better.
Blog post title: eg. How to revise GCSE French
Your background (200 words):
Mention what you find difficult and easy about the subject (be as specific as you can eg. State which topics you find easier/more difficult)
Mention your learning style
Mention a bit about you and the other subjects/life commitments you had to fit your revision around
Classwork (200 words) :
Write about how you approached classwork throughout the year (eg. Paying attention, reviewing notes, asking questions)
The Revision (400 words) :
Write about the syllabus and how you approached revision in the lead up to the exam
What specific revision techniques did you use?
Which parts of the syllabus did you focus on in particular? Be specific. Mention the topics you had to work hardest on and how you did this.
What did you find easy and what did you find challenging?
What resources, websites or people helped you (please name and link to as many as you can).
How did you break up the syllabus to cover everything you needed to in time for the exam?
How much revision did you do?
The Exam (400 words):
Write about how you approached the exam
List your own strengths and weaknesses in an exam situation
Did you have a specific technique for completing the exam?
How many past papers did you do and what did you deliberately practice whilst doing them?
How did the real exam go? Mention any topics that came up in your exam and how you handled them.
Summary (100 words)
Mention any pro tips you have for students taking this exam in the future
What can you send in which will make the post rank even higher on Google?
A headshot. People want to know you’re a student just like them. Feel free to use a Snapchat/Instagram lens or filter if you want to go for a funnier more laid back vibe. That’s cool with us.
Photos of written notes which we can tag and place within the article - send as many as possible please!
Examples answers to questions or essay questions you personally have written in photo or scanned format.
Link to the subject syllabus for the exam board, a couple of past papers and some mark schemes.
Screenshots from any revision apps you use which we can tag and place within the article
Send your results in and we can post them with the blog post - there’s no better way to convince people they should listen to you! For your privacy, we will blur/score out your surname and other sensitive information on the certificate.
Let us know you’re interested by setting up an affiliate account here - it’s free! This creates the link we’ll use to monitor the web traffic and sales generated by your blog post.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know what subjects you’d like to write for. This way we can support you through the process.
Please send the blog post as a Word Document, Google Document, note document or pasted within the body of an email.
We’ll review and send you some feedback. We can then make a few edits together (we average 2 to 3 rounds of edits).
Once approved, we’ll publish your blog post on The Exam Coach website.
Other important information:
In order to control quality, we cannot guarantee every submission will be paid for. We will let you know whether your post qualifies for payment upon submission of the first draft. If it doesn’t qualify, we’ll let you know what changes you need to make in order for it to qualify.
Once qualified we will send you a contract to sign, with this you should provide the email address linked to a PayPal account which you’d like us to send the initial £25 fee to and also pay in any future commission fees to.
You can write individual blog posts for as many different subjects as you wish.
At peak times in the academic year we might use your blog post to advertise which would results in more web traffic and selling opportunities for you
If you want to write more than the recommended word count - please do! In fact, we’ve found the longer more detailed blog posts tend to perform better.
