What should I be paid? My job is essentially a combination of marketing and web content creation. I write blog and page content for the website of a retail company.
My writing requires an in-depth and technical knowledge about the general field as well as an intimate knowledge about how to convey this information in an attractive way to the consumer base. I constantly update my own knowledge in order to provide this content.
I write consumer friendly technical info for the individual products as well as more elaborate landing pages to bring google ad traffic to. I add in-depth daily blog posts. I am also expected to manage the email marketing and as well as the online Google ads. Since I have begun this work, the readership and web sales have shot up and I expect it to continue to climb.

A few years ago there was a short story in the New Yorker set in the near future. The characters were children raised in a world where they seemed to be market research test subjects...
I really can't recall any more details than that... Does this ring any bells?

How do you become an internet phenomenon? I am a writer who wants exposure and my friends keep telling me to start a website. I've started many a blog--all dismal failures--and need perhaps good advice on how to (a) construct a unique, functional website that is easy to post on and (b) get exposure. Figured this was a good place to ask. Thanks!
