Company Description
Wikimotive was conceptualized in 2009 and founded the following year by its President, Timothy Martell. Beginning as a Search Engine Optimization service focused on the automotive industry, Wikimotive has grown quickly; now servicing numerous verticals and providing a broad range of digital marketing services to its clients. Wikimotive’s mission is to provide comprehensive online marketing solutions to auto dealerships and businesses of all sizes. We continually hone our services to maintain our position at the cutting edge of the digital marketing industry. Through preemptive responses to an ever changing market and steadfast commitment to innovation, we keep our clients ahead of the curve and before the eyes of the customers and consumers that they serve. Wikimotive’s slogan is, “No Contracts, No Commitments, Just Results.” Other online marketing companies merely accept checks and claim they have worked tirelessly, not ever truly substantiating that claim. We not only provide the results that we promise, but are completely transparent about the process we go through to achieve said results. Every page we build and every link we create is made available for our clients to see, ensuring that they are receiving the expected return on their investment. At Wikimotive we do not want to provide clients with only the expected results; we want to become a trusted asset which they can utilize beyond our service menu. Thinking about acquiring a new marketing service that is not listed on our menu of provided services? Just ask us, we will gladly provide the additional services required; if we can’t provide it at a competitive price, we will recommend another trusted provider who can. Our entire executive team has prior professional experience in car dealerships and the retail world in general. We are here to provide for our clients, to be the ultimate answer for all their digital marketing questions.

Company reviews
"Disorganized. Poor Pay system. Confusing guidelines "
Current EmployeeFreelance Editor
Not a place for serious writers. What works for one editor, gets a revision notice from another. No consistency. Rules and requirements are not clearly spelled out. Often times they leave you to figure it out on your own. You won’t get paid for two months after you complete your assignments. You write articles for next months publications, but don’t get paid until the month after. I’ve been a freelance writer for five years, written 3 books, and 2 screenplays, this was one of the most bizarre, unorganized, poorly run writing companies I’ve ever worked for. If you’re a good writer who takes pride in his work stay away. If you’re a mediocre writer just looking for a paycheck, you might be ok, if you can figure out the requirements and formats, but don’t expect to get paid fairly or in a timely manner.

"Solid Content Gig!"
Current EmployeeContent Writer
This is a decent remote writing job. Like most freelance content gigs, you won't get rich; that said, if you're a quality writer who can knock out twenty-to-thirty 1200-word articles a month, you can expect to make $1000 to $1500 to start. Wikimotive has a writer-friendly setup where you simply submit the finished copy. The peeps behind the scenes (led by Kelsea & Wyatt) are very cool and helpful as well. For someone like myself making a transition into writing, I wasn't sure what to expect. Wikimotive made it easy for me to express myself and learn on a daily basis. Overall, I have zero issue recommending them!
