As my business continues to grow, I still seem to have less and less time to spend in all the areas I know that I should.  In particular, I know that my Long Tail Pro business has lots of room for growth; and for that reason I’ve decided that I need some help.

That’s right, I’m looking for a full-time team member to help me grow the Long Tail Pro business.  If you are a qualified applicant, please apply below!

Sounds like a sweet gig. I’ve got my hands full with several sites and a family, but wish you luck man.

Hieu Luong

Great job.


Hey Spencer and Perrin !

I would love to apply for the position, because this is somewhat of a dream job, but I fear I’m not qualified enough in the presentation skills arena. I wish you all the best in finding the right person for the job!

Spencer Haws

Thanks Mason!


Nice opportunity Spencer, will try my hand. Thanks.


Hi Spencer,

That’s simply awesome ! One question: should the person you are looking to hire necessarily live in the U.S. ?


Spencer Haws

US based is not required. I will point out that excellent writing skills ARE required…so a native English speaker is likely to have the best writing skills.

Hung Pham

Thank you for your project, that is great. However, I am just a new comer take part in into the IM field. I have not much experience about longtail pro, SEO…

I hope you will have the best team with experienced members. Count in me if I have another chance.


Nice offer! Some lucky person is going to get a dream job!

I admire your success Spencer. You are an inspiration to us all.


How exciting Spencer! Glad to see your business grow, and always look forward to the new and informative information you and Perrin put out. You guys make learning a lot easier and enjoyable.

Spencer Haws

Thanks Kyle.


great news and its unfortunate that I am unable to apply for this role given an existing full time opportunity i am undertaking.

Best of luck with the new role, will be looking forward to listening to it on your podcast.


Great to see that you are expanding….. I just know that you will be continuing to provide your top notch quality posts as you will have a little more time and that you will have more products for us.

Super development.!



best of luck 🙂


Off topic, but still about LTP

How heavily is DA a determining factor in KC.

i.e. I’ve found a keyword that has a LMS of 3,600 with a KC of 29, however looking at the results the top 10 have high DA, with the excepting of 3 niche sites, which are 18, 30 & 25. The other 7 have 35+.

I would assume with all these sites having such high DA that would affect the KC, it seems low to me.

steve wyman

Hey Matt

You have three niche sites in the top ten and an overall KC of 29! game on…

Remember the overall KC for the keyword is the average of the top ten so low ones pull high ones down.

I assume the ones your picking out with high DA also have high KC but then that’s likely to happen of the also have great back links

Spencer Haws

With 3 weaker niche sites in the top 10, sounds like it deserves a lower KC. However, to clarify…the KC number is primarily based off of PA, not DA. The strength of the page is a critical ranking factor.



We need Long Tail Pro on the go~~~ Please develop Long Tail Pro into a mobile app~ Then i will be a happy man~ haha

Spencer Haws

Note taken 🙂

Al-Amin Kabir

Good luck with your new employee, Spencer 🙂

Oloyede Jamiu

Hey Spencer,

Its good to hear that you are recruiting for LongTailPro.

I wish you best of luck.


I was wondering about the same thing as Cédric… Should you live in the USA to have any chance of getting the job?

Spencer Haws

No, but excellent written and verbal communication is essential.


What a dream job. I have learned an enormous about about having a niche website from you over the past year. It would be an honor to partner with you to spread the word of Long Tail Pro even further. I could not imagine “not” having my Premium account to check keywords quickly as I go.


Mike Mahoney

Hey Spencer. I plan to put something together for you by the end of the week. I believe I have the skills to do this, though you may not see it in my experience. Hopefully by Friday is okay. Whoever gets this, I wish you and him/her the best. I think LTP is a great product!

Thanks for the invite.


Spencer Haws

Yes, this job post will remain open for at least 1 week.

Scott Rist

Hey Spencer,

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to join the team. I sent an email out earlier today. The wheels are already churning out ideas! I look forward to hearing back from you after I return from my trip on the 27th. Good luck with the search!



Feels like a contest. But I’m looking forward to hear about the new recruit.

I didn’t apply because I don’t have near any time to work so good luck to all you applicants!


Hi Spencer,

This is a golden opportunity.

I see not only the money on this opportunity but also the priceless experience that I can get.

But I`m afraid I`m not the right candidate because I only know how to buy a domain set it up, post, and other beginner activities 😀

Is there any opportunity for you to share your experience in managing your team?

I wish you can get the right man as soon as possible.

Finding the right man is hard but it will be harder to keep them on board and stay motivated.


Spencer Haws

Thanks Ronny…and yes, I’ll discuss managing my team in the future.


I own a few niche sites here and there, I got inspired by one of your (shaving niche site)…I have also sold sites on flippa, …i have learned most things after making mistakes…not sure if i’m a good applicant….but i’m good at doing business. Your product is pretty nice, i have recommended it many times on flippa….All the best

Ndy Wills

Hey Spencer…Now may be a good time to drop in suggestion for Longtail Pro

I have been using it for a while and i must say I’m loving it everyday! However would it be possible to include an additional feature in the rank tracker section where you can also click to check rankings for just a single term and not the whole keywords.
Wish you luck with the hiring process!

Spencer Haws

We have some updates coming to the rank checking that I think you’ll like 🙂

Ndy Wills

Looking forward to the Updates!
Thanks and good luck again in all your projects


The open position here at Long Tail Pro is an amazing opportunity! As a single mother, it would make a tremendous difference for my family! I am openly confirming that I would love the position as I believe that I could really add value to the team. I absolutely love internet marketing; I breath, sleep, and eat the fundamentals of marketing mastery.

However, although I am grateful that I currently earn a full-time income from home, it would be nice to have a base income to stabilize the highs & lows that I currently experience online.

It really is my dream position! I would rock at it because it embodies the things that I’m already doing daily in my current business.

Who could ask for more: you get to work from home, blogging, promoting, & building relationships! It also allows me to continue building my personal blogs and audience with the addition of Long Tail Pro as a primary offer.

It’s easy to sell because everybody needs it to succeed online. If they didn’t think they needed it before, they will discover that they do need it when I’m done telling them why!

So pick me! I’m your gal! I will get the job done!

Spencer Haws

Thanks for the kind words, and your interest.

Vladimir Bestic

Application sent 🙂

Good luck to everyone, this is a really great opportunity!


Hey Spencer,

Being able to work with you would be an honor, but I believe I lack some of those few skills you’ve mentioned especially the “Reaching out to bloggers..” & “Network with influencers thing…

I’ve been working as a web developer for a few years now and I just entered the internet marketing arena for passive income. The first tool that I used is your long tail pro trial version, very nice and so easy to navigate even for beginners.

I hope you find the best person to work with you.


Spencer Haws

Thanks Jhun!


Hi Spencer,

Is this job posting still open?


Spencer Haws

Yes! But I’ll be closing it probably in the next couple of days, so I can review all applicants.


I have Long Tail Pro premium that I purchased last year, . It is definitely great application! I love it! however, Since I return to my country, I have not able to use the software. my Assumption is because of the connection that I have at only 3,1Mbps. I tried and waited too long but no result on the keyword research. may be you can work on making application lighter and able to work on slower internet connection. Thank you

Spencer Haws

It should still work. File a support ticket:…and we’ll look into it.


Hi Spencer,
I have the same problem. I have written to support in May and in June and again today (2nd of October!) and still no answer…
Can you help? Katya

Spencer Haws
