Thanks for your interest in working with Tidewater Family! We are always in need of people for the following positions.
Advertising Sales Representative
This position can be full- or part-time and requires candidates with excellent communication skills. The position is commission-based and can be home-based. Your primary task would be to contact family-related businesses and present the opportunity to advertise in Tidewater Family—both in the print magazine and online. Often this can be done with phone calls and follow-up emails, but meeting potential clients in person can also be very effective.
We provide you with training, support, and materials. We require that you contact a minimum of 20 new businesses each week. Much of your job entails maintaining files on your prospects and clients and conducting follow-up calls.
In addition to having excellent communication skills, candidates must be very detail-oriented, enjoy working with people, and LOVE Tidewater Family.

We are always on the lookout for writers for Tidewater Family. Our style is informal and conversational. Shorter paragraphs work best. Length varies from 600-700 words for shorter articles to 1500 or so for longer articles.
Writers fall into two categories:
- Local Experts - We welcome informational articles about your area of expertise as long as they are not self-promoting. For example, if you are a dentist, an appropriate article might be about sealants, why they are important, and when children’s teeth should be sealed. The first step is to contact the editor at email@example.com and provide a few topics you might like to write about. If these topics are a good fit for TF, the editor might suggest that you write a sample article for consideration. For your contribution, you would receive a blurb at the end of the article with your name, credentials, and contact info. It’s a great way to gain visibility for your business or health care practice.
- Freelance Writers - If you would like to receive assignments and/or pitch story ideas, please send your resume and writing samples to firstname.lastname@example.org.
