Ebyline Offers Up Free Trial

Los Angeles-based Ebyline, which operates an online marketplace for freelance writers, said today that it has begun offering up a seven day, free trial to prospective customers. The startup--which counts a large number of corporations looking for content for marketing and other efforts--said the new offer allows companies to take the service for a "test drive". Unlike generic content-mill websites, Ebyline has focused on experienced journalists, writers, photographers, and video producers, who the company screens. The company said most of the people in its database are veterans of the news industry.
