The Content Factory (owned by Kari DePhillips of Workationing) is a growing content, PR and social media marketing firm in need of a remote content marketing assistant to help us meet the needs of our expanding list of clients. We’re a virtual agency with no physical offices, and this position requires that you work from home – or wherever there’s wifi. We’ll also need you to help out with some content marketing for The Workationing Podcast, too.
To find out more about our company culture and why we all work remotely, check out this post by Kari. This position will start out as freelance (1099-contract), and can move to a full-time employment opportunity.
If hired, you’ll join a team of 12 people spread out over 7 states – all working together to create killer case studies for some pretty cool companies. You’ll also be working for a CEO who “takes job perks to the max,” according to NBCNews. Our clients range from major household brands to tech startups.
This position is open to people located anywhere in the world, but you must write in English well, since most communication will be via chat and email.
What You’ll Do
- Content marketing for using the Skyscraper Technique
- Graphic design for social media images (you should be familiar with Canva)
- Upload blog posts to WordPress (and optimize them)
- Upload video content to YouTube (and optimize it)
- Influencer research and outreach
- A lot of research work in general
- General online assistant work
- Bonus points for: graphic design, video editing
Most of our team is on EST, though we have a few employees on PST and Kari is currently based in Amsterdam (+6 EST). We’re a digital nomad-friendly company, and we don’t care where you’re based as long as you get your work in on time and can take conference calls as needed.
You’re going to learn a lot working here, and hopefully we can learn a thing or two from you as well! We have a very particular way of going about things, but we have step-by-step guides for it all and we can train the right candidate to do just about anything.
If all goes well, there’s also the opportunity to advance at the company – you could become a copywriter, PR rep or social media manager depending on your knowledge and expertise. Most of the people on the team have been here for years, and we have a very low turnover rate. Ideally, we’ll be working together for a long time!
What We’re Looking For
We need a reliable person who is comfortable working remotely and can consistently meet deadlines without a boss breathing down your neck about it. The person should be a team player, and be willing to pitch in and help on a variety of clients.
This is a detail-oriented position, and the candidate needs to be a detail-oriented person – around here, we all are. Writing compelling emails, conveying a positive attitude through your email content, is a must.
Pay and How to Apply
To apply for our remote content marketing assistant position, please email [email protected] a cover letter detailing your experience and highlighting some of the work you’ve done (or been a part of). Also, why you want the job and think you’d be a good fit. Make sure to specify which time zone you’re in/what hours you’ll be available.
We’re much more interested in a compelling cover letter than an extensive resume, so keep that in mind while you’re writing it. Again, extra points go to those who have design experience, particularly with webinar slides – examples are required if you cite this as an area of expertise.
We often receive hundreds of applications for our job postings, so we may not get back to you immediately but we will respond to all applicants – even if it’s with a no.
Pay starts at $15/hr, based on experience. Starts at 20 hrs per week, could go up to 40 depending on performance. Can be contract or employee-based, depending on a variety of factors. Pay is on the 1st and 15th of the month.
