Newsletter Content Manager - Glass Half Full

Milwaukee, WI
Marketing
Contractor
Bright Cellars is the monthly wine subscription startup that delivers wine to your door. We're on a mission to make the world of wine fun and educational, while also helping wine drinkers define their taste and discover new wines.

We recently launched a daily newsletter called Glass Half Full to help readers expand their wine knowledge. It's designed to be fun, educational, aspirational, and approachable. It currently has 10K readers but is growing quickly. Readership has doubled in the last month.

We're looking for someone to write and coordinate it. Sign up for the newsletter here to see examples: https://newsletter.brightcellars.com/

Your Deliverables:

    • Write the Glass Half Full newsletter for each day, M-F. Each newsletter should include 2 articles and 2-3 summaries related to wine. We'll provide general categories (wine pairing of the week, wine news, wine hack of the week, etc) but topics will be up to you.

    • An article (101-250 words) is defined as content that can stand alone. You should include links to any supporting articles used, but the reader should be able to comprehend the majority of the topic without having to click out.

    • A summary (50-100 words) is a short paragraph where some of the topic may not be understood without clicking another link. It might be an intro to an article, a featured IG handle or blog of the week, or just a short paragraph about a topic that doesn't need a lot of words. 

This is a general contract position. As such, work hours and location is up to you. Each newsletter will be due a min of 24 hours in advance of the send, but you're welcome to submit them as early as you'd like, as topics are not necessarily time-sensitive. Position will be paid at a flat rate per newsletter.

Experience with wordpress and mailchimp is preferred, but not required.
