Position Description & Responsibilities

As a Freelance Content Writer, you’ll be responsible for writing high-quality content in a variety of forms, including short- and long-form articles, guest posts, websites, ad copy, and more with the goal of driving traffic and conversions to various websites associated with the companies in our portfolio.

In this role, you will be expected to conduct in-depth research, which may occasionally include interviews. This role is for you if you’re a savvy and experienced writer, can operate independently, like working on a diversity of projects, and can learn and adapt quickly.
You may be asked to ghost-write pieces as well – it is important to be able to emulate the voice and tone of another person, as much as you might adapt your writing to suit a specific brand.

This is an hourly position that can be done remotely from anywhere. Ideally you can sync your workday with the US east coast maybe an hour or two each day, depending on where you are.

Please be prepared to submit a PDF portfolio of 3-5 articles or related marketing pieces averaging 500-1500 words length. Topics can be of your choosing. Bonus points if you have experience writing affiliate marketing pieces or guest post pieces for link building.

**This position can be part-time or full-time, depending on your availability/bandwidth. You do not have to take work from us 100% of the time to be part of our freelance team – we’re more interested in finding the right talent who work at a certain level of quality who we can trust to tackle complex and engaging types of writing for our clients.
