As a Writer at Awesome Motive, you’re responsible for growing our organic traffic and converting website visitors into email subscribers and customers.

You have the ability to research and understand technical concepts, then explain them in simple terms to people who aren’t tech-savvy.
You’re comfortable with accepting critical feedback without taking it personally.
You’re a self-starter who loves taking initiative to solve problems and learn new skills, and are comfortable working with minimal direction.
You take pride in the quality and craftsmanship of your work rather than just doing it to get it done.
You're results-oriented and focused on the outcome of your writing, not just the words themselves.
You’re an excellent communicator who makes sure nothing slips through the cracks.
You’re passionate about leaving your mark on the web for all to see.
You enjoy helping others on your team succeed.

Common responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

Conducting keyword research to identify target keywords and using those keywords to plan, structure, and optimize your content.
Planning blog calendars in Asana and keeping ahead of schedule with minimal oversight.
Monitoring SEO rankings and optimizing existing content to boost traffic and conversions.
Working closely with developers and support team members to write new feature announcements.
Writing email newsletters and automated campaigns and sending them using Drip.

Here are the skills and experience that will come in handy:
Advanced WordPress.org Experience: You’re comfortable with writing and formatting posts and pages, setting up new self-hosted WordPress sites, installing and configuring themes and plugins, troubleshooting errors, etc.
Writing and Editing: You can write a well-structured article with impeccable grammar and spelling in a conversational tone. You can edit and proofread your own work to eliminate careless errors instead of relying on an editor to fix them for you.
Copywriting: You can understand your audience and use their own language to position products as solutions to their pain points. Your writing is persuasive and gets conversions, not just traffic.
Image Editing: You can efficiently take screenshots; resize and crop images; add text, borders, or other elements; compress images; and upload and format them in WordPress so that they are clear, useful, and look good.
SEO: You understand what SEO is and why it’s important. You know how to research keyword volume and search intent and how to effectively use keywords in your content without keyword stuffing. You have optimized and high-ranking content in your portfolio.
Basic HTML: You can use the text editor in WordPress to add link attributes and do basic formatting of lists, subheadings, anchor links, etc. with HTML.
Google Analytics: You know how to analyze the results of your content in Google Analytics.
Time Management: You’re able to juggle multiple tasks and projects and prioritize your work effectively to meet all deadlines.

Social Media Marketing Writers

Write for Us!
SocialScouts is looking for writers for our blog!
We have so much information we want to share and not enough time to write it all, so we’ve decided that it’s time to bring some writers on board.

How it’ll work
We’ll come up with a headline for the articles that we want written, and we’ll give you the freedom to research and write them. For each article, we’ll state about how many words it should be. Then, when you’ve finished writing it, we’ll look it over and when we think it’s ready, we’ll publish it.

For most of our articles, we target about 2,000 words. For these articles, we will pay 2 cents per word which comes out to about $40 for articles that we publish.

As you gain experience writing for socialScouts you’ll get more flexibility in choosing your own topics and outlining and writing articles as you like. As we move in that direction, your pay will increase.

What we’re looking for in writers
We’re not looking to hire full-time employees. We just want to pay you for the articles you write.

You don’t have to be a professional writer, but we do need people who can use correct English spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

We want people who can commit to writing two to four (2-4) 2,500-word articles per month and do the research that goes into that. Please include the code word "turtles" when you respond to this ad.

If you have experience writing for a blog, that’s a big plus, but we’re really going to make our decisions based on a sample of your writing.

How To Apply

If this sounds like a great opportunity for you, then we would love to hear from you and make sure to respond to this job posting with a little bit about who you are, your experience, and a few samples of work. We look forward to hearing from you!

Tech Website Writers, Editors & Content Managers

We’re recruiting for a few performance marketing companies in the tech niche who are on the look-out for outstanding content writers, editors, and content managers. The companies and their teams are 100% remote so you can work from anywhere in the world. No tech experience required.

We’re looking for candidates who are:

Skilled writers by training — You are a master of the English language and should be able to demonstrate your ability to tailor content to different audiences.
Hungry to learn — You should be excited to learn from experts in this field and up your content game within the performance marketing/tech niche. You should be a quick learner who can soak up information like a sponge and immediately apply what you learn consistently in your work.
Highly adaptable with a growth mindset — You should be comfortable working in fast-paced environments. You aren’t afraid of change and take it as an opportunity to grow.
Perfectionists at heart — You can follow guidelines to a T. You have a keen eye for detail and are an expert at noticing factual errors, weird formatting, typos, grammar faux pas etc. You never make the same mistake twice.
Experienced with digital content — You don’t draw a blank when we talk about inserting meta descriptions, adding alt text, optimizing image file names, checking page layouts on web view vs. mobile view. Bonus if you already have experience creating high-converting content.
Always taking initiative — You should be resourceful and take initiative to research subjects you do not (yet) understand. You love digging deeper and you’re not ok with being “unsure”. You are not afraid to ask questions to further your own learning and growth.
Performance marketing enthusiasts — You should have a basic-to-good understanding of how performance marketing works (or be resourceful enough to Google it before applying).
Remote work veterans — We don’t want to have to explain to you how this whole remote working thing works. So you need to have excellent time management skills, organization skills, and understand that you need to be communicative and keep your team updated with your progress.
Available for a minimum of 15 hours per week — We’re being straight up about this: there will be a steep learning curve so this is the minimum required from you to invest in your own growth.
Looking for long-term jobs + growth opportunities — We like working with talented people (forever and ever if possible) so we cultivate long-term working relationships with our team members. We also like grooming individuals to take on bigger roles within our teams.
There are different types of content you might be working on, including long-form blog posts, link-building articles, product reviews, sales landing pages etc.

Note: Our training process involves some writing (yes, even if you’re an editor/content manager) to get fluent with the new content guidelines. You’ll learn how to take a poor performing page (that may require an entire overhaul) and turn it into a page that converts. You need to be able to execute this yourself in order to create articles independently down the line. This will be an intensive training period paid at a competitive rate. Increases and progression will be subject to KPIs being met.

If you’re interested in any of these positions, please apply here. Should you be shortlisted, you’ll be contacted to do a written test before a final decision is made. Unsuccessful applicants will not be notified.

We look forward to receiving your application! Good luck!
