Job Description

As our clientele base is always expanding and increasing, we’ve been getting a lot more work than we can quickly handle. So, we are looking to add more experienced content writers to work remotely with our in-house content management team to update and manage our growing content requirements.

Are You a Copywriter or a Content Writer?

Yes, they’re similar, but they do very different things. Let’s lay it out:

  • Copywriter: writes persuasive copy that moves people to an action (called a conversion). It’s sales-focused and it’s fairly simple to evaluate results. Deliverables usually include sales pages, web copy, landing pages, emails.
  • Content writer: writes content that entertains, informs, or educates an audience in an effort to earn trust and credibility. Harder to measure results. Deliverables usually include ebooks, white papers, infographics, video scripts, etc.

Some people do both. Some stay strictly in one lane. That doesn’t make one approach right or wrong as long as they can articulate the difference to you.

Can you think critically and execute an idea from start to finish.

  • Can you organize ideas in a logical way?
  • Do you have a clear tone and style?
  • Do you understand their audience?
  • Is your content easy to read?
  • Are your sentences well-constructed?
  • Is the information in your content clear and simply told?
  • Are all of these things consistent in your content from the beginning to the end of every piece you write?

Do you have other skills required for writing?

  • SEO content writing and copywriting skills
  • Basic SEO skills by Ahref and Simple SEO by Moz
  • Basic Keyword research skills
  • Good communication and rapport skills
  • Are you a great, courageous writers who understand people and their motivations
  • Do you understand the technical side of content creation

Jimmy’s advice might seem familiar to you if you’ve read this blog about why marketing writers need to do more than just write. In fact, Kapost says a similar thing in their Content Operations and Strategy Hiring Handbook: “Keep in mind that content teams are increasingly responsible for not just simple writing and editing but also the strategy and operations behind content.”
They cite the following chart as support:
kkJimmy and I—along with the marketing leaders who responded above—all agree that writers need to be multi-talented. But what about some of the squishier “soft skills” a writer should have? What’s something that’s harder to look for when interviewing potential in-house writers? Harendra Kapur, Head of Writing at Velocity Partners, has an idea.
