Are you a former journalist or student of journalism?
Do you have experience either as an editor at a publication, or pitching website editors?
Are you a great editor of the written word who can "get into the heads" of the people you are pitching?
If so, this hybrid article editing / digital PR position might be just the role for you.
We are a distributed media company of 22 people, and we regularly pitch and publish at authoritative websites in our verticals. Collectively, we have published articles at some of the biggest websites on the internet.
Our process is that we pitch an article idea or ideas to a website after researching said website, they approve an idea, we then submit an article and publish it on that website. This gains us exposure as a company, and links, which are important for SEO.
Who we are looking for is someone who can:
- Edit emails for grammar and, more importantly, tone.
- We are performing cold outreach, so it's essentially that we strike the perfect pitch when reaching out to a publisher for the first time
- Make suggestions on article ideas and angles that we can take build more relationships with publishers
- Review and approve articles for publishing. As the Editor, you are essentially the final authority on article quality
- Document digital PR best practices and contribute to our internal Knowledge Base
This is an hourly role to start, with an estimated 3-6 hours per week initially. You don't need to be online at a specific time but you do need to be able to batch edit and approve content and/or emails at least one time every 48 hours.
If you want to learn more about SEO, this position is potentially a great fit. We are growing fast and there is strong potential for this position to scale up, so we plan to hire someone who can reliably commit to this hourly project for the foreseeable future.
Sound interesting? Please apply with a short explanation of an experience you have in journalism, writing, or digital PR, at least one example of something you have written in the past, your hourly rate, and include the "hamburger pancake" somewhere in the first 30 words of your application.
