Use Your Editing Skill-Set To Build A Career In Online Marketing... By Joining One Of The Most Established Brands In The Industry
Most job advertisements will talk about what they expect from you. But let's spend a moment focusing on what YOU should expect from your next job.
Of course, there are non-negotiables like a stable salary that allows you to provide for yourself and your family. Most companies will offer that these days.
But you're likely to be looking for something more…
What if your next job wasn't just a way to make the ends meet? What if instead, every day you'd be learning from the sharpest people in a high-growth industry… and picking up in-demand skills that will propel your career forward unlike anything else?
If that's something you've been looking for, keep on reading :)
First, a little bit about us.
Who We Are
Most people don't realize how impactful online marketing is. Some of the largest companies in the world (like Google and Facebook) base their entire businesses around it.
While the space is still young, it will keep growing for decades to come. We at Diggity Marketing have been insightful (and, let's be honest, lucky) enough to establish our name in this industry from its earliest days.
The sub-niche of online marketing that we're cornering is Search Engine Optimization or SEO. From consulting to education to done-for-you agencies to running our own SEO-driven websites, we're a premier name in the space.
You'll be joining the team of our educational website DiggityMarketing.com while occasionally collaborating with our other businesses (Authority Builders, The Search Initiative, Leadspring, and more).
The core group working on the website is a small but powerful team of 5 - with a larger cast of regular writers and subcontractors helping us too.
As we're growing our impact on the SEO community, we need your help to grow and manage our content team.
But what's in it for you? Why would you want to join us?
6 Reasons To Join Diggity Marketing As Our Editor
>> 1. Use Your Natural Impulse To Take Something Good and Make It Better
The written word is your tool and you wield it with grace and enthusiasm. You have an uncanny ability to identify the missing pieces or gaps in logic that brings the writing together.
As an editor, you love to take something good and make it even better. Improving a piece of writing gives your a sense of accomplishment.
You don't mind if the task is super finicky and detail-oriented. When you see a mistake, be it a typo or an incomplete sentence revision, you get excited. “I can fix this!”
If this sounds like you, then your passion for communication and attention to detail is EXACTLY what we're looking for. So if you want to be in a role that perfectly matches your natural inclinations, join our team.
>> 2. Build A Career In A High-Growth Industry: Online Marketing
Online marketing is here to stay. And with more and more of our lives happening online, it's only going to get bigger.
But this space is still in its early days. Get in now, and your career will likely rise with the rest of the industry.
And Diggity Marketing is the perfect place for developing your career in online marketing. Why? Because our entire business is educating people about online marketing and SEO.
Previous experience in digital marketing and SEO is essential for this role. However, we'll also provide you with world-class training materials to take your skills to the next level.
So if you want to build your career in online marketing, joining us is the way to do it.
>> 3. Fast Professional Growth
There's always more work to be done at Diggity Marketing.
Show that you can excel at your current tasks, and we'll be happy to give you more responsibilities… and the recognition and rewards that come with it.
We're not caught up in weird office politics like many larger companies are. We only care about getting work done - and doing it well. If you can do that, you'll rise fast - regardless of how long you've been with us or your current position.
If that's how you like to work, we want you on our team.
>> 4. Stability
The ugly flip-side of joining a small and hungry team is often instability. If things go to plan, everything's great. But if there's a downswing, your livelihood can be under threat too.
Luckily, we're not in that boat. We're a proven and profitable business that's been around for years.
If a mix of growth and stability is something you value, Diggity Marketing is the place for you.
>> 5. Awesome Work Environment
We know how important a healthy and thriving work environment is for the success of the company. That's why we insist on:
- Complete Work/Life Balance. We want you to be working at 100% capacity, which means you need to rest too.
- Supportive Environment. We don’t put unnecessary stress on our team. It sucks and isn't even productive.
- Regular Feedback/One-On-Ones. We keep things candid. If you mess up, we tell you, so you have a chance to get better. And when you’re doing well, we tell you that too.
- Strong Anti-BS Policy. Anybody in the company can (and is expected to) tell the Marketing Manager when he is wrong. There are no bureaucratic or BS rules getting in the way of getting work done.
- No Micro-Management. Once you’re trained and have demonstrated you know your stuff, we're pretty hands-off. In fact, if you need external management to stay on-task and motivated, we're probably not the place for you.
- Investing In Your Training. You’ll be learning new things all the time. Besides, you'll be strongly encouraged to invest your time in improving your systems and work processes - and anything else that can make your job easier.
- No Toxic People. Imagine never having to interact with toxic people at work - how nice would that be?
- Freedom To Be Yourself. You don’t have to put on a fake professional face. Just be yourself. You can talk smack and have a laugh with your Manager, and no one will think anything of it.
This sounds pretty awesome to us. If it does to you too, join our team!
>> 6. Work Remotely And Set Your Own Hours
Whether you want to work from home in your pajamas or at a cafe by the beach, we don't mind. So long as you put your hours in and get your work done on time, we’re happy.
What's even cooler is the freedom to set your own hours. No one expects you to work 8 hours straight day-in and day-out.
If you're more productive working in bursts, go for it. If you need to pick up the kids from school or just want to get a workout in, by all means.
We know you can manage your own time. Why would we do it for you?
