We are looking to hire someone to help us write up articles for our sites about stock photography and footage: mainly stockphotosecrets.com and footagesecrets.com. This will be an ongoing project. You can expect to write at least 2 articles (2,000 words minimum) every month.
The ideal candidate:
- Is fluent in written English and preferably a native speaker.
- Can mimic our writing voice (example 1 or example 2)
- Has a track record of writing compelling long-form content
- Has a good command of WordPress
- Has basic knowledge of SEO and how to optimize blog posts correctly
- Isn't afraid to bring ideas to the table and make suggestions
- Content UX is at least exciting if you don't even have experience with it.
Work will be remote, but preference will be given to candidates in the Central Daylight Time.
What You'll Be Writing About
Our websites are aimed at teaching people how and where to find the right stock photo agency for their purpose. There is still a myriad of topics out there that we're going to cover: industry-specific images (retail, gastronomy), experiences with agencies (Shutterstock etc.) and many more.
If you've written stock photo industry-focused content in the past, awesome! That's definitely not a deal breaker though. And: you are not alone, you will be guided by our Content Director, Ivanna.
This job is not going to be centred around creative writing. Instead, it's going to be centred around the Skyscraper Technique (creating longer, better content) for the keywords we choose.
Who we are:
We have the world's largest network of online magazines dedicated exclusively to the stock media market, in English and 5 other languages and we are growing. We cover all stock media types from all angles: buyers, authors, agencies, and more. And we want to expand into new topics!
If all this sounds appealing to you, please send us your application in English, detailing your salary expectations and time availability. Candidates may be asked to complete a phone interview or paid work sample as part of the screening process.
You got a background as graphic designer or similar? Even better. Its an angle to write about stock photography we would really like to cover.
If you have any questions at all, just ask!
