What are you waiting for?
Your content will support marketing strategies that deliver highly-targeted and well-defined marketing and sales leads for our clients.
You will be working with our marketing team across a wide variety of content-driven initiatives. This includes crafting compelling website copy, blog articles, email newsletters, social media posts, digital ads, print material, and — well — anything that uses words to deliver a message and convert a lead.
You should have strong written and verbal communication skills as well as the ability to follow instructions that include details like word count, persona targeting, and much more.
You will collaborate with other members of our team on projects, so you must play well with others and be willing to follow advice and lead others.
We use tools to make our job easier, faster, and maintain quality. If you have experience in those tools — fantastic. If you don't, we'll train you. These include (but are not limited to) WordPress, HubSpot, Google Docs, MailChimp, Contant Contact, Social Media Platforms, Slack, Grammarly, and ClickUp.
You must be able to write content that is grammatically accurate and meets our clients guidelines for tone, voice, and industry terminology.
Our clients expect us to meet an agreed-upon publishing schedule. This means that we need the content from you by the due dates outlined. If you are even in danger of missing a deadline, you are responsible for communicating that with your team.
Depending on your skill level, you may also be asked to publish or schedule content on social media channels, websites, email marketing software, or other marketing channels. You will be trained on our processes before you take on this responsibility.
We don't maintain a physical office space and instead we allow our employees to work remotely. You will mostly be able to set your own schedule. There will be regular meetings with other members of your team and potentially with clients that you will be expected to attend, but otherwise, the driving force is high-quality work delivered on time, not a time clock.
You absolutely must be a self-motivated person that enjoys their job and wants to learn more. Our industry is fast-paced, and our clients might be moving even faster.
You must be DRIVEN to succeed.
You will be encouraged and expected to stay on top of trends in your field.
This will vary based on your skill level. We hire content writers primarily on a 1099 contractor basis and your workload my vary based on our needs and your availability. We do have staff positions for more versatile writers that excel across a wider variety of subjects/clients or that show excellent management skills.
As a 1099 contractor, you will have the ability to set your own availability and schedule. If you are hired for a staff position, you will quality for all employee perks and benefits.
At Sparkitive, Experience and Motivation are essential. A degree is nice, but we want to know that you can do this job and that you'll love waking up each day to do it. We can train technical ability, but you must come with passion.
99% of our clients are in the professional services industry. They may have customers in the commercial or residential space, but most are commercial. This includes companies in the healthcare, industrial, and construction industries.
In most cases, you will have assignments weeks in advance. There are rare cases where you might need to turn around an assignment or revision request within a day or two, but those are rare and we'll communicate ahead of time to ensure that you're available.
Most of the time you will not work with clients directly. You'll be provided a technical brief and any additional information that you need. However, there are times where it makes sense to have you work with the client closer to avoid miscommunications and delays.
