As a Writer for the OptinMonster brand at Awesome Motive, you’re responsible for growing our organic traffic and converting website visitors into email subscribers and customers by creating high-quality articles for the OptinMonster and TrustPulse blogs.

To love this role, here’s the type of person you are:

  • You have the ability to research and understand marketing concepts, then explain them in simple terms.
  • You’re comfortable with accepting critical feedback without taking it personally.
  • You’re a self-starter who loves taking the initiative to solve problems and learn new skills, and are comfortable working with minimal direction.
  • You take pride in the quality and craftsmanship of your work rather than just doing it to get it done.
  • You’re an excellent communicator who makes sure nothing slips through the cracks.
  • You’re passionate about leaving your mark on the web for all to see.
  • You enjoy helping others on your team succeed.

Common responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  • Creating your own featured images and screenshots for each blog post.
  • Making requested edits without expressing frustration or irritation with the editorial process.
  • Conducting keyword research to identify target keywords and using those keywords to plan, structure, and optimize your content.
  • Creating content for OptinMonster University to educate customers in various aspects of digital marketing.

Experience

  • WordPress Experience: You’re comfortable with writing and formatting posts and pages.
  • Writing and Editing: You can write a well-structured article with impeccable grammar and spelling in a conversational tone. You can edit and proofread your own work to eliminate careless errors instead of relying on an editor to fix them for you.
  • Image Editing: You can efficiently take screenshots; resize and crop images; add text, borders, or other elements; compress images; and upload and format them in WordPress so that they are clear, useful, and look good.
  • Basic SEO: You understand what SEO is and why it’s important. You know how to research keyword volume and search intent and how to effectively use keywords in your content without keyword stuffing.
  • Basic HTML: You can use the text editor in WordPress to add link attributes and do basic formatting of lists, subheadings, etc. with HTML.
  • Time Management: You’re able to juggle multiple tasks and projects and prioritize your work effectively to meet all deadlines.
  • Previous freelance or remote work experience.

Bonus points if you also have:

  • Examples of high-ranking SEO content you’ve written.
  • Copywriting and/or email marketing experience with proven results.
  • Graphic design experience creating featured images, infographics, etc.

  • Competitive Salary.
  • Health insurance benefits for full-time U.S. employees.
  • Work from your home. We’re spread out all over the world—the United States, Canada, Ukraine, India, Pakistan, Singapore and more.

  • We happily provide or reimburse software you’ll need as well as books or courses that promote continued learning.
  • We give you the opportunity to solve challenging and meaningful problems that make a difference.

  • Ability to work with some of the best people in the business through frequent, if not daily, interactions.
  • And in case you were wondering: no politics, no b.s., and no jerks.
