**GREATER SEATTLE AREA CANDIDATES ONLY** You have the attributes of a journalist, always wanting to find the best story, uncover all the facts, identify the people with knowledge, interview them, and ultimately build a story that engages our audience.
Our client is on the hunt for Content Marketing Writers! This contract will be 3+ months - on-site or off-site!
Our client is looking for a creative SEO Content Writer who knows how to find that awesome idea, do some research and interviews to collect all the angles, write it out in engaging, personal, story-telling style, and work with our design pros to add the right visuals and bring the whole thing to life.
You have a solid, experienced-based understanding of what it takes to engage people with compelling content.
You know enough about SEO to weave in the words and phrases that make your stories discoverable.
You love digging into trends, researching backgrounds and data, getting an understanding of where our market is moving, and writing about it with a distinct, cogent point-of-view.
You’re comfortable in the technical realm, able to delve into the complex but boil it up to the salient points that everyone can understand.
You look to use more than just one channel to distribute your content; in fact, you like to think about social media, about forums where our audience may hang out, and about new venues to deliver content.
You’re not one to just sit in a dark room and write all day, but one to be out talking with others, finding the best story.
You have some great examples that show concise, compelling content for marketing purposes including newsletters, web pages, blog posts, webinars, whitepapers, email campaigns, and presentations.
You don’t mind taking someone else’s attempt at writing and editing it into something beautiful.
