Benefits of working with us:

We’ve created a killer content marketing methodology that helps our client’s get thousands of visitors to their blog every month.

Our content often ranks on page one in highly competitive markets and we’re proud of helping our clients grow.

But we’re not a content farm. We take the time to create high-quality content that’s full of unique insights and value-adds. We’re not trying to replicate what’s already out there—anyone can do that. Every piece of content must have a purpose and we take a demand generation approach to every article we produce. If an audience doesn’t feel empowered, we haven’t done our job.

More specifically, you will:

  • Research topics and uncover audience pain points and effective solutions

  • Collect supporting imagery to illustrate your content (screenshots, graphs, etc.)
  • Cite relevant original sources when necessary and avoiding linking to competitor content
  • Follow client guidelines to match desired voice, tone, structure, preferences and more
  • Collaborate with the Grizzle team on each project via Asana

Projects you'll be working on:

  • Blog Articles: Long-form content with the aim to drive traffic, educate readers, and convert them into leads, users, and customers.
  • Content Refreshing: Breathing new life into existing content with new sections, examples, and adding new nuggets of value.
  • Landing Pages: SEO-driven product pages containing editorial-style content.
  • Email Marketing: Newsletters and copy for automated journeys.

We’re looking for a content writer who:

  • Loves creating actionable, in-depth content on a range of topics

  • Can write in a clear, concise manner
  • Understands on-page SEO and what makes educational and value-driven content

You’ll work closely with and learn from a sophisticated content marketing methodology. If you’re looking to up your marketing game, you’ll get to see how we create great content and rub shoulders with some known names in the industry.

We pay our freelance writers $450 per article. This can increase after several months of working with us and for larger projects.
