What we're looking for:
Copy writing and proofing support with marketing focus, to:
-Refine and create converting copy for web pages
-Generate email copy for upcoming newsletter campaign
We would ask for written samples, and 1-2 short test cases (focus on copy writing style, word choice, content engagement)
What the process covers:
1.) Initially, we'd like to see the applicant's portfolio and sample work. Most relevant are:
-Samples of full web-page copy writing and content. Emphasis on product/marketing writing and structure (design and SEO are bonus, but not required). NOT looking for blog content or social media.
-Samples of email copy, emphasis on promotional, newsletter, and prospecting/outreach messages.
2.) We'd evaluate the sample work and proposal. From those applicants selected, we'd need to see a test case including:
Creating mock-up copy for one of our current web pages (primary)
Creating copy for one email, based on a newsletter campaign (secondary, may not need)
Willing to pay a nominal fee for those selected applicants to work on the test case . These should not require extensive research, and we'd provide all the context and content needed. Primarily, we are interested in your thought process, copy-writing style, ability to articulate our content, and responsiveness to feedback/communication.
2.) Would like to have test case turn around within 1 week. Our team would evaluate the work, and depending on results, discuss the website project.
3.) If a good match from the above, we'd be happy to schedule a $kype or video conversation to answer questions, discuss the project/task specifications and get your feedback.
Project timeline is to start with test case within 1-2 weeks. The project will be in the next month, and could carry on for 1-2 months. If good, we would love an ongoing partnership to work with you as our go-to copy-writer.
