Seeking Marketer and Writer for Paid Internship

24 Jul

Welp, when I last posted on this blog, I said I’d be writing here more often. Now’s when you can slap my virtual wrist, because it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted.

Luckily, there’s a great reason for the crickets: I’ve been super busy with new clients (ok, and sailing around the British Virgin Islands and hiking up Mt. Adams).

I’m writing now because I’d love to find a bright, independent intern to learn the new media marketing ropes and help me do more in a day. Please spread this post along to anyone you know who would be interested in the below job description.

The overview:

If you work with me, you’ll be helping to grow businesses and organizations with awesome social media and content marketing. Disclaimer: this will not be a traditional internship. The hours I can give you will vary week to week, and you can work from anywhere (I’m writing this from Seattle, but home base for me is Baltimore). While this kind of internship probably won’t count for course credit, I will pay you, you’ll have lots of freedom and independence, and you’ll learn a ton.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Performing research, lots of which will feel like cheating because it has to be done on Facebook and Twitter
  • Executing SEO tactics
  • Helping to keep track of client social media presences
  • Drafting content for social media and blogs (heads up, I’m a tough editor)
  • Coming up with bright ideas that I never could have thought of on my own
  • Catching typos
  • Loading and publishing blog posts and web content
  • Finding snarky images for blog posts
  • Assisting with email marketing campaigns
  • Diving into web analytics to help keep track of client progress

This post originally appeared on Marketing Trenches.

Content marketers should shiver with jealousy for Nightmares Fear Factory’s recent marketing success. If you missed this, basically, Nightmares Fear Factory is a haunted house in Niagara Falls Canada, and recently, their brilliant marketing strategy paid off big time when their Flickr feed was picked up by new and traditional media and sent around the web—I found out about it thanks to a friend who posted it on Google Buzz.

What’s the trick?
