We are seeking content strategists to work with us on turning live interviews with our customers into high quality videos, articles, podcasts and social content.
Imagine having the ability to work from anywhere.
At Content Allies, our number one value is freedom.
You will have to work each day and put in time and hours, but you will have a significant amount of freedom when it comes to where and when you work.
What Content Allies is
Content Allies turns consultants into thought leaders through content marketing. Our strategists work directly with clients to build content plans, conduct capture calls, and coordinate with in-house writers, graphic designers, editors and videographers to produce video content, articles, podcast episodes, audiograms and social content.
So What Is the Content Strategist Role?
You will work directly with clients using well-documented procedures to onboard clients, learn about their content objectives, determine their individual tone, brand identity and publishing needs.
You will conduct 45-60 minute interviews (capture calls) with our customers and use the recordings to turn their expertise into multiple pieces of content. We use the Gary V model to repurpose 1 piece of core-content into multiple pieces of micro-content.
You will have support for writing, graphic design, sound and video editing.
We have systems, templates and step-by-step procedures that steamline the workload and make day-to-day tasks straight-forward and easy to action.
The tasks you will work through on a regular basis include:
- Onboarding new clients to learn about their expectations and unique needs.
- Creating Strategy Decks, Podcast Content Plans, Video Timestamps and Article Briefs for content creators.
- Preparing questions for interviews, conducting 45-60 minute capture calls.
- Communicating asynchronously with customers on strategy.
- Responding to prompts from project managers and VAs to review and ship deliverables.
- Handling feedback and revision communications with client.
- Coordinating with VAs to update client dashboards and publishing of content.
- Consistently learning, growing, and improving your skills to become a master of content strategy.
NOTE: Our customers will all be in B2B. So these will be businesses typically selling to other businesses. Most of our clients are management consultants with deep vertical expertise. This is not B2C marketing focused on consumers.
Growth Potential: Client accounts are assigned to strategists and remain with the same strategist. We have the ability to delegate accounts on a case-by-case basis allowing for a part-time start with the possibility to grow to a full-time role.
The Ideal Candidate
- Detail-oriented with an eagle eye for typos, formatting issues and small errors.
- A reliable self-starter who wants to be a part of a collaborative team but who also works well independently.
- Has experience with content strategy and/or content creation: videos, articles, podcasts, social content.
- Is organized, good at following directions, and adapts well to new procedures or changes as we scale up and grow.
- Is fun and easy to get along with.
- Fast learner and a lifelong learner.
- The actions we take create more freedom, not less for team members, clients & owners.
- Life > Work
- Lifelong learning
- Positive thinking

- Details matter
The full-time strategist role ranges from $3,500-$4,000/month (USD), based on experience. As we grow, these rates will rise (projections range from $5-8K/month). We value our team members and aim to compensate workloads and time commitments fairly.
How to Apply
NOTE*** This is quite an intense application process. This is by design as it weeds out all of the applicants who are not serious and just want to blast their resume to us.
While this application will take you time, you can be guaranteed that if you apply and follow instructions, your application will be viewed and considered.
1. Create a Google Doc for your application. Keep it well organized and easy to digest
2. Include the following
- URL of your LinkedIn profile
3. Write me a cover letter that sells me on why I should hire you for this position over anyone else. Remember to provide sharing access on all docs to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’.
4. RECORD AN APPLICATION VIDEO OR AUDIO MESSAGE
- Use your webcam or cell phone to record an application video or audio message.
- This video or audio message should be at maximum 60 seconds long (Not a second longer).
- As the first word of your video or audio message say “Moist” and as the last word of your message say “Toodaloo”.
- In the content of the video or audio, persuade me on why you are a good fit for this role.
- Upload this video or audio to Dropbox. If you do not have an account create a free one and upload the file there. Add the dropbox link as the very final item of your Google Doc after your cover letter and questions.
5. Complete a short work test and put these answers on your Google Doc
- Proofread this article.
- Make a copy of the document, ensure the document is set to ‘track changes’ and make your edits. Share your copy of the doc on one line of the cover letter, like this: “Here is the document I proofread.”
- Keep an eye out for typos, eliminate unnecessary/repetitive words, and change formatting where it differs from the norm (no need to re-word what is written, just proof for errors and inconsistencies).
- There is no perfect score for this test, instead we will review the editing choices you make and take into account whether obvious errors were noticed.
6. In your Google doc, please tell us why you think it’s valuable to be both a team member and an independent worker at the same time.
- Share any real world examples you may have been through previously or share a made up scenario that illustrates the benefit of bringing both qualities to this type of role.
7. Please provide a link to a 30 second or shorter Youtube video that makes you laugh…
The video below made us crack up.
8. Send an application to email@example.com
- The subject line should read “CA Content Strategist: YOUR NAME”
