This is a fully-remote, part-time, contractor role, working an estimated 16 - 24hrs per week (potentially increasing over time).
What you’ll do
You’ll listen to a podcast episode, draw insights or takeaways from it, and produce 10-20 pieces of written content (some combination of short and long social posts, articles, etc).
We run a podcast called “Brands That Podcast”.
After each episode, we draw out dozens of takeaways and write them in articles, tweets and LinkedIn posts.
For example, if a guest says “the ROI of our podcast isn’t leads or sales. It’s the content you can produce from it that informs our entire content marketing strategy.”
We might turn that into:
- 3 tweets and 1 LinkedIn post - e.g. “Not sure what to write each week on social? Pull 20 insights from your latest episode and turn them into posts. Let your podcast set your social strategy.”
- 1 article - e.g. “The Real ROI of a Podcast”, a 1,000 word article for our blog.
The goal is to share quotes, opinions and thought leadership from each episode.
You’re probably a good fit if you...
Are intuitive: You have broad business knowledge and are able to pick out insights from a podcast episode without being an insider in the industry.
You’ll be working with podcasts from various industries. It could be a SaaS (software as a service) podcast, or a show about the safety industry.
Without knowing the industry, you’ll have to pick out highlight moments, great quotables or takeaways that you’ll turn into other written content.
A great writer and communicator: you can summarize things in 1 or 2 sentences in a way everyone can understand.
You can listen to someone tell you about their business, and then communicate what they do in a way anybody could understand. You can take a complicated idea and explain it to people like they’re five.
Think like a marketer: You’ll act like you’re the company’s marketing manager, pulling out insights their audience will love.
This job is simple, but challenging. You’ll listen to each episode, pull out key takeaways or insights, then re-word or summarize them like they’re coming from the brand.
You have the ability to pull the perfect quote or takeaway, and write it in a way that sounds like the company wrote it.
Are insightful and learn quickly: you can listen to someone talk for 5 minutes, pick out the important part, then re-word it in a way that’s short, clear and helpful
Have experience writing on social: You’ve written content for social media platforms before, and you might've done it for other brands.
Are a “manager of one”: You are very good at managing your time and hitting deadlines.
This role requires hitting weekly deadlines. So we’re looking for someone who manages their time well, clearly communicates with the team, and can stay ahead of schedule.
Bonus Points If You
- Can write long-form articles
- Have experience running social media for brands
- Have done this kind of thing before
