Job Description

Wes Kao is looking for someone to help draft scripts that sound natural and conversational. Each script should be 2-2:20 minutes when read out loud. (Twitter has a 2:20 minute cut-off for videos.)

Do you have a good ear for natural-sounding video scripts?

Do you hate when people sound robotic on screen?

Do you notice when people use overly-academic words like "however" or "therefore" in scripts?

If so, you could be the person I'm looking for...

I have 100+ blog articles I would like to turn into short video scripts. These will be ~2 minute videos I'll record and post on LinkedIn/Twitter.

I’m looking for someone to help draft scripts that sound natural and conversational. Each script should be 2-2:20 minutes when read out loud. (Twitter has a 2:20 minute cut-off for videos.)

From a content development perspective, you would not need to do additional research. You would pull content from my published blog posts. Each blog post is a standalone unit, so it should have everything you need within it. Then turn each blog post into a 2-3 minute video script.

You can borrow heavily from the blog post to create the video scripts, so there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. You would focus on turning the article text into a script that:

(a) fits the scope of up to 2:20 minutes when read out loud
(b) sounds conversational and off-the-cuff.

From a topic perspective, I write about marketing, leadership, getting buy-in, and building new products. Bonus points if you are interested in those areas.

Here are examples of videos I’ve created so far, so you can get a sense of the pacing, style, and execution.

PS We can do a flat fee per script if you prefer. That way, if the script you provide needs minimal editing, you're rewarded for your efficiency because you can move on to new scripts.
