What You’ll Do
Can you write headlines and social copy that instantly grab attention online? Can you manage tens of social channels, optimizing content for each platform to build true communities? Do you obsess over data and analytics, using them to consistently drive strategy?

Managing social accounts for a digital publisher or brand
Promoting content effectively, creatively and appropriately online
Collecting insights on content performance to improve strategies
Upholding client relationships and preparing external-facing documents
Operating under strict deadlines
What You’ll Need
Proven experience writing editorially-driven copy that captures complex, nuanced ideas with a focus on headlines, meta descriptions, and small titles.
Proven experience writing social media copy for YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn that balances editorial standards and clickiness with a focus on headlines, share text, and captions.
