Description

UnionPixel is a successful digital agency based in the New York City area. We've been serving the publishing industry for over 5 years.

This is internship is a great opportunity to be hone your research, writing and social media skills while learning how to grow a consulting practice. Our firm is developing an online course that will train consultants and solo entrepreneurs how to automate their sales process to quickly grow their business.

You will be writing blog posts and related Tweets and Linkedin posts that will be the foundation of our content marketing strategy to start building traffic to our site. This is extremely valuable experience to have in today's business, marketing and publishing worlds.

We want to launch our blog with ten 500 - 600 word high quality blog posts to be published over the next five weeks (2 articles per week). Accompanying each article should be 5 related tweets (140 characters) and 1 Linkedin post with quotes, stats or trends mentioned in the article. To help you get going we have created 10 blog article concepts that we think will resonate with the audience and will jumpstart your research and writing efforts.

This will be an ongoing internship with possibility of payment at some point in the future. After the initial content development we will need 1 - 2 posts per week.
