Description

Calling all writers and journalism/communications/PR majors:

A new marketing agency is in need of several copywriters to create kick-a** marketing and sales collateral for the agency/brand and for new clients.

If you really want to find out what writing for marketing agencies and small to mid-sized businesses is like- and are tired of academic writing or corporate-ease, this is the internship for you!

You will be given the opportunity to write several types of content including:
- blog articles
- print articles
- social media updates/posts
- press releases
- email newsletters
- sales letters
- direct mail pieces
- e-books and guides
- whitepapers

You get to choose which types of content you want to produce- and you get my help with editing and creating the editorial calendar. Use whatever content you produce for the agency in your portfolio.

Plus, you can do this job from anywhere you have a computer and internet access. Work from home in your PJs in the middle of the night if you want. I don't care. All I want is quality writing. I don't even care if you do another internship at the same time. I just need quality work from you on a timely basis and I'm willing to work with your schedule.

This is an unpaid position but college credit can be given if arranged through your college or university. After successful completion of the internship a recommendation letter from the CEO will be given to the intern for inclusion in their job hunt. The successful intern is also free to use whatever he or she produces in his or her writing portfolio. Oh, and you'll probably have some fun along the way!

If you have the following skills and qualities (or at least 80% of them with a sincere desire to learn) apply now. I'm looking to fill between 6 and 10 positions ASAP!

Responsibilities

Job Duties:
- Writing blog articles for agency and clients
- Writing emails for use in marketing campaigns (newsletters, lead generation, lead nurturing)
- Writing content such as e-books, guides, white papers, and checklists for lead generation purposes
- Research client industries and issues to develop new blog articles and content
- Some keyword research
- Writing sales copy for letters, email, and websites
- Writing informational/educational copy for company websites

Requirements

Applicants should have these skills, abilities, and qualities
- **Excellent written communication skills is a MUST have
- Strong attention to detail
- Capable of researching to find new content ideas
- *Able to grasp a variety of industries quickly and find content opportunities
- Knowledge of Microsoft Word or Google Docs. Knowledge of gmail and Google apps a plus
- Able to use keyword research tools or learn quickly
- **Ability to write clearly in non-corporate speak. Need to use the language of small businesses and their prospects and explain complex things, simply and succinctly.
- Also need the ability to write persuasively (when called for) without being salesy, pushy, spammy or in a manner that wreaks of hyperbole. Don't make the readers think it's "too good to be true" or that it is some sort of internet scam.
- *A good sense of humor
Those little asterisks (*) mean those qualifications are extra important- just in case you didn't know. :)
