Online copywriter/editor with a feel for marketing

Does writing come easy to you? Are you pleased when you have written an appealing text that convinces your target audience? Do you enjoy coordinating the production of visual content? We are looking for an online content copywriter/editor for our learning management system that can use their writing and project management skills to communicate our story and brand on our website. Keep calm and apply at Easy LMS!

Communication Owl What will you do as a copywriter/editor?

Your tasks will be broad, diverse, and dynamic. First, you will collaborate with the content manager on positioning Easy LMS and building our brand. You will be involved in all phases of content production, including conceptualization, creation, editing, and publishing. You will translate our content strategy into targeted content for several communication channels, from our website to LinkedIn.

Your main task: creating textual content

You will manage the content on Easy LMS’ website. English is our source language. Much of your writing capacity will go into our Knowledge Center, our lead generation channel with insightful background articles about e-learning and employee training. You will write content in short cycles to ensure a fast turnaround time and timeboxing. You will experiment with texts, measure the results, and iterate on them so that we can improve our information faster.

On top of this, you will be responsible for editing content to verify whether it matches our tone of voice, style, and brand guides.

Other tasks

We use visual content, like videos, animation, and illustrations, to market and clarify our product. You will take the lead in collecting new client testimonials, managing our YouTube channel, and distributing our animations. You will use your analytical skills to determine what other visual content we need to reach our target audience.

What will your responsibilities be?

A day in the life of a copywriter/editor

Let's assume you will be working from our office!

9:00 First, a cup of coffee and a look at your calendar. It's a full day 🙂.

9:15 You prepare for a meeting with the content manager and an implementation consultant. You are in the middle of a short content production cycle to update the solutions pages on the website.

9:30 Meeting time! You discuss your progress. How many pages are already (re)written? How many do we need? Which ones can be reviewed by you? Do we need input from a specialist?

9:45 Time to focus. You turn off Slack and close your email inbox to write for two hours in absolute silence.

11:00 Aaargh, you are stuck and need extra information from an implementation consultant. You open Slack and ask if the dedicated consultant is available for a quick Q&A. A positive reaction, yes! You start an online meeting to get your questions answered.

11:30 You have enough information to finish your text. Your creativity and writing spirit keep flowing!

12:00 You access the online content board that gives an overview of the current status of (re)written content. Four texts need a final edit. You start with the top one!

12:30 Lunchtime! We serve an extensive bread lunch with boiled eggs, local cheeses, and biological spreads.

13:00 You have a meeting with the videographer to update them about the next client story.

14:00 You continue writing content. You call dibs on the final text that needs to be written. You start with an outline and request your colleague's feedback.

14:15 While waiting for the feedback, you start collecting information on the topic.

14:30 Your outline has been approved! You are ready to write!

16:30 You are out of inspiration. So, time to put your text aside and upload the new pricing page you wrote a few days ago. You proudly tell your colleagues and you also notify the translators, when it’s online.

17:00 You see a minor bug on the website. You log the bug and ensure it reaches the development teams.

17:15 You end the day by providing feedback on three illustrations for our blog.
