SEO BLOG WRITER
Our team is looking for a part-time blog writer for a fully remote position. Apply if you are an efficient and proficient writer looking to learn new skills.
Our company, Functional Medicine Marketing, works with niche practices across the country that prioritize preventive, holistic, and root-cause health. Blogs cover a variety of topics, including general wellness tips, thyroid health, preventive screenings, nutrition, etc.
This position offers flexible scheduling. Articles are assigned a month in advance and are due on the 15th of each month, which is a great opportunity for individuals who like non-traditional work hours and can manage their own calendars.
Starting pay is $25 per article.
Our writers begin with four or five articles a month, with the opportunity to increase that number depending on your bandwidth and company needs.
Our ideal candidate will be able to:
- Submit articles on time
- Proofread articles for grammatical accuracy
- Make updates to our Monday.com workflow
- Work remotely without much direct supervision
- Ask for clarification and direction as needed
- General knowledge of SEO best practices
- Work or academic experience in a health-related field
- Monday.com or a similar workflow platform
- Google Docs
- Chat GPT
The writing sample is the most important part of the application. We are able to train new writers in most of these areas, but let us know if your experience aligns with these qualifications.
How to get started
- Application and Portfolio: Email TJ Neathery with a cover letter and relevant portfolio work. Try selecting a writing sample that reads like a general interest blog post, not a 5,000-word academic article. No matter what you send, we’re looking for a clear, direct writing style.
- Trial Article: If our team decides to move forward, we will set up a trial article to see if the position is a good fit for both of us. This article will be paid.
- Set Up Monthly Content: After the trial article, we will set you up with regular monthly article assignments – typically four or five to start.
Given the changing landscape of marketing, we recommend that writers make use of Chat GPT to facilitate the writing process and structure articles. Pay is per article, not time, so efficiency is key. The ideal balance is 75% Chat GPT and 25% editing by the author. The author is responsible for structuring prompts in interesting ways, personalizing articles for the client, removing “AI-isms” by making language sound natural, and incorporating the SEO keyword throughout.
Our management team uses AI every day, and we know what AI sounds like. We will ask for rewrites if it’s clear the content has been copy-and-pasted with no editing.
We provide all keywords and topics.
Our blog posts follow the following guidelines and SEO best practices:
- 900-1100 words
- Use the keyword about 7-9 times
- Format the article using H1 – H3 headers
- Include external and internal links to helpful sources
- Add a call to action at the end of the article, asking people to learn more, schedule a call, etc.
