The Content Factory is a growing content, PR, and social media marketing firm in need of a PR Assistant to help us meet the needs of our expanding list of clients. We’re a virtual agency with no physical offices, and this position requires that you work from home (or wherever there’s wifi).
To find out more about our company culture and why we all work remotely, check out this post by Kari DePhillips, TCF’s CEO.
This position will start out as freelance (1099-contract) and has the potential to move to a full-time employment opportunity.
Specifically, we’re looking for a team player who is highly trainable, agile, and fun to work with.
If hired, you’ll join a team of 7 people spread out over multiple states and countries – all working together to create killer case studies for some cool companies.
You’ll also be working for a CEO who “takes job perks to the max,” according to NBCNews. Our clients range from billion-dollar brands to bleeding-edge cryptocurrency companies, with a lot in between.
You will not be bored here.
What You’ll Do
- Identify PR opportunities and media influencers using platforms we’ll train you on (such as HARO, Qwoted, Meltwater, Substack, and BuzzSumo)
- Help pitch clients to major media outlets (great for building your connections, resume, and reputation as well)
- Monitor the web for media mentions of TCF clients
- Update client-facing spreadsheets with media placement data
- General content marketing research and special projects as needed
- The core of our team is on EST, though we have employees on CST, PST, and Kari is based in Amsterdam (+6 EST).
We’re a digital nomad-friendly company, and we don’t care where you’re based as long as you get your work in on time and can take conference calls as needed.
You’re going to learn a lot working here, and hopefully, we can learn a thing or two from you as well. We have a very particular way of going about things, but we have step-by-step guides for it all and we can train the right candidate to do just about anything.
If all goes well, there’s also the opportunity to advance at the company depending on your desire, knowledge, and expertise.
Most of the people on the team have been here for years, and we have a very low turnover rate. Ideally, we’ll be working together for a long time.
What We’re Looking For
This is a detail-oriented position, and the candidate needs to be a detail-oriented person – around here, we all are. Writing compelling emails and conveying a positive attitude through your email content is a must.
Familiarity with the Google Workspace and Slack is a plus, though these tools as well as the various subscription tools that we use will be part of your paid training.
Pay and How to Apply
To apply, please email Aubrie@contentfac.com a cover letter detailing your experience and highlighting some of the work you’ve done (or been a part of). Also, tell us honestly why you want the job and think you’d be a good fit.
We’re much more interested in a compelling cover letter than an extensive resume, so keep that in mind while you’re writing it. If you have social media marketing experience, be sure to call that out including links to actual posts you’ve created or social accounts you are currently managing.
Pay starts at $16/hr, based on experience. Ideally looking for 15+ hours per week.
