Content Marketing Editor (Freelance)

  • Content Marketing
  • Contract
  • Remote
  • 55 - 65 USD an hour

Posted on August 21, 2023

Grizzle is a content marketing agency that helps enterprise B2B and SaaS companies create and distribute authoritative, actionable, and value-driven content. Our clients include Semrush, Pipedrive, Tide, CXL, and, to name a few. Our goal is to help them surpass their revenue, traffic, and brand awareness goals using a proven content marketing methodology.

About the role:

We’re looking for talented freelance content marketing editors (CMEs) to work with us on an ongoing basis.

The role is part content manager and part editorial director.

You’ll be reviewing briefs, conducting developmental and copy edits, managing projects and editorial calendars, and helping us deliver an exceptional experience to clients by developing and updating content guidelines.

We’ll provide you with an interesting book of clients, a process to empower you to edit at the top of your game, and ongoing support from our editorial team.

Benefits of working with us:

Over the last 7 years, we’ve built effective content marketing playbooks that help our clients surpass their growth goals. Our content ranks and performs in highly competitive markets, and we’re proud of helping our clients grow.

However, we’re not a content farm. We take the time to create high-quality content that’s full of unique insights and value-adds. We don’t replicate what’s already out there. Every piece of content must have a purpose. We haven't done our job properly if an audience doesn’t feel empowered by what they read.

If our mission aligns with your values, here are a few other benefits of joining our team:

  • Long-term and reliable freelance retainer

  • Learn about content marketing, SEO, and digital PR

  • Work on industry-leading and interesting SaaS accounts

  • Collaborate with talented content marketers and editors

  • Improve your own marketing skills

  • Access to our internal content and marketing courses

What you’ll be doing:

Our CMEs’ core mission is to ensure content is “the best piece on a given topic” and that clients experience an exceptional, white-glove service.

You must have a keen eye for missed opportunities and value-adds, moments where explanations can go deeper and, most importantly, to execute them.

It’ll be your job to dissect content on both a micro and macro level. Content must align with our client’s needs, follow their guidelines, speak to their target audiences, deliver value to keep readers hooked, and follow on-page SEO best practices.

Our writers are given everything they need to research and write content that is full of detailed examples, actionable insights, and paragraphs that drive points home. As a CME, you’ll be sense-checking and levelling content from 70% to 90% and beyond.

Specifically, you’ll be:

  • Conducting developmental edits at the brief and draft stages for blog posts, landing pages, email copy, and more

  • Coaching writers through detailed feedback by marking up Google Docs and sharing Loom recordings (show, don’t tell)

  • Producing client content guidelines and amending them based on feedback

  • Contributing to the writer recruitment and onboarding process

  • Managing editorial calendars and scheduling projects

  • Copyediting content to perfection (proofreading, auditing sources, on-page SEO, etc.)

Once hired, you’ll be given access to our internal training that explains exactly how to do everything outlined above—chock full of examples and lessons.

We’re looking for CMEs who:

  • Have excellent attention to detail

  • Can think strategically and critically

  • Feel fulfilled by guiding writers and helping them grow

  • Love polishing content to perfection

  • Can write in a clear, concise manner

  • Understand on-page SEO

  • Recognize what separates value-driven content from the crowd

  • Are extremely well organized and can work to deadlines

  • Can communicate in a consistent and reliable manner

You’ll work closely with and learn from a sophisticated content marketing methodology. If you want to improve your marketing skills, you’ll see how we create great content and rub shoulders with some known names in the industry.
