Content Strategist (Freelance/Contractor)

We often partner with content strategists on website projects.

As a Content Strategist you would:

  • Be a member of the discovery team – along with a designer (can you do that too?), technical lead, and project manager – during the discovery phase of a project.
  • Guide a client through a discovery process to clarify users, goals and guidelines for content editing and creation.
  • Create deliverables to support your content strategy – including sitemaps, content hierarchies, wireframes and guidelines for content creators.
  • Participate in internal reviews where you receive feedback from the other members of the discovery team about how your deliverables impact their areas of expertise.
  • Incorporate feedback from the team and the clients to revise the deliverables.
  • During the build phase of a project, review the website and give comments about the content.

You must have these qualities:

  • Superior communication skills (especially written) with an ability to translate abstract concepts for clients.
  • Attention to detail. Please start your cover letter/pitch with “Dear Advoteam,” when applying.
  • Strong self-management skills with the ability to organize and manage multiple priorities.
  • Located in a timezone shared with the continental United States.
  • Willingness to make compromises to improve the overall success of the project.
  • The ability to create/revise deliverables quickly.

 

  • A strong portfolio.  But this is secondary to the above qualities.

It would be great if you had a few of these qualities, too:

  • Past work in a client service agency or building tools for mission-driven organizations.
  • Experience working on a distributed team.
  • An excellent sense of humor.
