We’re hiring a Content Marketing Manager (with a twist)

Hi all, this post is an ad for an upcoming opportunity at WP Curve. This isn’t your typical job ad, so if you are entrepreneurial and interested in working with Alex and I to build WP Curve and your own business, then read on.

Who is WP Curve?

WP Curve is the fastest growing dedicated WordPress support provider in the world. We’ve gone from scratch to a team of 19 staff, 500 customers and $35,000 / month in just over a year.

We’ve built up a business through our honest and obsessive content marketing.

What is the opportunity?

We are looking for a Content Marketing person, under an contract work-style arrangement for at least 3 months.

We are also passionate about helping other entrepreneurs, so we’re looking to find someone who is keen on starting their own business. We will help you get started and after 3 months you can have the option to leave and run with your business.

We’d like someone to understand our audience, and take our content to the next level.

The opportunity will suit someone who wants time with us in order to build their own business. It’s a bit experimental for us, but we think this will be a great outcome for WP Curve, and for the right candidate.

We heard about the idea of doing this through Dan Andrews, and have also seen it work well for Justin and Joe from Empire Flippers and Travis from Supremacy SEO.

Here’s a quote from Elisa Doucette who has just launched her business after working with Dan.

elisa“When I pitched a content marketing and editorial position to Dan and Ian at Tropical MBA, I had big visions for the potential in their company. Working with them to see that potential change from vision to reality is easily one of the most fulfilling experiences of my career and business. There’s nothing like being a part of something special.”

The main difference here is you won’t come out and work with us on location, unless you choose to. More on that below.

Where will I be based?

You can work from wherever you like. This is not an office job.

Cheesy lifestyle business shot. This is me in the Philippines working on my last business.

Unfortunately Alex and I live in very expensive places (Gold Coast, Australia and San Francisco) where that wage would barely cover rent and noodles.

We have a network of entrepreneurs around the world, particularly in major low cost entrepreneurial hubs, we can connect you with.

Or if you want to stay where you are, that’s cool. Alex and I have actually never met face to face and with our internal systems that still works quite well.

You won’t have to be on call all the time, but you’ll be expected to be online enough to be part of the team. The hours are flexible, as our business runs 24 / 7, however we’d expect you to put in about 40 hours a week and meet certain deliverables.

How much will I get paid?

We will pay you $2,000 / month USD. Plus you’ll get:

  • Access to our team to work on your own business.
  • Access to our network to help build your own business.
  • Unlimited access to Dan and Alex for advice and help.

What will I have to deliver?

As the Content Marketer for WP Curve, you will essentially take over Dan’s job at managing WP Curve’s content. This will include:

  • Creating content yourself for our blog around the topics of entrepreneurship, startups, online marketing and WordPress.
  • Either do the podcasts yourself (if you are comfortable), or organize guests for Dan and Alex to interview.
  • Producing and uploading the podcast.
  • Build on our 1 person contributor team and manage the guest writing process (organising, helping with ideas, editing and reviewing etc).
  • Edit the content produced by Dan and Alex (Dan doesn’t know how to spelll).
  • Draft our weekly email out to our 12,000+ subscribers.
  • Working with our team member Ness on content promotion.
  • Contribute to bigger pieces of content like email auto responders, ebooks, downloads and infographics.

We are flexible about how we deliver our content. If you are keen on graphics we can do infographics, if you are a keen writer we can do more written posts. If you like to talk, you can do more podcasts.

We’ve found our best content is long written content, often more personal entrepreneurial stories like our monthly reports or in depth actionable marketing guides.

How do I apply?

Email dan@wpcurve.com with a brief background on who you are, and why you think you are suitable. We will not reply to every person who emails in however if we think you are potentially a good fit, we will offer you a paid trial to do a piece of content for the WP Curve blog.

Please do this by the closing date of next Friday 5 September.

If you have any questions please let us know in the comments or email Dan at dan@wpcurve.com.
