About WP Curve

WP Curve is the fastest growing dedicated WordPress support provider in the world. We’ve gone from scratch to a team of 40 people, 1,000 customers and $75,000 / month in just over 2 years.

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

What are the opportunities?

We’re looking for 2 people to manage the WP Curve blog.

  • Content marketing manager
  • Content editor

We are passionate about helping entrepreneurs and and looking for someone who is looking to start their own business. Being an entrepreneur is also critical to understanding our audience.

  • Working with top performers – You’ll be constantly challenged and supported by Dan and Alex. You’ll have your limits pushed.
  • Connecting with brilliant minds – The WP Curve community is a diverse group of entrepreneurs who are happy to contribute and collaborate on content. I have made some amazing friends through my work on the blog.
  • Learn what goes into making great content – Content marketing is an incredibly valuable skill. You’ll learn first-hand what it takes to create content that gets attention and adds value.

This was the same offer I had and I’ll be moving on to work on my own business. I’ll be doing Facebook advertising and retargeting service. I’ll have more details up soon. But if this is something that you are looking for, let’s set up a call!

Where will you be based?

Our team is completely remote and you’ll be able to work from anywhere.

For the first few months, I recommend being based somewhere with a similar time zone to Australia and work similar hours to Dan so you can be brought up to speed quickly.

Dan and I will be in Bangkok this year for a conference called DCBKK in mid-October. We would love to meet you there and up to speed on our strategy and goals we have set up for you.

I will be based in Chiang Mai from October until early December. If you’re keen to move to Thailand for a few months, I can work with you and help you get started.

Content manager

The content manager will be responsible for the overall content strategy. Content is our #1 growth strategy so there is quite a lot here.

You’ll spend most of your time making sure we are getting the most value from our content efforts.

You won’t have a set schedule or hours, but you will have a challenging set of goals to meet each month that will keep you working full-time.

Key objectives:

  • Generate over 500 tweets each month from the content published
  • Grow our subscriber list by 5% each month

What you’ll be doing:

  • Manage WP Curve content marketing strategy and processes for content marketing and promotion.
  • Manage the blog editor and oversee their work.
  • Focus on email sequences and content upgrades to make sure we are getting the most from our website traffic.
  • Create a few pieces of original content for WP Curve blog each month.

  • Create and optimize landing pages, hub pages and opt-ins.

  • Connect with readers by responding to comments, social media and emails.

Desired attributes:

  • Entrepreneurial thinking – Your monthly goals are performance based and you will be responsible for hitting them each month. You’ll need to find ways that you can add value without being prompted. You’ll face new sets of challenges and setbacks each month and be given problems without clear solutions. You’ll need to have the confidence and competence to overcome these challenges.

  • Strong communication – Your written communication must be excellent. Most of the interaction with your team will be on Slack. You’ll need to be concise and direct in how you communicate to be successful. You will also be creating and editing documented processes, and your processes must be clear and easy to follow.
  • Mental toughness – You’ll need to function and thrive in an environment where you receive highly critical feedback and complex challenges.
  • Data driven – You’ll need to use data and analytics to see how our audience is engaging with content and use this information to meet your monthly goals.
  • Be a people person – You will be constantly reaching out to new people and businesses to collaborate on new projects and generate ideas for new content and be comfortable communicating with people you have not met before.
