Associate Content Strategist in Local SEO Guide

Job Published on: October 19th, 2020

Available to applicants based in: North america

This job would be great for anyone who has an interest in helping grow the content department of an SEO agency, and learning how to improve editorial + SEO research processes.

Maybe you’re a journalist, editor, or content writer, and you want to apply your skills to driving clients’ organic search traffic. Or maybe you’re an SEO who wants to grow into a content role.

You’ll work closely with our Director of Content to align SEO recommendations and final copy with our clients’ needs. Our current client industries include B2B SaaS, media/publishing, eCommerce/retail, automotive, lead generation/marketing, and more.

The Associate Content Strategist would be responsible for the following:

  • Conduct keyword research, and identify ways to use that research to improve clients’ websites
  • Research and write content briefs that clients and freelance writers will use to produce writing
  • Manage editorial calendars using software like Google Sheets, Notion, or Asana
  • Edit short- and long-form writing for grammar, accuracy, clarity, punctuation, readability, length, and structure
  • Manage editorial workflows and reporting for multiple clients (i.e. keeping revisions and other milestones moving, updating URL tracking and status)
  • Contribute to developing editorial strategies that align with client goals
  • Occasionally assist Director of Content in communicating with clients (or client-facing internal account managers)

This Job Is For You If You Have:

  • A basic understanding of SEO best practices
  • Excellent copywriting, editing and communication skills
  • Experience applying editorial style guidelines (from AP to brands’ in-house styles)
  • Confidence in your editorial judgment — you can communicate why changes should be made, not just fix errors or tweak copy
  • Experience pitching ideas + creating outlines and content briefs
  • How to identify the thought leaders, authorities, and top content in a range of industries, especially B2B/SaaS, technology and e-commerce
  • Understanding of HTML + Schema (you don’t need to be a developer, but know how to use headings to structure content)
  • A knack for troubleshooting and finding solutions for content strategies
  • Comfort with spreadsheets and basic filtering/data manipulation (Google Sheets/Excel)

Things that would wow us:

  • Prior experience as an SEO analyst, strategist, writer or editor
  • A background in journalism, writing, editing, or digital content management

Location:

We are a virtual company but prefer employees who can overlap with the rest of the team ~6 hours a day.

Salary/Benefits:

  • Salary range $50,000-$55,000 DOE
  • LSG pays 100% of your health insurance premiums + up to $1,000/year in non-reimbursed healthcare expenses
  • 2 weeks paid vacation + last week of the year off + all federal holidays (~4 weeks of vacation!)
  • Paid travel 2x/year to our LSG “retreats” (we all get together in a fun city when that kind of things is acceptable again)
  • $1,000 home office allowance
  • 10% commissions on any business you bring in if you are into making it rain
  • Participation in company profit sharing program after 1 year
  • Matching donations to your favorite charities
