The Freelance Social Media Writer will be working with members of Healthline’s editorial team and social team who are focused on wellness content and lifestyle content around specific conditions. You’ll partner with us to create social assets — including videos — that promote articles and campaigns covering a range of topics, including nutrition, fitness, alternative remedies, stress management, skin care, sexual health, body positivity, anti-aging, and relationships.
About the Role:
This could turn into a full time position but, for now, you’d work as a remote freelancer concepting and writing — primarily — for two projects:
– The first is creating social media video scripts based on existing Healthline wellness articles. We’re looking to increase reach and engagement on Facebook and Instagram so you’ll need to have a great sense for how to tell a great story in under a minute on those platforms. Videos will be about nutrition, skin care, mindfulness, and other topics related to women’s wellbeing. You’ll work closely with a designer and video editor to efficiently produce distinctive, great-looking, extremely engaging little videos. Fun!
– The second project is contributing to a social-first campaign focused on self-care for millennial women. You’ll be writing captivating posts that compel women to engage with our content. You’ll write posts highlighting our contributing influencers, short videos repurposed from articles, and other elements needed to add dimension and personality to this campaign. Very fun!
What You’ll Do and How You’ll Make an Impact
In short, you’ll be working with us to fulfill our vision for a stronger, healthier world. You’ll work remotely creating sparkling, on-brand copy that builds the Healthline brand and encourages women in their pursuit of health and wellbeing. You’ll submit all drafts and revisions on time and be available to work with the team through zoom video conferences or calls.
