Content Manager

Position Overview

This position’s primary focus is to create stellar content in digital formats.
The Content Manager will create (research, write, and edit) blog content, social media content, and paid, training course content. The number one goal of this position is to turn our customers biggest challenges and obstacles into actionable solutions that will lead them to experience massive success.

We’re looking for a strong and diligent content creator who can jump in and make an immediate contribution to our team. The ideal candidate is someone willing to intelligently add value and insight in all the ways we deliver content.

This is a full-time, salaried position that reports directly to our boss babe, Amy Porterfield ;-) while also working closely with our Social Media Coordinator.

The position requires candidates to come into our office in Carlsbad, California. Hours for this position are 9am-5pm PST, Monday-Friday, but are somewhat flexible as this position is more about accomplishing certain tasks and objectives with a high level of responsiveness.

Occasionally, there is a need to work additional hours on evenings and weekends during a launch or other events which happen a few times per year.

  • Creating training material focused on online marketing strategies and frameworks for digital courses, webinars, and live workshops.
  • Producing complete and accurate research.
  • Summarizing content into detailed outlines.

  • Structuring content so it’s usable and incredibly actionable (step-by-step) to our audience.
  • Creating online marketing training content that is value-based, actionable, and engaging.
  • Creating visuals such as blueprints, infographics, and flowcharts (content focused, not design).
