Content Marketing Specialist at ActiveCampaign

| Chicago
!Sorry, this job was removed at 6:55 p.m. (CST) on Monday, April 1, 2019
ActiveCampaign is a marketing automation, email, and CRM platform built for growing businesses. As one of the fastest-growing tech companies in Chicago, we serve our 60,000+ users (mostly small businesses) by helping them make meaningful connections with their customers.
As a Content Marketing Specialist, you’ll create high-quality content and case studies for the ActiveCampaign blog, as well as contribute to keyword research and other content distribution.
The ideal candidate has outstanding writing skills, experience with business writing, and a desire to learn about content-focused SEO, measurement, and “conversion” copywriting.

What your day could consist of:

  • Writing long-form content and case studies to grow traffic to the ActiveCampaign blog
  • Creating content in a style and tone that appeals to a small business audience—and gives them the advice they need to grow their businesses
  • Learning about “conversion” copywriting and keyword research, then using that knowledge to improve your content and update previously published content
  • Working to repurpose content as lead magnets in multiple formats, contributing to top-of-funnel lead generation
  • Familiarizing yourself with the product, target audience, and competitor activities in the market
  • Seeing the impact of your work (by tracking content performance in Google Analytics and other tools)

What is needed:

  • 2–5 years of content marketing experience, preferably targeting a small business audience
  • Excellent writing skills are a must. You should be able to find the “big idea” of a story and tell it well
  • Familiarity with content marketing measurement tools (Google Analytics, Search Console)
  • Understanding of SEO fundamentals
  • Personal interest in email marketing, marketing and sales automation, and business growth

ActiveCampaign is an employee-first culture. We take care of our employees at work and outside of work. We'll share all the details later on but in summary: comprehensive health and welfare benefits including no premiums for employees, open vacation plan, generous 401(k) matching, free lunch and endless snacks and beverages, reimbursed commuting, education budgets, ongoing learning and development, a proactive approach to diversity and inclusion, career pathing and lots of swag.
