Can you write badass creative content that makes a reader feel like they've been thrust into a melding of John Wick and the Walking Dead at the same time?
Do you know which way to point a handgun... believe in 2nd Amendment gun rights... and already have a but-out bag ready and waiting to get out of Dodge when a disaster strikes?
Can work fast and tap into reader emotions to compel them to get off their arse and take action?
If you answered, "yes, yes, and... um... yes!", then we may have some exciting, rewarding work for you with writing books, emails, autoresponders, and blog content for our online publishing company.
Projects typically start with either a "concept" or an interview transcription on a specific topic that then needs to be "blended and edited" to have a smooth, readable flow that takes the reader on a journey and gives them nice, juicy content.
Final EMAIL/AUTORESPONDER creatives will be about 450 words long and written in a way that provides valuable tips but also takes advantage of direct response writing techniques that leads readers to take action on purchasing one of our products or signing up for one of our free reports.
Some projects may include creation of an EBOOK product that will be about 100 - 150 pages of about 1,500 - 2,000 words. (Single sentence paragraphs; 12 pt. space after each)
The perfect candidate will...
1. "Walk the talk" and have a general interest and (preferably) working knowledge of firearms training, self-defense, and survival tactics. (Military experience definitely a plus!)
2. Be able to write in a way that makes the work ENJOYABLE to read (vs. a dry, "technical manual"). Humor, sarcasm, and "open loops" in your writing are very, very welcome. (Hint: If you don't know what an "open loop" is... you're NOT right for the job.)
3. Be able to take a direct transcript and "boost it up" in length using personal experience and creative writing techniques to communicate the same information (but not in a fluffy, worthless way) I've attached a document with more notes and an example of this.
4. FULLY UNDERSTAND DIRECT MARKETING RESPONSE COPYWRITING! We have amazing products but I can't help people protect themselves and their family if they don't actually buy our stuff. Your writing needs to use proven persuasive tactics to move them toward "the sale". Your work will LITERALLY save lives!
We email our subscribers every day and can produce about 4 books each month so we need about 2-3 new writers for long term project work.
Don't bother responding without giving AT LEAST 3 EXAMPLES OF YOUR WORK that you think fits our needs. I read every piece of content created before it goes out and I don't want to do a lot of heavy editing.
I've included 4 email examples from our end as well as more details (and examples) for how we format our email writing.
