Do you know the difference between a follow and a nofollow link?
Do you know how to find all backlinks to a competitor’s website?
Do you know how to be appropriately persuasive? Building relationships quickly that are a win-win for both parties?
Then we’re looking for you!
Connex Digital Marketing has experienced a ton of growth in the last 4 months and we're looking for a long term relationship with an individual who can build quality backlinks for our clients. The right candidate will be highly detail oriented, able to follow specific directions, and punctual.
The perfect candidate will be skilled in sales and outreach and have a firm grasp on the do’s and don’ts of getting a website mentioned by other websites in a way that Google and other search engines approve of.
Hey we don’t want link wheels, PBNs or other BS like that. We expect that you understand that sentence and appreciate it as much as we do!
Join our team while working from any location with a fun and creative NON-corporate culture. The qualified individual we’re looking for should be outgoing and great with outbound calls, emails, and social media outreach, while also being able to work will with management, VAs, copywriters, and developers. The link building specialist we’re looking for should be up-to-date with recent search engine changes, including (but not limited to) Google Penguin and Panda updates and practice search engine-approved methods for building brand awareness that provide results.
- Research people and websites
- Import and organize people and websites within Pitchbox and Buzzstream
- Perform and track outreach through social, email and telephone
- Daily and weekly progress reports outlining successes and opportunities
- Potentially communicate directly with clients.
Since this is an outreach position you must speak perfect English (American, British, or Australian accents are great, Indian English accents will not work with this position). You must also write perfect English.
You must also be creative in how to acquire links. We are using the Skyscraper Technique (google it) and have found a ton of success in selling the service, we however have not always found success in our outreach. We need that to be fixed immediately. And if you’re the person who fixes this, who brings in 10-20 quality links for the quality articles we’re producing.
We have 13 clients currently and you will jump into all clients right away. We expect to have 20 clients shortly. I expect you to be able to handle 20 clients without an issue.
Connex prides itself in rewarding hard work. We do not pay hourly, we do not offer vacation time, instead we agree that you will provide the above service for the price agreed upon. If you take more work off of the team (there are plenty of non linkbuilding outreach help needed). Or if you prove really successful at acquiring links and social media mentions you will see increases in your compensation.
This initial phase is for 4 weeks. If we don’t see major improvements in our link acquisition within 4 weeks we cannot continue. However if you prove yourself helpful/useful in those 4 weeks you’ll be brought into the team.
We’re highly motivated, and will hire the first person who impresses us. To impress us you must show us that you meet all these requirements and reach out to us as if you were trying to acquire a link from us (mention this job description) There are a few hints in this Job Description to help you find us.
Oh and you must apply to this position via Upwork, and you must start the application on Upwork with the following three words (they must be the FIRST words of the application) “Linkbuilding is like…” Applications that do not start with those three words will not be considered. Hey, we hate spam as much as you do! I took time to write this, and I expect real applicants to take time to apply.
Remember, get to my inbox, follow the directions listed above and you’ll get in. I’m really motivated, and I hope you are too!
