I am creating a new lifestyle blog (on Wordpress) & am looking for someone with experience developing similar blogs (ie; any experience with brands that skew towards women - ie; design, interiors, home, books, travel, etc. would be great) to help me with technical and design aspects of getting this blog established. I feel confident in the substance of my blog but need help in optimizing/editing visuals (VSCO expertise & knowledge of other editing tools is essential), as well as marketing-related issues I'll need to think about (tagging content, SEO, etc).
I am envisioning working with someone in the U.S., but virtual is def ok....approx 2-4 hrs (tbd, flexible) per week, with them advising me on how to upload new posts, maybe creating a blog roll with links to other sites, offering suggestions on ways to make the blog more visually appealing overall. The right candidate will have studio art experience or great flair for graphics & design and an affinity for clean, modern, pretty look of brands such as Lonny magazine (online), Serena & Lily, Tory Burch/tory daily, Assouline coffee table books, Coveteur, The Glossier online beauty site, etc. In addition, the right candidate will have a cheerful, friendly & patient demeanor to encourage me in this process of learning something new!
I have 20 years experience in marketing & am passionate about my work -- I have my own brand strategy consulting firm, and am lucky enough to work with Fortune 50 CEO's, well-known people from Wall Street to Hollywood, & wildly creative people all over the world. I believe you need to have fun in your work and I am looking for a Social Media Guru who embraces this same spirit of drive/discipline & fun/creativity. My blog is an extension of this work & needs to be really well done.
If this sounds of interest to you, I'd love to SEE examples of work you've done for brands such as the ones i mentioned above --OR why you're obsessed with that aesthetic & can help me channel it in my blog. Also, pls help me understand what experience you've had in the nitty-gritty aspects of blog management as well. I realize this sounds like a juggle between Design & Tech stuff but if you can cover both, that's ideal!
