Our new Content Strategist lives in the world of digital and social communications. They understand that their job is to create so much more than a message; instead, it’s about delivering an experience or a journey for a prospective customer that is engaging and motivates action. No matter the platform or medium, being a phenomenal writer and wordsmith is a must!
The candidate we hire will be known as Vitamin’s content king … or queen, as the case may be. It’s someone who knows from experience that the process of developing powerful, persuasive content begins long before you ever sit down and begin executing. Our new content expert will know that strategy comes first, and with it, a hefty list of questions to be answered up front. Who are we trying to talk to? What do they already know, and what do we want them to know? How do we want them to feel? What is it that we want them to do? What would motivate them to share our message with others? How does it tie in with their short and long term goals? And the list goes on …
