Freelance English Copywriter

Job description

We are looking for a native English freelance copywriter living within the EU who can work remotely and help us deliver insightful, culturally British copy to our small business clients. You will be communicating with our Content Manager who works from our office in Amsterdam. Our ideal candidate will have a proven track record of drafting engaging copy and writing high-quality content to achieve client marketing objectives.


For this position, assignments will be exclusively webpage copy for SME websites. Individual orders will represent a single website and may vary from 3 - 30 pages, while the subject matter may vary from hair treatments to legal advice and everything in between!


We pay on a per page basis: 10 EUROS PER PAGE. You will fill out a "capacity form" to let us know how many pages you can write per day and jobs are assigned to match your capacity. For example, if you give us 10 pages each day we will try to assign you a 10-page website with a 24-hour deadline, or a 20-page site with a 48-hour deadline.


Word Counts are: 350 for the Homepage. 250 for all other internal pages. 75 for contact and gallery pages.


You will not need to do any research: all relevant information and an SEO and keyword strategy will be provided. It will simply be a case of implementing the keywords and location in the right elements: H1, H2s, meta-title, and meta-descriptions, etc. - while writing positive copy specific to the topic and keywords of each page.


Page structure will also be defined for you because our designers work with certain templates on WordPress and DUDA.


For most jobs, you will work directly on the live site, while for others you will be asked to work in a Word .doc template.
