Windmill Strategy understands the unique marketing challenges faced by B2B companies. For over a decade, we’ve helped B2B marketers in technical, industrial and manufacturing industries accelerate growth through highly effective websites and powerful digital marketing.
About The Opportunity:
Windmill Strategy is seeking an experienced copywriter to join our team on an as-needed basis. The ideal candidate will be proficient in drafting and editing high-quality written copy in the form of website content, ongoing blog and article content, landing pages and campaigns, ad copy, marketing emails, case studies, social media posts, and more where purpose, length and tone will vary considerably.
As a copywriter at Windmill Strategy, you’ll play a pivotal role in creating a wide variety of clear, accurate and compelling copy that engages and inspires our clients’ target audiences, who range from technical engineers and scientists to C-suite decision-makers, to maintenance techs in the field. You will work closely with our distributed team of A-players to craft content that aligns with our clients’ brand voice, resonates with and provides clear information to their target markets, and drives tangible results.
This is an exciting opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects across various B2B technical industries, allowing you to constantly expand your skill set and make a meaningful impact on our clients’ success.
This is a remote/WFH position, on a fully virtual team. This is a contract project-based position where hours may ebb and flow week-to-week (average 5-20 hours/week), with the potential to grow into a full time hire.
You are a highly creative, technically adept, curious, and versatile copywriter with a passion for storytelling and an innate ability to distill complex ideas into clear, concise, and persuasive messaging. You have a way of pulling information out of engineers and technical subject matter experts in an interview. You have a keen eye for detail and a strong understanding of B2B marketing strategies, enabling you to craft copy that not only engages and informs readers but also drives desired actions.
You thrive in a collaborative environment and enjoy working closely with cross-functional teams to deliver exceptional results. Your dedication to staying up-to-date with industry trends and best practices ensures that your work is always innovative, effective, and aligned with our clients’ objectives.
You have experience in, and understand writing in a B2B technical environment. You generally avoid being cute with copywriting, skipping the marketing fluff and focusing instead on first being clear and straightforward—and then working in cleverness where it fits. Our clients (and their audiences) are largely technical, often engineers or scientists; they want facts, examples, specifications, details, and clear information. They are allergic to anything that sounds like marketing fluff or sales copy. Their CEOs or purchasing departments want high-level overviews that are also easy to understand.
