Way before “work-from-home” became a prominent part of our lexicon, the business of blogging was already in full swing.
At the turn of the 21st century, people started to realize the impact of blogs as advertising platforms, marketing tools, and even political instruments. As a result, blogging evolved into a profession—a livelihood that, in many ways, can be considered a precursor of the remote work boom in the 2020s.
Even as all sorts of work-from-home opportunities flood job boards, professional bloggers are going strong. Guess what? You can become one, too!
ShoutVox, a digital content marketing firm based in the Big Apple, is looking for content writers (read: bloggers) to join its team. If writing is your passion, this post may just have your name on it.
Wait a second, we hear you say. What is this ShoutVox?
Founded in 2018, ShoutVox is devoted to assisting small businesses in meeting their sales targets. In its own words, its mission is to help them “develop a cohesive strategy that will drive the strongest ROI for every marketing dollar spent.”
An integral component of ShoutVox’s approach is the creation of engaging content that will cater to specific audiences, thus increasing engagement and generating more leads. This, of course, is where the content writer comes in.
