NOTE: This position has been filled and this posting has expired. We are no longer accepting applicants. Thanks.

If so, you might be just who we’re looking for to join us as a Digital Marketing Strategist in a client-facing, full-time, remote contractor position.

We’re Digital Commerce Partners, a small, fast-growing content marketing and SEO agency founded by the creative content pioneers at Copyblogger.

Our clients have a shared goal of increasing revenue through targeted organic traffic and conversion strategies.

We are looking for an experienced Digital Marketing Strategist to achieve that goal for a portfolio of clients, leading a small team of SEO and content experts.

While this is not a sales role, managing client relationships is central to it. Your expertise and leadership will be instrumental in our growth as an agency, helping to earn the trust and future business of the clients you work with.

You will fit this role perfectly if you:

  • Understand and value data-driven processes and execution — and you have the skills to clearly communicate this value to clients as well as your team.
  • Are willing to invest in the listening, learning, and continued growth that will be essential to your success. You’ll be working with a robust set of tools and established processes, with an eye for improving on them in the future.
  • Bring highly-developed skills in leadership and communication. You will be responsible for explaining our approach to clients, while leading a team of SEO and content experts to deliver results.

You’ll know you performed at the top of your game when clients are raving about their increased lead volume, conversions, and revenue

Work with Experienced Pioneers in Content Marketing and SEO

Since 2006, Copyblogger has been teaching creative content marketing and effective SEO. As a company, we’ve practiced what we preached, building an 8-figure bootstrapped software, online education, website hosting, and numerous affiliate marketing ventures.

After 15 years building digital products and businesses, we began working with clients in early 2021. Digital Commerce Partners is the new content marketing services and SEO agency from Copyblogger.

Our core values, what we strive for:

  1. Better communication, fewer meetings. We value each other’s time, focus, and energy. Get things done, then close the laptop and live your life.
  2. Client goals are our goals. We succeed when clients succeed — delivering results is our reason for being.
  3. Generate ideas, not excuses. We figure things out together. Don’t get stuck — get curious and collaborate.
  4. Keep it simple and take action. Instead of overthinking or avoiding difficult problems, we make decisions and act.
