Social Media & Newsletter Editor

MediaShift is looking for a social media and newsletter editor who will help promote MediaShift content, trainings and events on our social media feeds — mostly on Twitter and Facebook. The primary responsibility will be running the various Twitter feeds, such as @MediaShiftorg and @MediaShiftPod, running our Facebook page, writing up social promos each weekday and scheduling them on HootSuite. You will also give us monthly reports on how our social media promotion has worked out, with strategic ideas on how to improve those. You will also put together our Daily Must Reads email newsletter as well as our other 2 weekly email newsletters, the Journalism & Digital Education Roundup and E-Books and Self-Publishing Roundup. These email newsletters contain links and headlines without any other copy.

This is a contract job that you can do from your own home or office. We prefer that you are a full-time freelancer, and don’t have a current full time job.

Hours: About 50 hours per month.
