Job Description

Have you ever received a marketing text message and either deleted it right away or thought you could do better? This is your chance! The SMS copywriter works in a creative partnership with the campaign manager to conceive, develop, and produce effective SMS messages for mobile marketing campaigns. The copywriter is responsible for writing fun and compelling SMS messages that sound as if they are coming from a real person, not a machine. These texts can establish an on-going virtual dialogue with participants, convince them to take action, or keep them entertained. Messages can reach a wide audience so the writing style must be broadly appealing, use persuasive, natural language, and reflect the copywriter’s deep understanding of his or her culture. What can you do with 160 characters or less?
