Hi! We're Strategy11. We are the company behind Formidable Forms and our newly acquired Business Directory Plugin. No matter what product we're working on, our goal is to make big projects possible without big resources, and make complex tasks simple. Our software is running on almost 400,000 websites, and our team is growing fast. We have tons of big plans for the future, and would love for you to be a part of it.
As a Copywriter at Strategy11, you’re responsible for communicating how cool our products are to new and existing users. You will be a marketing strategist, creative storyteller, SEO expert, and unique content crafter.
To love this role, here’s the type of person you are:

- You’re comfortable with accepting critical feedback without taking it personally.
- You’re a self-starter who loves taking initiative to solve problems and learn new skills, and are comfortable working with minimal direction.
- You take pride in the quality and craftsmanship of your work rather than just doing it to get it done.
- You’re an excellent communicator who makes sure nothing slips through the cracks.
- You’re passionate about leaving your mark on the web for all to see.

Here are the skills and experience that will come in handy:
- WordPress Experience: You’re comfortable with writing and formatting posts and pages, troubleshooting errors, etc.
- Writing and Editing: You can write a well-structured article with impeccable grammar and spelling in a conversational tone. You can edit and proofread your own work to eliminate careless errors instead of relying on an editor to fix them for you.
- Image Editing: You can efficiently take screenshots; resize and crop images; add text, borders, or other elements; compress images; and upload and format them in WordPress so that they are clear, useful, and look good.
- Basic SEO: You understand what SEO is and why it’s important. You know how to research keyword volume and search intent and how to effectively use keywords in your content without keyword stuffing.
