Content Marketing Specialist

Content: It’s what powers the Internet; it’s what drives people to a website; it is what modern society furiously gobbles up and there’s never too much of it. And we want you to make it!

Fun.com is looking for true masters of the Internet to help develop our brands [Fun.com, Shirts.com and HalloweenCostumes.com] into world-renowned resources for informative and entertaining content and product. Our Content Marketers spend their days creating high quality content and hunting across the web to build relationships that feature our expertise in costumes, as well as showcase our unique costume and licensed T-shirt product lines. Our Content Marketers do this by writing blog posts, infographics, how-to guides, videos and any other ways that we can think of to tie relevant movies, music, books, games, video games, toys, etc. into our brands’ products. We are looking for a creative, resourceful, humorous, driven and strategic individual to fill this role. You know, somebody that’s good at everything. That’s not too much to ask for, right?

We guarantee this will be way more fun than those other content jobs out there: trying to increase the Google ranking of a local dental clinic with a website straight from the Geocities era or figuring out how to write yet another blog post about the savings possibilities of buying a used mattress. That’s boring and we won’t make you do that. You can write about Batman here. In fact, it’s pretty likely that you’ll write about Batman in some way while you work with us.

If you’re the kind of person who is ahead of the curve when it comes to Internet trends, obsessively pours over pop cultural minutiae and can write great stuff quickly, we want you to work for us! For more details on how to apply, visit our website at http://www.fun.com/jobs.aspx

When you do apply, be sure to send your resume, cover letter, AND a writing sample between 1,000-1,500 words long. Applications submitted without an enclosed writing sample will not be considered.

This position can be based out of either the Mankato office of Fun.com or the Burnsville office of Fun.com, whichever is more convenient for the applicant.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities
  • Creating relevant, pitchable content. In the world of Internet Marketing, content is king and you shall help us rule from the Iron Thone. (By the way, if you didn’t get that reference, you’re probably not who we’re looking for.)
  • Pitching content and creating relationships with 10+ new sites/niches per day
  • Earn links for the various Fun.com brands to increase organic traffic and optimize search results
  • Work closely with other departments to emphasize certain products and capitalize on current or future trends
  • Work on contests and giveaways to drive more traffic to HalloweenCostumes.com, Shirts.com and Fun.com
  • Utilize applicable web metrics to garner quality links and best content for Fun.com and its websites
  • Continually research and utilize new and evolving SEO best practices
  • Other duties as assigned
Requirements and Skill Sets
  • Superlative writing ability, with the ability to change writing style depending on the situation
  • Able to write original content quickly
  • Ridiculous amounts of pop-cultural and geeky knowledge, both broad and specialized
  • High degree of knowledge in Mozilla Firefox and general web browser usage

  • Well-versed in social media usage
  • Able to work on several projects at any one time
  • Ability to prioritize aforementioned several projects
  • Always on top of major Internet, television, movie, fashion trends
