Project Description

We are developing several niche websites. All are either in their very early stages or not yet created. All need to be optimized and monetized. We may purchase existing sites as well if the opportunity is right. Candidates will be working in WordPress to complete some or all of the following tasks. I am open to paying by the hour, the job or hiring someone full time (40+ hours/week) for a short period of time. Ideally some of the tasks will be reusable across multiple sites, but the content will not be reusable and the niches are not necessarily related. Due to the diversity of these skills, a person may wish to engage for part, but not all of the requirements. For example, a great coder may not be particularly talented with SEO, in which case we might engage a second person for the SEO and leave the coder to do what they do best.

All niches are family friendly. Finances, education, real estate, pool care, air conditioning, construction, etc.

Using WordPress and other relevant resources, the successful candidate will be expected to complete tasks in the following areas:

Site Creation - point URL to host, install WordPress, select and load template, populate site

SEO - keyword research, content and link building

Social Media - create and cultivate followers/audience using Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Google+, Twitter, HootSuite, etc

eCommerce - add and manage digital products

Premium Members Area - create and manage premium member area

Google Analytics - establish, monitor and optimize, including testing (champion/challenger)

Monetization- affiliate links, product sales and Google AdWords

List Building - gain RSS, email list and premium content subscribers

Research, Evaluate, Migrate and Manage Purchased Site - we may elect to purchase existing websites and migrate them to our host then optimize, monetize and manage

Pay Per Click Advertising - price, test and manage pay per click advertising on various services within a very small budget

Online Software Development - if the right candidate is adequately skilled, we would like to use them to create web-based software-like solutions that solve business problems

In your response, please include any resources/blogs/podcasts that you subscribe to or follow to remain current, and any courses, programs or resources that you used to educate yourself. Portfolios of past work, current projects or personal endeavors are also appreciated.

This could be a full time position for someone, but should not be viewed as a permanent position. A highly successful candidate may be able to turn this into a full time permanent position with the right work ethic and superior results. We are a start up and at this time cannot predict the longevity of the project, you will have a big impact on that! Successful candidate must be able to work independently, in a virtual environment, with minimal supervisor. A self starter who can catch the vision and run with an idea, while taking limited but specific direction when necessary, will be most successful in this role.
