Part-Time Writer Wanted at One of America's Fastest-Growing Natural & Organic Consumer Products Companies

Job Description

Puracy.com is seeking a talented part-time freelance writer to generate engaging, original content for our weekly blog/newsletter. The position will involve writing two blog posts per week. To get a sense for the type of writing we are looking for, please view our archives.

The ideal candidate has several years of experience writing newsletter and blog content, a history of writing content focused on building search engine optimized (SEO) traffic, and a passion for natural/organic products, charitable giving, and environmentally-conscious living. Each newsletter post needs to add value to our readers by incorporating in-depth research on the topic at hand, and the content needs to be written in a unique, compelling, friendly, and approachable voice.

Puracy.com is a consumer products company that develops and sells a popular line of natural and organic household, personal care, and baby care products. For the past five years we have worked with a team of doctors and chemists to create non-toxic, plant-based products that are safe for your family, safe for the environment, and just as effective as the chemical-filled kind. Our roughly 30 products include cleaners, soaps, shampoos, cleansers, detergents, lotions, conditioners, and air fresheners.

Our 100% U.S. made product line has won countless awards for quality and efficacy, received tens of thousands of customer testimonials, and many of our products rank near the top of Amazon's Best Seller lists. We've experienced our growth and success almost entirely via e-commerce. We will make our first foray into Brick & Mortar in January 2019 with a launch into Target stores.

Since our company's founding in 2013, our sales have doubled or tripled every year, ranking us as one of the fastest-growing businesses in Austin, Texas. We are a small company that rewards our people and regularly donates to local charities. By joining our team, you are getting involved with one of Austin's most promising young businesses at a very early stage.
