Senior Content Strategist
At Lippincott, we believe every brand is in the content business. Content builds trust, credibility, and high-value relationships with people. Whether emphasizing meaningful editorial within an experience itself or building out a campaign, marketing program or experience innovation – what you say is who you are and what you do is how you bring people into your brand’s universe. If you see content in the same exciting and unique way – read on.
As a Senior Content Strategist, you will be a creator – working with a team of content to come up with unique content ideas for publication across online or digital platforms. As a subject matter expert, you will be responsible for keeping clients abreast of SEO trends while helping them to achieve their SEO and business goals.
Your constant goal will be to expand ideas, experiences, product capabilities, and support design and experience innovation that will serve both the customer’s needs and our client’s business goals.
But you’ll also be a researcher. What brands are using content in a unique way? How are they bending the rules of experience but leveraging collaboration, culture, conversation, and contextual mechanisms that make their content – more. And how might we inspire our clients to experiment with the same?
