Affiliate Parent Writer, BDG
Bustle Digital Group
Marketing & Communications
Posted on Tuesday, March 14, 2023
BDG is seeking a remote part-time Affiliate Parent Writer to join our growing BDG Commerce and Affiliate Marketing team. As an affiliate shopping writer, you will research and write shopping guides and product roundups, as well as revise existing articles for voice, accuracy, and SEO best practices. The role will focus on the parenting space, although coverage will extend to home, health, fashion, and tech products so the candidate should be interested in a wide range of topics.
The Commerce team is independent of Editorial, and Commerce articles are written to generate revenue from sales of products featured in the articles. The success of a BDG affiliate article is measured based on the affiliate revenue it earns. This means the ideal candidate is not only a strong writer, but can also effectively communicate what makes a product worth purchasing.
The ideal candidate should have three or more years of experience writing, ideally with a Commerce and SEO background. Knowledge of parenting topics is a must. Think: You’ve previously written on the best baby monitors for twins, told readers about your favorite eczema cream for baby, or rounded up all the hottest toys for toddlers.
Most importantly, candidates should be knowledgeable and passionate about researching products (especially those found on Amazon), as well as up-to-date on the latest parenting trends. They should have an eye for the type of the products Scary Mommy, Romper, and Fatherly readers want to buy and are eager to spend time searching through (sometimes hundreds!) of items.
Candidates must be able to work remotely 12 hours a week.
Examples of Commerce Team Stories:
- Previous experience writing commerce/shopping articles
- Excellent time management and organization
- Availability to work 12 hours per week
- A select number of stories will require the writer to find expert sources (i.e. pediatrician, ophthalmologist, professional organizer, etc) to quote. The ideal candidate will be comfortable finding these experts and conducting phone/email interviews with them.
