We recently welcomed a new team member, Amy Bryan, as a full-time writer for WordJack. Check out this quick interview I had with Amy to learn a little more about her!
You started out as a freelance writer for WordJack and have since been hired full-time, so while you’re “new” to the team officially, you’ve been around for awhile. What have you liked most about working for WordJack over the last few years?
I love that WordJack gave me the opportunity to do something that I actually enjoy doing as a job. Although some topics are more enjoyable to write about than others, there’s nothing better than tackling some tough content for a client and making it actually interesting and understandable.
Did anything surprise you when you made the switch to full-time?
One thing that surprised me is how much goes on behind the scenes from the point I’m given content to write to the point where it’s actually published online. I was also surprised to learn that the marketing managers at WordJack have most of the control over deciding what types of content will be best for their clients.
What made you interested in working for a web marketing company?
I had never even heard of web marketing until a family member introduced it to me just two years ago. However, the more I learned about it, the more I liked it. I also like the fact that it’s a relatively new industry that not many people know about. However, this does make it hard to convince my grandparents that I really do have a real job . . .
What goals/objectives do you hope to accomplish for WordJack in the near future?
I really want to take my content to the next level in order to benefit WordJack and its clients. The more I read about trends in content marketing, the more I’m realizing that the standards for content continue to become stricter, making it even more important to develop content that’s applicable, interesting, and informative.
What do you enjoy most about being a writer?
I’d say there are two main things about being a writer that I enjoy the most: the flexibility and the fact that I get to create every day. I like to think I’m a semi-creative person, and being a writer for a living is just one of the ways that I get to express that without feeling the pressure to write the next great American novel.
What are some of your interests/hobbies outside work?
My husband and I enjoy exploring the great outdoors with our fur-child, Betsy. Other than that, I’m pretty much Martha Stewart. I like baking, sewing, refinishing furniture, playing the piano, and doing anything else that involves glitter, paint, or fabric.
Welcome to the team, Amy! We’re excited to have you on board!
