Take Your Writing Career In A Lucrative New Direction as a Small Business Copywriting Consultant!
Freelance copywriter? Your earning potential is capped by the number of projects you can take on at a time.
Staff writer? Your salary is capped until you work your way up to a senior role.
Either way that income ceiling exists…
…Unless you find creative ways to leverage your writing skills that don’t involve typing round the clock or waiting for a plum promotion.
Enter THIS incredible opportunity to parlay your copywriting genius into a highly lucrative and gratifying career mentoring business owners as they craft their own persuasive marketing messages!
If you’re ready for a life WITHOUT rounds of revisions, long nights staring at the screen, and tight turnarounds, your dream role awaits within a fast-growing virtual marketing consultancy that practices REAL work-life balance (evenings & weekends are for Netflix and good books) and prioritizes laughter as the first requirement in getting the job done.
About The Opportunity
Known for amplifying the voices of online personal and professional development experts (think the next Brené Brown or Deepak Chopra), Orisha Creative is seeking a part-time Copywriting Consultant who will work directly with our core team and client community as we deliver our proprietary framework, The Nurture Matrix™, an inventive method of nurturing leads with strategically written emails and social content designed to pre-sell programs and packages.
Our Copywriting Consultant will combine their innate ability to craft high-converting copy with our proprietary nurture messaging methodologies to provide video-based recommendations and coaching that helps our clients make their Nurture Matrix™ and related marketing copy compelling and effective.
While our proprietary methods require a license should you wish to use them outside of this role; the overall skills you’ll be mentored to develop are easily transferable and profitable for a writer wishing to set themselves apart as a Consultant and expert.
The Ideal Candidate
As the ideal candidate you…
...Have an affinity for entrepreneurship and likely another part-time or freelance gig. In this role, you’ll likely work with us for about 10 hrs max in a given week so another income source is absolutely reasonable.
...Thrive where you’re given all the tools and training you need to deliver an A+++ job. Some experience editing copy and providing feedback to non-writers would be awesome but we’re willing to train the right candidate.
...Are a confident and clear communicator OUTSIDE of your writing abilities—including communicating on camera. You’ll need to be be able to share what edits are needed and WHY, so you’ll need to be able to articulate that verbally and be comfortable doing so in video recordings and live in group settings.
...Come alive when you are jamming messaging angles and using your wordsmithing skills to take drafts from okay to OUTSTANDING.
...Have a healthy obsession with personal and professional growth. Our clients are coaches, mentors and teachers so you’ll be right at home if you also believe that knowledge is power.
You are also someone who receives true satisfaction from:
Helping others to get better at the skills that come naturally to you.
Staying at the pulse of the ever changing online marketing landscape.
Working with an organization that isn’t just here to worship the almighty dollar but rather seeks to make a positive contribution to this world starting with its core employees.
Scope of Work
Your responsibilities will include:
Reviewing client copy submissions and providing thoughtful and specific edits to make them more compelling once per week.
Attending and facilitating a portion of our live training sessions for clients once per month.
Liaising with the rest of our team to offer any suggestions that might improve our client experience based on gaps in learning you might notice as you work with clients.
Please note: these are our IDEAL qualifications NOT non-negotiable criteria. We want this to be clear because research shows that applicants who are female or non-binary, as well as applicants who are Indigenous and/or people of colour, tend not to apply for positions they are not 100% qualified for based on listed requirements.
If you believe you have what it takes to do the job, please do apply even if you feel you do not meet all of the following qualifications. The secret code word to apply is MAGIC.
At least 3 years experience in conversion copywriting, advertising copy, or email marketing. Ideally not just experience writing internal communications or fiction but rather writing persuasive marketing copy to SELL.
Impeccable command of the English language and the ability to accurately edit written work.
Some experience providing copy reviews, editing recommendations or critique to non-writers.
Experience with remote team communication tools (ie. Slack, Zoom, Loom, Asana or Teamwork).
Stellar time management.
The ability to travel for training and occasional in-person meetings in the Greater Toronto Region (a few times per year when safe to do so).
Legally eligible to work in Canada and interested in part-time employment. To be clear: This is a very flexible remote part-time employment offer; not a freelance role. Canada Pension Plan, Employment Insurance, and taxes will be deducted. A T4 slip will be issued.

Our team members and clients feel like long lost friends we’d be excited to enjoy a meal with.

How To Apply
Please email us a document or preferably a short Loom that answers the following questions with the secret code as the subject line:
Why is this role your DREAM role? We know what’s a fit for us; we want to know why this is a fit for you!
What will you contribute to Orisha Creative if hired as our Copy Consultant? Go ahead and sell us on what you’ll bring to the table!
Your exact compensation requirements As a young company, we recognize that the right team member has the potential to help us grow exponentially, so while we’re budgeting based on the reported salary average for similar roles, we are willing to consider compensation that aligns with the contribution you know you can deliver.
If you know your contribution will be above and beyond, this is your opportunity to communicate a compensation structure that reflects that!
If you pick a compensation structure that makes sense given where our business is at, and everything else in your application looks good, we will interview you.
If you come in higher than we know we can possibly agree to, we won’t waste your time, even if the rest of your application is perfect.
Finally, if you don’t give a number at all, your application will go unread.
As a guide, the average Copy Editor in Canada earns about $24 / hr (~roughly $50K annually) according to payscale.com. The role “Copy Consultant” is quite unique and no comparable employee data exists so we’re using Editor as our guide.
We expect to compensate the successful candidate between $25 - $45 per hour to start, commensurate with the experience you bring to the table and the results you can deliver to our organization
Oh and we are happy to see your official resume and writing samples, however our primary focus will be on your answers to the above questions at this point in the application process.
Please include the secret code in the subject line and email firstname.lastname@example.org with your responses to be considered.
