The Content Writer is responsible for the effectiveness and success of the brand's copy across all key platforms, first and foremost the website, but it could extend to our blog and social media profiles as requested.

The specific 3-month task is to upgrade all 700 hotel pages using our CMS. The purpose is to improve the hotel description so that it is extremely effective at encouraging the website user to buy online.

This is done by researching the hotel online and calling the hotel to ask for missing information, including also to phone interview the owner about their passion of their hotel. Languages are a bonus for interviewing of international owners.
