Now Hiring: Non-Lame Online Community Manager for Entrepreneur/Investment Forum
We’re a fairly new online community (forum) tailored to “entrepreneurs turned investors”. You can find us at Investing.io.
Basically, it’s a place where online-first business owners can talk about and organize investments into things more tailored for our skillsets. So yeah, everyone and their uncle knows by now that you should put your money in an index fund, cool, but not everyone knows how to optimize an affiliate site to flip it, organize and raise a small fund, develop an angel investing philosophy, or find the latest DEFI projects to check out.
With this community being new we are needing some help to grow and maintain it. Priority #1 is to make the community as insanely valuable to the members as possible. Our definition of success is if members are treating it as one of their “online homes”. Do they visit daily, and interact in the forum? Does one valuable thread or resource provide enough value to pay for an entire year’s membership fees? That is success to me.
So, how can you help? We are needing someone to join us to facilitate this growth. Managing the admin side of it, but also helping to add value inside of the community.
- Moderating threads
- Managing payments
- Vetting new members
- Facilitating discussions (tagging relevant members, sharing resources, etc)
- Writing weekly community summary emails (best threads, new members, etc)
- Customer support (minor)
- Announcing updates
- Adding resources to the community (summaries, how-to’s, etc found elsewhere)
- Putting together a weekly list (email/post) of available deals from our sources
- Really just doing whatever it takes to make it awesome
There really isn’t a strict list of stuff you need to know. It’s more of a “best-fit” type of thing.
I’d say the most important quality is to know your way around the online business world.
If you have an ok understanding of the following terms then it’s a good start.
Digital marketing, SEO, SaaS, affiliate marketing, analytics, conversion optimization, backlinks, niche selection, FBA, WordPress, ConvertKit.
If all of these terms seem foreign to you, then we’re probably not a good fit. You don’t need to know how to do everything, but you do need to at least understand the vibe of it all.
Now, that’s the base. The next level is if you have any experience in the investing world. Let’s be real, we don’t actually expect too many people to have both the online business skillset AND an investing skillset, but let’s see what happens.
Some bonus subjects to be knowledgeable on:
Seed funding, Website flipping, Real estate investing, Fund selection, Crowdfunding, Crypto, Syndicates, Micro PE, and all the other traditional investing stuff you hear everywhere.
Don’t worry, you will NEVER be giving any sort of advice, just facilitating the discussions.
- We’re looking for a part-time freelancer to start. We have no idea how much time this will take, but guestimating 3-4 hours a day.
- We’re more than happy to make this full time if it is a good fit down the road.
- Obviously, during the plague, this position is 100% remote, but we would reallllly love to make it semi-remote in the future, where maybe
- 1 or 2 days a week we work together for a few hours, with having fully remote phases a few months a year (to travel)
- Our group is the most anti-corporate, non-suit wearing bunch around. None of that BS is acceptable.
- This position will be the complete opposite of micromanagement. You need to be able to think for yourself, figure out problems, and work without input for lots of tasks. We will all help you get going of course, but seriously you should expect to just treat this like your own business. Freedom to work whenever as long as it’s getting done.
- There is no set schedule of work hours. Just doing whatever needs to be done.
- If your application says “Microsoft Word proficient” it’s an instant disqualification for being lame.
- We really don’t care if you’re a Harvard grad or a high school dropout. We care what you can do and what you know.
- Bonus points if you have a strong meme-game.
- Pay depends on experience level,
Please don’t send us a resume full of a bunch of fluff that has to be dug through. We’d really rather just a direct message detailing why you’re a good fit, with some details backing it up.
Don’t forget to say in your application:
