ContentGrow helps content teams assemble and manage freelancers around the world. We connect our users to high-quality pros who are likely to fit well with certain projects. In this case, a client is seeking freelance scriptwriters for viral social media videos. If this interests you and matches your skillset, please fill out the form below.
Media on ContentGrow are seeking freelance scriptwriters with relevant work samples that show their ability to write copy for viral social media videos. The format involves often taking complex information and boiling it down into short, pithy sentences that are overlaid in the foreground of a short video. In some cases, the writer may also be asked to write voice-over lines.
One very important thing applicants need to demonstrate via work samples is an understanding of video script format. Applicants should also be able to show a variety of relevant published and “raw copy” work samples. The client wants to see what your written work looks like before edits.
Writers need to be great communicators and possess native written fluency in English. They should be able to turn ad hoc scripts around in a matter of days. Individuals selected for this project should have excellent client service skills and need very little hand-holding to produce great copy. They are also lightning-fast to respond to daily inquiries.
This project is open for scriptwriters worldwide. Applicants should be capable of crafting engaging and concise copy that adheres to the brief provided by the brand.
Those who are able to demonstrate a track record in video scriptwriting for general and ultra-niche audiences alike, as well as strong independent research chops, will be prioritized.
Perhaps you work at a social media marketing agency that specializes in video, or maybe you were a part of a content team that took care of video pre-production. Maybe you have experience in copywriting for film, with relevant samples to share.
Rates are fixed on a per video minute basis.

- Now This
