Oh hello! Welcome to Article Group's weekly missive devoted to helping you navigate uncertainty, seek the most interesting challenges, and make better creative decisions in marketing and beyond. New in town? Sign up here.

We're looking for a talented content marketer, is it you?

Talented friends,

Over the last year and a half, we've accomplished a lot here at Article Group. While working for some of the biggest and best brands in the world, we've also managed to: Not to mention—we've built axons and dendrites between our marketing and creative and strategy functions! I'm proud that Article Group has devised a way to not only publicize our work but also be helpful to our readers and the marketing community. That's a win-win.

Now it's time to level up.

In a few weeks I'll be departing Article Group (fret not, you can always follow my adventures here). But before I do, I'd like to hire a content marketer to take our content marketing operation to the next level.

The talented human we're looking for brings a journalistic sensibility to marketing. They've got plenty of experience writing, publishing, and managing content for publishers and brands. Ideally, they're also accustomed to working with clients, know how to apply content marketing strategies and tactics to brand work, and have a portfolio of relevant work to share. 

Does that sound like you? Here's the job description!

Sound like the perfect gig for someone you know? Please forward this email.

This is an amazing opportunity to work with some of the most talented people in the creative marketing industry! Article Group is a special place with an impressive client list, a growing team, and a welcoming heart.

Thanks again for reading. This is a wonderful community we've built. Let's keep making it even better!

Have a great week,

Jim Henson's Weird and Awesome Coffee Commercials
"In 1957, Jim Henson was asked to make ads for Wilkins Coffee. The local stations only had ten sec ad slots, so the ads had to be eight secs for the ad, and a two secs for endframe. From 1957 to 1961, Henson made 179 ads with Wilkins and Wontkins, and they're GREAT."
