Help Wanted at Enchanted Conversation

I want EC to grow this year, and into the future, but I don’t want to do it alone. I want to spend my time on picking stories and essays and art and finding ways to make Enchanted Conversation a magical place.

I need to create ways to make money from and for the site, but I don’t want to do the legwork for a Patreon campaign, and I don’t have the skills to do first-rate promotion. (Or even tenth rate promotion.) I also need someone to help me promote my Zazzle store.

So, if you are social media savvy, and can prove it, you’re the kind of person I’m looking for. To be more clear, here’s a list of duties:

Promoting the EC Page on Facebook, promoting EC @EnchantedConvo on Twitter, and creating and promoting an Instagram account for EC. I’m most interested in making the Facebook page happen fast. 

Creating and helping me get a private EC Facebook group going. 

Helping promote my Zazzle store. I’ll continue creating the products.

Helping me create and support a crowdfunding campaign. Duties will include helping me come up with and distributing rewards for support, promoting the campaign, and delivering rewards and thank you’s. (I’m not a fan of Patreon, but I realize I probably need it.)

When I’m stuck on what art to use or what stories or other works to use, I’ll need a sounding board, so an appreciation of folklore and fairy tales is essential.

Candidates should have a lot of comfort with Photoshop or something like it, and some CSS and html familiarity would be great.

This all may sound like a lot, but a person with energy and some internet savvy will find it fast, easy work. There might be times with more work, like when we’re getting a crowdfunding campaign off the ground, but other times will be very light.

Hours will vary, but assume roughly 10-15 hours per month. I can pay a $500 stipend—approximately $100 per month. For now, the duration of the position will be from late July-early August through the end of December, with the possibility of continuing if the arrangement suits us both. 

Please send me an email with your experience with social media, and, preferably, some experience with crowdfunding. Or a standard resume would be fine.

The email should be sent to enchantedconversation@gmail.com, and addressed to me, Kate Wolford.

I’ll take application emails until the position is filled. I do hope someone would be interested!
