Content writing is one of the fastest-growing fields in the digital era. It involves creating engaging and informative content for various clients. Most content writing jobs are in the areas of digital marketing, e-commerce and social media. 

With the rise of digital marketing and the constant need for high-quality content, the demand for content writers has increased significantly. New Zealand and Australia are two countries that offer numerous opportunities for writers.

1. Copywriter

Copywriting is a popular content writing job in New Zealand. Clients hire copywriters to create marketing copy, product descriptions, website content and promotional material for products and services. Copywriters specialise in writing persuasive and informative content that ranks highly on search engines and engages readers. Some copywriters also work as freelancers, selling articles to print and online publications.  

2. Content Strategist

Content strategists are tasked with developing strategies for the creation, distribution and promotion of content to meet an organisation’s marketing objectives. To this end, they often work closely with social media managers and copywriters. Content strategists require strong analytical skills to conduct market research and analyse audience data. Additionally, proficiency with Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) is crucial for content strategists to measure the performance of marketing campaigns and ensure that budgets are well spent. 

3. Social Media Manager

Social media managers are responsible for creating and managing social media content in line with a content strategy. They create social media campaigns, engage with users, act as the brand’s online presence and monitor social media analytics. Their skill set often includes content writing and graphic design, as well as a thorough knowledge of social media platforms. 

Content writing jobs in New Zealand and Australia require certain skills and qualifications for success.

1. Excellent writing skills are a necessity. To produce content that will appeal to an audience, content writers must have a strong command of the English language, including grammar, punctuation and spelling.

2. A propensity for creativity allows writers to produce fresh and innovative content that stands out from the competition. 

3. Since content writing is closely linked to digital marketing, writers who are skilled in the use of tools such as social media, email marketing and search engine optimisation (SEO), will thrive in the industry.
