Dear bufferapp team,
I am writing to express an enthusiastic interest in the Content Crafter position posted on your website. I am a fond user of the Buffer app, having used it for both professional and personal matters. I am a Tampa, Florida based techie with a passion for writing. I have written for The Examiner, Android Guys, and other websites in addition to my personal cathartic pursuits.
To elaborate on my usage of Buffer, I found get success in using the mobile and web apps to reach out to local consumers during my role as a Sales Operations Manager for T-Mobile. Often working day, evening, and weekend shifts, Buffer allowed me to connect with business and consumer clientele during the times they prefer to view and interest with brands and social media. Currently, I serve as an Operations Manager for a marketing company overseeing multiple territories throughout the United States. I continue to use Buffer as a “one stop” tool to post to my personal accounts.
My interests lie in business strategy, marketing, technology, and film, and the common thread that unites these is my passion and talent in writing about my interests. I believe my experience in providing thoughtful, engaging content, combined with my business background, would allow me to contribute my creative and strategic insights in order to grow Buffer into a household name.
I have direct experience helping small businesses increase customer reach by providing content marketing in the form of ghostwriting articles, blog entries, and “About Us” pages. Some examples of my freelance work can be found here, here, and here. And, if you want a good belly laugh, here.
Some of my work with Android Guys has been mentioned on other sites, like Lifehacker, and highlighted on certain app company’s websites. Unfortunately, AndroidGuys.com has undergone a reformatting, and some of the original author tags have been removed. However, I can provide the founder, Scott Webster, as a reference. I have also provided a few links below as an example of my writing abilities. I hope you will find that my professional experience, interests, writing abilities and style meet your qualifications for this position. If so, I would love to chat with you to discuss this opportunity in further detail.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you, and to the continued growth and success of Buffer!
