Branded Content Writer – Nativeworks

Nativeworks creates meaningful, compelling branded content for our clients in hyperlocal markets. Our content starts with why, tells a human story and avoids brochure-speak.

There’s a lot of dry, uninteresting content out there. And there are plenty of in-your-face advertisements, too. That’s not what we do.

Branded content is less about selling products and more about adding value to our readers. So we tell them a story they want to hear.

Local Voice seeks a talented journalist to be the lead storyteller for our branded content clients.
