Freelance Social Media Strategist
The OK COOL studio is turning UP. Covid saw brand budgets shift to social and we were ready to pick them up. We’re on a massive growth trajectory, working with global clients and leaning-in to our unique position as creative and strategic consultants to brands and to the platforms themselves. OK COOL is privileged to work directly with Instagram and TikTok on their most crucial projects and feature roll-outs.
Our team is tight but distributed.
We’ve been drilled in remote work for a hot minute. Our vision is to move away from the fixed team model and continue sourcing and partnering with the hottest young freelance social media Strategists in the world to help us deliver.
We are looking for unicorns. Allstar, one-person creative powerhouse who is:
• A digital native (with social specialism)
We are looking for someone who can get under the skin of a brand, fast; understand that brand’s universe, their competitive set and their place in culture, then use that information to develop social media strategies— how they need to look, feel and sound on social media to earn a place in culture. This will be stuff you know instinctively, because you have always been active in culture and you’ve always known what’s hot and what’s not in brand-world.
You will work with our creative and production teams to bring your vision to life. You’ll be responsible for overseeing creative development and execution of your strategy.
Your job is to curate our client’s social media presence, ensuring every touchpoint of the brand is consistent and in-line with their visual identity as outlined in their brand strategy.
You will have a creative eye and a strong ability to present information visually (sell your vision). You’ll also understand how to manage relationships with the other people and partners necessary in delivering your vision. Naturally you’ll be an expert in social media and deeply acquainted with Gen Z behaviours and trends.
