As professional travelers, we are well aware of the declining state of our environment and climate. Our volunteer opportunities revolve around doing our part to protect the environment - by picking up trash around our cities and along our trails. 


We look for opportunities to support organizations that help animals recover from abuse and habitat loss and seek to teach others to travel more sustainably and economically.

Jobs

Marketing Professional

Location: Remote Position - Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada based Company

Position Type: Freelance

Who are we:

Josh the Travel Guy - Guided Tours and Excursions is a Canadian based Multimedia and Tour Company. We offer a variety of travel based services including guided tours and excursions, written reviews and articles, and custom multimedia productions including travel videos and commercial photography.

The Position:

Working alongside the Founder and CEO, our Marketing Professionals will help design a strategy to create brand awareness, increase viewership of YouTube videos and build online presence in the travel community. Our Marketing Professionals will perform both a "hands on" role as well as a consulting role. The major focus will be on promoting our YouTube travel videos.


You will be required to:

  • Enhance SEO for videos (re-write video descriptions, generate a list of relevant keywords / tags)
  • Develop a method to generate substantial growth in our viewership (creating a growth strategy, sharing content on a variety of social media platforms, utilizing contacts to increase our growth and exposure, find proper and relevant hashtags to use on social media posts)
  • Contact third party organizations (companies, bloggers, social influencers) for filming and video sharing opportunities 
  • Engage in email communication and video conferences (on occasion - and likely through FaceTime) with Founder and other team members


Experience

This is an entry-level position.

Our ideal candidates would have the ability to grow our YouTube channel. YouTube is a saturated market - and difficult to penetrate. We are turning to you to help us push through and become one of the most recognizable travel brands on the internet. To do this, you must help develop a strategy to  increase the views our videos get - this may mean improving our SEO, sharing our videos using your social media contacts and outlets, and reaching out to other organizations to share our material.


Based on Halifax, NS we want to become the first resource locals people turn to for outdoor and travel information. We would like to grow in our community and become more involved. Being able to identify marketing opportunities within our community would be a bonus. 


Future Projects


As the company continues to grow, so will the responsibilities of the position. In addition to creating YouTube content, we also create travel guides and articles. Being able to share these articles with a wider audience will help drive traffic to our website. Submitting our articles to online sources and journalists across Canada (and the globe) would be a crucial part of growing our company and improving our community involvement. 


After COVID-19 has diminished, and social distancing regulations have lessened, we will begin offering guided tours - beginning on Nova Scotia and expanding across the country. During this time of growth, we will utilize your experience to help increase our exposure in this new endeavor.

Compensation

The following position is commission based. You will receive 20% of the income generated  from the YouTube video(s) you assist with. Since videos create passive income, you will continue to generate income on previous videos you've worked on. The more videos you optimize, the more income you'll receive. The more views a videos gets, the more income you'll receive. We have structured our payment system in a way that promotes work ethic. We don't want to place a cap on your earning potential - we know we wouldn't want that for ourselves - and therefore don't want that for you.


Once you finished optimizing the growth of one video, a new video will be sent to you for optimization.


*Compensation for all "future projects" will fall under a different payment structure structure*

As the business continues to grow, this position will adapt - allowing us to provide additional benefits and compensation.
