Introducing Jason ...
Hi, my name is Jason and this is my first day working as the new technical copywriter for Affilorama. I'm looking forward to getting to know you over the coming months and learn more about the challenges you face building a successful affiliate site.
What does a technical copywriter do? Essentially a technical copywriter is a combination of two disciplines: technical writing and copywriting. They do share a lot of similarities with the main difference being that a technical writer is more focused on informing unlike copywriters who are mostly writing to persuade. So this means I'll be looking to write blog posts or lessons on Affilorama that capture your imagination and try to teach something at the same time - the best of both writing worlds :).
Lastly, a bit about me. I previously worked for MYOB as a technical writer then migrated to the marketing services team, specialising in online marketing and web development. So, while being relatively new to the affiliate business, I come with a strong understanding of small business management and the ensuing fun and frustrations. I'm looking forward to learning more about this business and will be busy over the coming weeks researching affiliate sites and polling you all on your valuable insights in this exciting industry. I look forward to getting your input!
Since this is my first day (and I'm just hoping to get through the day without forgetting anyone's name or blowing up the office kettle) I'd like to hear from you what 'first day tips' you have for me, or what you remember from your first day at a new job.
Look forward to hearing from you ...
