Traditional Office Job vs. Remote Job

Traditional Office Job

Traditionally, sales writers work in an office setting between 8 AM and 5 PM. Their main goal is to research and write copy that converts into sales. Deadlines vary based on client needs and timelines. Sales measure their success. Employees use company software, equipment, and supplies.

Remote Job

A remote position allows for flexible work locations and hours. Deadlines are set by the client and are managed by the internal team. Teammates communicate virtually through video and cloud-based project management software. Content is reviewed and edited by the client for final approval. Conversion rates and sales measure success. Remote hires use personal software, equipment, and office supplies.
