  • Analyze data (such as total project costs, material breakdowns, labor costs, and cost factors)  and break it down for readers in a clear, digestible way.
  • Optimize articles for SEO using keywords, tables, visuals, etc.
  • Incorporate edits and feedback from Content Editors, up to two rounds.
