QandA

How does the process work?

We’ll begin with a kick-off conversation to discuss the details of your project. I’ll scope out the requirements and create a timeline and cost estimate for you. When the work is completed, I’ll deliver it to you via email, posting, or other agreed-upon method.

Are you, a single freelancer, better than an agency?

I’m more affordable and offer similar skills and experience as a senior-level agency copywriter.

How are you better than other writers?

I’m a working creative writer with many years of successful experience in business, education and technology, acquired over hundreds of engagements. That’s a unique combination—and an advantage to you. I bring powerful tools from the creative arts, along with an understanding of business goals and processes. My aim is always to use my skills to meet project goals and exceed client expectations.

How do you bill?

Either by the hour or a flat project fee, depending on our agreement.

What is your process?

Generally, projects begin with research and interviews. I’ll want to read your existing written materials and speak with you and/or members of your team. Successful work is always collaborative. The more open the lines of communication, the better the results.

How many revisions do you do?

I will deliver a first draft and two revisions, unless we have a different agreement.

How long have you been doing this?

I’ve been a professional writer since the early ’90s. Earlier, I was a software developer and instructor.

Do you have references?

Yes. I’ll be happy to provide you with contact info of several past clients.

Can you edit or improve our existing documents or marketing materials?

Very likely, yes. I can often elevate the quality of written communications. I’ll use the Track Changes feature of Word so you can see my edits. Many web pages and brochures can benefit from a fresh perspective.

Can you work with our team?

Yes. I often work with and manage graphic designers, writers and website developers. I’ve produced several websites from start to finish.

Are you open to full-time work with us?

Depending on my obligations at a given time, if the fit is right…

Can you design a website?

No. But I can plan the site pages, write the copy and work closely with your designers. I can often make useful suggestions regarding site architecture, graphic elements, etc., as well.

How do we start?

Reach out to me by phone or email via the Contact page. I’ll get back to you within 1 business day.
