What’s your turnaround time?
That depends on the size of the project. For instance, a review of your webpage could be done in 24-48 hours. Working on a big complicated project will take more time. But whatever the case, you’ll have an estimated completion time at the outset, and I’ll always keep you up-to-date on the status of the project.
How much do you cost?
That depends on the type of project, turnaround time, and other factors. I can work with you on a contract basis or by the hour. My starting hourly rate is $30. For many projects I can give a flat fee once I know the details. I’ll never engage in hard-selling (I want to work with people who want to work with me) and I’ll never bait-and-switch with hidden fees or surprise charges.
If you’re good, why are you so inexpensive?
You can see from my photo that I’m not a grizzled veteran, who wants you to pay for 37 years of experience. I’m young, and a primary goal of mine at the moment is to continue building a portfolio of delighted clients who return to me again and again, and might even refer me to others. That’s why for the time being I’m willing to lowball myself a bit, and work for a no-brainer rate.
What do you need from me?
To polish your writing, I would need access to what you’ve already written. We’ll discuss your goals for the finished work, and after agreeing on the details of the project, I’ll begin working.
To create original content, I’ll communicate with you about what you know that you need, and I’ll ask for examples of things you like. Maybe a competitor has a great special report or web page. Maybe no competitor does, but you’ve seen something impressive in another industry. At any rate, we’ll talk about the desired outcome, we’ll discuss what other information we need to find out, and I’ll create a plan for the size and duration of the project. I will then keep in contact with you as needed throughout the writing process for input and updates.
For a second opinion, you can send me your work, along with any notes related to what you would like me to focus on (first impressions, readability, persuasiveness, and overall presentation, etc.)
For brainstorming, I’ll learn about your initial idea and then begin the process of generating new ideas for you.
Can we meet in person to work on my project, or are you online only?
I’m happy to meet in person. Talking face to face can add an extra dimension to the conversation and make it easier to go over some types of work.
Most of my work has been for businesses in Providence RI (where I live) or nearby, including in East Providence, Warwick, Cranston, Pawtucket, Lincoln, Cumberland, Smithfield, Woonsocket, and in Southeastern Massachusetts & Greater Boston.
