What to Expect
Hiring a freelance writer can be daunting, especially if you've never done it before, which is why I created an outline of the steps I take with new clients so you know exactly what to expect.
In most areas in my life I strive for simplicity (which is surprisingly difficult) and my goal is to make working together as easy and transparent as possible.
If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact me directly.
I get nosy about your business goals and focus areas to make sure we’re a good fit. We then hash out our shared vision and expectations for the project. Note that I only take on about 20% of the projects that come my way—not because I’m a jerk, but because I need to ensure that I can give you exceptional value from your investment in the project.
You provide: honest answers and a clear vision for your business and how you serve your audience.
Outcome: I formalize the deliverables, we both sign the proposal, and you complete the down payment.
We collaborate to flesh out the specifics of the project as well as deliverables. We’ll determine due dates for revisions and a complete scope of work.
You provide: availability to talk for 1-2 hours.
Outcome: a one-page PDF that outlines the scope of work, deliverables, and timetables, as well as a strategic plan for how it all comes together.
I work on solving your problem by developing a project map. We’ll revise as needed and put together a final product.
You provide: The necessary getting started data and materials and prompt revisions during the development process.
Outcome: The end product will help you overcome the obstacles we discussed during our initial briefing.
Once any necessary testing is wrapped, we officially finish the project and release it out into the world.
You provide: launch promotion and engagement with your audience.
Outcome: New eyeballs on the finished project geared toward achieving our end objective.
