HOW IT WORKS

3 SIMPLE STEPS TO PERFECT CONTENT

First we’ll have a chat and discuss what you need. I’m bringing years of expertise and experience to your project, as well as a background in branding, marketing, and social media, so I know exactly what style, format and tone you’ll require.

There’s no obligation here; it’s just a quick chat (on the phone or online; whatever is easiest for you). You can go away and think about what we’ve said, or sign me up on the spot – which means we’ll set a deadline, and agree on a price.

01

This may sound formal, but the Proposal is really just a written agreement saying I’ll write this for you, by this time, for this amount. You won’t need to do anything; I draw up the Proposal and send it through. You can sit back and relax: your job is in the best hands! I’ll have been making notes on everything we’ve said up to this point: your ideas, your brand, your audience, the style you’re looking for. I’ll develop these, thoroughly researching your market, your competitors, and the relevant SEO.

I’ll send you a first draft before the deadline. We’ll talk it over and, if you have any updates or changes to the information you’ve given me, we’ll fine tune. And that’s it! Whether you need to market, engage, inform, or inspire, I deliver the exquisite writing which expertly targets your audience.

Ensuring that you – and your brand – present the effortlessly professional message you deserve!

Every project is as unique as its client and, while I wish I could give you straight numbers right here, without knowing what you need (what's the purpose of the text, who's your audience, where will it be published?) I'd be doing us both a disservice. 

What I can do is give you a quote: there’s no obligation to commit until we both agree. You’ll find I’m always willing to work with you to achieve the best results for us both. No project is too big or too small; I'll always be interested in what you have to say!

But let's talk about this over the phone or via email; just click the Quote button below (or give me a call), and you'll have your answer within minutes!

GRAMMAR  MATTERS !

THE GRAMMAR POINTS WHICH CONFUSE, CLARIFIED BY AN EXPERT!

 

 'The black, fat cat' sounds wrong doesn't it? 

There's a rule for adjective order, which goes as follows:

1. quantity   2. quality   3. size   4. age   5. shape   6. colour

So we get 'three lovely, large, old, round, black cats'!
