CREATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR ANY WRITING ENDEAVOR

When you look for a writer, you want to find an individual who can swim the creative seas and develop fresh, unique content. You also want someone who walks in the real world and will meet deadlines, answer the phone, and accept edits as a challenge not an insult. I know that I can be that trusted writing partner for you.

With over eight years of professional writing under my belt, I’ve developed a wide skill set and love adding new tools and experience to my repertoire. To the right, you’ll find a list of the most common writing services I perform. Click on each button to learn more about that particular service. Scroll down to see my pricing.

Pricing

I provide an hourly rate to give clients a general idea of how much my services cost. Most often, however, I provide clients with a proposal that includes a single project cost. Below, you’ll find a list of service packages. I often request a minimum job size and provide discounts for larger jobs or reoccurring jobs. I am always happy to consider writing services that are not on this list and to develop a proposal for unique jobs.

I know that I am not the cheapest content writer available. My pricing reflects my experience, expertise, reliability, and commitment to finding just the right words for each client.

OVERVIEW OF SERVICES

Blogs are short articles, usually connected to a general theme, that individuals and companies post on a website. Blogs allow you to communicate in a much deeper way than the typical social media platform. Through blogging, you can have a conversation about topics and themes related to your business, your customer service outlook, and the character/spirit of your company.

Blogging is also great for search engine optimization, because it adds lots of content, keywords, and new pages to your website, which the search engines can then index. Blogging, when done right, requires a consistent stream of interesting, informative, and relatable articles. Lots of heavy handed marketing won’t do the trick if you want readers to come back!

Got some big news? Maybe a new product that’s going to change your industry, a community outreach project, or a story that will touch hearts? A press release is an article written as a news story that conveys something new or interesting about a company.

Many businesses send press releases to their local media markets, industry bloggers, or even national media. A well-written press release with a great news topic can reward businesses with free media coverage and lots of increased visibility.

An article is very much like a blog post, though it is typically longer in length and goes into greater depth on its topic. They can be used in a variety of ways. You can use a detailed article as a white paper, post it on your website, send it out to leads as an email, or even hand out an article at tradeshows or events.

The specifics of the article will depend on what topic it covers, the audience, and how the piece will be used. If you plan on posting the article online, then we’ll focus on using the right keywords to support search engine optimization.

A website is your central hub, your business’s online storefront. You want to create a welcoming place where website visitors can easily learn who you are, what you offer, and why you’re different and better than the next guy. I can help you define your company’s brand and voice, so your website accurately reflects the spirit of your business. I can also implement keywords so that potential customers can easily find you through search engine queries.

Newsletters are a great way for you to stay in contact with customers or those who have shown interest in your business or industry. Most newsletters contain a short, interesting article, along with company news. Some also contain special coupons or discounts to encourage customers to make a purchase.

You can also develop an automated series of newsletters, called a drip campaign, that provides specialized information or automatically sends to leads during different stages of the sales cycle. Drip campaigns can be an effective way of developing a relationship with new leads and positioning yourself as a trustworthy and likable expert in your industry. Newsletters and drip campaigns both require a large amount of content, which can strain business owners who are short on time or patience.

Brochures are extremely useful if you attend events, give talks, or network on a regular basis. While a new contact maybe never make it to your website, he or she will likely glance at a brochure in hand. Brochures vary greatly, depending on their purpose. You may need a general business brochure to hand out at networking events, or perhaps you’d like special product brochures to give out during tradeshows or after public demos. You may even want to create brochures focused on specific market segments, especially if you speak to certain groups of people, like senior citizens, athletes, or parents.

It can often be intimidating to write a brochure. Space is limited, so every word counts. Let me help you define the scope and purpose of your brochure and then to find the right words to catch and hold a reader’s attention.

Most business owners feel that they must have a presence on social media, but the truth is that social media will only work if you understand how to use it correctly. Every platform, from Facebook to LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, Pinterest, etc.. is used in a different way. Facebook continues to be the most popular social media platform of the moment (though that could change any day!), and it can be an effective way to communicate with your customers and get discovered by new customers. The key to Facebook success is consistent posting that intrigues, challenges, amuses, and moves your fans so that they will engage and even share posts with their tribe. Many business owners simply do not have the time to post regularly on Facebook or to generate strong posts on a regular basis.

Do you have a novel or nonfiction book lingering in the back of your mind but no idea of how to get it out on paper? You are not alone. Writing a book requires a huge amount of focus, time, commitment, and writing skill, which is why most books remain only a dream.

Whether you want to share a profound personal experience, write the next great self-help book, or distill your expertise into a book you can give out at lectures and conferences, I may be able to help. I’ve written a handful of fiction novels (available for sale on Amazon) and a multitude of short stories. I’ve also written fiction and nonfiction books for clients in a ghostwriting capacity. I can work with you every step of the way, from sketching the outline, to compiling research, working through drafts, and even helping you to self-publish or seek a publisher for the book.

WARNING: Commissioning a ghostwriting project is not for the faint of heart. This will be a very time-consuming process that will require very close collaboration between me and you. The amount of time and skill required to write a full-length book (typically 50,000 – 100,000 words) results in a big price tag. Expect a quote of at least $10,000 if you should choose to work with me and a timeline of 6 – 12 months. Additionally, I only work on one ghostwriting project at a time to provide the best quality possible, so I may not be immediately available for your project.

Your resume and cover letter are often the very first introduction you get with a potential employer. We all know how important first impressions are. With so much at stake, you must make sure that your resume gleams! Even something as simple as a spelling mistake could mean the difference between an interview and rejection.

I have previously worked on hiring teams and have performed dozens of interviews for a variety of positions. I can help you create a stellar cover letter and resume or update and polish an old cover letter and resume that might have been gathering dust for a while.

Have you already created a website, a book, a white paper, or other document but it just isn’t quite there yet? As a certified copyeditor, I can help you polish your writing. Sometimes this means just fixing a few grammatical errors or adding missing punctuation. Other times that means improving flow and readability, tightening up long paragraphs and run-on sentences, and adding a little more spice to make the writing come alive.

If your content says, “bleh,” then it won’t reflect well on you or your business. Let me help it shine.

Need help with a writing project that isn’t on this list? Click on the contact option in the main menu and let me know what you need. I’ve helped clients with all sorts of writing above and beyond my list of services, and I always enjoy a new challenge.

I’ve written LinkedIn biographies, marketing video scripts, sell sheets, book tag lines, media pitches, elevator speeches, and much more. I’ve also done keyword research, created Facebook pages, helped to coordinate and manage projects, and provided website analytics reporting in conjunction with other projects.
