Do you need a content writer? Perhaps this can help you decide.

Your time is precious, I understand. Consider the questions below, read through my process outline, and if you decide I might be the right fit for you, please get in touch.

What is your biggest pain point with your content?
What do you want your content to achieve?
Do you need a business document review and rewrite?
Do you need internal content for your business, or do you need content to reach customers – to advertise/sell/raise brand awareness?   
Are your content requirements a once-off need, or do you need ongoing support?


Step 1: Let’s chat

Call me or shoot me an email.

Let’s talk about your pain points – what brought you here, looking for a content writer?

Think of me as your ‘content therapist’ – without you having to lie on a couch with a box of tissues (though if that is what you need, it is great you have taken the first step in facing your issues!)

This initial discussion gives you the opportunity to do a brain dump and me the chance to ask you some questions to see if we are right for each other. I don’t want to over-promise and under-deliver – we both need a clear understanding of each other’s expectations.

This call can take up to 15 mins, so make sure you allocate time to be fully present.
If we both agree we are the right fit for each other, it’s time to move to the next step.


Step 2: Project Proposal

I will send you a project proposal that summarises our discussion, breaks down my fees, outlines the project key deliverables, and establishes the timeframe requirement. You can review this and determine if it suits your needs or request any tweaks. Turnaround times will depend on the amount of material you supply, your approval times, and the amount of material required.


Step 3: Commencement Payment

Once you’ve agreed to the project scope and costing, I’ll send you a 50% commencement invoice and the project terms and conditions.

Please note that the project will only commence once I receive the signed proposal and commencement payment. 

Once paid, your project will be scheduled. I will then schedule a briefing call at a time that is convenient for you.


Step 4: Briefing call or meeting – this is the most important step.

Before this call, I will send you a project brief document so you can provide all the details required to make this project a success. It is important that you provide as much information as possible.

This document will give you the chance to clarify to yourself what you need your content to achieve. Once you have a clear understanding, then you will be able to instruct me. When you provide me as much detail upfront, it reduces any misunderstanding, streamlines the process, and ensures the project remains within your budget.

We will discuss the project brief; which covers: 

  • Your business – tell me a little about you. What makes your business different?
  • Your objectives – what do you want your content to achieve?
  • Your audience – who do you want to talk to, what tone of voice do you prefer?

The briefing session usually lasts for half an hour but could go longer depending on the information provided in your brief.


Step 5: Time for you to get on with running your business and for me to get cracking on your content.

I will start the first draft and send it to you within our agreed timeframe.


Step 6: Drafts and Editing

I will either email you or upload the draft documents to Google Docs for your review. You can make any edits using track changes.

Your project quote includes two rounds of revisions. Additional revisions will incur a cost.

On project completion, I will send a final invoice to be paid within seven days.
