Working with a freelance writer doesn’t have to be scary.
Whether you’ve worked with a freelancer before or are brand-new to the “let’s hire a freelancer” club, I’m here to help you answer all the “what if” questions you may have.
If you don’t find an answer to your question – or if you simply want more information – please contact me here or send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
What do you expect from your clients?
Since we’re working on the same team toward the same goals, my expectations of my clients are that we work together to help make you successful. In addition to the information gathered at our kickoff meeting, I may need additional feedback to provide the best quality content. That means when we agree on deadlines or have mutual contractual obligations, you and I both respect that and participate in the process.
What is your turnaround time?
During our initial conversation, we’ll discuss scheduling requirements and a proposed deadline. If my calendar allows me to complete your project by your deadline, our discussion will continue to see if my services are a good fit to help you solve the problems you are facing. As for most projects, my typical turnaround time is 7 to 14 days.
Have you worked under tight deadlines?
The answer to this question is a resounding YES! While I’m often booked a few weeks to a month in advance, I can squeeze in some projects in-between and will always meet agreed-upon deadlines. What this means is the sooner you can brief me, sign the Client Services Agreement, and send the deposit payment, the better! Creating high-quality content while meeting deadlines is my top priority. If you need a quick turnaround for a project, don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss the possibilities of completion.
How much do you charge?
Being transparent in pricing is a key factor for building trust in a business relationship. Because I don’t offer typical off-the-shelf services – I prefer to cater to individual business needs rather than sell you short with a pre-packaged product – I offer individual quotes based on project specifications.
What are some ways you optimize content for SEO?
As Inbound Certified by Hubspot, I know that when the content is primarily published online, the quality of that content is what matters. Though I do maximize for SEO, too. How it’s done depends on the type of project but, generally, I focus on long-tail keywords, attention-grabbing headlines, reputable internal and external links to build credibility with your target audience, and maximize location for on-page SEO.
Why do you only offer two revisions?
The initial project discussions are followed by an in-depth project kickoff meeting that includes a thorough examination of your project needs and desires. One revision is sometimes requested; however, I provide two to ensure the content meets and exceeds your high-quality standards.
