Frequently Asked Questions
I’m sure you have questions about the writing services I provide. As such, I have put together a series of FAQs that may help you make a decision. If your question is not covered below why not drop me a message here.
What’s your level of experience?
I started in business as a sole trader in 2000 at age 25 and built the business to 25 people, securing contracts with US Government up to €500k. We also carried out projects for international corporations such as Intel, Aldo Groupe, DB Schenker and Robert Roberts. I conducted all the business marketing both on and off line during this time. In 2014 I left the business to focus on my writing and provision of business and marketing support to SMEs.
On what topics can you create content?
I can create content on a variety of subjects. Primarily, I deliver my best work in the following areas;
- Science & Technology
- Psychology, philosophy, personal development, self-help
- WordPress How-to
- Digital marketing strategy & tools
Want to know if I can help you?
Can I hire you as a consultant?
Yes, you can. Often, businesses do not have a budget for content creation in the early stages of development, I understand that. I can meet with you and advise on how to build an SEO strategy and content marketing strategy to get you off the ground. Rates will depend on how much you already know and how often you need my input. As a rule of thumb, once per month is a very affordable €195.00 per month which includes 2 hours in-person or Skype call + direct email access to me.
Can you help me with SEO?
Yes, I can create/edit content for SEO. However, for technical SEO you will need to have a separate provider or I can refer you to a suitable third party.
Do you provide budget or low cost content?
I’m afraid not. Best you visit Fiverr for that. I focus my time and effort on producing high quality, detailed and original content for you and your readers. Cheap and nasty is just not my bag, sorry.
How long does it take you to turn around an article?
That depends on how much research and detail is required, and the frequency you require articles produced. Generally, I will agree a time and date with you in advance for all content and I will deliver on that time and date or you get the article for free.
How long are the articles you write?
I will write articles however long or short you need them to get your message across. By way of advice, I would suggest anything less that 500 words don’t really cut it. In fact, you should really consider producing articles over 1000 words in order to bring value to the reader. Articles of value to the reader should, for example, deliver a breakdown of a given process to help the reader implement a strategy or perform carry out a task. Always be teaching. Always be willing to give away what you know for free.
Do you provide social media posting and scheduling?
It’s not a primary service, however, I can assign one of my people to run daily campaigns for you. The cost for social media scheduling depends on your specific requirements and start at €129.00 per month for set-up am implementation.
How does your service work?
This depends on whether we engage for an extended period under a retainer arrangement or only a one-off project. Generally, for lengthy projects, we will use Slack to exchange ideas and trash out concepts. In all cases, payment for services will be invoiced and required to be settled in advance.
Here’s how we would work;
- You fill out the no-obligation business request form.
- I contact you within 12 to 24 hours to arrange a Skype call or face to face meeting.
- We discuss your business needs and establish your expectations.
- I issue you a proposal outlining my understanding and commitment.
- On acceptance, you make a once-off payment for the service in advance (or monthly in advance).
- I commence some preliminary research and we then set a date for commencement. During this process, we will stay in touch using Slack. Email is no good for managing the project.
- At the end of each session, I will give you tasks to complete before our next session. I will also have tasks to complete for you. Completion of these tasks is vital for progression.
How do I receive your content submissions?
If you have a site built on WordPress or other CMS then all you need to do is set me up with an Editor login and I’ll write/edit drafts for you to review and publish at your own discretion. If you don’t have a backend CMS for your website I can write/edit your content in Google Docs or Word and email to you.
How do you accept payment?
I accept payment via Stripe and all services are required to be settled monthly in advance where services are retained, and per project in advance where you hire me for a single project. Invoices are issued to your accounts nominated email address automatically.
How much does your service cost?
The costs vary depending on your needs. However, as a guide, a once-off 2-hour session is €190.00 ex VAT. One thing to keep in mind is that I don’t negotiate my rates and I don’t do cheap and nasty – I do quality. So if quality and attention to detail are what you are after then you’re in the right place. Check out my Schedule of Rates.
What are your terms of service?
My terms of service are pretty detailed. I like detail you see, and that should make you happy because I apply the same level of detail to all my work. If you like attention to detail then we’ll work well together. My terms of service are in place to ensure that you get a project delivered as per my commitment, and that we both get a mutually acceptable means of working together.
