How I Work
Whatever your reason for inquiring about my service, you want to know about the writer before you hire him. If we were sitting face-to-face in your office chatting, you’d ask me questions. Let me take a moment to answer some of those questions right here.
“How much do you charge?”
For any writing assignment – feature article, brochure, newsletter, white paper – let me know what you have in mind and I’ll quote you a price.
“What are your qualifications?”
My professional writing background includes, but is not limited to, brochures, articles, press releases, white papers, web sites, newsletters and other marketing materials clients need to sell their products and services. Prior to becoming an independent freelance writer, I was a logistics manager, public relations coordinator and patient satisfaction representative for the William Beaumont Hospital Health System in Royal Oak, Michigan, a national leader in health care services.
As a public relations coordinator, I served as the ghost writer to the President & CEO of the William Beaumont Hospital Health System on all internal and external communications. In addition, I was a contributing writer and coordinator of several ABC-TV and NBC-TV news stories and have collaborated on numerous research projects and publications. I earned a B.A. in English from the Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan and have been certified by the William Beaumont Hospital Health System and Mayo Clinic in service excellence.
“What kind of assignments do you handle?”
A majority of my experience is writing brochures, case histories, essays, feature articles, newsletters, press releases and white papers. My specialty is my ability to write clear, credible and persuasive copy about a wide range of business services, from the simple to highly complex subjects. I am able to quickly grasp and organize elaborate and sophisticated business and marketing materials on a variety of topics. What’s more, you’ll appreciate that I can sit down with CEO’s and other high level business professionals, physicians, lawyers and ask intelligent questions and speak their language.
“How long will it take you to write my copy?”
Ideally I like one to three weeks to work on your copy. That gives me time to polish, edit and revise until I’m happy with every word. However, I realize that you can’t always wait that long. So if the job is a rush, just tell the date by which you must receive the copy. I guarantee that you will have the copy on your desk by this date – or sooner. No matter the deadline, the copy I submit to you will be right.
“What happens if we want you to revise the copy?”
Just tell me what you want improved and what the changes are, and I’ll make the changes – fast. There is no charge for rewriting. Revisions are included in the flat fee we agreed to, provided they are assigned within 30 days of your receipt of the copy and are not based on a change in the assignment after the copy has been submitted. But, if you are not 100 percent satisfied, I will revise the copy according to your specific guidelines – and at my expense.
“How do we take the next step?”
Just tell me what you have in mind. Send me your brochure or any other literature that will give me the background information I need to write your copy. But don’t worry about organizing anything. I’ll do that. If I have any questions, I’ll contact you. When you give me the go-ahead, I’ll begin writing the assignment immediately. You will receive your copy on or before the deadline date. And remember, it is guaranteed to please you.
If you have an immediate need call me right now or fax me the details. There is no charge for me to discuss your job with you and give you a cost estimate…and no obligation to buy.
