Business writers charge for their services in so many ways that it’s impossible to directly compare prices.
That’s why I’m encouraging you not to.
Instead, let’s talk – one on one – about the value that my decades of writing, training, and consulting can bring to your business. To start the dialogue, I’ve laid out a few basic facts in the form of questions and answers. After you’ve had a chance to digest them, please contact me. We’ll schedule a free, no-obligation consultation to address your questions, expectations, and specific writing needs.
Q: What’s your basic rate?
A: $60 an hour.
Q: Do you charge different rates for different types of writing services?
A: No. It’s too confusing to the client, and doesn’t accurately reflect the nature of the work. I also don’t charge different rates for small, medium, or large businesses – although it’s common to do so.
Q: Why should I hire a senior writer when I only need to have a little copy written?
A: The smallest job may hold the key to your next business success. Why not benefit from my years of experience and refined skills?
Q: How can you price this job without knowing how many hours you’re going to spend writing?
A: After we’ve agreed on the scope of work, I’ll give you an estimate. If you wish, I’ll also put a Not To Exceed clause in our contract that will cap the amount of money that you will pay.
