Here are a few questions I get about my services.
- OK. so how much is this gonna cost me? Well, it depends on a few things: your project’s budget, the amount of time it will take to complete the project, and, generally, how much work is involved. Typically I charge by the hour, but in some instances I’ll charge by the project.
- How long does it take? Again, this depends on the project. A short press release won’t take very long, but writing blog posts may take a few hours and putting together a media relations campaign or doing some research/fact-checking could take much longer than that.
- Can you do this project for me for free? You’ll get exposure! Well, unfortunately, I cannot take on “free” projects. This is one of the few means of income for me, and it helps pay my rent and buy groceries and, on occasion, have fun. Writing is a skill I’ve worked very hard to achieve, and I’ve spent many years putting time and effort into getting better and better. But the good news is, whatever you spend, I want you to say, “Wow, that was totally worth it.” That would make my day.
- Do you take photos for blog posts and other projects? Yes, I can take some photos, but I am NOT a professional photographer by any means. Years of being a journalist at small, family-run community newspapers has given me a variety of skills, including fairly OK photography skills. Photography may be included at an extra nominal cost. If you need something a little more professional in the photography arena, I know a LOT of professional photographers I can refer you to.
