Every project is different, but they all share a similar predictable process:
1. Have a chat
First things first, we get to know each other a little bit: this might be over the phone, via email, telegram or skype. Just a chance to ask a few questions about your product or service, the audience and objectives, timelines, and tone of voice: everything I need to price the project and start work.
2. Seal the deal
To help make sure we are on the same page, I type up a proposal including:
- Project quote
- My earliest available start date
- Details of anything I might need from you
- An itemized list of deliverables
- A contract for you to sign, and an invoice for a 50% deposit.
3. Get down to business
At this stage, I retreat to my office and learn everything there is know about your company. This might involve talking to your product, sales and customer services teams, and reviewing your customer feedback — all so that I can better understand how to appeal to your customers.
Once the research is done, I take my notes and write – keeping you updated every step of the way.
4. Launch the copy
Once I have a first draft, I will send it over via email or Google Docs. You can then review my work, and let know if any revisions need making. If you prefer, we can review your feedback together over the phone.
I tend to include two rounds of revisions at no extra cost, so you don’t have to worry about project fees rising beyond your budget. Once you’ve got a draft you’re happy with, I send an invoice for the final 50%.
