No doubt you’re wondering what it’s like to work with me and what I can offer for you and your business so here are the answers to some of the questions you may have:
Do I Have to Commit to Regular Posts?
Most of my clients want regular blog content to strengthen their online presence but if you only need a one off post, this is fine too.
Can You Write Regular Blog Posts for Me?
I can write regular blog posts on a monthly, fortnightly or weekly basis depending on your needs. Just let me know how regularly you think you’ll need new content and I’ll do my best to fit this into my schedule!
Will You Come Up With Ideas for New Posts for Me?
If you don’t have particular ideas in mind for new posts that you’d like me to write for your blog, I’m very happy to come up with some for you to choose from but I do charge slightly more for the extra time this takes.
If you just need me to write the content and already have the ideas in your head, just let me know your thoughts and we can go from there.
How Will You Make the Posts Sound Like Me?
If you’ve previously written posts and have had to let that slide due to lack of time and other factors, I can use these to get as close to your natural writing style as possible so that future posts sound as though you’ve merely picked up where you left off.
If we’re starting from scratch with your blog content, we can have a chat about how you’d like to come across in the posts and the style you feel most reflects your personality, and I’ll write in that style.
Either way, we can work together to make sure that the posts sound like you and that you’re completely comfortable with them going live in your name before you accept them.
How Will You Make My Content Unique?
As I’m working with a number of clients in a few select areas, you may worry that I’ll end up covering the same topics and that it’ll be hard to make sure that your content is unique enough. After all, there’s only so much you can say about some topics without rehashing everything that has been said before!
Here’s how it’ll work with us: If you come to me with a topic and I’ve covered much the same angle with another client, I’ll suggest ways that we can adjust the idea so that it’s more unique. This may be a different approach to the topic, for example. Adding in some of your personal experiences (either with clients or your own experience with a particular topic) can really help with this too as it’s unlikely that anyone else will have exactly the same take, even on a popular topic.
Will You Work With My Competitors?
If you’re primarily working with local clients, my policy is this: I agree not to take on any of your direct competitors while we’re working together – especially if you’re wanting more than a one off post from me.
When Will You Send Me New Posts?
In most cases, we’ll agree a particular day for me to send new posts through to you – either once a month or more regularly, depending on how much content you need.
When we first start working together, I’ll let you know what my availability is looking like and when I can get the first post to you and we can either keep to a similar schedule for new posts or agree a new day(s) to send posts through.
How Often Do I Pay You?
If you’re only needing one post per month, it’s most likely that we’ll agree for me to invoice on a monthly basis after this post has been written and approved by you.
If you’re wanting content more regularly than this (e.g. 2-4 posts per month), I can also invoice once per month for all of these posts to make things easier for you to keep track of. Or if you prefer to pay for each post as soon as they’re written and approved, we can do this too.
As I’m sure you understand, I’ll need to receive payment for an approved post before I start working on the next one for you.
How Do I Pay You?
Most of my clients pay via Paypal or bank transfer but I’m open to other payment options if these aren’t convenient for you.
Will People Know We’re Working Together?
Most of the posts I write are ghostwritten and appear in the client’s name. I don’t use these on my website or mention any of my ghostwriting clients by name (either on my website or on social media) so as far as the rest of the world is concerned, all of your posts are written entirely by you!
I often retweet and share interesting content on social media from people working in the niches I write in (both publications and professionals). I retweet from a number of sources so it won’t be immediately obvious that we have any connection but just let me know if you’d prefer me not to retweet anything you post on social media once we’ve started working together.
