The road to success is paved with a good brief and a solid process.
We'll kick off our journey with me taking some basic project information from you, as well as some background on your business and brand. This is all done via my briefing form, which will be emailed to you.
Based on what you’ve told me and what I think you'll need, I’ll scope up your job. I’ll send you a proposal outlining the objectives, deliverables, timeframes and pricing for the job. I'll also send across my terms and conditions.
We go over the project proposal on the phone to make sure all you’ve asked for has been included - and to ensure we're all on the same page.
Once the proposal has been accepted and my deposit invoice is paid, you will be booked in. I like to schedule work at least 14 days in advance.
Before I start to write, I gain an understanding of your business from the target market’s point of view and ensure I’m familiar with your competitors and your industry. If you've had any professional market research done, I'd love to see it at this point. I can do the majority of this research from my desk, but if you’re not too far away, it’s often good to meet up for a coffee to make sure I have a really good feel for your business and what you're trying to achieve.
Writing & editing
You'll receive a first draft, second draft and final draft. This gives us two chances to get things just right - which is usually plenty. Proofreading will be done on the final draft, so don't be alarmed if you spot a typo or two in the first draft. Additional rounds will be charged at an hourly rate and if the brief changes part way through, I’ll give you a variation.
You'll need to set aside time for you and any of your colleagues to review and sign off the materials. For each draft, one to two weeks is ideal to keep the project fresh in my mind. Once the work has been finalised and the final invoice has been paid, I hand over the copyright to you and we all start off on our next adventure.
If you're looking for someone who's willing to get to know your business, project or product, I'd be delighted to work with you.
