These hourly rates are based on my 15+ years of experience with content and social media marketing programs, my skills as a writer and my ability to turn around clean copy quickly. They reflect not only the time spent writing and creating but also researching and collecting the necessary information.
I prefer to work with hourly rates because it allows me to more effectively and fairly bill my time. In my experience flat fees mean I don’t fully communicate my value and you don’t understand the full costs of the requests you’re making.
- Standard delivery window is seven business days.
- Expedited delivery = standard rate plus 15%.
- Discounts are available for clients signing two or more months of work on a single contract or who hire me for two or more services on a single contract.
- At project inception, a scope of work will be provided that lists deliverables, the work necessary, agreed-upon rates and a timeline for completion. Any changes to this initial scope will require a change order and may incur additional charges.
- Invoices will be sent at the end of the month or, if requested, upon completion of the project.
- Payment is expected within 30 days of the invoice being received unless otherwise specified. Payment will be accepted by check, direct deposit, PayPal or Venmo, with the method specified at the project’s outset.
