Your content services will work like magic, but your rates and what to expect will be transparent and clearly laid out from the start. With The Write Content Alchemist, you’ll never have to wonder what or when you’ll be charged or when you’ll receive project updates and other important documents.
The 10-step process I like to use is detailed here for your convenience and so you know what to expect in advance, but don’t worry about remembering all of it or following all of it. We’ll work together to figure things out and what works best, and you’ll always be notified of important dates, documents, and billing information.
And you can always contact me with questions or concerns any time during this process.
10-Step Process to Gold Content
Submit a Request for a Free Estimate.
Receive your estimate within 1-2 business days via Wave.
After you approve an estimate and want to place an order, you’ll receive a short survey form to fill out detailing your content requirements, and what you want to include or exclude. For instance, you might have certain keywords or style guides you want to use or certain branding guidelines you want to follow.
If applicable, you can submit any helpful or necessary supplemental materials for your order including things like documents or links for material to be edited or proofread, market research, control copy, customer profiles, customer data, etc.
We’ll touch base via phone, Zoom, or in person.
I love using the internet to conduct business, but I’m not a robot and I know you’re not either. So let’s touch base over the phone or through a video meeting in Zoom for a quick get-to-know-you chat, and to solidify your content requirements before work begins on your order. This can be as quick as fifteen minutes or as long as an hour. And if you’re in the Denver metro area, we can even meet for coffee if you prefer.
For orders over $500 and ongoing work, you’ll receive an electronic statement of work (SOW) to sign. It will detail the parameters and scope of the content project, as well as installment amounts due. An initial deposit we agree upon (outlined in the SOW) will be due at this time before work can start.
For orders over $250 and under $500 — 50% of the invoice will be due at this time before work can begin on your order. For instance, if your order totals $300, then $150 will be due before work can start.
Work starts on your order.
For content projects with multiple steps spanning more than 10-15 business days, you’ll automatically receive weekly project status updates. You can always update the frequency of these updates later on if you prefer.
You receive your order deliverables via email or project platform designated beforehand by the agreed upon due date.
Any necessary edits or rewrites are completed.
Work is complete and your remaining balance is due if there is one.
