Blog Writing:

I love talking about mental health and wellbeing and writing blogs gives me the chance to do that. I think that words can be extremely powerful and we often don’t know or realise just how much of an effect they can have.

A really good blog for your business can reach a lot of people, but I do recognise that many people feel like they aren’t very good at expressing themselves on paper or simply don’t have the time to write them. That’s where I come in. I can help you say what it is you want to say, spread the word about your business while you spend the time doing what it is you love doing.

Blogs will be between 400 and 800 words. If you require a blog longer than that or the topic is something that needs extensive research an additional charge will be applied but this will always be discussed beforehand. Discounts do apply if you would like multiple blogs.

1 blog – £120

2 blogs – £220

3 blogs – £300

Content Creation:

Website Copy:

If you need new website copy or would like to brush up your marketing materials then I’m just the person to help! I can work with you to make sure that your website really reflects you and your personality and ensure that it tells the reader exactly what it is you do. Your website can be someone’s first impression of you so you want to make sure it’s a great one.

Training Materials: 

With so many people having used the past year to create training courses, you want to make sure that yours is the best out there. I can help you put together the wordy part of the course or just look over what you already have to ensure that it’s easy to follow and error-free!

These would either be charged at the day rate of £300 or the half day rate of £150, depending on the size of the project.

Proofreading & Editing

Mistakes happen to the best of us but isn’t it really annoying when you think you’ve checked something a million times and you see some errors after you’ve posted. Or worse, printed on actual paper! This is where a second pair of eyes can come in really handy. I’m one of those annoying people who can spot mistakes a mile away (although I do still manage to on occasion make some of my own) so I’m the perfect person to double check your work!

I can do a complete audit of your website looking for spelling and grammar mistakes alone or check out the readability and flow. I can also check over any blogs you’ve written before you post them or any other materials you have.

Prices will vary according to website size, length of blogs and exactly what it is you’d like me to check. All prices will be agreed by both parties before the work is carried out.

 

Website Audit: Prices start from £50 per page.

Blogs – Grammar and Spelling Only: from £50

Blogs – Grammar, Spelling & Editing/Readability: from £80

Bespoke Training for Blog Writing

 

If, for whatever reason, you aren’t ready to outsource your blogs or other copy/content work, let me teach you how to do it yourself. I offer 2 hour online sessions, during which I will:

  • Help you work out who your audience is.
  • Work with you to find out what you want to talk about.
  • Give you advice and guidance on structure and content.
  • Help you create a plan of potential blogs to write.
  • Help you decide what kind of content will be most valuable to you (i.e., blogs, newsletter, social media).
  • Help you get started with writing a piece of content!

I will also proofread one piece of work for you, that you create after the session. If you would prefer an in-person workshop that can be arranged, depending on location, I’m based in the North East of England. Longer or shorter sessions can also be arranged.

How it works:
Prior to the session you would let me know what it is that you’re struggling with. I will then prepare a workshop with clear objectives specially designed to meet your needs. After the session I will send you a summary of what was covered as well as the recording for you to refer back to if you would like it.

I feel that transparency and communication are key in any business relationship, so I will always work within your budget and will be upfront and honest about what I can get done for the price agreed in the timescale required.

If you’re not sure what it is you need or how I can help, then I do offer a free 1-hour consultation. We can chat about your needs, your budget and any time requirements you may have. If, after the chat, you feel like I’m not the right person for you and your business then we can happily go our separate ways.

My job is to make your life simpler, not more complicated, so if you like what you’ve read so far then do get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.
