Understanding Your Project

Good writing is a valuable commodity.  Good branding is imperative if you want to succeed and grow. 

 

We work hard to provide you with powerful and refreshingly straightforward language to meet your professional, personal, and creative needs. We can't give our services away, but we aren't in the market for your firstborn child either.

 

The simple truth is that your investment is going to vary according to your particular need.  Our estimates take into account:

 

  • deadlines

  • information that you provide vs. additional research on our side

  • the type of writing service you require

  • ancillary design, formatting, and hosting needs

  • the project's duration

 

Just to name a few.  In addition to saving you time and helping you make money, we know that one of the best things we can do is eliminate surprises.  Send us a quick email (laura@stuartholladay.com) and we will be happy to provide a ballpark idea of the investment you can expect to make for quality writing services. Then we encourage you to shop around and compare.  There are a lot of options out there and it's important to find the right match for you. 

 

Of course, if you are ready to get down to brass tacks and throw some specifics our way, go ahead and request a free estimate.  We can't wait to get to work.

If you have questions about services, or our process, please email us anytime. Really. Tell us what's on your mind. It helps us continue to grow and stay on the cutting edge of our very cool and ever-evolving trade.

(No obligations.)

(No annoying badgering or spamming.)

(Just a conversation about you and the things you really need to thrive.)

A few things to keep in mind . . .

Payment by credit card or checking account is easy and secure with Google Wallet and Paypal.

Response Time and Project Turnaround

Most jobs are needed yesterday. We get that. We'll respond to your request within 24 hours. If we need more information, we'll ask. But really getting it right takes time. Most jobs take 1- 4 weeks to complete (once they are on the schedule). Some take less than a day. We outline each step of the process in our free, no-obligation estimate so you know exactly what to expect, and when to expect it. 

 

Privacy (and Sanity)

We're writers, not e-mail address peddlers. We hate spam almost as much as abuse of the past perfect tense. Your information is private and will never be sold/given/lent to anyone. Any personal writing service we do for you is kept confidential. Period. 

 

Rates and Payment

Services are priced at an hourly rate or a flat rate, depending on what they entail. A cover letter, for example, is a very different animal than an original web page with SEO and is priced differently. We believe writing shouldn't cost a fortune and have worked hard to keep our rates reasonable. Payment is made online through Paypal or Google Wallet.  50% is due upon your approval of the estimate and the other 50% is due when we complete your project.  Flexible payment options are available for certain services. If your writing needs are ongoing, we are happy to set up a contract schedule. 

 

Size and Scope

No job is too small. Seriously. Have something that is just about perfect, but needs a discerning pair of eyes to give it a once-over? We love polishing. At the same time, we would be thrilled to write your memoirs for you. We are a small shop with a bespoke attitude and an adventurous spirit. We have a few specialties, but can write about almost any subject. Go ahead, try us. We think you'll be glad you did.
