Do you have any knowledge of my industry?
Possibly! I have worked in a variety of fields, some of which are personal passions of mine, and others are simply things I am now interested in because I had the pleasure of working on those subjects for my clients. Here are some examples: outdoor retail, public health, book marketing, environmental sustainability, local cuisine, LGBTQ+ rights, podcasting, and more.
Why hire a freelancer like you instead of an agency?
I've worked in an agency before and I know how attractive it can be to have a "one stop shop" for everything you need, but that often comes at a high cost and with less of a personal touch. I don't have a big office or overhead, so I can pass those cost savings on to you along with my personal one-on-one attention.
Can you provide a free sample of your work?
No, but you're welcome to view my portfolio for examples of my work to see examples of what I can do. If you are interested in working with me, use the form below to get in touch and we can talk more about your project. If you still want specific examples of how I might approach your specific project I can do so for a small consulting fee.
Will I need to sign a contract to work with you?
Yes. Contracts for freelance work protect us both and will ensure we are both on the same page in terms of expectations, deliverables, fees, and due dates.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes. If we are working together long-term, the first month is due up front, with the remainder billed on the last day of each month with net-15 terms. If we are working on a short-term project together, 50% of the agreed upon fee is due at the start of the project with the remaining 50% billed upon completion of the project and billed on net-15 terms.
I need help ASAP...are you free?
Possibly! Current clients always receive priority, but I am always open to discussing new projects. If I happen to be booked up I can often squeeze you in with a rush fee added to your invoice if your timeline requires me to work outside my regular business hours.
Do you work with small business or big companies?
Both..and everything in between! That's the magic of being a freelancer. I am agile and experienced with a wide spectrum of businesses. I love working with small business, nonprofits, and entrepreneurs, but I also love working with big companies and foundations. They each come with their own unique pros and challenges, and that's part of the fun!
What is your hourly rate?
My rate changes, depending upon your specific needs and circumstances. If we are working on a long-term or large project I prefer to bill an agreed upon flat fee as that is easier and more beneficial to both of us in the long run. Contact me below to share more about your project to find out more.
