Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What do I get if I hire you as our marketing consultant?

What do you need to grow your business? Each client and business is different. In the past, we’ve provided clients with market research, reports to help their marketing teams craft their own strategy, tactical plans to reach customers, product and price suggestions, editorial guidelines, content calendars, one-day seminars on SEO, and…the list goes on. We’re flexible. We want you to achieve your goals. We’re here to provide you with the best marketing work we know how to give. We discuss every project fully, provide a detailed, written estimate, and include milestones and objectives before you contact for our services.

What do you charg

The cost for your project will be determined after we’ve had a chance to get to know one another and estimate how long it will take to complete what’s needed for your success. Writing projects are quoted on a per-project fee, which means one price for the research and writing (no hidden fees). Our monthly retainer, in which agencies hire Jeanne to manage their marketing, writing, or client success teams starts at $5,000 per month. 

What is your process for working together?

A marketing project always begins with a conversation. Just that – a conversation. Let’s get to know each other first. I encourage you to follow my blog, connect on LinkedIn, and subscribe to our quarterly emails so you can get to know us better. We provide you with a detailed project proposal that includes restating the problem you want solved, the methods we plan to use to solve it, the timeline, milestones, and costs. If you’re ready to begin work, we start quickly once a deposit is received. We connect frequently via email, phone calls, or Skype with our clients and accept clients worldwide.

What is the process of working together on my writing project?

The process begins when you contact me for an estimate. I will have many questions for you about your project so that I understand exactly what you would like to accomplish. Once we agree on a price, I will send you a simple contract. The signed contract initiates the project. I’ll ask you to send over plenty of background information to help the project be successful. This may include previously used materials, product brochures, brand style guides, etc. I provide you with drafts of materials in Microsoft Word or Google Documents and request written feedback. We may go back and forth several times, providing feedback and clarifying information, until the project is just what you want. I then send you a final document for you to send to your graphic designer or publish to your website. 

Wait! Isn’t graphic design included?

Graphic design and artistic direction are separate disciplines and gifts. Alas, I do not have those gifts (I can’t even draw a decent stick figure.) I do, however, have many wonderful graphic designers, web designers, and programmers that I can call upon to design your materials. It’s not included in my writing prices but can be quoted separately and I can manage the project from start to finish. 

Do you offer any guarantees?

I offer a guarantee that you will be happy with your project and that I will work hard to make sure it is the best writing possible. I cannot guarantee the success of any project; there are too many factors involved in any marketing endeavor to make a guarantee possible. 

What payment methods do you accept?

I accept business checks, PayPal, and direct bank deposits. All payments are made to my corporate accounts. I send clients invoices at the end of each month for work completed during the month. All terms are Net 30.

Can you write my book for me?

I’m sorry but I do not accept book projects such as ghostwriting novels or fiction. I can put you in touch with other writers who may be able to help you.

Do you provide editing or proofreading services?

No, we no longer provide editing or proofreading services.
