Are you ready to take your content marketing and blogging efforts to the next level? If you need help with writing customer stories, case studies, white papers, feature articles, blog posts, press releases and more, check out my writing services. Here are some examples of the work people hire me to do and the rates I typically charge. When we agree on the exact scope of the project, I will quote a flat fee for your project before we start work, so you will know exactly what you have to pay – no last minute changes.
Primary Writing Services
Blog posts/web content/e-newsletter articles – Guide price $350-450 per post. Blog posts are a great way to inform or entertain your customers and convert casual visitors to raving fans. And it’s always a good idea to freshen up your image so people know about your mission, your vision and what you offer. I especially love writing about business topics, web tools, social media and tech issues, but I’m versatile. My work has appeared on IBM Midsize Insider, the Content Standard, Ragan PR Daily, Unbounce, Crazy Egg and many, many other publications. I write for humans first, but always pay attention to SEO. This rate covers writing only (ask if you need me to supply images or respond to comments.) Ask me for a customized quote or hire me to write your blog content.
“Sharon is a prolific writer and can write on a very broad range of topics. She has written on topics from health to money. We especially appreciate her articles on business. She has also conducted interviews for us, one in particular was done by phone with a woman located in another country…I have enjoyed working with Sharon, she is a wonderful person and loves writing! I highly recommend Sharon and plan to hire her again.” – Carol Doyel, Editor in Chief, Living Better at 50+
Feature writing/interviews – Feature articles are a great way to promote your business with content you can show off to customers or submit to industry magazines. I’m an experienced journalist (I wrote my first piece about 25 years ago) and love interviewing people and turning what they say into appealing articles. Here’s an example. Hire me to write a feature article.
“Sharon interviewed me for her blog and wrote about my company one more time in another blog a year later. Definitely a highly skilled professional writer who has the ability to focus on what is really important for the reader, thanks to her deep understanding of the online medium, internet services and tools and the subjects she covers in her articles.” – Luca Filigheddu, CEO, Twimbow
E-books – Starts at $1,000 (where you supply the outline and general guidelines). Want to get your customers’ attention? Give them a free ebook as a reward for joining your mailing list. I can write an ebook on almost any topic (though my favorite topics revolve around web, social media, business, technology and writing.) If you want me to come up with the whole concept, it will cost a little more (say, a couple of hours of research time). Hire me to write your ebook.
“I’ve worked with Sharon for a couple of years now on different projects and her articles are always knowledgeable, of a very high quality and require no editing. Sharon’s a superb writer – she comes very highly recommended by me.” – Charles Cridland
Customer stories/case studies – Guide price $3,000-$4,000 – including formulating questions, conducting multiple interviews, research, writing, editing, revisions and advice on graphics. Hire me to write your customer stories.
Business reports/white papers – Guide price $3,000 – 10 pages. Business reports and white papers are an excellent tool for building authority in your niche and showing people the value of your services. I’ll find the latest research and statistics and present your case in a clear, concise way. Hire me to write a report or white paper.
Package of blogging/writing services – please contact me to discuss a customized quotation. All blogging contracts are invoiced at the start of the month and run for a minimum of three months. Hire me to write your content.
Writing web copy – $750 for a package including a home, about and services page. If you want to tell your story but don’t quite know what to say, then I’m your woman. This service includes a Skype or email client interview, keyword research and web optimization. Here’s an example of an about page I wrote for a cake designer. Hire me to write for you.
” I feel that even with the limited amount of information I provided, you really hit the nail on the head with the overall image I am trying to portray. Even the first draft gave me the impression you’ve written about the food industry before and your standard of work made me feel so very relaxed about that part of my website design. Also the meetings were lots of fun, filled with lots of laughs and very relaxed.” – Annalise Nuttall-Benskin

Why You Need a Professional Writer
According to the Content Marketing Institute, blogging is one of the most used forms of content marketing. That’s because companies that blog attract more website visitors and more leads than those that don’t. And there are a lot of other benefits too. A professionally written company blog will help you to:
- build authority with your target customers with well written and well researched content in your niche
- make you a go-to information resource for your industry peers and customers
- increase search engine visibility for your website and business
- drive traffic and create backlinks to your website
- tell your story in your voice
- provide a killer resource to attract your customers
- and more (just ask if you want your content to do something else that’s not included in this list).
To achieve these business benefits, you need to hire a professional. That’s where I come in. I love writing and I’d love to help you. Please contact me to discuss your writing needs.
