Clients hire me when they need award-winning creative and copy skills but not the ongoing overhead of a senior-level creative partner. I can work out front with my name on your business card, totally behind the scenes, or somewhere in between the two– on-site or from my office in Columbus, Ohio.

Why I always start with a creative brief

A creative brief is key to avoiding a freelance copy train wreck. Starting with a creative brief is how I work to make sure you’re delighted with the final product. If you don’t have one, I’ll help you create it. Creative briefs ensure clarity about the assignment and get everyone on the same page.

In short, the brief defines the “what” so we can focus on figuring out the “how.”

Billing options

I’m compensated for my work in one of three ways:

  • project  Best for one-off projects such as developing web content or generating ideas for a campaign such as a product launch or a new service roll out. Project engagements require an approved estimate and are billed as follows. Creative/consulting fees are due 50% on initial delivery with balance due 15 days upon delivery of approved content. Payment for jobs under $1,000 are due on delivery.
  • installments  Appropriate for long-term engagements with multiple iterations and phases with the agreed fee paid at the onset of each phase or defined period.
  • retainer contract  Makes sense when the client wants to engage me on a variety of projects for a certain number of hours per week or month, or for recurring activities such as maintaining a company blog or social media postings. Requires either a bi-weekly pay schedule or paid at the start of each month.

Engaging me

Easy-peasy. Just send me an email that briefly outlines what you have in mind, the best method and time to contact you, and we can go from there.
