Primary Writing Services
Note: I accept very few freelance projects these days, but when I do, here’s an idea of the writing services I offer:
Do you want to reach your customers and peers with authentic anti-racism content? Are you looking for a professional to deliver the content recommended by your DEI strategist? If so, you’re in the right place. I help with writing articles, blog posts, and white papers for socially conscious companies and organizations. (I’m an expert in writing for B2B and SaaS companies, too.) Here are the writing services I offer.
NB: These are typical rates, but we’ll agree on a project fee when I know the exact scope of the project. I also offer discounts for substantial contracts paid on an advance retainer basis – ask me for details.
Guide price $1,200 – one interview source; final article 900-1000 words
As a former journalist, I’m happy to create content for you based on interviews. This can be a customer story, case study, or feature article. In addition to the standard rate for writing an article, there will be an additional charge for interview and transcription time.
“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, PaperLit
Business white papers/ebooks
Guide price: $3,000 – 2,000 words
Want to share your expertise or generate leads for your business? Give potential customers a free white paper or ebook that solves a problem for them as a reward for joining your mailing list.
The above guide price applies if you supply the outline and general guidelines. 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).
“Not only is Sharon a solid writer, who produces high quality work with little need for feedback or iterations, she is also timely and consistent (even when I dropped the ball in communication!). I enjoyed working with Sharon so much, and really trusted that she will produce good results, to the point that we immediately asked her to write our next ebook once she completed the first. Cannot recommend her highly enough!” – Sara Cate Jones, Demand Generation Manager, GoLinks
Guide price $1000 per 750-word post
Blog posts are a great way to:
- Educate your customers about your corporate social responsibility initiatives
- Share information about your products and services
- Help your customers solve their burning issues
- Convert casual visitors to raving fans
- Build brand awareness so people know about what you offer
- Create content that you can repurpose to other content formats
I especially love writing about anti-racism, diversity and belonging issues, but I also cover small business and digital marketing topics.
“Sharon has successfully completed a number of important business content assignments for us. She regularly handles various types of writing and numerous topics professionally. I’m particularly impressed with both her results and reliability. Sharon never misses a deadline. When I give her an assignment, I can be assured it’s as good as done!” – Laura Spencer, Associate Business Editor, Envato Tuts+
My work has appeared on Amex, Square, Taboola, Jilt, OptinMonster, CrazyEgg and many, many other sites and publications. I write for humans first, but always pay attention to SEO.
Note: This rate covers writing only (ask if you need me to supply images or respond to comments.)
“Sharon is a prolific writer and can write on a very broad range of topics. I highly recommend Sharon and plan to hire her again.” – Carol Doyel, Editor in Chief, Living Better at 50+
