Here’s a list of the things that I won’t do when it comes to my freelance work.
Promote your resource or product.
Thank you so much, but promotion is just not a good fit for me or for this site.
Write press releases.
No. I’m not good at it and I don’t like it.
Handle public relations.
No, not anymore.
Do your social media stuff.
No, you do you.
Write on spec or send you a free customised writing sample.
No. This is a waste of my time and I value my time.
Take little/no pay because I will get great exposure.
No. I don’t work for free anymore. This is not an appealing offer.
Haggle with you over my rates.
No. I give you my rates, then you take ’em or leave ’em.
Give you free revisions for the work that I have completed for you.
No. For most projects I will include a couple of revisions. Anything over and above what is included is chargeable.
Send you a free writing sample to prove I’m qualified.
Rewrite the stuff you wrote that “just needs a little polishing, honest“, for half my normal rate.
Promote the posts I write for you.
Other than sharing links in my newsletter, I do not offer any other promotional services.
Note: if you want a writer to do the writing and formatting and editing and also all the promotional work of marketing which is NOT the same as writing, then what you actually want is a content marketing manager and a writer.
Promote your product or service or tool or app or what-have-you on this site.
I know I already said this, but I still get lots of emails asking. So I’m saying it again. I’m not going to share the guide or resource or infographic or ebook. Thank you and good night.
