Why Hire Dan?
Full Disclosure: I really can’t lift a car. And that’s not me anyway.
There are a lot of great reasons to hire me. Here are a few:
The Reason You Came Here.
Bottom line (right here at the top): I’m profitable. Or if the writing you need isn’t revenue-based, I’m going to make it do what you intend.
That’s my job, and I do it well.
I’m proud to say that almost everyone who hires me becomes a repeat customer. Sometimes in three weeks, sometimes in three years. The reason for that is simple: I did what they needed me to do.
Experienced. Professional. Business Writer.
I’m a writer, but I’m also a business pro. This matters to my clients. And it should matter to you.
I know what drives revenue, and understand writing for target markets, conversion, and keeping an effective brand tone for your specific industry and identity.
In other words, I’ve been successfully self-employed for 20+ years, and I speak your language.
Writing That Works.
I can write in many voices: Professional or plain. Country or city. Millennial to Boomer. LinkedIn to TikTok. Long copy, short copy, headlines, descriptions – I do it all.
Besides writing to your audience, I also write to engage. And that’s where the magic really happens.
If the writing scratches a little itch or piques a reader’s interest, that’s when they look harder at that “buy” or “learn more” button. Or get a positive feeling about what they are reading. That’s what you want from your business writing.
Hint: Business writing is usually selling something, even when it isn’t. An internal memo to employees is, at its heart, a sales letter. If they buy in, it worked. If they read it and roll their eyes, well, it kind of failed.
I help readers buy (in).
To expand on this a bit, I have a really good blog post about conversion here. You should definitely read it.
I May Not Agree With You (and That’s Good)
You will get my expertise, perspective, and marketing chops focused to your project. I’m not a starving, unconfident freelancer who will write exactly what you tell me to write because you’re paying me.
I go a lot deeper than “just writing”, and I am a good guy to discuss ideas with. I’ve had clients pivot and change a service/pricing model because I had a better idea. And I’ve also taken money out of my own pocket by saying “no, that doesn’t make sense – let’s do something different.”
This is one of the best value-adds a writer can offer you. It’s also exceedingly rare.
Easy to Work With.
I work with clients two ways: By the Project and By the Month.
By the Project
Real simple: you tell me what you need, and I will quote you a price. Easy as that.
This allows you to get professional copywriting and creative marketing work for a good, predictable price. Need a few sales emails and an internal memo? Great – contact me, and I’ll give you a total price. If you like it, we’ll do a deposit, I’ll do the work, you’ll be happy, and I’ll bill you the balance.
Then we say goodbye until you need me again. No contract, no muss, no fuss. People love it.
There are a few details that I’ll need a little space to go over, so hit the button below to get ballpark rates, minimums, timeframes, and more.
The other way I work with select clients is monthly. I do a certain amount of work every month, and I’ll give you a preferred rate, faster availability, and, most importantly, exclusivity in regards to your competitors.
But the biggest benefit is once we engage, I can produce work for your company on my own. Things like new markets/angles, sales e-mails, a new landing page idea, etc. I’m really good at this. Even if you have good marketing people, I can be a great add-on.
My contract for monthly work is simple and short. Hey, I want my work to be what keeps us together, not legalese.
Note: I only keep a few monthly clients at a time. Availability is not guaranteed.
