Steve's rework of my resume, and the cover letters that he provided, are excellent. His turnaround was fast. He was helpful with additional tips on how to approach today's job market. Thank you Steve!

    Dan was a delight to work with! I needed someone to write my website's "About Us" section and hired Dan for the job. His first draft was not what I had in mind so I asked him to make a few adjustments. He promptly sent me back a revised copy and it was just what I was looking for. He also refunded me a healthy amount of my payment since the job wasn’t as demanding as he expected. He genuinely cares about his client’s success and his rates are more than fair. I’m looking forward to working with him again!

    Fred was contracted to develop Concepts and writing for a marketing brochure on short notice and with little background in the subject matter needed. He did the research, delivered a great product on time and on budget and the client was very pleased with the results.

    Evelyn didn’t just write my resume. She helped me understand what someone reading my resume who didn’t know me would want to see, and what wasn’t necessary to put in. She got me to rethink how I viewed myself and my contributions at work. I am also glad I went with someone local rather than some big resume place because it was more personal and she took the time to get to know me as a person, even though we did everything online and on the phone. I got the job, and the person interviewing me even complemented me on my resume. I’ve recommended her to others and will continue to do so

      I specialize in writing website content that sells your services. My greatest talent though is helping you create a package of your services that is so much more valuable that you can charge 2-10X what you're presently charging. My website content is all about the clients you want to attract. That's what's going to be catnip to them. These two questions are the foundation of your site content: ► What are the problems your clients need your help to solve? ► What are the solutions you provide to those problems? My copy is conversational and free of hype and jargon. Headlines attract and hold the attention of the reader. There is a science for how the content needs to be laid out on the site. It must lead the reader down a path to purchase your services. =======================================================

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you hire a good grant writer?

      Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

      • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
      • Strong writing skills.
      • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
      • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
      • Expertise in your target area.
      • Punctuality and good communication skills.

      How much does a grant writer cost?

      Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

      • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
      • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
      • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
      • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

      Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

      Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
