When I launched my practice, I depended on WebRev completely. It was a brand new business and I needed everything done – website design, logo design, web marketing, and social media. My goal was to have a full client roster by the time we opened our doors. Thanks to Brian and the WebRev team, we were able to achieve that goal. Business has been booming since our first day, and I know it’s because of the fact that we have a beautiful website that they designed to be easily found on Google searches. Everything that they set up for us has been really easy to keep up with by ourselves, which was a crucial part of the job. We needed a site that would make doing business easier, and not result in us wasting time trying to figure out tech issues. It was also just great working with Brian and everyone over there. They were incredibly responsive and I knew that I could reach them anytime I needed to – Brian always made me feel like my business was a priority. And he always cleared everything with me, so I felt totally in control of what happened and like my input really mattered.

My sincerest gratitude to Tammy for enriching me by guiding me to find my deepest talents; for inspiring me by quoting insights on how to be a great writer from a variety of astute sources; for encouraging me with her kindness and understanding of the big picture and my personal ones. If there was a letter grade better than an A++, I would give her that esteem.

Marissa was an excellent tutor! She helped me with my English homework and because of her I got a much better grade in the class. I feel like I am a better writer because of her and I use the skills she gave me in all of my writing assignments now. She was incredibly professional but also very friendly and easy to talk to. Essay writing is now so much easier for me because of the the things Marissa taught me. I would recommend Marissa as a tutor to anyone looking to improve their writing.

I don't usually review things, but my experience with Nex Gen Dynamics, and Nick was so amazing. I was a little unsure about what exactly it was that I wanted for my business. I thought the problem was my website, and I was looking for a total redesign. Nick was great and told me I didn't need one. He told me my problem was SEO. I wasn't even sure what SEO was but I could tell Nick knew what he was talking about, and he never tried to sell me something I didn't need. He was transparent and trustworthy the whole way through and I really appreciated that. I'm now getting the search ranking I was looking for and much more traffic for my business. To top it off, Nick worked with my budget and I got a great deal. If you want someone who actually knows what they are talking about and can actually explain it to someone without a web background then Nick is your guy. On top of everything, they also have an IT department and they were able so solve some connection issues I was having! I would recommend them to anyone.

Jeff and Pat Klingberg of Mountain Stream Group have been instrumental in helping me move forward with the development of my invention. Not only have they helped me perfect the development process from an engineering perspective, but also they have become actively involved in the marketing and product development lifecycle. It was difficult working with companies who only had a half-hearted interest in my endeavor. Jeff and Pat have travelled to my hometown twice for one-on-one meetings that have helped to further enhance the product. If you are looking for a company that will support your endeavor from all business angles I highly recommend Mountain Stream Group.

    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.
