Jessica came highly recommended as a content writer by a fellow entrepreneur. Beginning with a pre-writing question session, she listened to my story of how and why I wanted to create my website. She is very patient and answered all my questions. After talking with Jessica, I just knew she was going make my story come to life. In a very short time I had my well-developed content including SEO copywriting that I was able to review and discuss. With minimal changes needed the project was completed and uploaded. I felt as if a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I will continue to work with Jessica and highly recommend her for your blogging and content writing projects. John F Stevens, CPA, PLLC

    Understanding what motivates people means that my work remains effective even as the communications environment undergoes radical change.

    About

    Although I am skilled with SEO, internet marketing, social media, and website development and management, others are struggling to keep up with the ever-changing demands and guidelines. However, I am also aware of the value in various mediums for marketing and advertising to a targeted audience, and will always recommend the campaign offering the best ROI. More importantly, I offer a valuable 3rd-party insight into assignments of all shapes and sizes.

    About

    I help businesses increase sales without spending a lot of money on traditional advertising that does not generate results. Combining the use of Internet technology and proven, but overlooked, marketing strategies, I can help most any business significantly increase sales in a very cost-efficient way. Most business websites fail to have a significant impact on sales, and the reason, typically, is the copy, the words on the pages. As a website copywriter, I help my clients turn their websites into powerful marketing tools.

    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.
