Lucas has Edited several videos for our clients. Everything was completed in a timely manner. Very impressive was his efforts at meeting the customers needs. He went well above and beyond what most small businesses offer. The final products always met our customers needs. If you have the flexibility in the job Lucas has many creative points to add. We look forward to doing more work in the future with Lucas!

Wrote copy for the sales of my products online: each one was both eloquent and clear, and I got dozens of customer compliments about the accurate descriptions and how evocative they were. Very happy with the work.

        I never would have had my book published without Lisa’s help. She immediately saw problems (and solutions!) that had not occurred to me. She worked closely with me, reading and editing my work, and showing me how to develop my original idea into a much fuller, more interesting project…one that publishers would respond to. And, happily, they did. I recommend Lisa without reservation; my experience with her was both really valuable and enjoyable.

        I listen very closely to clients and arrive at solutions quickly because I do. I base every solution on a consistent set of questions: 1. Who is the audience 2. What do they care about generally--and at this particular time? 3. What problem are we solving for them? 4. Who is competing for their attention, and how? 5. How can we reach them with a clear, differentiated message or proposition? Succeeding.

        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.
