Bill Heufelders writing style consistently grabs the reader’s attention through a knack of totally understanding the key details and facts provided using his powerful level of observation without much effort needed from the interviewee for a truly easy button service experience. From there, Bill is exceptional at communicating the article’s goal in a way that definitely resonates with our readers by producing the ultimate result of generating solid leads and new orders. Bill’s articles over the years on various topics helped us double our business at Eaton Corp. as an integral part of our marketing team’s success when I worked as Marketing Director for the Healthcare and Institutions segment. You can trust that Bill will take the intended communication to a level beyond your expectations with creativity in an article that will hook your audience for guaranteed growth, all in an extremely easy to work with business experience.

Above and beyond expectations! I used Danny Evans of Punch Creative to write ad copy for a sell sheet on very short notice. He asked all the right questions in our initial project discussion and is clearly an experienced strategic thinker and marketer. His copy was powerful and well-written, with a headline that jumped off the page. There is no doubt the man has creative talent and is a solid writer, but what makes him so much more valuable as a copywriter is that he also went the extra mile to understand the client, delivered more than promised and met a tight deadline. I can’t wait to work with him again.

My experience with ProFromGo is uncanting. I am in the service trade industry and theres no uncertainty this company has helped build my business/ name awareness on the Internet. PFG has anchored my company here in Pittsburgh regardless of the economy.... I get calls when others don't. If you want SEO and Internet Marketing done right, you call Pro From Go...otherwise you are wasting your time. From the owner to the people behind the scenes, words can't be said to describe as to how thankful there is a truley affordable, professional, hard working, and honest SEO company here in Pittsburgh. Also, I look forward to working with them for many years down the road, I wish them continued success as they had brought to us.

I had Ker Communications do a complete SEO audit of my website. I expected them to tell me I needed to do some sneaky tricks to make my website show up at the top, but instead they showed me a long list of technical issues and then fixed them. Two weeks later my business started showing up in that box of three businesses with the map and phone number and website at the top of Google. Mission accomplished!

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.
