We are a small, Portland based company that needed to take our website (www.shayzeus.com) up a notch. Sacha was quick to understand our vision. He was fast, accurate, and super easy to work with. His final product was a home run in our books. I would highly recommend him to any person or business looking to improve their web presence.

Vanessa is a sea of information in providing me with ideas and ways of implementing my business. I worked with Vanessa in setting up my launch of my first book. Vanessa's ability to listen and hear what was needed was instrumental for me. It was easy to get in touch with her if needed as this was important to me. As a result I look forward to working with her in the near future.

So happy Lauren Howland was recommended to us for shooting our new website. We shot all of our new inventory in the late afternoon, with 3 models in Oregon. She was professional, warm and comfortable to work with. She was especially able to communicate great direction (**especially recommended if you need some warming to the camera lens**). I actually have a few friends I've been begging to model clothing for us - and they agreed if Lauren was the photographer. It's shown in her work, but what I was most impressed with, and what I feel a review is best used for - is her professionalism. She has a high standard for communication and respect for the art and the industry. Pay your photographers well!! They work hard to develop a craft like Lauren Howlands. 10 Stars! Can't wait to book another date with her again.

    John Buckingham is exactly the kind of web developer you want to work with. A consummate professional: perfectionist, knowledgeable, unfailingly honest (in a good way), thorough, prompt, and someone who takes pride not only in the finished product, but in the relationships he builds with clients. No matter how dumb you feel for asking simple, repeated, constant questions, he always responds promptly with a wonderful sense of humor that makes you feel you’re welcome to ask any future question that should pop into your head. He was great at letting us know our options, giving us his assessment on what we needed and didn’t need, and working within our budget. When our own dreams were getting ahead of our budget, he worked with us to revise our plan to make sure that we remained within the estimated cost but also to ensure that we had a final product we could be proud of. John worked with members of our publishing team and our authors to ensure that all stakeholders had an input and were satisfied with the final product. He produced a beautiful website for us – check it out! www.untanglingthewebcommunity.com. We would hire him again in a minute should the need arise for another online community. If you want a quality, robust website developed quickly and within your budget, you can’t go wrong with John Buckingham.

    I have had the pleasure of working with Karl for the past ten years. He is patient and adept at developing ideas from thin air regarding web designs or product development. He has created original art for everything from books covers to product labels. He is willing to go the extra mile to bring a product in on time and on budget. Couldn't imagine working with anyone else. Highly recommended.

      Ms. Alarcon designed and illustrated a beautiful cover for my novel. She was very easy to communicate with and was always open to feedback. Throughout the process, Ms. Alarcon explained the choices she made and how they would help the book get discovered in the Amazon marketplace. The next time I need graphic design or illustration work, Ms. Alarcon will be the first person I contact.

      In my entire experience of living in 8 countries, studying several languages, and attending as many universities, Tristan struck me as one of the most learned and sublime teachers ever. His ways of approaching the most intricate subjects is simply amazing. A truly eye-opening experience! I am really grateful.

        Alex is the most imaginative writer I have ever read. If you want something unique--turn to Alex. He wrote the "back of the book blurb" for my book and I will have him write any others I need.

        My family wanted my 89 year old Dad to write a biography of his life. We initially tried to accomplish this via a College Student but that ended up failing miserably because of poor commitment and writing skills. I leveraged Thumbtack to reach Ideascape (MacKenzie and Doug Freeman) for professional help writing this book. Currently, we are about 75% complete and they have done an outstanding job. They are extremely thorough (plenty of research) and have a great voice for my father (written in 1st person). Each family member (especially my Dad) has enjoyed working with them and their demeanor is professional but also approachable. The overall project is expensive (to me) but in fairness you get what you pay for. This is my first experience with writing a book and it has been eye opening regarding how much work is required. Overall, we are very happy with Ideascape and unless something goes drastically wrong (wrapping this project up) we would hire them again. We also would recommend them for a biography project as outlined above.

        Sheila did the first edits on an article I was publishing in an academic journal. Aside from grammatical and spelling errors and inconsistencies, she caught a "bug" in my research that helped shore up my conclusion. Very happy I found her and I look forward to working with Sheila again.

          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.
