I was in need of major help with editing of my book. Monica stepped in and made sure everything was correct. From our first conversation to the end of the editing process she listened and made sure everything was to my specifications. She was even gracious enough to edit the back cover for me when I needed it. I will be using Monica for all my future projects.

Christina Craig came into our lives at the end of my daughters junior year. We charged her with the difficult task of helping Grace find the perfect college. This was not a small task. Christina provided a thoughtful and organized approach to the process. She provided us with all of the tips and tools to make an impact with college admission counselors. Christina also expertly guided Grace through the intimidating process of drafting the exact college essay that would be sure to impress the admissions counselor. She has a wealth of knowledge about colleges and universities and because she took the time to get to know Grace, was able to make suggestions that best fit Grace’s strengths and personality. Thanks to Christina, Grace now has 2 college acceptances and we are anticipating more. I highly recommend Christina’s services. In my opinion it has been an invaluable experience and process.

George was fantastic to work with!! Our 1st session was a little rushed on my part- and my face reflected that, lol! But George was professional, kind and offered to come a second time for me to feel more comfortable! And that was it!! The pictures turned out perfect! He helped guide me to pose in ways that felt natural and helped me feel comfortable in front of the lens. If you want superior, professional pictures from a genuine, great person- George Greven is you guy!!

Stephanie was great to work with! Not only was she so quick to turn around the eBook I had her create, but it looked amazing. I can't wait to have her start writing content for my website next.

Shannan did a great job designing (2) of my websites. I've received compliments from numerous clients over the years on the appearance and user friendliness of the sites. Shannan also helped me understand some of the "back end" aspects of my Word Press website which has been extremely beneficial. My online presence has also been boosted with his help & SEO knowledge. I would highly recommend him for efficient, quality website work. Thanks again Shannan. Here are links to my websites: www.whiteholistichealing.com www.coachmissangelica.com

    I’m writing this letter to recommend Sarah Dorfman for your current employment opportunities. When I was the Marketing Manager at The Wharf Marketplace in Monterey, California, I hired Sarah to write for the website, menus, and marketing materials. She is an excellent writer and detailed editor; a combination I was having trouble finding. After working with Sarah on those projects I realized her skills in other areas that I was becoming too busy to handle. She set our social media in motion and was not only successful at growing our likes and followers, but she was great at starting conversations and getting people to interact with our brand. At the time The Wharf Marketplace was a new business and Sarah had a major role in helping us stay on brand, gain loyal customers, earn the respect of fellow business partners. Sarah was very valuable to me, and I’m confident you would have the same results. Sincerely, Carrie Crook Former Marketing Manager for The Wharf Marketplace, Monterey, California. 2013-2015

    I have worked with Steve on a variety of projects, as a contributor to his anthologies (he's a fine editor) and as a collaborator on stories. He has always displayed a great attention to detail and produces excellent work (check out his "Blue Kingdoms" series where he has designed covers, edited others and contributed fiction. First rate work and a perfect trifecta of skills). When I developed the idea for a serial fiction series, Steve was one of two writers I asked first to contribute.

    Carla is a savvy communications guru who is astute, personable, motivational and authentic. She does more to help reposition and brand a business in three hours than others can in three days. I have benefited immensely from my association with Carla and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an energetic, creative, hard-working writer or speaker, and overall authority on communications, and someone who provides practical tools that really work. In terms of the services she provides my small business, she was able to quickly assess areas of need and develop a plan to increase my customer base by creating clear and consistent messages across all social media platforms. Carla streamlined my business by bringing all the loose ends together, facilitating focus groups, gathering and sorting through the data to create a cohesive brand that is easily understood by my niche.

    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.
