What Can A Client Expect from a Hired Writer?
I am a professional blogger and hired writer, and this requires a certain amount of discipline and scheduling. Not necessarily on the part of the clients; mostly, on the part of ME!
My clients know that they can expect a new post from me at approximately 12:05 a.m. on the due date, which varies from client to client. I post at that time because then, the client’s customers and potential customers are all pretty much assured of a 24-hour-long viewing time for each new post.
My clients also know that they can expect all of my posts to be grammatically correct. Don’t laugh. We’ve all seen internet articles that don’t seem to have any ties to basic English grammar and spelling whatsoever. This is a fatal flaw when it comes to marketing, for many people, particularly professional people, assume that if a client is careless with such simple things as spelling, he/she is probably equally careless with the more serious aspects of his/her business. In other words, if there’s a misspelled word on the menu or marquee, COUNT YOUR CHANGE. A business blog is an extension of the PEOPLE of that business, and as such needs to inspire confidence, not criticism or an assumption that nobody working at this place can spell his/her own last name!
One might assume that a hired blogger would not feel any ownership or pride in his/her assignment, but this couldn’t be further from the truth! The trust and confidence placed in me by Jim Turner and by each of the business owners who have put their faith in my ability to write for and about them means a lot to me, and I would not let any of them down for any reason. I believe in all of my clients, and I can tell you all quite truthfully that my family has been privileged to sample and become devoted fans of almost every business’ product or services that I’ve ever blogged for.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I want to load a few more new pictures onto my digital picture frame, change the 100% recyclable, insect-free trash bags in the kitchen and bathrooms, get a few more helpful hints from the new Humana blog, e-mail Jim about looking into a new trade-show display, investigate the logistics of moving two pianos across town, compare prices for a new king-size bed, look into some digital signage possibilities, lay out some hands-on science project materials for my class, and make a peanut butter and pepper jelly sandwich before I turn in.
To paraphrase the Hair Club: I not only write for these businesses; I’m also a customer!
A very loyal, very satisfied customer. I don’t think I could write well for any business I didn’t personally like.
I hope that attitude shows in my writing for each and every one of my very awesome clients.
