You'll find plenty of reasons to use an experienced freelance
writer, editor, or trainer (and you get all three in one when you use me):
You only pay for the work you need now—no
extra expense for office space, computer and network equipment,
or employee benefits. If your writing or training needs
are unpredictable or infrequent, bringing in a freelancer solves
your problem nicely.
Project size doesn't matter—freelancers
can help you with everything from developing a long-term project
from scratch to a quick edit of material that needs to go out
Freelancers can supplement your own in-house
writing or training staff during heavy workloads. When
the workload returns to normal, so does your staff size.
You don't pay for slow work periods—when
your project is finished, so are your expenses. You don't
have to find extra work to keep a freelancer busy.
Your entire staff becomes more productive
when they're free to concentrate on the tasks they do best,
without trying to find extra time for documentation, internal or
external communication, web content creation or updates, or
teaching other employees how to use your systems or processes.
You'll have access to my 16 years' corporate
experience creating communications and training for multiple
industries, audiences, writing styles, and media.
In-house staff can rarely offer this range.
Writing quality is always top-notch and
professional. When you ask staff members to add
writing tasks to their regular workload, few are comfortable
with this type of work.
The work your staff has already done isn't
wasted; a freelancer can use what you already have and
streamline it, polish it to remove grammar or mechanics errors,
and even refit it for new media. An freelance editor can
also take the work of multiple people and make it look like it
came from one—a huge advantage when making all your materials
I'm used to getting up to speed quickly on new
content, processes, and systems. I know how to change
gears and adapt to each new project or team because I've done it
professionally—and successfully—for 16 years.
A freelancer brings the valuable "outside"
perspective of a potential customer or new user. It's
a fact of life—as people become experts in what they do, they
can lose sight of what it's like to be "the new guy,"
user, or customer. With each new project, I focus on what
your audience doesn't know and what will be most
important to them.
