We price our services to take into account, not just the scope and duration of the engagement, but also what you, your company or organization can afford.
How do we charge for all this? We charge either by the engagement or on a subscription basis for a modest monthly fee that’s affordable to even smaller, first-time, less well-funded companies and campaigns. In fact, our subscriptions for editing services begin as low as just $100/month – depending upon our estimate of the hours you need – for small businesses and first-time candidates running for entry level offices. And, because it’s our nature, we always give our subscription clients more hours than they’re buying.
Why don’t we charge by the hour? Two reasons. For one thing, every engagement involves a unique mix of creative writing, editing, thinking, research and interaction with our clients. In other words, every hour we work isn’t the same. Far from it. And because, honestly, we want the flexibility to charge different corporate, political and other non-profit clients differently – depending upon what they can afford and precisely what we’re being hired to do.”
So, once again, how much do we charge? Well, it depends. It depends on who you are and what you need our help doing. We need to explain that. Here’s what you need to know…
We’re going to charge less for writing services we provide to small businesses and candidates whose campaign resources are limited. We can afford to do that because our clients whose resources are less limited tend to pay us more for larger, longer-term engagements.
Depending upon the nature of the work, we sometimes charge by the hour, other times by the job.
No matter the nature or size of the job, we’re all in. Every client, every engagement receives the same level of commitment and expertise.
Understandably, many of our prospective clients are uncertain about the value of paying a company with whom they’ve never worked before for services as important as the writing or editing of essential business and campaign materials. And that’s why it is not uncommon for us to do our first jobs for new clients “on spec.” No charge.* Or for us not to be paid after the fact, when all is said and done – if and only if you are completely satisfied with the results.
So how much will it cost for us to help you? Let’s talk about it. Send us an email to [email protected] or call 443-844-3160. If you get voicemail, leave a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours. We’ll talk and figure it out together.

*Just to be clear, we’re not a free service. We only consider doing work “on spec” for clients with the potential to give us additional business for which we would be paid our regular rates.
