What Is Your Typical Workflow?
Many clients have never worked with a freelance writer / ghostwriter before and ask some variation of “what’s your typical workflow?” (or “what’s your process?”
Taking the classical example of a 1,000 word blog post or article (because it is shortly and relatively uncomplicated):
Typically the writing process begins with you (the client) sending a brief to Daniel / DSR Ghostwriting.
The brief is a set of instructions containing information about the target of the piece of writing, its intended audience, SEO information, and anything else that will enable the writer to produce the best piece of writing possible.
Note: receipt of a brief does not constitute a binding offer by DSR Ghostwriting to undertake the project, much less to a certain deadline. Please coordinate these issues in advance.
For some projects (especially longer formats like white papers) an initial meeting is often useful.
This may involve (from the client side) the account manager and/or a subject matter expert (SME) — or multiple of the latter. This meeting may need to be recorded so that quotes etc can be remembered. DSR Ghostwriting will endeavor to notify the client about any such request. These meetings can be facilitated in person or over Zoom / telephone depending upon the circumstances.
When quoting a project, DSR Ghostwriting will make clear exactly how much meeting time is included in the quote including what charge meetings above that may incur.
Note: a brief can be communicated through a meeting or both may be advantageous. This depends upon the project and the client’s preferences.
DSR Ghostwriting will begin drafting the text according to the agreed terms. Typically, the quoted price includes one round of revisions.
One DSR Ghostwriting has furnished the initial draft of the text, the ball is in the client’s court to review the text and, if required, suggest amendments.
Daniel has developed a specific workflow for working with Google Docs.
If that is your preference then Daniel will likely suggest that you work according to it. This is particularly useful when working with agencies where multiple stakeholders may be involved on the client side.
As mentioned, the standard contract offers one round of revisions.
If further rounds are required these can be billed on an hourly basis. DSR Ghostwriting will advise as to the applicable hourly rate.
DSR Ghostwriting typically issues invoices at the end of each calendar month for each account. This is true irrespective of whether clients send over brief(s) for one article or many.
Unless otherwise agreed, invoices are issued on net 30 terms.
In certain circumstances, DSR Ghostwriting may request an advance downpayment. You will be notified if this is required.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have further questions about the typical project workflow.
