The Quintessence process

Writing for others has to be done responsibly as it has to stay true to your voice. To create your slogan and web copy, I need to know you well. I need to know who you are, what you do, what you love about your business and transform that into words that attract your prospects and win their trust. At the start I will be asking many questions, my work begins by listening to you.

 

  1. Once you get in touch, we arrange a quick Skype call. During the call, you talk me through your business. We define your communication goals and clarify your needs. After that, I draw up a quote for you.
  2. Is there chemistry between us? Let’s get things rolling. I would like you to fill in a questionnaire, designed to pinpoint the essence of your message and your brand identity.
  3. Once I receive your answers, it usually takes 2 to 4 working weeks to create your slogan options and your website copy. At this stage, I mix and filter ideas; observe your competitors; plan and sort content. In short I distil words to filter base ingredients and produce noble copy.
  4. Your selected slogan and your feedback on the copy are used to refine and polish it all; for readers and search engines alike. The text is next distilled to create the final copy.
  5. Your finalised texts are sent no later than the date we agreed at the start.
