The work process

Here’s how a project usually goes from start to finish:

Reach out

You can contact me through the form here, or directly to hello@mirebelo.com.

Write a simple description of what you need and your expectations. Doesn’t need to be anything in-depth, we’ll get to that later. Some pointers:

  • Describe the kind of content you need;
  • Mention the name of your company and your industry;
  • Point to some examples of content you consumed recently that was interesting to you;

I’ll use this information to research you and your company and find out how I can help. After this phase, I’ll get back to you via email.

We can also schedule a free 20-minute Zoom meeting to talk a bit about the project and get to know each other.

Project brief and quote

If you already have a content marketing strategy in place, I’ll ask you to send me more information about it. Once I have the creative brief(s), I’ll draft a quote.

If you don’t have a content marketing strategy, you’ll receive an e-mail with the project brief, describing the form and content of the final result. It includes a projected word count, possible headlines and sub-headers, as well as a keyword suggestion for SEO purposes. It also includes a quote.

In both cases, the price includes:

  • Research on the topics to be covered;
  • A first draft;
  • Up to 3 rounds of revisions;
  • Final proofreading and delivery, with a set deadline;
  • Two royalty-free image suggetions;
  • Publishing to your CMS (WordPress or others, if necessary);

Pricing

You will receive a quote for the total price of the project.

The price per word for each article/blog is fixed based on word count intervals:

Need something over 3000 words? No problem. Let’s talk about it!

You can also hire me on retainer. You’ll benefit from lower fees (than paying on a per-project basis) and higher priority over per-project clients.

Confirming the project brief

Once you agree to the project brief and the quote, I will send you the written details of our agreement.

For small projects (1 or 2 articles), I require a 50% deposit before work begins.

For bigger projects, the deposit percentage is lower (20 to 35%), and the rest of the billing is spread throughout milestones.

To ensure a smooth process, there’s a set time window to make the deposit, usually a couple of days. Once it is made, I’ll start working on the project right away. You’ll receive an email notification when this happens.

By agreeing to work with me, you agree to my terms and conditions. You can find them below on this page.

First Draft

Once the first draft is complete, I will send it over to you.

I want you to be completely happy with each article. I offer 3 rounds of revisions to ensure the content you’re getting fulfills its purpose.

Final delivery

Happy with the results? Great! I will send you the final version, proofread and ready to publish, with two royalty-free image suggestions.

I can also publish the article on your CMS if you need. I am familiar with WordPress and HTML sites. If you are working with another CMS, tell me which and I’ll find out how to work with it.

I will then send you an invoice for the remaining 50% of the fee. The payment is due within 14 days after the delivery.

Once the project is completed and fully paid for, the copyright is transferred to you.

I reserve the right to link to the content in my portfolio, and to use excerpts in my offline portfolio; however, if you’re not comfortable with this, you can e-mail me and I’ll refrain from including it.

Terms and Conditions

Project Scope

In each project, I provide:

  • In-depth research about the industry or topic highlighted;
  • A first draft;
  • 3 rounds of revisions to ensure the content fulfills its purpose;
  • Proofreading and further editing before delivering the final content;
  • Two royalty-free image suggestions;
  • Publishing on the client’s CMS (if necessary);

Any changes to the project scope will require a new quote. Work will only start after approved by the client, and once the initial deposit is made.

Rounds of Revisions

Each round of revisions is composed of:

  1. Feedback: receiving clear feedback from the client regarding any changes that need to be made to the first draft;
  2. Delivery: delivering a revised draft, incorporating the changes mentioned;

The 3 rounds of revisions included in each project expire 30 days after the delivery of the first draft and/or after the client accepts the final draft. These are per article (not per project) and are not cumulative.

I agree to:

  • Conduct in-depth research about the industry and/or topic the content will be based on;
  • Provide original, high-quality writing as requested by the client;
  • Follow any special instructions provided by the client and agreed by me;
  • Treat the client with professionalism, courtesy, honesty, and integrity at all times;
  • Respond to any communications within a reasonable timescale, normally within the same day. I live in London, United Kingdom (GMT).

The client agrees to:

  • Provide supporting information, topics, guidance, article ideas, and other material as requested by me to allow for creation of the work;
  • Provide a word count, deadlines, and other relevant information about the requested work, and answer any questions asked by me;
  • Provide prompt feedback on outlines, work, articles, and other content as requested by me;
  • Designate only one person to be in charge of communication with me;
  • Promptly pay the deposit and fees as stated and invoiced by me.

Legal

The client agrees to hold me (the writer) harmless for any such damages that may arise from the writer’s work. 

In no event shall the writer be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special consequential damages whatsoever arising out of or connected with the use or misuse of their work product. 

The writer assumes no responsibility for any special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages of any kind, or any damages whatsoever (including without limitation, those resulting from his work product or from:

  1. user or client reliance on the materials or documents produced
  2. costs of replacement writings, training, or documents
  3. loss of use, data, or profits
  4. delays or business interruptions,
  5. and any theory of liability, arising out of or in connection with the use or performance of writer’s work whether or not the writer has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Copyright

Once the full payment has been made, the client will own the copyright to all content created under this agreement.

I can link to the content in my portfolio, as well as use excerpts in offline portfolios, unless the client opposes to this via e-mail.

Final acceptance of the work

Upon completion of the work to the client’s satisfaction, and payment of any remaining fees, this contract will be considered fulfilled.

After completion of the work, the writer bears no more responsibility to the work and the client is free to do with it as they wish.

Cancellation of the work

If the work is cancelled, the client will be liable to pay any fees in full for the creation and production of the work to date.

Any cancellations must be made in writing, via email, and provide as much notice as possible.

Acceptance of terms and conditions

A copy of these terms and conditions will be sent to the client by e-mail, containing the details of the work to be performed and the deliverables to be sent.

By depositing the first 50% of the price of the project, the client agrees to these terms and conditions.
