Out of Sight Doesn’t Mean Out of Mind
As an experienced corporate communications advisor, journalist and strategic content writer, my goal is to become an integral part of your virtual team to help you tell stories the way business readers expect—interesting, factual, useful, and relevant. Moreover, I’m committed to both creating such exceptional content and providing the experience you anticipate when working with an experienced writer.
While I work virtually, collaboration with me across your organizational team to achieve best outcomes is key. Only by working together directly and effectively will we make sure my deliverables integrate well into your content marketing strategy.
No Need to Be Aloof
The business standard often means keeping contractors at arm’s length. But, as many communications disasters show, it’s best to keep us top of mind because our objective perspective allows us to see things you might miss.
If yours is a marketing agency that wants to contract projects to me, when necessary, it’s smart for you to provide direct access to your clients so I gain a granular understanding of their business, its goals and what messaging they want to convey to their audience. Then, I’ll produce the right content with no frustration or misunderstanding caused by miscommunication or missing information and few iterations required.
If yours is another type of organization, like an association or private enterprise for whom I’m working directly as a writer, I will work best with you or your marketing team if I have access to your key thought leaders or personnel to interview or ask them questions. That will help me create the content you need me to develop with precision.
In my experience, with the exception of content marketing platforms where I work with editorial staff, communicating any other way—for example, asking your clients for the information you believe I need and trying to convey it to me yourself—has been shown to fail abysmally. I am most effective at partnering with organizations that provide the direct access to key personnel I need to provide the best content production outcomes for them.
Staying Clear Helps Prevent Mistakes
I may ask numerous clarifying questions. But, if you respond to my requests in a timely way and provide clear instructions, I can then work independently, without reminding or handholding, to get my deliverables to you on time and budget. Clear, consistent communication is necessary for success with editorial clients as well.
