Business writing

Business writing services: looking after your document from start to finish

Whether it’s a corporate report, a piece of analysis, a blog article, a leaflet, a strategy, a website or a business plan, it’s a reflection of you and your business.

Perhaps you can’t give enough time to your business writing because you are busy at the coal face. Perhaps your document needs to be written by somebody independent to make it more credible. Perhaps you have too much information to include and are finding it difficult to focus your words.

I can bring a fresh perspective to your document, ensuring it is well structured, clear, accurate and understood by your intended readers.

How much will it cost?

Because each project is different, so is each price.

Writing a business document from scratch might cost between £35 and £50 per hour. This will depend on the subject matter, the level of detail and specialist knowledge required, and whether I need to research the content myself.

Projects that specifically call upon my public sector background may be quoted at the higher end of this scale, as I would be providing a consultancy-level service.
