Freelance Financial Writer

SEO-driven content for fintech and financial companies, written with the reader in mind.

If you’re looking for a freelance finance writer to add to your content team, then I’m your guy!

As someone who has made plenty of financial mistakes over the years, I approach my writing from a very personal place. I see my writing as a way of communicating complicated ideas as simply as possible, so that I can take the confusion out of finances and empower the reader to avoid making the same mistakes that I’ve made.

For the past five years, my writing has supported a range of fintech and traditional financial institutions in their efforts to attract new customers, answer their financial questions, and educate them along their journey to financial stability and freedom.  

In writing any content, I aim to follow the tenets of the inbound methodology, wherein content is designed to meet the reader wherever they happen to be in buyer’s journey. I do this by understanding your ideal customers and the questions they’re likely to ask, and by using that understanding to draft blog posts, articles, and how-to guides that will answer those questions. 

The end result is that you begin building the trust and authority you need to have strong relationships with your eventual customers. 

I’m not just good at what I do. I’m passionate about it.

How I Work

Full Piggy Bank

Understanding

Your Business Needs

Because your unique business needs should inform the content that I create, my first step is to understand your needs and those of your customer/reader. How does the content I’m writing relate back to those needs? What calls-to-action will be included in each? What does your brand voice sound like? Do you have editorial guidelines or internal style guidelines that I should reference?

Agreeing

On The Assignment

However you like to handle assignments, I’m happy to oblige. For some of my clients, that means they reach out to me when they have an article or assignment in need of an author; for others, it means I pitch ideas directly to them. Whatever the case, I can typically turn around an 800-1,500 word article within 7 business days or sooner, when necessary. I prefer to charge on a per-piece basis and not a per-word or hourly basis.

Aligning

On Outline & Scope

Based on the information you provide me when assigning the content, I’ll create an initial outline and share it with you prior to beginning any actual writing. This is to ensure that we’re aligned and in agreement on the direction of the piece before I get started. Usually, this will include the general “angle” of the piece, as well as suggested sections and potential resources.

Similarly, this if you would like me to interview subject matter experts and source quotes for the piece, it's best to tell me now, before I begin writing.

Writing

The Content

Because I have an SEO background, all of the content I write is written through the lens of SEO. If you have conducted keyword research and know which keyword you would like the content optimized around, I will work to meet those needs; if not, I am happy to choose one that I believe aligns to your business needs, the needs of your customer/reader, and the goals of the content.

That being said, I always write with the needs of the reader in mind first. Answering their questions and clarifying any potential confusion is always my number one priority.

Editing

And Making Revisions

My goal in writing content is to make you happy. This means that if you review the content and would like to see any edits, I’m more than happy to oblige. I do, however, typically limit a project to two rounds of edits. Because the outline is agreed upon early in the process, if edits consist of significantly altering the originally agreed upon scope, I may charge an extra fee.
