Business and marketing copywriting are my specialties! In other words, I can write for pretty much any type of professional or creative project you have for your studio.
Some examples of custom projects I’ve written include: press releases, flyers, professional letters (welcome letters, recital program letters, student recommendation letters), individual blog posts, a series of blog posts, website copy, marketing copy … things like that. I can also help with writing or editing custom projects.
Contact me! We can work together for a single custom project or on a regular basis; it’s entirely based on your needs.
Once I know more about you and we agree on a project, we will work up a timeline, execute an agreement stating the terms, and then you’ll be billed at completion. If yours is a larger project, a deposit may be required.
Custom project rates vary depending on the length and complexity of the project. You can see price ranges on the Services & Rates page to learn more about estimated costs. Moonlight’s shop sells individual templates and template bundles at prices based on either a single-use license or a multi-use license.
The short answer is, it depends. We’ll need to factor in your needs and my workload. Most Basic projects can be done within 2-3 weeks. I’m happy to discuss a customized timeline for you to accommodate both our schedules.
Most custom projects’ payments are due in full upon completion. A larger project may require a 30-50% deposit up front. All payments are accepted online with credit or debit cards. A FreshBooks invoice will be emailed to you with a link to make the payment. Credit card payments are also accepted in Moonlight’s shop.
I totally understand and promise not to tell anyone. For most projects we can discuss a 48-hour rush fee, which is typically 25-30% of the total project rate. You can also contact me regarding a Custom Fast Project.
Yes, and I’m glad you asked because there are a few important answers here:
- Moonlight is a boutique writing business in a niche market, so I currently only accept dance-studio related projects. (I’ll keep you updated if this changes.)
- I do not offer services for website design, graphic design, SEO management, blog publishing, social media publishing, or any other similar ancillary services. Just the words you need!
- The following topics are legally off-limits for me to write for you: crisis management, risk management, negative publicity, negative reviews, or similarly related subjects.
- It is my goal to work with people who share my business values, therefore, I cannot take on projects from studios that may be characterized as unsuitable for children, that negatively portray the dance industry, or that may rely on exaggerated claims. It would be unethical for me to accept projects and payments from studios that are in conflict with my conscience.
Yes! Edits and re-writes are considered custom projects.
Great question. 500 words is approximately one-page of writing, so most Basic services fall under that word count. Moonlight’s rates often reflect word counts to make things easy to understand between parties, but it’s true that sometimes a simple, well-crafted paragraph can take much longer than a 700-word article. I’ll always strive to work with you on an accurate project description, efficient timeline, and fair rate in advance of your custom project.
We can start off with a phone or email consultation, where I can learn more about you, your studio, and the project(s) you need. Following that, if we agree to work together, you’ll sign an agreement and send me any information I need to complete your project: website links, previously used material, related information, etc. We’ll talk on the phone, email, or communicate through Google Docs. With a custom project, you’ll also have two opportunities for edits once you receive the first draft.
For custom projects, our agreement will state that you own the exclusive rights to what is written. For products available in my store, such as blog templates, your purchase is for a non-exclusive license to use that content in specific places.
Yes! For 2019, all More Than Just Great Dancing members can receive 10% off any package of 2 or more custom blog posts.
