Frequently asked questions
Why should I hire a professional freelance content writer in India?
As a business owner, marketer or entrepreneur, you're innovative, smart and growth-driven. Writing your own content is likely well within your capabilities, but why would you choose to? After all, you're a professional who recognises the value of your products and services and manage a team to convey that potential to your audience everyday. By hiring a professional freelance content writer in India, you're taking your own advice. You're doing what you do best and, for everything else, you're hiring experts to do what they do best.
How long will it take to write my content?
The answer to this depends on the following factors:
What is your availability and bandwidth?
I usually have three to four projects in progress at any given time, but my flexibility is fluid. If you'd like to check for a particular time frame, please fill in this form and I'll let you know how I'm paced.
Should we meet before getting started?
Ordinarily, unless this is a complex multi-fold project, a face-to-face physical or virtual meeting isn't necessary and I don't make provision for these in my quotes. It's much more effiecient (and cheaper!) to communicate via email and phone calls. A majority of my Indian and international client relationships take place over email and they couldn't be happier with the quality of work they get back!
What information do I need to give you?
I spent a lot of time in the research and understanding stage, where answers to the 5 Ws and 1 H can make a lot of difference. The more info you provide, the better the outcome. some information that will help me write for you include:
Brand/ company background
Current website, blog and social media
Previous promotional material if any
Brand tone of voice
Preferred writing style
Target audience (the more specific to content, the better)
Your brand "allow list" and "block list" for words (e.g. don't use "budget" for a luxury brand)
Can I trust you with confidential information?
The nature of my work is such that I am exposed to confidential information and business strategies on the regular. I take this very seriously and ensure nothing confidential leaves my inbox. My past clients have put their trust in me without confidentiality agreements and haven't regretted it. If you wish for me to sign an NDA, we can discuss this over email.
Will I own copyright to the work you write for me?
Yes, 100 percent, provided you have paid for the work in full, given your written approval and marked the project as "closed". This also applies for free samples that I give you of my own accord.
Do you offer other creative services?
As of now, I write copy. I take on the occasional copyediting project but I don't dabble in creating videos, sourcing photos, writing explainers or other scripts and creating high-end infographics and presentations. That said, I would still recommend you fill in the form with a request so I can tap into my network and let you know if I someone comes to mind.
What are your Terms of Business as a freelance content writer in India?

How do you charge?
I usually charge by the word for regular copy (such as articles, website content and landing or category pages). For others content verticals such as whitepapers, e-books and product descriptions, I charge per the unit.
I'm on a tight budget but need lots of content; can you help?
I don't get involved in copy mill-style projects so I will not be able to "churn" out content for small budgets. If you're starting out, I'll do my best to give you the best possible price. However, content writing is my bread and butter so I will not go below a certain threshold much like you wouldn't say 'yes' to a lower salary.
Can you write content that can get me on page one of Google?
The fact of the matter is that no one, regardless of what they promise you, can absolutely get you on page one of Google. The Google SEO game is a high-stakes one; anyone who claims to be able to land and stay on page one is either lying or using shirty methods that will get penalised. Don't believe me? Take it from the experts, Neil Patel and John Rampton.
