Elsie has a flexible approach to pricing.
A fee based on an hourly rate, per word or a flat fee for the work. It may be difficult to decide which would be the best option for your needs. That’s why–
Elsie adapts her rates to fit each project.
The enquiry form on the ‘Contacts’ page allows for you to request the type of service that you regard as appropriate for your piece of writing. However, on checking your text, Elsie may consider you need additional services to meet her standard of high quality. If you have already budgeted for the work based on an assumption of cost, what do you do? That’s why–
Elsie costs each project according to its requirements.
The number of changes to be made, the timeframe for effecting the changes, and the services needed to ensure your writing achieves its purpose all contribute to the charge-out rate. Elsie’s services vary in complexity and this is reflected in a range of rates calculated to accommodate the different skills. That's why--
Elsie prefers to assess your writing before putting a price on it.
