If you require additional information, or if you have a project in need of a writer, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.

Here are a few questions we are frequently asked:

"What kind of assignments do you handle?"
"What types of consulting do you offer?"
"How much do you charge?"
"How long does it take you to write our copy and/or come up with a concept for our project?"
"What if we want to revise the copy?"
"Do you provide graphic design?"
"When working with a graphic designer, what happens first—copy or design?"
"If we decide to put unCluttered Communications to work for us, how do we start?"

"What kind of assignments do you handle?
About 60% of our business is writing articles, direct mail, and brochures for business, industrial, high-tech, and consumer clients. The rest involves a wide assortment of marketing communications materials, including ads, website copy, newsletters, case studies, annual reports, product sheets, advertorials, and slide presentations.

Our specialty is our ability to come up with winning concepts and to write clear, credible, persuasive copy about a wide range of business products and services. What's more, our work gets results, such as: Tripling the number of attendees at a conference through the use of industry-specific, direct-mail letters. Attracting a larger number of job applicants by creating memorable recruitment ads and flyers. And drawing more press attention by writing livelier, and more entertaining, press releases.

"What types of consulting do you offer?"

We work with many clients to help them develop effective marketing, promotional, and corporate communications programs and materials. How? By assisting with concept development, planning campaigns that generate maximum response, critiquing existing collateral pieces or drafts in progress, performing needs analyses based on their current collateral materials, and managing the production of magazines and newsletters.

"How much do you charge?"
For any consulting or copywriting assignment—a direct-mail package, a sales letter, an ad, a brochure, a feature article—just let us know what you have in mind and what type of source material we'll be working with. We'll quote you a price. Pricing may vary based on the number of items that need to be written as a single project, or on the length and complexity of that project. (For example, one company's four-page brochure might require 2,000 words, while another's might call for 800 words.) Expenses, such as travel, are billed at cost.

"How long will it take you to write my copy and/or come up with a concept for my project?"
Ideally, we like to have two weeks of writing and thinking time to work on a typical project. That gives us time to polish, edit, and revise until we're satisfied with every word. In the real world, however, we normally turn copy around in a week. (Of course, projects requiring interviews or research will take longer.)

But we realize clients don't always have one week—let alone two. So if it's a rush job, just tell us when you need to receive the copy. If we take on the assignment, we guarantee that you will have the copy on your desk by the agreed-upon date—or sooner.

"What if we want to revise the copy?"

Tell us what you want improved and what the changes are, and we'll make them—fast. Two rounds of revisions are included in the project fee, provided that the revisions are assigned within 30 days of your receipt of the copy and are not based on a change in the assignment after copy has been submitted.

"What about graphic design? Do you provide that service?"

We do not provide design services. But we will gladly work with your graphic designer, or we can recommend some highly qualified designers and design firms that have done excellent work for other clients.

"When working with a graphic designer, what happens first—copy or graphic design?"
It varies, depending on the project. If there is already a graphic look that we need to follow, the copy will be written to conform to that standard. But in many cases, the copy is written first. Words help the graphic designer visualize a creative look. The copy also gives clients something they can respond to in detail right away, which lets us know if we are on the right track.

"If we decide to put you to work for us, how do we start?"

First, tell us what you're selling and to whom. Send us your brochure, catalog, and any other literature (the more the better) that will give us the background information we need to write your copy. But don't worry about organizing anything—we'll do that. If w
e have any questions, we'll pick up the phone and ask.

If you'd like to get together to go over the project in person, we can do that, too. We'd be delighted to meet with you, whenever and wherever you wish.

When you give us the go-ahead, we'll write the assignment for you. And you'll receive your copy on or before the deadline date.
