Bespoke guidance for editors
Need help with setting up, training or marketing – help that's focused on you, and only you? I offer business-coaching consultations via Skype. This is one-to-one guidance to help make your business visible.
Most editors use my freebies or buy my books and courses. That's the most affordable way of accessing my advice on building a healthy client portfolio and wait-list via regular targeted marketing.
So, before you fork out your hard-earned cash on a conversation with me, please do take a look at what's already available:
If you've devoured all of that and still want something that's tailored for you, I'm happy to arrange a coaching session at a mutually agreeable time.
I still receive several emails a week from editors (or those considering becoming one). More often than not, the information they're seeking regarding resources, getting started and finding clients is already available for free on this website.
I ask my colleagues to respect the fact that I have the same number of hours available in the day for editing and running my own business (and spending time with my family) as they do. I therefore charge for individual coaching.
Please dig deep into the available resources before contacting me! If they don't give you what you need, coaching is the next step.
If you need to email me for another reason, I'm here: firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Some editors (or editors-to-be) need more help than others. Choose a half-hour session or double up but save yourself a few quid. The choice is yours. Payment is via PayPal.
The consultation takes place over Skype because it's free for both of us! I'm based in the UK, but you might not be. By using this online service we can speak to each other without worrying about hefty call charges.
If you're anxious about talking face-to-face, don't worry – I'll turn off the video function, and we'll chat as if we were on the phone ... audio only.
So that we can make the most of our time together, I ask you to complete a questionnaire at booking stage.
This gives me some background on where you are with your business planning and marketing strategy, and ensures the conversation stays focused on pushing your editorial business forward.
If you live outside the UK, this clock will show you the time difference between the two of us.
can i phone you?
Unless you've booked a consultation at a pre-arranged time, I'd rather you didn't call me. Sorry, but I work full time. If I pick up the phone to chat to an editor, my focus isn't where it should be: on the book file belonging to the client who's hired me! Email allows me to reply when it my editing schedule won't be interrupted.
