Let's talk. Email with your needs and ideas at katgalwriter@gmail.com

Why should I choose you over another writer?

I bring not only expert writing skills to the table but also have expertise, education, and practical experience in the health field . I have over 7 years of experience writing online content in the health field. I don’t just write to reach a word count. My goal is to educate, inform, and inspire readers and to attract more readers to your products and services. My work is thoroughly researched and supported by scholarly resources and the newest scientific studies. I have worked with some of the top industry leaders and helped them to gain more readership and engagement, rank on google, increase revenue and promote a best-selling nutrition products. I’m reliable, responsible, professional, friendly, proactive, creative, full of ideas, and always deliver on time.

Why should I hire a freelance writer like you instead of hiring an in-house writer ?

Freelance writers that work remotely doesn’t have to meet lots of overhead costs. Even if freelance fees seem high than employee salaries, you still save a lot of money when you factor in not having to provide an office space and supply, not having to pay for benefits, like health insurance, retirement, and Social Security. Freelancer writers, such as myself, run their own business so they strive to offer excellent work every time to maintain their working relationship. Freelancers, like myself, tend to be incredibly motivated, innovative, receptive, and accustomed to working solo. Freelancers are not bugged down with company meetings and other tasks, instead they are able to focus on the tasks ahead. Freelancers are an excellent outside resource person with tons of expertise. Even if you have in-house writers, a freelance writer can help out with specific project or outstanding work.

Why should I hire a freelance writer like you instead of working with a marketing firm or agency?

Marketing firms and agencies tend to have higher rates than individual freelance writer, however, they most of them don’t have in-house writer. Most marketing agencies hire specialists like myself to take care of their writing.

Can you write regular blog posts for me?

Absolutely. Most of my clients ask for regular blog support (eg. 2-3 times a week, weekly, biweekly, etc) to build and strengthen their online presence. How regularly you want your posts is entirely up to you.

Do I have to commit to regular blog posts?

Absolutely not. If you only need a one off post, a few posts, or perhaps an ebook, I am happy to work with you.

Can you write articles for me for high authority websites and guest blogs?

Yes, most certainly. Many of my clients ask for help with articles for Thrive Global, the Medium, the Elephant Journal, Tiny Buddha, and other popular websites or to be used as guest blogs.

Will anyone know that we are working together? Will you work as a ghostwriter? 

Many of my clients prefer to hire me on a ghostwriting basis. In this case, my name won't appear on your blog or other materials. Most of my ghostwriting clients prefer complete anonymity. In this case, I don't use any of my work, your website's name, or your name on my website, social media or elsewhere. Hiring me will be up to you and I. As far as the rest of the world is concerned, it is completely your work. A small number of my ghostwriting clients allow me to use their name, business, and even some work in my portfolio or on my website. Some clients ask me to write articles under my own name due to my background in holistic health and life coaching, psychology, and research. Some clients ask for a mix of ghostwriting posts and posts appearing under my name. It is up to your needs. 

Will you come up with new ideas for new blog posts for me?

This is entirely up to you. If you already have ideas and specific topic, we can go from there. If you don't have any ideas and prefer me to come up with topics for you, I am more than happy to do that. Be as specific or as vague as you need to be. However, I do charge a bit extra for coming up with topics for you.

Can you write about my personal experiences?

Many of my clients want to have a personal touch to their blogs and some ask me to write about their personal stories (eg. healing stories, personal lifestyle changes, etc). As long as you share your story and ideas with me, I can create an authentic post sharing your personal story using your natural voice.

Will my posts be unique?

It doesn't matter how many times a topic has been told, it is always possible to make it unique and interesting for your audience.

Can you rewrite existing posts or my ideas for future posts?

Yes. If you want to upgrade existing blog posts making them more interesting, more unique, more up-to-date, or longer, I can certainly help you with that. If you like to write your own posts, but you are not confident in your writing abilities or in your English, you can send me your work and I can create magical posts from your own work keeping your unique voice.

What if I am just starting out? Can you still help me?

It doesn't matter if it is your 1st, 100th, or 1000th day in business, as long as we are the right fit, we can work together. You may not even have a blog yet, you can still message me if you are looking for help with content.

What is your niche? Can you write outside of your niche?

My niche is holistic health. My expertise lies in holistic health and healing, holistic nutrition, detoxification and cleansing, whole foods nutrition, plant-based diets, holistic and healthy living, chronic pain and illness (prevention and treatment), superfoods, juicing, mindset, psychology, emotional healing, mental health, mind-body soul connection, health and life coaching, holistic and alternative healing methods, and spirituality. I have also written about travel, education, cultural experiences, and relationships in the past. I specialize working with holistic health and nutrition practitioners, entrepreneurs, businesses, bloggers, coaches, and other health  professionals. Most of my clients tend to come from this field asking for work within my niche. If you have other ideas and wish to work with me, feel free to reach out and see if we can work together.

What is your background in holistic health and nutrition?

I am a Certified Holistic Health and Integrative Nutrition Coach and Life Coach with a background in psychology, mental health, research, and R&D.

I need writing that improves my site’s ranking on Google. Do you understand search engine optimization (SEO)?

Yes. I can assist you with keyword research or you can provide the keywords you wish to target, and I’ll produce quality content and copy that cleverly incorporates them. I can also write your title tags and meta-description tags, and format your post the way google likes it.

Can you help with creative writing, poetry, or academic writing?

No. Though I love all these forms of writing, I specialize in online content and copy helping entrepreneurs, business, bloggers, coaches, and other health and wellness professionals.

Do you offer services in other languages?

No. My services are in English (American English).

When will you send me your work?

We will agree on deadlines that work for both of us for each post and project. 

Do you accept last minute assignments?

Generally speaking, no. In certain cases I make an occasional exception for regular clients for an extra fee. 

What if I need to change your workload?

At first we may agree on one blog post a week, but down the road, you may realize you would like to have two posts a week. Perhaps you wish to create an e-book. You may also want to slow down a bit and post less frequently. You can certainly request a change in the workload. When and how to do that will be laid out in the contract. 

Do I have to sign a contract?

Yes. It is best for both of us. After we've discussed all details, both of us have to sign an agreement. Signing a contract is a good way for us both to ensure that we have the same expectations.

What's your pricing?

Since every project is different, I quote each client and writing project individually. I assess the complexity of the project (number of posts, length of post, type of work, research needed, SEO needs, time working together etc) then I offer you a quote. My rates are competitive. Email me with your needs, so we can get started asap.

What is your hourly rate for writing?

I determine my rates per project or retention package, instead of offering a standard hourly rate. Of course I factor in the number of hours I’ll need to complete your project, this is not the most important factor. What is truly important is your results. When you hire a writer, you are not simply paying them to spend X hour in front of their laptop. Instead, you are paying for a high-quality experience and results. My fees are based on the value I provide.

How do I pay you?

If you are a regular client you will either receive an invoice once a month or twice a month (depending on our agreement). For one off assignments, you will receive an invoice right away. There is a late fee for late payment. It will be all laid out in our contract.

Can you work for free for exposure? Can you offer a discount?

No. I am a professional, I don't work for exposure. Though I love my job, I too have to pay the bills. I do not offer discounts, but I have various favorable packages, and I am certain you will find what suits your needs and your budget.
