our 100% guarantee to you
All clients—whether using a project-based contract or an hourly agreement; having hired us as a consultant; or after deciding to use our “monopoly” pricing option—of the-freelance-editor, or a team that is put together for you, are entitled to a guarantee of satisfaction and four promises: our minimum standards.
First off, your project is your project—you always maintain veto power over any suggested changes that we might propose. Your work is the culmination of your thoughts, your dreams, your labors; you are the creator, the author. I, personally, learned long ago that my place is “just” that of an editor!
Before moving on, allow me to introduce one caveat, one bit of fine print that can affect some of the remaining guarantees: Any changes you make to a project once we begin work may mean changes in timetables and prices. No change should come as a surprise to either of us, though—I will discuss obstacles and problems with you as they arise just as I expect you to discuss conflicts and surprises with me. Having said that . . .
2 Second, if you decide along the way that you do not like the way we work together, please let me know so we can discuss changes in the way your project is being handled. If you continue to be unhappy after adjustments are made, bring your continued disatisfaction to my personal attention. If we still cannot make adequate and appropriate arrangements, either of us may agree to sever the working arrangement at any time. You will be responsible for paying only for the work you wish to use.
3 Third, since you and I will have worked together to determine a schedule, I guarantee that your final deadline will be met or you will be expected to pay only half of the quoted price.
4 Fourth, I guarantee that the maximum estimated price quote that we agree to at the beginning of the project is, indeed, the maximum amount you will be responsible for paying; under no ordinary circumstance will that maximum be exceeded.
A few other . . .
kind-of, sort-of guarantees, or considerations, for clients and prospective clients to know about:
- Our maximum estimates are really maximums; they are also nonbinding and honored for up to sixty days.
- You get to keep and use the sample edit whether we decide to work together or not!
- Your team at the-freelance-editor will never force you or trick you or convince you into more work or more expense than we think you need—we all have better things to do!
