What you get with this Hourlie
THIS IS A PREMIUM SERVICE AND THE FEE FAIRLY REFLECTS MY TIME AND WRITING SKILL.
Article length 800-1000 words.
This will enhance their profile and demonstrate the expertise of your company. The ideas can be supplied by you or I can suggest some. It's usually best if you come up with the idea and I shape it, perhaps by interviewing your CEO on the phone or Skype then put his/her words into a compelling format.
I am happy to pitch it to an editor too, if that's necessary. If it is an area I am not familiar with it would be good if you could furnish me with an introduction to the editor, and a copy of the magazine or link to their website. If your company is a subscriber to the particular media, or advertises with the media it smooths the path.
Or you may already be in contact with a magazine which has requested a “Thought Leadership” piece from you, and your CEO is too busy, or not confident enough of their writing skills. Generally having editorial content is worth much more than advertising, so a page in a magazine could easily be the equivalent of £2000 worth of advertising. Additionally you can put this on your website, tweet about it, give it to your salesforce to hand out as a reprint, and take it to any conferences/seminars/trade fairs you attend.
If it's a website article I can add keywords, SEO and backlinks.
Trade magazines and websites are always looking for well-written, interesting articles.

What the Seller needs to start the work
I will need a written brief about the subject. It is also pretty essential to talk to the CEO about the article preferably to do an interview so I can capture their "tone of voice". I can research it myself but if it is specialised to your business sector then it is better if you provide me with background information or a summary of the idea.
