Everything you need to know about working with me 🙌
Hello. 👋 I’m Anete, a content writer for B2B SaaS tech brands.
I cover long-form content, case studies, user guides, whitepapers, and more — all of which help my clients build authority in their niche, raise their brand awareness, and answer their clients’ questions.
This is a quick guide to see if we’re a good match for your next project. 🤝
Read on to learn more about who I am, what I do, and how I do it. Basically, I want to ensure we’re a good fit.
Anete brings a fantastic energy to her work that makes collaborating with her feel effortless. She's proactive and flexible, working to the spirit and intention of the brief, which meant that it always felt like things were on track. Really happy with where we got to as well. Highly recommended!
Cam Incoll, Head of Product at Super.so
I really appreciated Anete's curatorial eye, attention to detail and diligence. I would hire her in a second if I had a full-time role available.

A note from me
If you’re reading this, you’ve probably seen thousands of portfolios before. Maybe you’ve even hired a few writers in the past who’ve produced results ranging from awful to “meh.” 🥱
When I started my writing business, I wanted to do things differently and work with people who:
- Can make (and act on) every business decision. ✔
- Are quick and decisive. You understand your audience and are happy to leave the detail work to me. ✔
- Value simple, clear solutions. ✔
- Can commit the required time and resources to complete the project. ✔
- Treat freelancers like collaborators, not staff. ✔
In short: If you value the process and the freelancer, I’d say we’re already halfway there!
First, I want to learn about your business goals and focus areas. We don’t necessarily need to have a call—I have successfully worked async on many projects, and that could include yours! Once I understand your goals, needs, and struggles, I can create a project proposal. Note that I only take on about 25% of the projects that come my way—I want to ensure I can give you exceptional value from your investment in the project and my energy is not spread thin across too many ongoing projects. (Burnout is not the way forward!) Outcome: a one-page proposal that outlines the scope of work, deliverables, and potential timetables, as well as a strategic plan for how it all comes together. Some proposals include additional services you may want to add to the project. Please note, my minimum project start rate is $600.
Any successful project needs a plan and terms we both agree to. At this stage, you have accepted my proposal (with or without any changes), and we’re ready to sort all the paperwork. That includes a project contract with all deliverables outlined and a 50% project rate invoice. Outcome: We sign a contract (I can provide one), you pay the 50% project rate invoice, and you let me know if there are any other formalities I need to complete before I can get started. Please make sure you’ve let me know about any paperwork you need from me.
We collaborate to flesh out the nitty gritty of the content. Once the contract is signed, you send me a project brief that may include specifics like SEO keywords, content length, brand guidelines, audience research, and other resources that will set me up for success. Don’t worry, I’ll send you a request for the specifics or if anything’s missing.
Outcome: You have provided me with the necessary information, resources, and access to start the project and reach the agreed target(s). You also specify who is involved in our project, so I know how many stakeholders will provide feedback. (Nobody wants a random team member joining our Google Doc and leaving comments that don’t relate to the agreed strategy 😫)
I work on creating your content within the specified timeframe. If I have any questions, I’ll reach out by email. I create an outline for some projects (like blog articles) first. This gives us a chance to refine the direction before I’ve started writing the full piece.
Then, once I submit my first draft, I also send out the remaining 50% invoice for the project, payable within 15 days (unless agreed otherwise).
I include one round of revisions for all of my drafts (with some project exceptions), so I ask you to commit to a prompt revision during the development process. (If you send the revision notes 30+ days after I submitted my draft, I will treat it as a new project and invoice accordingly).
All of my content is created using Google Docs. I will give you editing rights to add comments and feedback.
Outcome: You receive the project draft and the final invoice within the agreed timeframe and provide any revision requests so we can finalise the project. You also collect revision requests and comments from all stakeholders before I start making any changes.
Once any necessary changes are added, and the project is wrapped up, we officially finish the project and release it into the world. 🚀
If it’s our first time working together, I will send a brief project exit questionnaire to learn what went well and how I could improve my services to make your job easier in the future.
If we work together a few times, I’ll send it to you after several projects to see if anything has changed and how we can work together more efficiently.
Outcome: New eyeballs on the finished content piece toward achieving our end objective. I generally share it with my network on social media for extra engagement.
I aim to respond within 48 hours during work days (Mon-Fri). Any messages sent over the weekend I will check on Monday when I’m back at my desk.
For more involved and/or long-term projects, I am happy to join your team Slack for more efficient async communication, especially if I need access to other team members.
Find my portfolio here.
- Blog articles
- Long-form content writing (articles, thought leadership pieces, white papers, eBooks)
- Case studies
- Technical documentation (user guides from scratch or existing content overhaul to bring it up to date, retain existing customers, and appeal to fresh prospects)
- Content refresh (repurpose your old content with fresh statistics, SEO-friendly writing practices, and insights from new subject matter expert interviews)
- Editorial help (proofreading, editing)
- Project testing (for early beta products that need someone with a microscope going over the user journey and provide valuable feedback)
Some industries will overlap, for example, cloud storage and marketing. In general, these are the niches I write about:
- Cloud computing
- Design and photography
In addition to B2B writing, here are some other things I do:
- Create Notion templates and workspaces for other freelancers, creators, and small business owners
- Pursue photography (I used to do it as a profession but now focus on personal projects)
- Write my “No Ordinary Moments” newsletter - it’s all about simple creative practices and slowing down to enjoy the little things
- Work on creating a digital project with a friend (I’m sharing our journey on my blog)
- Occasionally contribute to Flipboard as part of the Creator Collective
This rarely happens, but if it does, I’ll communicate any delays ahead of time—especially if a cancelled expert interview or similar obstacles block me. Taking on fewer projects means I can dedicate more time and energy to your project so I avoid any delays on my part.
I understand life happens and that there are events out of our control. All I ask is frequent and early communication if there are possible risks of delay. This whole process works because we both have strict deadlines. I kindly ask you are able to dedicate time to the project. Otherwise, this isn’t a good fit. That said, if you need me to resume a project that was stalled due to you not providing revision feedback within 30 days or a similar situation, I will communicate a project restart fee.
One round of revisions means that you give me a single list of the changes you’d like made to my submitted draft. Because this work is done on a timeline, it’s important to sum up all your thoughts (and those of all involved stakeholders) and changes in a single place (one Google Doc) and hand those over to me.
All project rates are custom quoted to reflect each project's different degrees of time needed, scope, and milestones (starting at $600). I can work on one-off projects (and if you need them done yesterday, we can arrange a rush fee) and retainers for longer-term commitments to your brand.
I have a USD and EUR wallet for direct bank transfers and a local GBP bank account. If none of these are suitable, I can accommodate Stripe or Wise for card payments. However, I will need to add a small fee to cover the time and extra cost it takes for me to release funds from them.

If you think we’re a good fit, the next step is to fill in my contact form so I can learn more about who you are and what you do. And let me tell you—I can’t wait! 😊
And if you have something else in mind I’ve not covered here but think we'd be a good fit for — get in touch and let’s chat about a custom project. ✉
Your research skills are excellent - whenever I receive work from you, I can see you've clearly done lots of research, and the content is original.
