Posted by Parag L.



Due date
Wednesday, 13th Sep 2017
Hello, We are a System integrator IT Start-up and need help of an experienced Technical Copy writer with background in IT to write technical content for our new Website, Including Whitepapers, Solution Papers, Fact Sheets etc.

A basic deck of content is available, but we need someone to mature and jazz up the content, however there is some content that need to be created from scratch

We need a fixed price ( not a per word price ) to this task.
It is difficult to know how many words will be written, so I suggest you quote for a month's worth of work, 4 to 5 hours a day. as a guide below is the scope. ( this is a guide only - please keep a 10% to 20 % Variation in mind )

- 30 Pages of Website ( 40% Text, 60% Images )
- 10 White Papers - 10 Pages each ( basic deck available )
- 5 Solution Papers - 10 Pages each ( basic deck available )
- 10 Service Brochure. - 8 to 10 Pages each ( basic deck available )
- 1 Practice Overview PPT - 20 Slides ) ( basic deck available )
- 8 Case Studies ( 4 Pages each )
- Miscellaneous Content ( 10 Pages worth )

Technical background is a must, as documents will have Network Diagrams & IT jargons and successful bidder will need to have either worked in IT or written content for the IT Industry.

Hi there,

Professional Airtasker with exceptional BA and Project Manager background coupled with technical writing. I have over 10 years experience and all the tools to get the job done. I can provide extensive referees and contacts to prove my background. I have worked previously for many Govt Depts as well as companies like NEC and IBM. My quote is for $600 a day. A total of $12,000 plus $1200 GST. Or happy to do a week's quote on here, and the remaining through separate invoice. That would be cheaper for you as the Airtasker fee would not be included. Kind regards, Dennis

That is a lot of writing, and so I have to bid the maximum allowed by Airtasker. I bit of about me, I have been in the IT industry for 15 years as a software developer, computer science researcher and recently in content generation. I am skilled at writing for the web and over the course of my career have produced a lot of different pieces of writing. I am also up to date on best practices for writing for the Web. I know how to keep humans engaged and SEO bots happy. I would love to work for you, so I hope you will consider my bid, even though it is the maximum allowed.

Hi there - I could do a fabulous job for you, but fear the budget may be too low for the amount of work specified (even allowing for variation). My preference would be to work on an hourly rate, with your approval for each 10 hours of work. My rate is $25/ hour for new clients. I rarely work through Airtasker (these online portals take too much off freelancers), but am looking for new work after period of vacation. Law degree, accomplished technical writer, experience at senior levels of mgt. Can supply references from IT consultancy and biotechnology laboratory in Sydney and online science journal (regular client). Have written proposals, technical and project briefs, test protocols, business cases etc for wide range of IT services, plus resumes for IT consultants. All with excellent reviews. I am diligent and professional and my work needs little or no editing by clients. I can strike the right balance between detailed technical content and marketing your firm to executives who need concise summary material on which to make business decsions. Regards, Jenny

I am an ex-IT Manager of 20 years standing now operating a writing/editing service - "Edit-For-Me".

I am Masters level qualified, including a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Information Technology from Swinburne University.

I also develop web sites and content too so I am well suited, I believe, to your task. I would produce high quality work. By way of example, I have also developed IT Strategic Plans as well as technical and end-user papers. I have also been published in the Australian Computer Society journals.

Fixed price of $1,000 should cover the suite of work you require.

Hello, my husband works in IT and is able to complete all of these tasks. He does a wonderful job and is very professional. Just wondering, are you flexible with the end date? Are you happy to pay per task? (Then you would possibly split between people). If you are after a very professional job, it will cost more than your asking price.

Alternatively, if you're happy to have this done progressively over the next 3-6 months, prioritising high value items first, we can help. It would cost, at approx $50 per hr rates, it would come out at around $10k + 10% contingency for the whole job. Payment milestones would be negotiated based on delivery and acceptance of content.

Thanks Anneliese, appreciate the detailed response and suggestion, please leave to me so I can discuss with my team and revert back to you.
No worries.
Further background information Parag is attached.

I assume part-payment along way would occur against milestones achieved if we engage.

best regards

BTW, I am also a qualified Photographer (Australian Photographic Society honours) so very comfortable manipulating and working with images.
