After you read this page and accept the terms, please email me at info {at} sarahban {dot} com. Feel free to include as much information about your brand/publication and your editorial needs as you want, but at MINIMUM we require: A) a description of your highest-priority project and B) your budget (a range or estimate is fine).
  2. We will respond to you with a bit more detail on how we think we can help along with a document containing our fee ranges so you get a better idea of what to expect. Sometimes, if we have a clear idea on the project, we’ll even send you a final quote at this stage.
  3. We will schedule a free phone consultation if we believe we’re the best people for your job and need more information.
  4. After your free phone consultation, I will send you a customized proposal, including your final quote.

An important note about rates 

We are not a content mill.

There are thousands of writers out there, particularly from sites like, who can quickly draft you an article for meager fees. Someone who isn’t a professional health or beauty writer can easily produce a blog post off the top of their head simply because they enjoy reading Allure or Women’s Health.

If this is the route you’d prefer to take, I’m not the writer for you (and no hard feelings).

My rates are based on my extensive experience, value, targeted skill set and the positive outcomes I offer. I’ve written for national publications, global brands and successful high-growth start-ups in the beauty, health and wellness space. I’m always apprised of industry trends and am deeply connected with the community. And I have been trained to uphold journalism standards.

I’m not saying this to impress you, but to impress upon you that I can certainly help you if you’re looking for someone like me. If your main goal is to spend the least amount possible and fill your site to the brim with keyword-dense articles, I won’t be able to help.

Customized rates

I follow the general guidelines published and updated yearly by the American Writers and Artists, Inc. (AWAI). To give you an idea of what to expect, original homepage copywriting ranges between $1,500-$3,000. Articles start at 50¢/word.

Special Rates 

I do provide reduced rates for certain situations, including but limited to:

Ongoing Work/Monthly Retainers: If you commit to a set number of activities every month I can work out a reduced rate with you.

Small Businesses and Start-Ups: I’m dedicated to working with entrepreneurs and small businesses. I allot a few spaces at any given time for new businesses. If you’re serious about your company’s content marketing success, let’s chat.
