What is Prose Media?
How does the process work?
1. Tell us about your project
It’s quick and easy to order content from Prose. Just fill out a short online brief telling us how and when you want your content, and we'll get started ASAP. Need help coming up with topics? We can do that, too.
2. We build your editorial dream team
We give you your own personal editor-in-chief, a talented editor working in-house (in NYC) who will manage, assign, and edit your projects. For every project, your editor will handpick the perfect writer (or team of writers) from our carefully curated private network of more than 1,000 world-class journalists and copywriters. We’ll select an expert who knows your industry and content type — with a style that suits your brand.
3. We write (and edit!) your content
Your content will be written by a professional writer or journalist who knows your industry and is an expert in your content type. But we don’t just match you up with a writer and walk away. For extra quality control, all content is carefully edited and proofread by a dedicated in-house editor before it hits your desk. Your editor will ensure that all your content has a consistent style and tone — the unique voice of your brand.
4. Review and refine
Receive your content quickly — typically within three to five business days. (You set the deadline when you order.) If you’re pleased with the draft, approve it right from your inbox. If we miss the mark, you’re covered — we offer up to two rounds of free revisions with every project.
5. Pay and publish
Happiness guaranteed! Payment is simple and fast once you’re satisfied with your content. As soon as you click “Approve,” your account will be charged. Download your content in one of several formats.

How do I get started?
Getting started is simple and risk-free:
1. Sign up to gain access to a personal dashboard where you can order new content and track projects. No credit card is required, and you may cancel anytime.
2. Start a new project. Select the type of content you need (e.g., a blog post) and provide instructions in our short content brief. We'll get started — and if you're not happy with the results, we offer two rounds of revisions for free!
Need help or want to chat by phone before you begin? Contact us anytime.
What’s the best way to try it out if I’m on the fence?
Start small by ordering a single piece of content. You can request up to two (2) rounds of free revisions. And remember, you won’t be charged until content is approved.
Is the content written uniquely for me?
Yes. All writing is 100% original and custom-written exclusively for you. The work has not been previously published in any form, and it will never be resold or repurposed for another client. As an additional precaution, we use Copyscape to ensure that no part of your content has been plagiarized from another source.
Our brand has a very unique style and voice. How do you capture these elements and ensure the writing sounds authentic?
Being true to the authentic style of a brand is indeed challenging, and few writers (or writing services) do it successfully.
But Prose is different.
Founded by a professional ghostwriter with a background in corporate communications, Prose and our writers excel in capturing a brand’s distinct style and voice. It's what we do best. It’s an art that we have mastered and continually prove, client after client.
How do we do it? A multi-pronged approach:
1. We use skilled journalists and copywriters. The very careers and livelihoods of our experienced professionals depend upon their ability to quickly discern and duplicate a client's voice.
2. We invest time in background reading. To know what makes your organization unique and learn your style, we carefully review your website along with any supplementary materials or links you pass along (e.g., branding guidelines, editorial style guide, marketing collateral).
3. We have a thorough, unique briefing process. Our briefing process is based on best practices from the top creative agencies in the world. We offer 10 separate content briefs (one for each content format) — all of which are quick and easy to complete. Our team gets immediately up to speed on all need-to-know details about your stylistic preferences and content goals.
4. We're fast and eager learners. Initially, we won't know as much as someone who's been with your company for years — but that learning curve can be overcome in a short time. Prose makes the process fast and flexible, with a dedicated editor and writers whose job it is to learn your brand inside out.
5. We offer free revisions. Yes, writing in the style of your brand can be challenging. But if we don't get it right the first time, we offer two complimentary revisions.

Can writing really be outsourced without sounding generic or boilerplate?
It’s true that no one from Prose will be hanging around your water cooler like an in-house hire. But as your own “in-sourced” writing experts — easily accessible at any time — we integrate smoothly into your organization, becoming just as well-versed in your larger goals and culture. This knowledge and awareness continues to deepen as we work together over time.
Even companies with experienced, professional writers on staff regularly rely on Prose for extra assistance, freeing their teams to focus on other activities that impact the bottom line.
Companies rely on contractors and vendors for everything from IT to accounting and legal services. Why not writing? Content marketing strategies depend on a constant flow of quality copy, and good writing takes time. As clients frequently tell us, time is money, and it pays to focus on core strengths.

Is this service confidential?
Yes. Client confidentiality is a core commitment of our trusted ghostwriting service. As stated in our Terms and Conditions, all work remains entirely confidential. This includes project instructions and any assets you provide.
Our clients regularly entrust us with sensitive or proprietary materials, from not-yet-launched websites to internal memos and strategy documents. We handle all materials with the utmost discretion.
Can I use the Prose platform for free?
Yes! Prose does not charge a fee for membership or for access to the platform. You will always have free access to your own personal dashboard, helping to streamline the editorial process. You only pay when you order content, based on the specific content you order.
What's the role of a Prose editor?
Working out of our Manhattan office, our Prose editors are skilled and passionate about writing. Serving a dual function as your personal editor and dedicated account manager, they will oversee your projects from start to finish. This means manually selecting and briefing writers, editing and proofreading content, and facilitating any needed revisions. In short, they coordinate the entire editorial process — so you don't have to.
Most online writing services treat basic account management as a premium “add-on” at a rate of $1k to $2k extra per month. At Prose, it’s included for no additional charge.
What is content marketing?
Content marketing is the art of creating and publishing material your customers actually want to read. Whether it’s blogs and articles or white papers and social media posts, the key is to provide value. Today, it's no longer about interrupting people’s lives with annoying TV ads or online pop-ups shouting “Buy me!” Content marketing is a soft-sell approach that engages, educates, and entertains your customers and prospects by sharing relevant and helpful information on key industry topics.
The ROI? Many of these prospects will grow to trust (even love) your brand—and they will be more inclined to buy from you. With content marketing, customers come to you. And they stay. Learn more about content marketing.
I just want to drive traffic and leads. Is quality content really that important?
Quality is everything. Why? Because yesterday’s SEO tricks no longer work. Today’s content has to be on par with the quality of professional blogs and news outlets to drive interest and search engine results. And it's our job to see that it does exactly that. Learn more about content marketing.
Do you write for SEO?
Yes, but we go even further: We're smart about SEO.
SEO is a relevant consideration and we do our best to write with search engines in mind. For instance, our project brief lets you specify target keywords that we will incorporate into your content.
At the same time, we don't just write for robots, but for actual readers. Instead of using old, ineffective techniques like stuffing keywords — which turns readers off and invokes penalties from Google's new algorithms — we write what people want to read.
To learn more about the ways Prose writes for robots as well as readers, check out our e-book about SEO.
Can I see samples that prove your ability to write about our industry, a topic, or a given content format?
Absolutely. While much of the work we do is covered by NDA, we nevertheless have hundreds of samples to share that demonstrate our writers' work.
Specifically, we've curated more than 75 separate portfolios of writing samples that represent a range of industries, sub-industries, and content formats. To view one or more of these portfolios related to your industry and/or preferred content format, please contact us.
Where are you based?
Prose is headquartered in Manhattan. Our native English-speaking writers are located around the world, primarily in the U.S.
