Grant Writer Strategy Call: How to Become a Grant Writing Consultant and Build Client Referrals [Episode 69]

Back by Popular Demand: Grant Writer Strategy Call

Today’s episode is another grant writer strategy call. This one is unique because I’m chatting with Diego Reeb, one of the VIP Fast Track to Grant Writer Alumni! 
We first met Diego back in Episode 30 when he was finishing up the program. He completed the Fast Track to Grant Writer in early 2021. At the time, he was working part time for a nonprofit and needed support with taking his grant writing skills to the next level.
Now as he’s nearing the end of his Master’s program and looking at graduation in 2022, he’s ready to start mapping out a plan for how to be a grant writing consultant. That’s what our conversation today is focused on.

Discussion on How to Be a Grant Writing Consultant:

  • How to position yourself to convey your value and experience
  • Getting specific about the type of clients you want to work with
  • How to frame your services and requests for better word of mouth referrals
  • Ways to showcase your expertise when you’re good at writing – even without a website
  • Where to focus your efforts when there’s so much you COULD be doing 

Meet Diego Reeb

Diego Reeb is a Social Impact Consultant for Future Focus Global and a Grant Manager for Community Access Naperville. He collaborates with clients to create the transformation they want to manifest in the world. He helps with grant research, proposal drafting, strategic planning, process and workflow analysis, and program development. 
Diego will complete his Master’s Degree in Social Work in the spring of 2022.
