Needless to say, you’re more than welcome to contact me directly with any questions or feedback you may have, but also feel free to browse through the frequently asked questions below.
Why should I pay a professional copywriter, and not just write everything myself?
You should employ a professional copywriter for the same reason that you visit your optician or hire an electrician. It’s possible that you’re great at maths, but that doesn’t make you an accountant. Perhaps you can write a hilarious e-mail, but you might not know how to write a landing page that actually converts or a leaflet that makes potential customers pick up the phone. So why spend two hours of your precious time reading online tutorials on how to write the perfect press release, when you could simply get on with things and hire someone else to do the writing?
Without words, your business will go nowhere. Whether it’s your website, a newsletter, or a small advert in the local paper, the copy will decide whether potential customers like you or not, and whether they think you can do the job or not. When you think of it like that, poor copywriting could actually end up costing you money in the form of lost business. If you need to save money, it shouldn’t be on first impressions.
If you’ve got something worth marketing, it’s worth paying a copywriter to get the word out. It really is as simple as that.
What are your rates?
The deal we make will depend completely on your requirements, which is why I am reluctant to publish rates on my website. I am happy to agree on a fixed fee per hour or day, or to decide on a fee for an entire project, and both options have pros and cons.
Whatever your preferences, the easiest way to get a quick quote is to simply drop me an email and ask.
I need something written by tomorrow. Can you do it?
Most of the time, I can. Even if I am busy, I will always try to juggle things around to help clients out when they need it the most. I can’t guarantee that I’ll always be available, of course, but it’s definitely worth a shot.
How does it work? What do I need to give you, and how do I know that I’ll be happy in the end?
I like to work in a way that makes the client comfortable, and therefore all my quotes and packages are amendable. Typically, I suggest either a phone call or a meeting, followed by a project plan agreed in writing. I also recommend a package which includes one or two copy amends in the price, just to make sure that you get the opportunity to speak your mind and end up getting exactly what you want.
In terms of what I need from you, it depends on the project. Sometimes a simple document of ideas, or a brief, will do, and for big projects a couple of meetings and various written information may be required. Simply send me an email explaining what you’re after, and we can take it from there.
