Everything you want to know about my rates, but didn’t know how to ask

How much will it cost? What factors influence your pricing & quotations?

For more insight into how I price, here are the factors that I take into consideration for every project. They are:

1. Length of content

2. Ongoing or one-time project?

3. Research time

4. Topic complexity

5. Meeting time

6. Availability of background materials

7. Interview time (if needed)

8. Ghostwritten or Bylined

Low-end projects are those that have ample background materials for me to work with whereas high-end projects are those that need a lot of research plus meeting/interview time. 

What price point does each project begin with?

My minimum assignment size is $500. This is the also the value for a trial project we can get started on to see if we make a good fit.

Are your rates hourly?

I do not price by the words or by the hours spent producing the finished product. Hire me when you want EXCEPTIONAL RESULTS.

What is the typical process for a new client?

You answer a quick, intake survey. This helps me better understand your needs, your core objectives, and what I can do to help you reach them. From there, if it sounds like a good fit, we’ll schedule a call so I can learn all of the details about your business and your specific project needs.

Finally, I’ll send over an invoice for the work and a contract for the project, and once a 50% deposit has been paid, we’ll get started.

I need copy that improves my site’s ranking on Google. Do you understand search engine optimization (SEO)?

Short answer: Yep.

Longer answer: As a trained content marketer I understand the process of SEO which includes keyword research. However since keyword research is a part of the core SEO process, I don’t offer keyword research services as a part of content development.

But, if you have an SEO guy who could come up with targeted keywords, I could incorporate them in your copy to help you reach the right audience so that you receive the benefits of search ranking.

I can also write the title and meta-description tags that are vital to search engine optimisation.

If I hire you to write copy for me, who owns that copy?

You do.

How long are turnaround times?

Once we have defined your project scope, I can let you know by what time I can deliver the collaterals to you. But, if you have any deadline you need to meet urgently, then do let me know that upfront so that I can plan accordingly to accommodate your timelines.

What if I live in another country? Can we still work together?

As of now, I’ve worked with clients based in USA, Canada & Australia. We’ll be communicating over Zoom, Email or a project management tool so that the project can proceed smoothly, and we can stay in touch throughout the project.

What are your payment terms?

I require a 50% deposit up front for copywriting projects. The balance is due in one week after submission of the final draft

How do I pay you?

I accept PayPal payments and Credit Card payments. Bank Transfer is a valid means. I’ve also used Transferwise to receive payments in the past. If you have an alternative payment system that’s more convenient for you, I’ll be happy to discuss it with you.

 How soon can you start?

I request at least a two-week lead-time for new projects. I typically have 1-2 openings for new clients each month, but those fill up quickly. The sooner we can start the conversation, the better.

If you need me RIGHT NOW: I’ll move you to the top of my to-do list, but a 25% priority fee will be added to your invoice.

 You sound like a good fit for my copywriting project. What’s the next step?

Head over to the Contact page and fill in the intake survey. You don’t have to pay or commit to working with me until I’ve put together a proposal with a price and timeline. Together, we’ll work out an approach that helps you get things moving.
