you’re interested in hiring me to do some freelance copywriting for you, I’ll
make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible.
pride myself in turning out high quality copy AND being easy and pleasant to
work with (there’s no prima donna sitting behind this keyboard!).
Here’s how the process works:
can tell me about your project, and I’ll follow up with any questions I might
have. Once I have an understanding of the scope of your project I’ll provide
you with a quote…a REAL quote.
some “Oh, well, hmm, let’s see …I think it will cost about $xxx for your
project – more or less, give or take” type of quote, but a firm, to-the-dollar
that’s what you’ll pay for your project. Period. (Unless, obviously, you decide
to change the scope of your project midstream. And in that case we’ll just
repeat the quoting process.)
your project ends up taking me twice as long as I expected, you’ll still pay
the quoted amount, and not a penny more.
you’re a first time client, then once we’ve agreed to terms I’ll commence work
after you’ve provided a deposit of 1/2 the quoted amount. If we've worked together before, the deposit won’t be necessary.
Can’t stomach my quote?
Then you’ve lost nothing but a bit of time. I’m happy to provide quotes for free, and requesting a quote places you under no obligation to use my services.
before I get started writing, I’ll make sure I have everything I need.
probably have a number of questions for you (or the appropriate person). And
I’ll probably be able to use all the background information you can provide.
Maybe even some old marketing materials like brochures, flyers, sales sheets and such.
whatever you can provide to help me understand your product, your company, your
customers, AND your competition as thoroughly as possible.
And be forewarned – I WILL make myself a bit of a pest, if necessary, to get the info I need. After all, you don’t want an ignorant copywriter writing your marketing copy, do you?
I’ve completed a first draft I’ll get it to you and then wait with bated
breath for your response. Fortunately for both of us, the response is nearly
always quite favorable.
what if it’s not? What if I’ve missed the mark?
you’ll let me know where I’ve gone wrong, and I’ll try again. No extra charge.
In fact, the fee that I quote for you covers up to 2 revisions should they be
rarely happens. Usually the first draft requires no more than a bit of
tweaking, and, quite often, not even that. But I’m not perfect. I could
misunderstand what you want.
in that case, I won’t leave you hanging. We’ll get it right – we have 3 tries
in which to do so!
Once you’ve paid me, you own the copyright to any copy and concepts I’ve delivered. Get in touch with me when you need some more.
I'll be looking forward to it.
