Can I afford a copywriter?
Costs vary on the amount of copy that you are looking for, the amount of research required and the length of time required to produce that copy.
There may be cheaper options available to help you get started. I work with clients to establish what their budget and requirements are and if it is not currently affordable, I can look at options to produce the copy in bite sized chunks or over a longer period of time.
I offer a free consultation to discuss your requirements, goals and desires and work with you to put together an affordable plan.
When can you start and how soon will it be done?
When we have a consultation to discuss your needs we will establish timescales.
Urgent jobs may incur a rush fee but this will be discussed prior to any work commencing.
What information do you need for a quote?
I like to either have a zoom call or a telephone call to establish your requirements before I quote unless you have very specific requirements and know exactly what you are looking for.
Clients that are accustomed to hiring copywriters frequently just provide a brief and schedule and request a quote for the work.
I am flexible and happy to work around your requirements.
What information do you need before you begin writing?
Once we have had an initial conversation about your requirements I will be able to give you a list of the information that I need to put the copy together for you.
A copywriter will always prefer too much material to work from than not enough. Anything you can send to support your copywriter is welcome.
Can I make changes?
Changes, edits and amendments are all part of the copywriting process and included in the price.
Do we need to meet face to face?
Not at all. Everything that needs to be discussed can be done over Zoom, Teams, Facetime, WhatsApp, a phone call or email. Whichever you would prefer.
I write for clients all over the world so have no limits when it comes to whom I write for.
I'm not in the UK, can you still write my copy?
Of course. In fact, I specialise in writing copy for non UK residents who are wishing to appeal to a British audience.
What is a copywriter?
A copywriter writes for businesses in order to sell or promote their brand. This can include websites, brochures, marketing materials, social media marketing, profiles, articles, blogs, advertisements etc.
Can you edit or re-write existing material?
Yes. In fact many clients prefer this method of using existing copy. They may have previously invested in having copy written but it is now dated and needs a refresh. Websites are a prime example of where existing copy can be used as a basis to refresh and modernise everything.
Do you do technical writing?
No. Technical writing is a very specific niche and would need to be written by a technical copywriter.
I do have 9 years experience in the telecoms industry so very comfortable writing in this niche, however, other industries I wouldn't be able to cover and do it justice.
Do you do copyright?
Copyright is the legal ownership of something and not something a copywriter can do.
Do you do design?
Yes. I can design your website, branding and social media posts for you. I am not a graphic designer, however I am a dab hand at Canva and most website platforms.
Do you do social media management?
Yes. I can manage the whole of your social media platforms.
I research, write, design and schedule all of your posts for you.
I work with you to develop a strategy to increase your engagement and organic reach.
You can be as involved as you want to be with your content. I am equally happy either taking full or partial control.
What is the difference between copywriting and content writing?
Copywriting is writing for sales and marketing purposes whereas content writing is to relay information, tell stories or to educate.
I do both.
