Working with a copywriter

There’s a good chance you’ve never worked with a copywriter before, or you’re perhaps wondering what makes me different to other options out there.

So, let’s get acquainted.

A run-down of the process

1. Get in touch

Send me a message through the contact form and tell me a bit about your business, your project and what you'd like from me.

2. Let’s chat

I like to chat with you on the phone or via video call. In this call you'll tell me a bit more about your project, what you want to achieve, and what help you need from me. I'll tell you a bit more about my process, and how I think I can help. You can ask me any questions and I’m happy to send through relevant examples of work. This is also a good time for us both to figure out whether it's the right fit. 

I'm open to all sorts of opportunities, and I've written on a wide range of topics, but I also know that not every project is right for me. So if I feel that I'm not the best person for the job, then I can point you in the direction of someone better suited to help.

3. Quote

Once the scope has been outlined and agreed upon, I’ll provide a quote. Once you've agreed to the quote, and also agreed to my Terms and Conditions (nothing too serious, just some key points to protect us both) I'll then ask you to provide a 25% payment to commit and get things started. 

And don't worry, if your scope changes, any additional costs will be discussed and agreed with you before I progress any further.

4. Turnaround

Turnaround times vary depending on my workload and existing deadlines, but this will be discussed and confirmed with you at the time the project is agreed. 

If I have any questions while I'm working through your job, I'll be in touch. If you'd prefer to receive your project in instalments, just let me know. I know what things are like - projects can change, or decisions can get made along the way, so if scope changes crop up, then please let me know as soon as possible.

I try to be as contactable as possible, but I also need to block out time to commit to writing. Ya know, 'get in the zone'! If you can't get hold of me straight away, just leave a message or drop me and email and I'll be in touch.

5. Delivery

I’ll send you through a draft copy in a Google doc format (or Word). Two rounds of reasonable amendments are included in your quote, so please take the time to carefully read over the copy, make notes or mark up changes with as much feedback as needed - or you can give me a call to discuss.

This is also a good time to pass it on to your designer or web designer and have a look at the copy laid-up in the space – often you might think it needs a little less, a little more, or a little tweak to suit the design. Please note that delays with returning your feedback can result in changes to your deadline.
