Frequently Asked Questions

How much do you charge for copywriting?

My current day rate for copywriting services is £200 (which works out at £25 per hour). I have considered a range of factors including the costs of Lincolnshire living in setting this rate. You can be assured that I will devote the same level of focus and produce exceptional content no matter the project.

I prefer to provide individualised copywriting quotes based upon the following factors:

  • Level of detail provided in the copywriting brief

  • Nature and complexity of the subject

  • Amount of research required

  • Expected time that the project will take

  • Urgency of the content

  • Value of the copywriting service.

So what do I get for my money?

The Writespot copywriting package includes:

  • Comprehensive research

  • An initial draft for you to review

  • Amendments based on your feedback.

Why do you charge on a project basis?

You might be aware that some content writers charge per word. However, I am among the majority of the copywriting community in avoiding this practice. This is because per word pricing isn’t reflective of the amount of time that goes into the creation of quality content. As an example it might take two days for a copywriter to come up with a 10 word stand-out strapline. However, it might take that same copywriter a few hours to research and write an informative and engaging blog post. Words aren’t a commodity.

Of course there is the option of charging by the hour. However, the Pro Copywriters survey of 2019 revealed that just 40% of copywriters have a preference for charging by the day or hour. The project-based fee was preferred by 59% of copywriters. The main reason is that the focus will be on time rather than quality when charging by the hour.  My number one priority is producing the best quality content for you; no matter whether it takes 9 or 10 hours. In charging by the project I give you the benefit of knowing exactly how much your content will cost at the outset.

So, what subjects do you specialise in?

I have over six years of experience in the production of captivating content for businesses. This has incorporated the production of blogs, web content, press releases, and much more besides.

Recently I’ve been writing about:

  • Video & WiFi Marketing

  • The Business Impact of Brexit

  • Architectural Recruitment Practices

  • Educational Benefits of Music

  • Primary School League Tables

  • Mobile Business Apps

  • International Cricket

I am always looking to broaden my horizons and am a whizz when it comes to researching and writing about subjects which haven’t previously been on my radar.

What are your payment terms?

Direct BACS payment is preferred, with 25% deposit, and the remainder paid upon delivery. However, I will also accept cheque and credit card payments via PayPal.
