How copywriting works.
Below is a step-by-step guide one how copywriting works. Or should I say, how us working together on a collaborative project works.
Have a chinwag and get a quote
Whether organising a phone or video call. Or just shooting the breeze over email, let me know what you need. Ideally, jumping on a discovery call is preferred, but if you’re unable to, email is fine – either way, I’ll ask you a bunch of questions to help me get to know you and your business better.
I’ll let you know my availability and give you a quote for the work. For an idea of what I charge check out my Services & Pricing (prices may vary depending on project complexity).
Once we agree a fee, it’s time to get started.
Sign the contract and pay a deposit
Once I have everything I need, I’ll ask you to sign a contract of work to make sure we’re both covered legally.
You’ll also need to pay a 50% deposit BEFORE I start writing. This is standard practice for all freelancers – if you’ve worked with a writer before and they never requested one, they really should have.
No deposit, no work.
Feel chuffed as nuts with the end result
Once I’ve implemented your amendments and you’re happy with the work, sign off the project and I’ll send you an invoice for the other 50% of the agreed fee.
If we work together again, it’s unlikely I’ll ask for a deposit. I request these when we first work together, once we have a great working relationship I tend to invoice at the end of a project, unless it’s a big one.
