Do you build websites?
Yes, I can create simple yet extremely effective content managed brochure / micro sites.
How long does it take to complete a website copywriting project?
Obviously it depends on your requirements, but generally speaking for a 5 page site, 1st drafts can be turned around within 7 – 10 days.
Assuming there are few changes required and you are forthcoming with feedback, final drafts can be with you within 14 – 21 days of starting the project.
When can you start my project?
Usually within 7 – 10 days of receiving the initial deposit.
What happens if I don’t like the copy?
I’d be lying if I said it has never happened, but it is rare, and I usually ‘crack it’ on the first go. However, my fees include up to two revisions – plus final, polished, independently proofread draft.
Take a look at my portfolio. This will give you a good indication as to whether I’m suited to your project.
Are there any subjects you won’t write about?
As long as it’s legal and ethical, I’ll write it. However, if it’s a ‘get rich quick’ scheme, I’m not interested.
Do you work with anyone and everyone?
Not everyone. Money is my second motivation; working with good people is my first. We have to get on.
To be honest, if I don’t like the sound of your project I’ll politely decline.
I have a cheaper quote, will you match it?
You will always find cheaper. If you think they are better, go for it; but sorry, I will not price match.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
I typically require a 50% deposit. This is for jobs to the value of £800 or more. Jobs of a lower value require a minimum £400 deposit, or full advance payment.
Do you take credit cards?
Usually clients simply action a direct bank transfer. However, I can take credit cards. There’s a 2% surcharge applicable for this method of payment. PayPal incurs a 5% surcharge.
Who owns the work?
You own the copyright/intellectual property rights once all fees are paid in full.
What are your hours of business?
Usual Monday – Friday 9am to 6pm.
