Why use a copywriter?

A copywriter can help boost your sales – that’s the bottom line.

A talented web copywriter (ahem, such as myself) can not only help convert sales, but drive traffic to your site and spread your brand name online.

As for the benefits of hiring a freelancer – how does avoiding paying company employee taxes, desk space and equipment costs, lunch hour pay, holiday pay, sick pay, pension, health insurance, company car and Christmas party drinks bills sound?

Why not write it myself?

Everyone can write. However, not everyone can write persuasively. Using a professional copywriter is faster, more effective and much, much cheaper in the long run.

Do you work on my premises?

If you want me to, I can. However, this is very rarely necessary. I usually work from my own office, but keep in constant contact with my clients over the phone and via email. I’m always reachable.

Do we need to meet?

In the vast majority of cases, no. A telephone call and a clear initial brief usually gives me enough info to get the project done. If you’d prefer to meet, then that’s no problem. I’m based in Brighton, but happy to travel pretty much anywhere.

How quickly can you turn the work around?

Fast. However, it depends on what you need and when you need it. If you need work done over weekends/holidays then you might incur an additional charge. For a website with 5-10 pages of copy I can usually turn it around in a few days.

How much does it cost?

Ah, the (significantly less than a) million dollar question. I’m neither expensive, nor cheap.

I always make my rates and charges as transparent as possible at the start of a contract. I can charge per day or quote an entire project rate. All quotes include one free re-write if needed, any initial brief meetings/consultations and all agreed work. Additional meetings, extra pages, or changes to the brief mid-project will incur extra charges.

When/how do I pay?

All payments must be made no later than 30 days after project completion. For larger contracts, I may ask for part payment in advance or halfway through the contract. You can pay by cheque, bank transfer or paypal. Late payments will be charged interest.

What do you know about my business?

Quite possibly nothing…yet. However, I have written about everything from optical character recognition to the secret life of a warrior robot. There’s not much that phases me these days, and I always make sure I take the time to fully understand every business I work with.

Can you teach me how to write effective copy?

Yes. Whether you’re an individual looking for inspiration, or a head of department looking to train an entire team, I can help you. Take a look at my SEO copywriting training page for more information.

Can I see your CV?

I can send you a copy of my CV if requested.

What do you look like, Scribblemill?

Think Jeff Goldblum mixed with Ryan Styles and you’re getting close.
