I’m a professional member of the Professional Copywriters’ Network and my fees are well within their suggested guidelines for copywriting rates. I’ll charge you a fair price for the work I do, and the value that my writing brings to your business is always much, much more than the fees I charge.

I work from home with minimal overheads, so I’m much more flexible and affordable than some agencies you may have worked with in the past.

My clients tell me I’m fun to work with, and bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to their projects.

Most of my clients prefer to negotiate a fixed rate for their projects. When we have our initial chat you can tell me more about your business needs and I’ll be able to give you an estimate of the fees involved and a timescale. I’m usually booked up 4-6 weeks in advance, but can often juggle things around for shorter projects, so it’s always worth getting in touch to check my availability.

My clients have used my content as the basis for highly successful national and international PR campaigns, and the majority of my clients have continued to work with me long after their initial project was completed.

How I Work

We’ll kick off with either a face-to-face meeting or a phone call/video call, and you’ll tell me all about your business and what you need my help with.

I’ll then go away and come back to you within 5 working days, with a proposal and an estimate of my fees.

We’ll then tweak the proposal together to make sure that we’re both happy, and at that point we’ll agree the final project fee.

I’ll then send you my contract to have a look through, and once you’re happy with that I ask for an upfront and non-refundable deposit (25% of the project fee) and once the deposit has been paid, I’ll get cracking on the copy. I don’t charge a deposit to returning clients.

I promise to stay in touch and give you regular updates, and I always offer up to three redrafts included in the project price, so you can rest assured that you will be 100 per cent happy with the result.

I’ve never missed a deadline.

Agencies and Consultancies

I’ve worked both in-house and remotely for marketing agencies and consultancies and, through these, I have worked on high profile campaigns for major national and global brands. I have extensive experience of drafting, copywriting, editing and proofreading, and I can quickly get to grips with a creative brief.

If you’d like me to help you out with a particular marketing project, or if you have a deadline coming up and need additional resource in order to meet it, then passing a portion of the work over to me can make a lot of sense. It won’t take me long to work out exactly what you need, and to build up a good working relationship with your team. You can find out more about the benefits of outsourcing here.

I’m a safe pair of hands and you can trust me to work with minimal direction.

Longer Term Projects

For longer term projects you may prefer to work with me on a retainer basis.

Some clients need longer term support, for example you may have a specific long-term marketing campaign that you would like me to help you out with, or you might want to keep your website content fresh and improve your SEO by booking me on a monthly or quarterly basis to produce regular and consistent articles or blog posts.

You can book me for anything from a couple of hours a month to up to five days a week (subject to availability) and I’ll charge you a set monthly fee until the project is completed. This always works out as being more cost effective than paying the equivalent project rate, and I offer a ten per cent discount if the retainer agreement is for longer than three months.

Availability

Many of my clients choose to continue working with me long after the initial project has been completed. For this reason I’m usually booked up 4-6 weeks in advance. If you think you might like to work with me it’s worth dropping me a quick email to check my availability. If I’m not available at the time that you need me, I know a number of excellent copywriters I’d be very happy to recommend.
