Below are answers to some of the most common questions I receive. If you have a question that isn’t answered below, please contact me.
I’m interested in your services, but none of your packages are just what I need. Can you work with me?
Absolutely. Packages can be tailored to your needs, and I also offer a la carte services, too.
What are your terms?
For most projects, I require a 50% deposit up front, with the remaining balance due once the project is completed.
I need a copywriter I can work with on an ongoing basis. Do you take on long-term work?
Sure! Many of my clients have been with me for years, and I love ongoing projects.
What’s the typical process of working with you like?
When you first start working with me, I’ll ask you to fill out a brief questionnaire (it’s pretty painless, I promise!) so that I can get to know you, your business, and the challenges you’re facing. We’ll usually hop on a call for a quick chat about the project, too. We’ll agree on a deadline, I’ll do some research to get to know your audience, and I’ll get started on the first project.
I’m rigorous with my deadlines, so you can rely on me to keep your projects moving forward on time.
Will I have the chance to request revisions?
Absolutely. Usually I come pretty close with my first drafts, but revision is an important part of the process so that we can arrive at copy that is just what you’re looking for. I include a number of revisions with my rates, as spelled out in your contract.
If you’ve never written about my industry before, can you write the quality copy that I need?
I can. Since I began my career by writing for equestrians, I understand how important it is to have a thorough understanding of every audience and industry that I write for. I’m a skilled researcher, and I take the time to dig into some significant research for each new industry. Additionally, I’ll talk with you about your clients, and I’ll identify their pain points in order to create copy that truly resonates with them.
Do I need to live in the same state as you to work with you?
Nope! I have clients all over the world. I use tools such as email, Skype, Google Hangouts, and more to keep in touch, so there’s no need for us to actually meet face-to-face.
Will you sign a non-disclosure agreement?
Yes, absolutely. I would never disclose confidential information about any client to anyone else, but I also am happy to sign non-disclosure agreements, too.
Do I own the copy that I’ve hired you to write?
Once the final invoice is paid, you own all of the copy that I have written for you.
Do you do rush jobs?
I can often accommodate rush jobs, but it depends on my schedule and availability at that time. Please contact me for additional details.
