1. How much do you charge?: I charge clients in three ways; a day rate, an hourly rate or a project rate. My day rate varies between £450-£500 (UK, USA, Asia) $700 – $750 AUD (Australia, New Zealand) depending on the project, and my hourly and project rate also reflects that. The majority of projects will require a small retainer up front to secure your commitment. Please note that my rate is not negotiable – and is subject to increase on a year-on-year basis.

  2. Can you write about my niche topic?: I hate the phrase “jack of all trades” but unfortunately, I do fall into that bracket. Although I worked permanently for a number of years, I’ve also continuously freelanced professionally since the age of 18, which has given me nearly eight years of experience as a copywriter. You can view my portfolio to see my breadth of knowledge. Also, I’m not here to rip anyone off – if I can’t write about a topic or don’t feel confident that I can deliver, I have a number of freelancers in my network who I’d happily recommend you to, just ask!

  3. What type of copy/content have you done before?: White papers, blogs, scripts, social media posts, internal communication documents, email sequences, job descriptions, academic papers, product descriptions, website copy, affiliate website copy – pretty much anything you can think of, I’ve written. 

  4. How many words do you write for blogs?: On average, although this does vary due to subject matter, I’ll be aiming for a minimum of 750 and a maximum of 1,000. Within my niche (recruitment) that seems to be the optimum length for content to keep people engaged. However, there are certain times where blogs will need to be between 1,000 – 2,500 words long.
  5. How do you like to work?: I prefer to work to your budget, and will consult you on the best solution based on the amount of money you have to spend. I’ll always make something commercially right for both parties, however, if your budget is too low (or too high) I’ll tell you. It’s important that we work on a partnership basis and you know that you’re paying the correct market rate for the service you’re asking for.

  6. How do I pay you?: I invoice on the last working day of the month, for work completed that month. In some instances, I will request money upfront – especially if the project is worth a substantial amount. Failure to pay me on time incurs a charge, so please make sure you pay me on time. 
  7. What programs/software can you use?: I’m lucky I’m not a technophobe, and can adapt to use any new programs or software providing I don’t need a degree to use it! The following is what I’ve used:
  • Trello
  • Asana
  • Notion
  • HubSpot (certified in Sales & Marketing courses)
  • Photoshop
  • Indesign
  • WordPress
  • Influence
  • FileFinder
  • Bullhorn
  • ActiveCampaign
