My Copywriting Rates

Just how much does a UK-based freelance copywriter charge? Here, I shine a little light on how I work and what my writing might cost you.

How much will my copywriting services cost you?

Not nearly as much as you might be thinking.

As an experienced writer, I bring you original and engaging copy at a very reasonable price. How reasonable? Well, according to the latest ProCopywriters' Network survey for 2020, the average UK copywriting day rate is a smidgen under £380.

By comparison, mine is £285 - a refreshingly affordable rate for writing that brings your world to life with just the right words. And saves you a lot of time, money and hassle in the process.

        HOW I WORK

        I charge on a project-by-project basis because every assignment is different. A quote will generally take into account every aspect of the work and writing required. That way you'll know the exact cost from the start with no nasty surprises at the end.

        My fees are based on (but not limited to): how detailed the brief is, how urgent the work is, the word count, the complexity, and how much time it will take me to research, create and then write what you need. A quoted fee will usually include:

        • Consultation/fine-tuning the brief
        • Research
        • Creative processes
        • All writing and editing for a first draft
        • Two sets of revisions (if needed)
        • Final checks
        • Delivery of completed project - usually as a Word document

                            Need your copy in a hurry? If you have an urgent deadline for your copy then I'm afraid I'm not the copywriter you want. Writing in a rush to meet a very tight deadline isn't how I like to work. And it's not the best use of your budget either as you'll probably end up with writing that's less than perfect.

                            To write anything that's going to be effective and worth reading, it needs a little time to be teased and tweaked into being the best it can be. So, the more you allow for that, the better.

                            However, so long as what you're asking for is realistically possible in the timescale you need it, I'll happily fit your project into my schedule. And to ensure everything runs smoothly, we can agree on timelines that work for both of us. I rarely take on more than 4-5 projects in any one month, so you can also be sure that the work I undertake for you will receive all the time, care and attention it needs.

                            My copywriting Terms and Conditions will apply to all projects.
