Copywriting

How much?

THE NITTY-GRITTY OF MY FREELANCE COPYWRITING RATES
What is the price to be paid for just the right words being carefully selected and then woven into relevant and captivating copy or content that makes your message worth reading?

Unfortunately, there is no one set fee. There are just too many variables, because every client is different. Every assignment is different. Whatever you need the words for, whether they're for a brochure, web pages, an advertorial ... the fee is always tailored specifically to your requirements. Your project.

My rates, however, fall well within those suggested by the Pro-Copywriters Network, of which I'm proud to be a member. By clicking on the link, you will also discover why using the services of a professional copywriter should be seen as an investment, not a cost. And you will also find just what it can take to produce great copy.

"If you think it's expensive to hire a professional, just wait until you hire an amateur..."

Most assignments are charged on a per-project basis. That way (providing nothing changes during the process), you will know the final cost of the work right from the start and so have no nasty surprises at the end. This will cover all initial preparation work (the brief etc), any research that needs to be undertaken, all creative and writing time with up to two sets of revisions after the first draft and finally the supply of the finished copy. Below is a guide around which a project fee is based, to help give you some idea of costs. The actual fee will, of course, depend on exactly what the assignment involves.

Copywriting - Full-Day rate (8 hours)£290
Copywriting - Half-Day rate (4 hours)£160
Copywriting - Minimum assignment fee£60
Copy-Editing and Picture Searches/Research£28.50 per hour
My rates for smaller copywriting assignments (those taking less than four hours to complete) are charged pro rata, based on my half-day rate. For these assignments there is a minimum fee of £60.
