How much does a copywriter charge?

THE NITTY-GRITTY OF MY FREELANCE COPYWRITING RATES FOR 2019

What is the price to be paid for just the right words being carefully selected and then woven into relevant and captivating copy? Copy to make your message worth reading. To win hearts perhaps, inspire, persuade, make sales ...

Unfortunately, I can't tell you. At least not without knowing more about what it is you need writing. Because every client is different. Every writing assignment is different. Which is why I don't have just one set price. This means that whatever you need those carefully chosen words for, whether they're for a brochure, web pages, an advertising feature, SEO article ... the fee is always tailored specifically to your requirements. Your project.

What I can tell you, however, is that my rates 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'll be able to see just why using the services of a professional copywriter should be seen as an investment, not a cost. And you'll also find what it takes to produce great copy.

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)£280
Copywriting - Half-Day rate (4 hours)£160
Copywriting - Minimum assignment fee£70
Copy-Editing£30 per hour
Picture Searches & Research£25 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 £70.

For Copy-Editing, there is a minimum fee of £30.
