How I work

We start with a chat or an email to discuss your project. I’ll send you a client brief to learn about you and your business. This will provide me with more information about your project so I can give you an accurate quote.

Next, I’ll write a proposal. After you’ve signed the proposal, you’ll receive an invoice for a 50% payment. If the job is less than $500, I’ll ask you to pay 100% upfront. This is standard practice with copywriters.

Once the first payment is paid, we’ll organise a time for a consultation to go through the brief.

I’ll write a skeleton draft of the copy, which is one page of copy for approval of tone and direction. Once this is approved, I’ll write a first draft which will be delivered by a mutually agreed timeframe.

You’ll review the first draft and let me know if you want any changes – two rounds of reviews are included. Additional rounds will be charged extra.

I’ll email you the second draft of the copy and you sign off on the work. I’ll also send the invoice for the final 50% of the fee.

Once you’ve paid the final invoice, you will own copyright for the work. And I’ll ask for a testimonial I can use on my website.
