You’ve had a look around and you like what you see. (Thanks!)
But you’ve probably got some questions, yes?
That’s cool. Most people do. So I’ve put together a list of the most commonly asked questions.
What unique skills do you have, that I can't get with an ordinary copywriter?
As a health writer, I have developed very specific skills, which include:
a sound knowledge of the health and wellness industry, and what common health concerns Australians are facing
knowing how to write for the health and wellness industry
writing to empower health change
re-writing complex information so the average person can understand it
an ability to read scientific studies and interpret the information
highly developed research skills.
Where do you source your information?
Do you provide references?
How much do you charge?
Well, that depends on what you want. Because each project is different, there is no one-size-fits-all quote. The best way to determine how much your job will cost is for us to sit down and have a chat about your needs. However, the quote will be based upon:
the size of the project
the degree of background research required
the quantity and quality of background information supplied
the number and length of meetings required
the expected number of amends.
The minimum project fee is $350
Will I receive a quote for my job?
Do I need to make a payment upfront?
Yes! I request 50% of the total fee upfront, which is standard industry procedure. Balance of payment is due 7 days after delivery of the first draft of your copy.
Are there other terms and conditions I should be aware of?
Do you offer discounts for multiple projects?
No. But rest assured that I will quote you the best price that I can, based on my level of skill, and years of experience.
Do you write other content besides health and medical?
Can we meet face-to-face?
Not usually. Most client briefings can be done via the phone, email or Skype. However, if you really wish to meet in person, it will incur an extra fee.
If we were to meet in a cafe, would you drink tea or coffee?
