How do I charge?

To keep things simple, I charge per project, which means that the quote you’re provided with is all you will pay. No hidden extras, no extra charges. Just one affordable, fixed price based on your copywriting needs.

Of course, if you'd like to work with me on a longer-term basis, I'm very happy to discuss an ongoing copywriter fee with you.

What do I charge?

I'm going to be honest and let you know that I'm not cheap. But when it comes to high-quality, credible health information do you really want cheap?

My copywriter fee reflect my years of experience, my skills, and the fact that I'm a specialist when it comes to writing credible health and medical copy, that includes a full list of references where appropriate. And honestly, not all copywriters can deliver that.

If you needed brain surgery, you wouldn't visit a GP, or even a generalist surgeon. You'd look for a specialist who has done it before! So think of me as your 'brain surgeon for your business', and know that I've written clinically accurate, high-quality health copy before, so I know how to do it for you!

Because I charge per project, you won’t find an hourly rate listed on this website. Frustrating, right?

However, my copywriter fees are in line with Australian Industry Standards. Further information on copywriting fees in Australia can be found at The Clever Copywriting School

But to give you an idea on where my prices are at, I've put together some web packages, so be sure to check them out.

​What's included in my fee?

The fee I quote you will include:

  • Briefing time on the phone or via Skype (length dependent upon project). Face-to-face meetings will incur an extra charge.
  • All necessary research and reading for me to complete your project
  • Copywriting
  • Two (2) rounds of revisions
  • Proofreading.

 A detailed proposal, and an obligation-free quote outlining the scope of the project, key deliverables and a timeline, will be provided after an initial chat.

What about payment?

50% of the quoted fee is required upfront, with the remaining balance due seven (7) days after the final invoice has been sent. The final invoice will be sent with the first draft of copy.

Preferred methods of payment are direct bank transfer and PayPal.

Full details of my payment policy are included in my Copywriting Terms and Conditions. If you have any queries regarding payment, please contact me.
