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 would be happy to discuss an ongoing arrangement with you. I usually offer a little discount for ongoing work.

What do I charge?

Because I charge per project, you won’t find an hourly rate listed on this website. Frustrating, right? However, I know you’re curious about cost, so I’ve put together some ‘ballpark’ figures for my most popular projects, which are based on my many years of experience.

  • Blog copywriting — from $350 per blog (price depends upon length)

  • Brochure copy — starting at $650

  • Email copy — starting at $420

  • Business Tone of Voice and Style Guide — from $850.

I’ve also put together some great web packages, so be sure to check them out.

​What's included in the 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.

Please note that my fees are in line with Australian Industry Standards. Further information on copywriting fees in Australia can be found at The Clever Copywriting School.

Remember, the above prices are just ‘ballpark’. 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 fourteen (14) 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.
