Frequently Asked Questions

This might be the first time you’re considering to work with a copywriter so you have questions.

I’ve tried to answer as many as possible but if you have a specific question, contact me.

What is copywriting?
Put simply, copywriting equals


Some people can write, others can create copy that makes people want to know more about your business or buy your product.

How much do copywriters charge?

Copywriters come in all shapes and sizes, like any other industry. In most cases you get what you pay for. 

Copywriters can be roughly divided into three groups:

Those starting out charge between $50-$70 per hour. 

The more experienced copywriters will charge anywhere between $75-$120.

Then there are those who work mainly for corporate brands and their hourly rate ranges from $125-$200. 


How much do you charge?
Don’t you hate it when copywriters won’t tell you how much they charge per hour?

I certainly do. So I’m transparent about my hourly rate: $75. My rate is reasonable compared to a lot of other copywriters and that’s how I like it.

I quote on each project and provide you with a detailed proposal which includes a briefing time, in-depth research, three drafts and two rounds of revisions. This is a set price so it means no unexpected surprises – because I don’t like them either.

Check out my Services page for rough prices.

How long does it take to write copy for a website?
The answer depends on the size of the website and how quick you are to return the drafts. The quicker you review a draft and the more detail you provide, the faster we’ll get to the final result.

I can usually finalise website copy within two weeks.

How many times do I get to review the copy?
Each copywriting quote includes two rounds of revisions. When you receive the first draft, you have the opportunity to comment on every single word, sentence and paragraph by using *Microsoft Word Track Changes. At this stage anything is open for discussion and change. *If you don’t know how to use it, I can explain it to you on the phone.

With your detailed feedback, I write the second draft which you review once again with Track Changes. At this stage we’re looking at minor changes and tweaks to ensure we get the message right.

You then receive the final draft – and you’re ready to publish.

Do you require a deposit?

Yes. You pay a 50% deposit before we get started.

The final invoice will be sent 10 days after supplying you with the first draft (payment terms are 7 days).

Why should I use a copywriter?
Anyone can write, right? Sure. But not everyone has the skill to take the heart and soul of your business and translate it into click-winning copy. Or maybe you’re the visionary type  but you don’t know how to put your lifechanging ideas into words – that’s where I come in.

How much copywriting experience do you have?
I’ve been writing professionally since 2009 when magazines and websites first started publishing my articles and blogs. I branched out into websites, flyers, brochures, ads, newsletters, press releases, LinkedIn profiles and everything marketing-related in 2014.

I’ve also completed an in-depth SEO course covering the basics of SEO , the knitty-gritty of technical audits, meta descriptions and title tags, backlinks and a whole host of other things.

Why should I pick you?
I’m glad you asked.

Finding the right copywriter is important. You want to work with someone you trust because your business is an extension of who you are.

You also  want to work with someone who makes you feel like a person, not a number.

For this reason I take on fewer jobs because I believe in doing things well. And I like to get know my clients.

My clients tend to come back to me with multiple projects because I understand their business and they like the way I work.

Can I meet you?
A face-to-face meeting is generally not necessary as we can discuss everything over the phone, via Skype or email.

If you prefer to meet, bear in mind that I live in country south-west Victoria and travel/meeting time is at your expense.

Where do you live?
I live in a tiny country town called Cobden in the Western District of Victoria. The nearest city is Warrnambool.

I’m surrounded by paddocks and cows – how’s that for inspiration.

Wanna know my secret?

I’m no ordinary copywriter.

In fact, I’m a think-outside-the-box content creator who has an amazing way with words.

I take your business ideas and translate them into copy that engages, compels and sells.

How cool is that?
