What does a copywriter do?
It’s this simple: I string words together to make you look great and have your customers scrambling to call.
Why should I hire someone to write for me?
Of course, you can write everything yourself. But are you sure you can put your potential customer first and tell them the things they really want and need to know? Can you really tell them a story that compels them to hire you? And is that really a good use of your time?
I’ll give you just the right words while you get on with what you do best. And you can skip putting customers off with typos, too much talk of yourselves and sentences that go nowhere.
How much is it going to cost?
OK, it would be easier if I just posted my rates here. But no two projects are the same. Getting the right words for you, on time, is the vital bit.
Call me or drop me an email and tell me a bit about what you’re looking for. It’s completely free.
I’ll listen, ask lots of questions and then offer you a firm quote for the whole project, based on your word count, how much research is needed and your timeframe. And if I don’t think I’m the right person to help you, I might be able to recommend someone who can.

- A telephone or Skype consultation to get to know your business, your style and your objectives.
- Studying your sector so I can describe your unique value.
- Basic keyword research for SEO.
- Copywriting to grab your clients’ attention, answer their questions and encourage them to work with you.
- Proofreading and editing to make sure everything is error-free.
- Up to two rounds of revisions, so you get just the right words.
