When asked about rates, some copywriters simply charge $X.00 per word. Is this how I work?
No, it isn’t. And frankly, you shouldn’t want copy rates by the word either. Why not?
“I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”Mark Twain
Get it? Good writing is concise writing—it’s much better (and more of a challenge) than wordy, sloppy writing.
Good copy uses one crystal-clear word in place of five foggy words.
It’s copywriting that gets read, and most importantly, copywriting that converts.
That’s truly what you want, isn’t it?
Think about it:
Gas? Sold by the gallon.
Lettuce? Sold by the pound.
Now, would you put good copywriting—the delicate pairing of words that lift a company from the ashes of mediocrity up to the mountain tops of success—right next to fuel or produce?
That’s why I don’t simply charge by the word, as if it were a mere commodity.
While I don’t charge by the word, here’s what I do offer:
- Blog packages: Two blogs of 800 words for $550, four blogs for $1,000. This includes basic research and one round of amends (You can also make the wise investment of semi-monthly blogs and keep your beautiful content flowing. Contact me for more info).
- Basic web page– $300 per page. This is the base rate that includes keyword research and SEO-optimization, two rounds of amends, along with in-depth research into your company’s style, branding and tone of voice (invaluable as you continue to grow your business).
- Press release- $350.
Again, this is just an idea of what to expect for rates when we team up. However, one thing that I already know about you is that you’re unique! So you can be certain that everything that I do for you will fit you better than your favorite pair of shoes, and more importantly will deeply resonate with your customers.
So let’s chat to create a tailored proposal for you.
