FEES & FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What are the fees for your services?
A: In effort to best serve you, instead of posting fees, the first step is to have a thorough discussion about your project and its objectives. Once I have a good understanding of your needs, I can quote you a price and give you a realistic deadline.
Q: What do your fees include?
A: My fees include the following:
1. All of the work that we negotiate in advance during our initial
2. Project research.
3. An initial draft of the project.
4. One (1) Revision.
5. The final draft.
Q: How long does it take for you to finish a project?
A: The time that it takes me to finish a project varies depending on the (business) season that we’re in, and also the amount of projects that I already have in queue. Once I have a good understanding of your project’s size and scope, I can then give you a ball park turnaround time.
Q: I want to contact you about an upcoming project, just to chat to see if the collaboration would be a good fit for each of us. I also have more questions, am I under any obligation to buy if I e-mail you?
A: Initial consults are free. You are under no obligation to buy.
Q: I’m in Canada, and you’re in New York. Do we have to meet in person?
A: Nope. As long as you have internet access, we can communicate by e-mail or skype. We can also communicate by phone, but i prefer to use skype and e-mail.
Q: I read on your homepage that you do international work, what languages do you offer your writing in?
A: Currently I offer my writing in English only. I am proficient in reading, writing, and speaking English. It is my first language.
Q: Do you do all of the writing yourself, or do you outsource projects?
A: I do all of the writing myself. I have a team of editors, and graphic designers that I do use if the project requires.
Q: Do you offer website development and graphic designing along with your copywriting services?
A: I only create marketing copy, and do not do website development or graphic designing. However, I can put a team together that i work with regularly that helps provide these services.
Q: How do I reach you?
Q: How do I go about hiring you?
A: Initial contact is best done by email. Contact me here
Q: Do I have to sign a contract?
A: I don’t require a contract, however, once we agree to work on a project, we need to document all of the work required, and agree to all of the terms. To accomplish this I send my clients an invoice (sometimes also called an assignment spec sheet) that contains a short description of the project, the fee, the deadline, when payment is due, and anything else that we may have discussed during the initial consult.
Q: Do you require money upfront?
A: Yes. Once we have had our initial consult, and the invoice template is completed and returned, I require 30% of my total fee (non-refundable) to start the initial draft. Once you have received the initial draft, 40% of the fee will be required. Upon completion of the project, the remaining 30% will be due.
