Copywriting

 
 

As a copywriter I work with you to:

  • Negotiate a package or project which reflects your voice and may include: researching, interviewing, finding images, writing, formatting text, referencing and following a style guide
  • Draft ‘raw’ text or content of web pages, so it is ready to publish, and include grammar rules, tables and charts, and formatting of footnotes and end notes
  • Give consideration to the inclusion of images, SEO and audio
  • Correct and change incorrect spelling
  • Correct incorrect grammar, English language idioms and punctuation
  • Correct inconsistencies of style and referencing rules

I would most commonly help you to create:

  • Website copy
  • Blog posts
  • Annual reports
  • Marketing literature
  • Research documents
  • Correspondence such as letters, emails and newsletters
  • Social media such as tweets, facebook posts, articles and online advertising
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Case studies for companies who have gone out of their way for customers

Payment:

We would hold a complementary initial meeting to define and agree a planning and strategy brief, and to assess the bespoke needs of each client before work can begin.

Per hour (English as a first language) £50 to cover:

  • Research time
  • Significant changes to the topic and content

Per project ( English as a first language) negotiable on submission of a detailed “copy write request’* for a proposal explanation of the required work
