How I work
10 simple steps to words that sparkle and sell
Wondering how this freelance copywriter works? Here’s a handy step-by-step guide to my process:
Your Title Goes Here
Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.
Step 1: Enquiry
You contact me to let me know you’re interested in working together.
Step 2: Initial chat
We book a time for a free no-pressure initial chat via phone or Zoom (around 20 mins). During this call, I’ll ask for some basic info about your business, project and timescales so I can put together an accurate quote for you. I’ll also tell you a little more about how I work and answer any questions you have.
Step 3: Proposal
If we both think I’m the right fit for your project, I’ll put together and email you a no-obligation proposal after our initial chat. This’ll outline how I can help you, how much it’ll cost and all the inclusions. You’ll also find my T&Cs for you to check.
Step 4: Agreement & initial payment
If you want to go ahead and book me, you’ll need to e-sign the proposal and pay a non-negotiable 50% commencement fee. This confirms your booking and locks your project into my schedule. (N.B. For small projects under £400 and all bundles, I ask for full payment upfront.)
Step 5: Brief
Once your booking is confirmed, it’s time for us to complete the brief together. This is a super important part of the process because the better I understand what you do and what you want, the better the copy you’ll get.
I’ll send you a couple of briefing forms to fill in: one for your business and the other for your project. After you’ve done this, we’ll then have a briefing call (around 60 mins) so we can talk through your answers and flesh them out.
Step 6: Research
After the brief is complete, I’ll do any necessary background research and ask you to send me any extra info I need to do the job.
Step 7: First draft & revision round
It’s finally time for me to put fingers to keyboard! I’ll get cracking with a first draft and send this to you by an agreed date. You’ll then have 14 days to request any revisions (minor edits) you’d like.
Step 8 : Second draft & revision round
I’ll make any changes you’ve requested and send you a second draft by an agreed date. You’ll have another 14 days to request any final revisions so we can get the copy just right.
Step 9: Finished copy & final payment
I’ll send you your finished copy and invoice you for any remaining balance, payable within 14 days. As soon as you’ve settled up, the copyright transfers to you and the work officially becomes yours to use as you wish.
Step 10: High fives!
We celebrate a successful copywriting project and look forward to working together again.
