Q- What type of work do you do?
"Sales funnels, video scripts, web pages. I have experience writing and setting up websites, mainly hosted platforms. Hosted platforms like WordPress, Weebly or Wix. These platforms use cloud software and you create your own design. The analytics are done for you. It's easy."
"I have been writing blog posts for over 3 years now. I have gone through the "blood, sweat, and tears," of writing my own websites and blogs. I welcome small business owners. You may need a mission statement or need to improve your headlines."
"I also write business letters and resumes. I will help you find the right template for your job search or the right words for your cover letter."
Q- Why should I hire you?
"I have solid writing and research skills, I have recently finished several copy writing courses. My knowledge is fresh. I have just completed three websites for clients, doing both the writing and design myself. I have ten years of University education, plus a creative writing diploma with an honors standing."
"I keep updating my skills and knowledge every week."
"My prices are reasonable.
Last, but not least, I give great customer service! Included in my package are good communication skills."
Q-Do you include revisions in your price?
"Of course, that is part of the writing process. I pride myself on quality work. For this reason I don't do rush jobs. Good writing takes time. I can't imagine working with clients and not doing some revision work. It's part of what makes great copy work."
Q- What if I don't like your work?
"We will work together on resolving issues." "I am easy to get along with. I guarantee my work." Most things are easy to change."
Q- What are your areas of expertise?
"My passion is writing sports content and related health and fitness information. I have a social sciences background with electives in English and creative writing."
Q- Do you write social media profiles?
"Yes, the way your profile reads is important to your credibility as a business person, whether you are selling products or services. I have had lots of practice writing my own, especially on LinkedIn."
Q- What about Facebook Ads?
"I have learned how to write Facebook Ads, and I am in the process of writing some for my own business. I just completed a work shop on this. If used properly, it's a lead generation tool. Unfortunately, it's a bit of trial and error and it can be quite expensive."
Q- What about research?
"Several years of university writing has taught me how to research effectively. I have taken research methods and statistics courses."
Q- Do you still write traditional ads?
"Yes, I have learned the old ad writing techniques as well." Many people still like this approach, especially if you are selling consumer products. Traditional ads have a more direct approach to advertising and are likely to be more abrasive to their audiences."
Q- Do I have to pay an hourly rate to consult with you about my project?
"No, the initial consultation is free, after that my hourly rate of $50 will be charged. I usually charge by the project, not the hour, unless you need multiple edits. Most of the time things are done by email unless I need to meet with a team."
"If you live out of town, we can Skype."
How do I charge fees?
"A flat fee is charged for each project piece. I include 3 revisions for free, and then any other changes will be charged half of my hourly rate. My rates coincide with my experience and the rates suggested for Canadian Copywriters.The main considerations are total words and time combined plus taxes."
Do I require a deposit?
"Only if the project is longer term, such as a website or case study. A 100 dollar deposit would act as a potential cancellation fee. If the site is to be maintained over time, then a modest retention fee will be required. For example, you might need a monthly blog or update each month."
Need Help with Your Content?
"Research will shine a light on your best benefits. Research will determine your target audience."
"No matter what you are selling, you start by gathering all the information about it."
