Average Copywriter Rates

12 Mar

Ghostwriter FeesWhat is an average copywriter rate for your project?

Whether you’re a copywriter yourself or you’re a client requesting information from a copywriter, it’s perfectly natural – not to mention good business – to know exactly what your copywriting should cost and whether you’re getting a good deal.

As the client, do feel free to shop around and compare quotes. Thanks to sites like Elance, it’s very easy to find copywriters for your project.

However, when you’re getting quotes, make sure you look at the copywriter’s portfolio and contents of their bid along with the actual number they’re giving you. It should become obvious fairly quickly why one copywriter is quoting 2 bucks for your blog post and another is quoting $40.

The quality of copywriters varies very, very widely on the Internet. As with everything else, you get what you pay for. Be wary of copywriters who are charging what seems ridiculously too little for their services. Find a quote that appeals to you and then try to work something out based on your budgetary constraints. You will find that most copywriters will be flexible with their prices if they would really like to work with you.

Helpful hint: The quality of a copywriter’s work will always shine through (or not) in his or her bid for your project. If their writing is sucky in their bid and full of typos, your final product will be, too. On the other hand, if the writing is compelling and easy to read, you’re looking at a winner – even if the price they’re quoting you seems too good to be true.

Your New Year’s Resolutions for Business Are…

1 Jan

Happy New Year!

I hope you had a safe, happy, and blessed Christmas holiday – and super fun-filled New Year with lots of champagne and Auld Lang Syne. 🙂

Now that we’re into 2012, it’s time for your New Year’s Resolutions… and I’m not talking about shedding those holiday pounds (although that is definitely on my list!).

I’m talking about your New Year’s Business Resolutions, your plans to make 2012 the best year yet.

Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • Maintain your blog. A blog doesn’t do what it’s supposed to if you don’t post regularly. Make sure your blog is getting updated at least once a week.
  • Update your social media. Yup, same goes for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and all that fun stuff. If someone goes to check out your tweets and sees you haven’t posted an update since, oh, Valentine’s Day, you’re going to have problems. Learn how to make it easy with Hootsuite.
  • Get those monthly newsletters rolling. Online newsletters are an affordable way to develop relationships with your clients and spread the word about your business. Get out of the dark ages and get yourself a monthly newsletter!
  • Revamp your website. How is your website copy? Does it say exactly what you want it to? Is it getting enough visitors? Is it converting those visitors into clients? If not, you may want to invest in a 21st century website.
