How do we get started?

Knowing exactly what you’re looking for is the key to any successful copywriting project. After your initial contact I will call or visit to learn more about your aims and objectives. I will then put together a Project Brief which will include details of your writing requirements, information on deadlines and a quotation. This gives you a clear indication of both cost and timescales for your specific project.

What kind of information do you need?

This will depend on the nature of the writing project but I will certainly want to know about your business. This includes information on your existing client base and competitors as well as your products and services.

What are your rates?

For a small project such as a Press Release or short editing assignment I charge an hourly rate. For larger projects I work for a pre-arranged fee. Copywriting fees cover research, writing, proofreading and editing. If the copy needs to be modified, two revisions are included free of charge. A deposit of 25% is required upfront to secure the project, with the balance due once the project is completed and you are happy with the outcome.

Karen is a professional. During the projects we have collaborated on, all copy that she has produced has been punctual and the highest quality. I have no hesitation in recommending her.Justin Moseley, Green Marine Solutions

What’s the difference between Copybreak and using an agency?

As a freelance copywriter I can devote my working day wholeheartedly to your project. Your copy will be consistent – benefiting from the same tone of voice and style throughout. Unlike an agency, I also don’t have to worry about office rates and expensive overheads – savings I pass directly on to you.

What about business confidentiality?

I am happy to sign Contract Agreements and Confidentiality Statements relating to your business. All information I receive is treated as confidential and not shared with any other party, unless I have your explicit permission to do so.

The articles were extremely well written and eloquent, really engaging our target audience. We would definitely use Copybreak services again.Christine McMillan, Technical Retail Services

Do you design websites?

This is not something I do. My forte is words, which is arguably the most important thing on any website! I do however have a large network of business associates – including web designers and graphic designers – which I am happy to recommend.

If you have a question which isn’t covered in this section you can always get in touch through our online contact form. You will also find a lot of related information on our Copybreak Services page.
