What I do
I write words for your business. Services include:
- Website copywriting
- Business blog content
What I don’t do
I am not a website developer or social media manager (although I do manage these for my own business). My service is purely copywriting. I don’t upload content to clients’ websites or schedule their social media posts.
I like to keep things simple, so my preferred pricing method is per-project. The beauty of this is that you know exactly how much you are paying for my service from the outset. I don’t charge by the hour as the length of time it takes to write copy can vary hugely.
You can get a feel for my prices by visiting my fees page – How much? Please bear in mind this is a guide only – the quoted price will depend on a number of factors, such as complexity of subject matter and research required.
If you are a new client I will request 50% deposit before commencing work on your project and bill you for the remaining balance upon completion and sign-off. Payment is by bank transfer to my business account. Payment terms are 14 days.
I am a sole trader and my business (MK Word Studio) is not VAT registered.
Changes and revisions
Once we have agreed on brief and pricing, I will carry out the required research to write your copy. Research and planning are the most important part of a copywriting project.
Once I’ve researched your business area and planned your copy, I will send you a brief outline/structure of what I plan to write for your comments – this saves time in the long-run as you have the opportunity to give feedback at an early stage.
Once I receive the go ahead from you, I will write the first draft. My price will include a further 2 sets of revisions and a final proofread.
If you require more than 2 sets of revisions, this may incur an additional charge, however this is unlikely to happen if we’ve communicated clearly at the briefing and planning stage.
I will agree timescales with you before the project commences. I work part-time, around my family so I’m unlikely to take on your project if you require an urgent turnaround – partly due to the way I work but also because I don’t believe you will get high quality copy from a ‘rush job’.
Deadlines are important and I believe in delivering on time. However, I can’t be held responsible for missed deadlines due to circumstances beyond my control such as family illness, floods, war and acts of god. A degree of flexibility is required on both sides – if you’re unable to meet an agreed deadline, talk to me and we’ll agree a way forward.
Once I have received full and final payment, copyright of the work I produce will automatically be assigned to you. You can then use the work however you wish.
I will take every precaution to ensure content avoids errors, omissions, misrepresentations and other inaccuracies; however the final responsibility for published material belongs with you, the client.
I cannot accept responsibility or liability of any kind for any loss or damage, whether material, financial, commercial or reputational, that you incur as a result of your choosing to publish materials that I’ve worked on.
