If you’re looking to hire a copywriter, chances are you’re shopping around.
You’ll have visited other copywriter’s and marketing agency’s websites to work out the best fit (and deal) for your project.
You might have noticed not many of them are forthcoming with their prices.
I’m not sure why this is, and who am I to question their motives. All I know is it’s not the way I like to do business. You’ve got a budget to stick to, so to avoid wasting your time here’s an estimation of my copywriting prices.
The return on investment you’ll get from working with me.
I’ll give you my quote as a flat project fee with no hidden costs or sneaky upsells.

Borrow my brain for an hour (or more) to talk about copywriting or to help you solve a problem with your copy.
£150 per hour
For longer-term engagements, or if you’d like to retain my services for a set number of days, it makes sense to work together on a day rate basis. In which case, my prices are:
Day rate: £300
Half-day rate: £180
Before you go any further, you should know that my minimum project fee is £500. So if it’s just a few wee bits of copy you’re after you might be better looking elsewhere. The ProCopywriters Directory is a good place to start.
Answers to questions people sometimes have about working with me.
What’s your lead time?
Generally, my lead time is 2 weeks for taking on a new project. I might be able to squeeze urgent jobs in on a shorter timescale, but I’ll charge a 20% rush fee. If I’m busy, you might have to wait a bit longer before we can work together.
I never work with more than 2 or 3 clients at a time so I can give each project the attention it deserves – that’s why sometimes you may have to join a queue. It’s totally worth it though.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
For projects over £1,000, I ask for a 50% deposit upfront with the remaining 50% due within 30 days of sign off.
I’m also happy to talk about payment plans if this is something you think might help you.
Do you charge per word?
Nooope. Never. Absolutely not. My project prices are primarily value-based, meaning you’re paying for the quality of the end product, not the number of words.
Can I get a free writing sample?
No, I don’t work for free.
However, I understand that working with me represents a serious investment so I’m happy to provide a short, tailored writing sample for £100.
Send me some of your existing copy (no more than 300 words) and I’d be delighted to rework it to show you what I can do.
