One of the first things you probably want to know is what my hourly copywriting rates are.
It may seem like a pretty straightforward question, but because I charge each project based on the scope and complexity of work, quoting an hourly rate won’t really give you an accurate idea of what your final cost may be.
That’s why I’ve developed the chart below to provide you with some ballpark estimates for rates and timeframes, based on similar copywriting projects I’ve completed in the past.
How it works
Each time frame spans the likely cost range for the projects listed to the side, as well as how long those projects may take to complete.
For example, an A4 flyer may take 1–2 weeks and cost from $250–$700 depending on whether it’s single or double-sided and how much research may be required, as will a letter of introduction. A medium website may take 5–8 weeks and cost $1500–$3500.
It really depends on the individual requirements of each project (which can vary significantly), but this should help give you an idea of what to expect – and I’m always happy to offer options to work within your budget where possible.
Consultation & Travel Costs
Because I’m based in Strathalbyn, travelling to Adelaide for meetings can chew up 2-3 hours of time in travel alone, which isn’t the best way to spend your project budget. That’s why I encourage meetings either over the phone, or via Skype. Whatever you’re most comfortable with.
If you really feel the need for a face-to-face meeting, your initial consultation will be free, but travel fees will apply: $165 to Adelaide, or $88 to Mt Barker (return / GST inclusive).
All subsequent meetings are free for the first half hour (20 minutes via Skype/phone), then consultation fees of $80p/h +GST will apply in addition to any travel costs.
Alternatively, I invite you to head up to beautiful Strathalbyn to visit me by appointment, free of charge.
I’ll even throw in a cup of tea and a bikkie!
For a detailed quote specific to your project, the best place to start is by completing my Copywriting Project Brief, or calling me to discuss your needs. Whatever work best for you!
I also offer retainer rates for ongoing projects and special rates for charity and not-for-profit groups.
