How much does a freelance copywriter charge?
Freelance copywriter rates vary massively, so I’ll keep this as simple as possible.
I charge for copywriting in three ways based on standard industry rates.
I offer three packages for typical website copywriting projects.
A PROJECT FEE
Based on length of copy, research required, subject matter, purpose & deadline.
For copywriting retainers and regular work I charge a standard day rate of £475.
Terms & conditions
I ask 30% of the agreed fee is paid at the commencement of the project. I send an invoice for the remaining balance upon completion.
Payment is on strict 14-day terms.
Ownership and copyright of content remains with me until full payment. I will pursue my intellectual rights to ownership of content if used before full payment.
If you wish to change or add to the scope of the agreed brief after the project begins, additional fees may apply.
Project fees include up to two rounds of revisions after submission of the initial draft, providing that the suggested amendments fall within the specification of the agreed brief.
If you cancel the project part-way through and before submission, I charge 50% of the agreed fee. Once I provide an initial draft submitted the full fee will apply.
If I don’t receive a response from you within 14 days of submission of the work, the project is considered complete and an invoice issued.
In the event of late payment an additional interest fee may be charged. Non-payments will be referred to a debt recovery agency.
