Quality writing can mean the difference between selling your site's sock off or your beautiful products languishing on the shelf. Our hourly rate for copywriting is $80 AUD/hour and is billed along with your other design work.
Below are some commonly asked questions regarding your copy writing needs:
Q: What information do you need to provide a quote?
A: To quote accurately, I need to know a bit of detail:
How many pages of copy are you after?
What kind of pages are you after? (e.g. Web, corporate profile, brochure, speech)
If web, what are the pages? (e.g. Home, About Us, Services)
How many words per page are you anticipating? (Or are you happy to go with my recommendation?)
Will you be relying on traffic from the search engines? (i.e. Will you need your site optimised for search engines?)
What’s your deadline?
Q:How long will it take?
A: Again, it all depends on the specifics of the job, how much information you can supply, and how long you take to review the work. A single page of copy, say 400 words, can be turned around in 1-2 days if you’re able to supply all the information I need, and you review fairly promptly.
Q: Can I suggest changes to your copy?
A: Yes by all means. I’m not precious about my work. However, if you suggest a change that, in my professional opinion, is unwise, I’ll advise against it then leave the final decision to you
Q: Do we need to meet in person?
A: No. Only in rare cases is a face-to-face meeting required. All correspondence can be done via our online collaboration tool BasecampHQ or via email.
Q: I’m in another country, can you still write my copy?
A: Yes! Thanks to the internet I work for clients anywhere in the world.
Q: Is my project too big or too small?
A: Probably not. Whether it’s a one-line ad or a 300 page manual, I’m happy to help.
Q: Do you also do editing?
A: Yes. Some clients find it more affordable to write their own copy and have me simply edit their work. This can be a good option, especially for clients on a tight budget.
Q: What is Copywriting?
A: Copywriting means the writing that promotes your business. This includes brochures, websites, letters, print ads, Google AdWords, articles, scripts, etc..
Q: Can you help me with copyright?
A: No. Copyright is about legal ownership of something, and is totally unrelated to Copywriting
Q: Why are search engines important to me?
A: 85% of all website traffic is driven by search engines. The only online activity more popular than search is email.
Q: How do search engines decide on their rankings?
A: You can’t pay a search engine in return for a high ranking. You can only get a high ranking if your content is seen as relevant by the search engines or if you pay for it in advertising.
Q: Can’t I just pay for a high ranking?
A: No. The biggest concern for search engine companies like Google is finding content that will bring them more traffic (and thus more advertising revenue). In other words, their results must be relevant. Relevant results makes for a good search engine; irrelevant results makes for a short-lived search engine.
Most search engines these days return two types of results whenever you click Search:
Natural/Organic – The ‘real’ search results.
The results that most users are looking for and which take up most of the window. For most searches, the search engine displays a long list of links to sites with content which is related to the word you searched for. These results are ranked according to how relevant and important they are.
Paid – Pure advertising.
This is how the search engines make their money. Advertisers pay the search engines to display their ad whenever someone searches for a word which is related to their product or service. These ads look similar to the natural search results, but are normally labelled “Sponsored Links”, and generally take up a smaller portion of the window.
Q: How do I get an high SEO ranking?
A: There are 5 main steps (please also read our site on SEO)
Q: What is keyword analysis?
A: The first thing you need to do when you begin chasing a good search engine ranking is decide which words you want to rank well for. This is called keyword analysis or keyword research. It involves a bit of research and a good knowledge of your business, the benefits you offer your customers, and the reasons they’re searching
Last note: The difference between "copyright" and "Copywriting"
Some of our clients have, in the past, gotten these two terms mixed up:
Copyright is the automatic protection artists, designers and other creative people get to prevent others from plagiarising or copying their work.
Copywriting is writing persuasive, clever text for your brochures, websites and ads.
