There are three payment methods for my services:
This is the most common payment approach.
Here I will invoice 50% of the copywriting fee before the project starts, and the remaining 50% at the deadline.
Prices will vary based on project scope, items to create, and fee ranges.
For ongoing copywriting – like blog posts, articles, and newsletters – it would be smarter for you to pay for my services using the monthly retainer system. These arrangements spell out deliverables and monthly rates and are usually for 6-month and 12-month agreements.
For monthly retainers, I will send an invoice at the beginning of each month for the work of the upcoming month. There’s a 30-day written cancellation clause with these agreements unless you got a discount with a 12-month contract.
I also include a 90-day trial period where you are free to cancel our contract at any time.
If your company tracks sales and pays royalties for each campaign, a royalty agreement can be a beneficial arrangement for both parties. Because everyone wins when the copy is successful!
I usually ask for 1% of every sale produced by my work. That would be on top of an up-front service fee.
It would be like a commission. Or a bonus!
Here’s Something Else for You to Consider
Copywriting for a campaign is rarely a “one-and-done” deal.
Effective marketing does involve a healthy stream of client-friendly content. Especially in the business-to-business field. And you need to deliver this content constantly through a variety of communication channels – such as television, radio, print media, search engines, websites, social media, and others.
Plus, usually one piece of copy connects to another – an email offer could have the link to a landing page that has a white paper for you to download. Those three items – the email, the landing page, and the report – must relate with consistent, valuable messages and clear calls to action.
Think of my copywriting services as an ongoing, valuable investment in the success of your business. The best way to approach it – think of your marketing campaign as a marathon, and not a sprint.
