Freelance Copywriter Rates
Freelance copywriter rates are all across the board. There are teenagers in India whipping out articles for pennies on the dollar and there are pot-bellied homebodies in Boca Raton charging an arm and a leg. My rates are in the upper-mid range. Why? Because I take your business seriously. I do my research, I keep my word, and I love what I do. As a result, I build lasting relationships with my clients based on sharing creative enlightenment and delivering on promises.
Given that each copywriting project varies greatly depending upon its type, scope, and complexity, I provide custom price quotes for each. Most projects are quoted as a fixed-price rate, which allows my clients to budget in advance and clearly anticipate the value behind each deliverable. Copy editing, proofing, and special case projects are based on a per word basis or hourly rate. For a ballpark idea of my copywriting rates, please take a peek at the price ranges listed below. If you’ve got a project in mind and are eager to get started, please contact me with the specs and you’ll receive a no-obligation project estimate made just for you.
Powerhouse brands are those that leverage language to relate to customers and compel them to take action.

($50-200 per page)
Blog Articles & Content Marketing
Blog articles, article marketing, and content marketing do wonders for positioning your business as an industry leader, capturing leads, and more. I am available to write articles for your website, business blog, or trade magazines. I will even draft query letters and/or ghostwrite articles on your behalf to be published in third-party publications. Need to manage your content marketing strategy? I’ll construct your editorial calendar to integrate all of your content production and publication across the web. ($35/ 500-700 words)
Climbing to the top of search engine rankings depends on implementing the right SEO strategies. Rather than trying to hack SEO with homemade tricks, hire a pro who knows SEO and increase your site’s exposure almost overnight. ($200 website SEO consultation)
Writing a book is one of the best ways to position yourself as an expert and grow your list by collecting new leads. If you’re short on time, inspiration, or writing willpower, hire me to write your book proposal or ghostwrite the entire book for you – from conception to line-by-line proofing. ($100 and up for book proposal, $850 and up for books)
Copy Editing & Proofreading
If you’ve gone cross-eyed staring at your own drafts, or simply need a grammatical tune-up, I’m here to polish, proof, and beef-up your writing. I am available to edit just about everything including web content, manuscripts, eBooks, college essays, legal memoranda and more. ($.03-$.07 cents per word, depending on level of edits. $50 minimum per project)
There are plenty of copywriters who charge a great deal more than I do and plenty of copywriters who promise impossibly low quotes. My copywriting rates are towards the middle of the copywriting scale, and my clients will tell you that I provide outstanding value for the price. The project estimate I quote for your job will include:
- Research and reading
- Copywriting for the specified number of pages/ elements
- Two rounds of revisions
Once we’ve settled on an agreement, any meetings held over the phone or via Skype are billed at an hourly rate. Why? Some of my clients like to brief me over email and then wait for the finished product while others prefer in-person consultations. I’ll adapt to whatever your style and needs may be. We can talk about the weather or the writing, but in order to protect my time I’ve got to keep us on the clock.
I accept credit card payments, bank transfers, and transfers via PayPal. A deposit (typically 50%) is always required to secure my time. Why do I ask for 50% up front? Because it puts us both on the hook to show up and do our best work.
Whether you’re about to a hire a freelance copywriter for the first or fiftieth time, you may feel a little shaky about hiring someone online. Is she a real human? Does she speak English? Can I trust her with my business, my vision, my investment? I understand the hesitation, which is why I offer a satisfaction guarantee. With every project estimate, you’ll receive a detailed list of deliverables, specified timeline and 2 free rounds of editing. Not to mention that you and I will be in close communication throughout the project to ensure that there are no surprises. Like you, I value my time, money, and reputation. That is why you can count on my candid professional insights, a transparent working relationship, quality copy, and swift turnaround.

Because my freelance copywriter rates are project-specific, all copywriting consultations are entirely free and give us the opportunity to determine if I ‘m the right fit for you. We’ll chat via phone or skype and then you can make an informed decision about how you’d like to move forward. I look forward to hearing from you!
