Well now my feelings are hurt!
But seriously, yes, of course I know lots of copywriters. And I’m more than happy to make introductions.
Every copywriter is different, each with a different style, specialism and level of experience. When you’re choosing the right copywriter for your business and your brand, you need to make sure it’s a good fit – both in terms of how they write, and how they like to work – otherwise working together will always be a painful experience for you both.
It probably goes without saying that you’ll end up paying more for an experienced copywriter. But there are also plenty of creative newbies entering the wonderful world of content marketing, who are eager to have the opportunity to impress you.
If you want to know what you can expect to pay for a professional copywriter, check out the annual ProCopywriters survey…
Good news for you, is that being an active member of the freelance and copywriting communities, I have a large network of talented people I can call upon if/when necessary. And many of these people I know personally and trust to do a good job for your business.
But before I reach out to my network, answer me three things…
- What specific content are you looking for help with?
- Is previous experience in your sector important?
- How do you prefer to work (e.g. remote vs. office-based, fixed vs. flexible office hours)
I only ask because the answers you give will influence who I approach first.
And finally, I would never ask you or anyone I recommend for any sort of referral fee. As far as I’m concerned we’re all part of the same incredible community who want the opportunity to work on fantastic projects, producing the best work we possibly can for our clients.
