Each copywriting project has several stages that directly involve you as the client.
Once you've told me about the project, we'll agree the brief to ensure that we both know exactly what you want me to do for you. If necessary, I'll help you prepare a simple brief based on my understanding of your requirements.
Next, I'll send you a written estimate or quotation, confirming what we've agreed. Usually, I'll also send two copies of the quotation and my Terms & Conditions in the post. To accept my quote, just email confirmation that you are instructing me to begin work. Please also return a signed hard copy of the quotation/Terms & Conditions.
I'll then do any required research, write the first draft and send this to you for review.
NOTE: My first draft is exactly what it says it is – a first draft. As such, it may have some typos, may not be completely 'polished' and may be shorter or longer than the finished result. From experience, I know that, for most people, it's often easier to look at a first draft, and then make changes. Later, I'll polish the style and spelling as well as any metatags on website pages.
When I've got your comments and changes from the first draft, I'll incorporate these into a second draft and develop the style of the writing as per the brief. I'll then send you the second draft and we'll agree any final changes.
When you're happy, I'll send a final draft for sign-off. Your written acceptance of the final draft (or my written confirmation of your verbal 'sign-off') will constitute your acceptance and sign-off for the work. Once you've done this, I'll send you an invoice: my standard settlement terms are NET 14 days from the date of invoice unless we have specifically agreed something different.
IMPORTANT: At each stage in the writing/review cycle, I'll need your feedback within 14 days of receipt of copy.
