After I’ve responded to your initial enquiry (within 24 hours) I’ll schedule a short introduction call to see if we’re a good fit. We’ll talk about your project details, budget and timeline. You can tell me about your business and ask any questions.
Now we’ve had a quick chat, I have a good idea about what you do and the copy problems you need to solve. It’s time to talk business.
To tease out the copywriting gold I’ll email you a Q+A. This nuts out the finer details to define your project scope and vision. The more information you provide the better as this brief will set the course for the entire project. Need help with your creative brief? No worries – just let me know.
Proposal + Quote
Once we’re both happy with the brief I’ll create a proposal/quote for you. Some projects fit into my regular prices, however, others are quoted specific to your needs. This includes a clear outline of expectations, an itemised list of what I’ll deliver, my earliest available start date and proposed project timeline and quote.
Before I start working my magic the quote must be accepted, signed and returned with a 50% deposit. We’ll both have a copy of the agreement which includes my terms + conditions. This protects both parties and guarantees the work I create is used solely for you. Sign the dotted line and I start work.
What makes your business tick? Before I put pen to paper, I plan, strategise and understand your audience’s needs and wants, brand voice and key messages. I’ll research your competitors and customers to uncover the language they use and their search intent. I’m as passionate about your business, as I am about my own.
It’s time to write.
You could spend hours running in the content writing hamster wheel. But, thankfully you don’t have to. I’m here to tell the world why your business matters through creative copy. I take what I’ve learnt through the brief and research and turn it into effective content, ensuring your brand’s story is consistent across all spaces.
After your first draft is finished any feedback will be incorporated. I’ll continue to tap away at the keys and work hard on your copy.
The second review will be your chance to make final edits. Two rounds of revisions are included in TLT’s packages to fine-tune the copy. Revisions are edits that are made within the timeframe specified in your proposal and don’t deviate from the brief and project scope you signed off on.
If you need more changes they’ll be charged at an hourly rate. Creative briefs that are perfected from the start result in minimal edits through the refining stages.
All revisions are satisfied and my copywriting work is complete. The final copy of your content is sent to you.
By now you should be excited, buzzing at your desk like a typewriter on crack. Once the final invoice is paid and content accepted, the copyright is transferred to you and your (my) words are there to shout to the world.
Happy with your content? I ask all my clients for a testimonial or Google My Business review to feature on my site as there’s nothing like a good recommendation! This also includes a mention back to your website, which helps you out too. Now we’re both happy humans. 🙂
