I’m a UK self-employed copywriter, and I generally charge on a per-task or per-project basis.
If the project’s content is subject to multiple stakeholder reviews, then hourly billing or a day rate might work better.
- For all clients and one-off projects, payment terms are a strict 30 days.
- My per-task and per-project fees include two rounds of revisions after I’ve submitted my initial first draft.
- If you require further amendments or want to make significant changes beyond the agreed brief, then additional fees may occur.
- Until I receive the full payment, the ownership and copyright of my work will reside with me.
What determines your copywriting rates?
The short answer is time. If a copywriting brief requires in-depth research and discussions with clients and stakeholders, it will take more time to complete.
Word length also plays a part, but in my experience, I’ve found that short-form copy requires just as much time as long-form assignments—there’s more to writing than counting words.
