Frequently Asked Questions
Whether hiring a copywriter is new to you or not, you’re bound to have some questions. Luckily, I’ve been asked quite a few questions from business owners and I’ve put the answers right here in one handy place.
Do you offer revisions?
Yep! I offer a free round of revisions on all the copy I write. This means that I can finesse it for you just the way you want it after writing up the first version.
What’s the process of hiring you?
First of all I ask you to fill out a short questionnaire about your business. These questions are pretty deep, but the reason I ask for them before setting up a discovery call is to see if we’d be a good fit to work together.
I reject requests to work with me from business owners who I feel would be better served by someone else. It’s nothing personal, I just believe that working with perfect-fit clients is the best way to ensure that I produce my best work.
If I feel like we might be a good fit to work together then I’ll invite you on a discovery call. This is just a 30 minute chat to talk about your needs and to get any additional information about what you might need.
If we decide to go ahead and work together I’ll send you a 50% commencement invoice and once you pay your project is officially locked in my calendar.
I’m afraid you won’t sound like me - how do you write like me and not you?
This is the #1 fear of all business owners and I’m glad they worry about it because it means they take their copy seriously.
I carry out my own process of what I like to call “voice analysis” to help me nail your brand voice. That involves running your copy through some different programs to get a feel for cadence, tone and the type of vocabulary that you use.
I also take a deep dive and stalk you a bit on social media and bring all my notes together in one document.
Not only this, but I make sure I pull out things like your brand voice, values and tone during the copybrief meeting.
Here are quotes from my actual clients:
“The copy sounds like me when I read it!” – Alex Barron, French in Plain Sight
“Kerry tailored the copy to us so much, it was like someone studied us for a year to write a biography.” – Elena and Semion Tsysaruk, Create & Elate Productions
“The fact that you do an analysis and spend a lot of time diving into who I am, why I do what I do, and HOW I communicate it to my people is invaluable.” Mariah Liszewski, Mariah Magazine Studios
Do you write other copy apart from SEO content and email campaigns?
Yes I do, it’s just that those two services are what I emphasise the most. If you have any other type of copy that you want written, feel free to drop me an email and I’ll let you know if I’m currently available for your type of project.
The only things I don’t write are Facebook and PPC ads.
What can I say? I’m an organic traffic kinda girl.
Can I see your writing portfolio?
Sure you can.
At the time of writing I haven’t made it live yet because I’m working on making it interactive and curating it so it really reflects the work that went behind the words.
If you’d like some writing examples just get in touch and I’ll fire some your way (and don’t worry I won’t bombard you with emails afterwards!)
What currency do you charge in?
I’m based in the European Union so I charge in euros. Even if you’re in the USA or Canada I’ll bill you in euro, simply because I don’t want to be constantly monitoring exchange rates and taking responsibility for that.
I have the prices of my packages available on my service pages, a quick Google search will tell you what the price will be in your currency.
Do you service clients worldwide?
Yep – I have clients all over the world.
What’s your typical turnaround time?
It depends on the project and what my schedule looks like when you book. It would be the type of thing I’d let you know after having a discovery call.
For my retainer clients it’s usually 10-14 days for 1-2 blog posts each month.
