If you’ve reached this point then you might be thinking “so what’s this going to cost me?” And it’s a fair enough question so I’ve listed below rates for the work I most commonly do.
Now, before we get to the hard numbers, here’s what you need to know, so you know what’s included:
- taking a project brief
- identifying your target audience
- understanding your business objectives
- undertaking research, including keywords
- optimising the copy for SEO (search engine optimisation)
- two sets of revisions
- editing and proofreading
- two social media intros with suggested hashtags (for blogs/articles)
BLOGS OR ARTICLES
Sometimes the subject of an article or blog will determine the length of the post. However as a general rule, for blog posts of up to 600 words, I charge $240 per blog or a package of ten for $2,100. For longer form articles of up to 1,200 words, I charge $500.
If you’d like to ‘try before you buy’ and commission a single blog – that’s fine, just call me. If you’re on a bit of a tight budget and would like to write them yourself and only need a quick proofread and edit them – that’s cool too. To help you get started I created this free resource Supercharge your Business Blog – help yourself, it’s free.
For larger projects like writing content for a new website, I work on a fee per project basis because it depends on how many pages are required, word length, research required and so forth. However as a guide, for a 10-page website, you’d be looking at around $2,500.
I can provide you with social media posts for your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, to capture your key messages and ensure they align with your business goals. Costs vary depending on the number of posts so it could be anywhere from $500-$1,500 per month.
I charge $350 for a quarterly e-newsletter (minimum of four) which takes care of your news and your customers for a year.
Generally, I charge $150 for a standard business plan including two lots of revisions (financial projections etc to be provided by the client).
OTHER BUSINESS WRITING REQUIREMENTS
If you have something in mind which is not listed, no worries at all – call me and let’s have a chat.
The rates listed above are exclusive of GST.
So that’s the basic lo-down but I’m always happy to chat about your business needs and to kick around some ideas.
Before I start work I’ll ask you to accept my CTC – Project Terms and Conditions and then we’re good to go. If for any reason, the project and/or scope significantly changes, I’ll talk to you before continuing.
So get in touch and let’s do this!
