my copywriting process

Emma McMillan copywriter
 
 

THE INITIAL STAGES

Please complete the contact form on my website, telling me about your copywriting needs. I’ll then be in touch via phone or email (your preferred method) and provide you with my briefing form. This is your chance to Include as much detail as you can to help me learn more about your business, project, customers, tone of voice, budget and ideal timeline. I’ll then prepare a detailed project proposal for you, which will include your quote, a suggested timeline and my terms and conditions.

BOOKING IN YOUR PROJECT

Sign the proposal and I’ll send through a commencement invoice (50% for jobs over $500, 100% for jobs under $500) Please pay this invoice promptly to get your project booked in and underway.

RESEARCH AND WRITING

I’ll delve into the research stage, finding out everything I need to know about your business, your industry, the topic and your competitors. I’ll then write and send you the first draft of your copy for feedback. To make sure everything sounds just right, I offer two rounds of revisions (usually only one is needed) and a final proofread.

FINALISING THE PROJECT

I’ll send you the final version of your copy, along with a project sign-off form. At this point, I may also ask you for a testimonial. I'll send an invoice for the final 50% at project sign-off, or two weeks after I deliver your first draft, whichever happens first. Once you’ve paid the balance, the copy and copyright is all yours. Happy days!
