How much does good copywriting cost? My rate card

Let’s not beat around the bush – you want to know how much it will cost to have me work on your copywriting project. And that’s fair enough, because it may be that you look at the rate card below, wince, and resume your search for a good technical copywriter elsewhere.

But if you do think the numbers below are expensive, take a second to consider how expensive cheap copy is in the long run.

The figures below are a guideline. For every project I provide a fixed price quote so you and I both know how much the job will cost upfront. The rate card below will help you understand how I build a quote:
