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.

So without further ado, here is my rate card:


Blogging services

Monthly blog retainer rate (1 new article weekly): £300 per calendar month

Additional single post/article, 500 words: £65

One-off article: £100 per 500 words + £75 for each additional block of 500 words


Specialised articles

Requiring client interviews or similar: (from) £100



From £750


Website text

Billed on a per project basis


Time-based billing

Projects like sales emails, rebranding, mission statements and taglines will all be quoted on a time basis, using the following as a guide.

Hourly rate: £75

Day rate: £500



Short notice surcharge (for deadlines less than 48 hours):  +20%

On site visits are charged at day rate (or part thereof) + travel expenses.


If these rates still sound too much for your budget please do drop me a line. Even if we cannot reach an amicable agreement, I can put you in touch with some other excellent writers who may be able to assist.
