Misconceptions about Freelance Writers
The word “free” in freelance does not mean services rendered are at no cost.
You would never ask your plumber to fix your broken pipe for free, just to see if they are a good fit for your plumbing needs.
Some companies ask for freelance writers to do spec writing to see if they are a good fit for what they need.
As a freelance writer my time is valuable as your, plumber, hairdresser, and mechanic’s time.
Asking for samples of my writing is normal. My portfolio is on this website.
Trying out a Freelance Writer
If you are not sure if a writer is a fit for your needs then try small projects with them.
Projects I write for free are causes of which I believe in or for my non-profit. Other projects require a 50% up-front non-refundable fee, after we mutually decide if we are a good fit to work together.
Good copy takes time to research and understanding the product to be sold.
Anyone can write general information on a product.
A copywriter finds the hidden gems and knows the best words for marketing.
Working with a freelancer means you don’t have to pay job benefits but, because you don’t we have to provide our own. We get paid by the job, not the hour. Working remotely gives us freedom of resources and time to either work early in the morning or late in the evening. This flexibility means we can produce better quality of writing for hours that work better for our creativity.
My rates will depend on the complexity of the writing project you require.
