Most people who contact me have never used a copywriter before and don’t know what to expect, so if that’s how you feel, don’t worry — you’re in good company. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions I get…
Q. What exactly does a copywriter do?
Q. How are you different to other copywriters?
Q. Do you have a specialty?
Direct marketing and websites are my specialty — this is what is called ‘long copy’ (lots of words). Many copywriters don’t like or don’t specialise in long copy, because to be honest, it’s hard. I enjoy it because I’m not just a wordsmith, I’m a problem-solver.
I also specialise in dejargonizing — that’s my made-up word but you know exactly what it means — getting rid of jargon, government-speak, corporate-speak etc. I write for the man in the street.
Q. What types of writing DON’T you do?
Q. What other services do you offer?
Q. Do you do graphic design or actually build the website?
Q. How much does a copywriter cost?
Q. So why shouldn’t I use Elance?
Q. How do I know if Copy with Cream is right for me?
Q. Can you give me a quote before we begin?
Q. What if I don’t have much of a budget? Can you still help me?
Q. When I contact you, what do I need to tell you?
Q. Can I book a job in ahead of time?
Q. When do I pay?
Q. What if I only have some really basic stuff and it’s rubbish?
