"Copywriter Rates, Getting The Facts Beforehand"Written by Niall Cinneide
Have you ever had experience of hiring a freelance copy writer only to find that project takes longer than expected, or that fees they offered are ‘flexible’ in wrong way for you to benefit. There is no doubt that copywriter rates differ greatly from one to another. There is very little in way of a standard rate especially when you are dealing with clients through Internet. To ensure you don’t get taken for a ride, you need to get your copywriter rates set and keep them that way.
No matter if you are just beginning a project or are half way through, benefits of having a set contract are enormous. Not only can you save yourself quite costly fees, but you can also count on when project will be complete, how much you will pay, and, in end, what to expect. If you are looking for basic rates, then ask for them. Find copy writer you want to do work, give them some basic idea of what project entails and then ask for a quote. Now, before you get your email going, remember to include word “flat” as in flat rate. By saying, “Here is my project, what is flat rate you will charge?” you are eliminating guess work.
"Looking For Good Copywriter Books?"Written by Niall Cinneide
If you are looking for copywriter books, you’ll want to devote some time to reading. In fact, if you plan to look online for your copy writer resources, you might as well just devote your life to reading! There are so many books that are available for you to purchase. Sure, there are standard things that each book will probably include. And, like vast amount of diets out there, copywriter books are just as versatile and, unfortunately, misleading. Now, before you get frustrated with that, let’s clarify that there are many thousands of different copywriter books available. Some do have very good points, business tips, and offer a great amount of help. But, let’s get realistic when it comes to outrageous claims of making millions as a freelance copy writer just from reading a book. Like those fad diets, there are those that like to fluff quality of their material incredibly. The key is to find good stuff, pull it out, and use it wisely.
Let’s think about that analogy about diets claiming fantastic results again. We all know that tried and true diet of eating healthy, well balanced meals and getting in a good amount of exercise is going to result in weight loss, right? The same goes for these books claiming fantastic results. If you want a freelance career as a copy writer that makes you millions, you’ll need to work for it, from beginning.
