With Melissa's help, you can create engaging blogs, articles and copy your audience will love

I managed Melissa as part of a team of freelancers working on a company-wide project editing copy for a new Customer Relationship Management system. Right from day one, she was a pleasure to work with.

The copy she produced was to a very high standard and she was extremely efficient, completing tasks well before the set deadlines which made her a real asset to the team. Her attitude was always great and she was friendly, professional and enthusiastic throughout the entire project. Thanks Mel!

Where can I see examples of your writing?

For examples of my writing, please check out my published work.

Why do you show 'starting at' prices rather than exact costs?

Each of my clients is different and has unique needs. As such, all my copywriting quotes are bespoke and take into account factors such as the length and complexity of the project, deadlines and levels of research involved. If you'd like to discuss a quote for your project, please get in touch.

Your copywriting services are out of my price range. Do you offer other services at a lower price point?

My services are priced based on my level of expertise and value I can add. If my pricing is out of your budget, it might be possible to reduce the scope, recommend another freelancer or you might be interested in my press release template.

What if we have a really big project that's too much for one person?

The great thing about working in the for-purpose sector is that there are several brilliant other freelancers working in the same space and I have a great network. We see each other as friends and collaborators rather than competition. This means if I don't have capacity, I can recommend someone else or work with another suitable freelancer (or several) to get the project done.

What's your day rate?

I don't charge using a day rate or by word count. Instead, I offer package pricing and all my quotes are bespoke depending on the type, length, timings and complexity of your project. We'll agree the price before I start work and, if my quoted fee is out of your range, we can reduce the scope of work before getting started. Having a clear fee for the agreed deliverables means you know exactly where you stand and there are no nasty budget surprises if something takes longer than we anticipated.

Are you insured?

Yes. I have professional indemnity insurance with Beazley.

Do you charge VAT?

No. I do not currently charge VAT on my services.

Ready to chat?
