Some charge by word, some by page, some by hour and some by project. Most that I have seen, including me, have different rates for different services. Your best bet is to find someone whose style you like and contact them to inquire about their rates, experience, and skill set just as your clients inquire about the services that you provide.
The rate on how much a copywriter charges, depends on the length of the work. The best way is to go over websites that provides a list of applicants. You will see how much are they charging and their qualifications too.
I told you one of my client is a copywriter - they charge £500 per day, or £62.50 per hour. At this time That’s person working for IT business to business type stuff which it seems there’s a huge market for, not sure about other areas.
I have had positive experience with the proof reading and copy-writing services. From my experiences they either charge per hour or on a character basis, or if it’s for ghost writing services. I recommend using a professional to do the job, you’ll clearly see a difference to what you write and you’ll never look back either.
Sorry but I lost their email and their notification on sitepoint seems to have disappreared. I dorgot their username so I cannot search or them.
Is there anywhay I can get sitepoint to resurrect the notifictaion that the forum sent to me.
@Clarkjackson ; That amount is abyssmal. I wouldn’t even bother opening my Office program for that amount or answering an inquiry that suggested such low pay. At that price, you hiring copy/paste typists. I’d really like to see a sample of what you call “quality”.
And by the way… no professional writer in their right mind will do “sample” work. If you want to find a good writer, find one that has a portfolio of sold work. Those who want “samples” are generally looking for someithing (the sample) for nothing (of course $3.00 for 500 words is already there).
If you want to see what GOOD writers charge, do a Google search and compare their sites, their portfolios, and their quality.
