Copywriting Considerations

You should also take into consideration SEO, your audience, market rates, competitor rates, your marketing strategy and your content strategy. Ensure that you are getting the best rates for the market, and consider conducting a rate survey to compare your competing services.

Types of Services I Offer

With an eye towards crafting a unique message, I offer a range of copywriting services that include blog posts, website content, email copywriting, social media copy, ads and sales copy, and product descriptions.


My expertise in each of these areas has been honed over an extensive period of time, and I am able to create captivating content tailored to the needs and preferences of each individual client. I am comfortable working within a variety of budgets, and I strive to offer competitive rates that are in line with the industry standards.

Copywriting Rates

Per Page Rates

When it comes to copywriting rates, per-page rates are a popular choice for many clients. This means that you pay for the number of pages written, rather than the amount of words. This kind of rate is beneficial because it allows you to have some control over the length of the final product. It also allows you to allocate more words to topics that are more important to you.

Standard or Complex Pages

At The Content Fountain, I offer a range of per-page rates depending on the complexity of the project. If the project requires a great deal of research, fact-checking and editing, then I will charge more. On the other hand, if the project is simpler and easier to put together, then the rate will be lower.

Per Word Rates

With this pricing model, the client pays a fixed rate for each word of copy written. This rate is typically based on the complexity of the project, the amount of research required, and the amount of time required to complete the task.

Per word rates offer flexibility to tailor the text to fit your needs. This can be ideal for clients who have a specific word count in mind, or who are looking to break up the project into multiple phases. Additionally, clients can use per-word rates to get a better understanding of how much the entire project will cost.

The per word rate can also vary depending on the type of content.

Payment Terms

Payment Schedule

Depending on the project size and complexity, the payment schedule will vary. Typically, larger projects will require an initial deposit to secure the project, followed by milestone payments as progress is made. Smaller projects may require only a single payment at the completion of the project.

Payment Flexibility

I am flexible, so if you have a different payment schedule in mind, we can discuss that too. Working together, we can come up with a payment arrangement that suits both parties and allows the project to move forward without disruption or delay.

Payment Methods

When it comes to payment methods, I offer convenient options to suit each individual client’s needs. My accepted payment methods include bank transfers, Stripe payments, and credit card payments. All payments will be processed securely and promptly, so clients can be sure that their information will remain safe and secure.

Splitting Payments

Furthermore, I also offer the option of splitting payments into multiple installments, making it easier to manage the client’s budget. In addition, I also provide a detailed invoice with all the necessary information regarding the payment, including a breakdown of the services rendered and the total cost. This ensures that clients know exactly what they are paying for.

Late Payment Fees

Late payments can sometimes be unavoidable, however, if they occur I will charge a late fee. The late fee is calculated as a percentage of the total amount owed, and the percentage rate is determined by the length of the delay.

Late Payment Rates

For delays up to 30 days, the late fee is 5%, for delays of more than 30 days the late fee is 10%. This late fee is applied to the total amount of the invoice, and must be paid in full before further work can commence.

Negotiation and Bargaining Options

If you’re looking to save on costs without sacrificing quality, discounts are a great way to do just that. At The Content Fountain, I favour long-term partnerships and can offer discounts on contracts. You will also get a standard 10% project discount if your project total exceeds $2500, and from my cost calculator, you will notice that I use a pricing scale as your order quantities increase.

Quality Assurance


Through careful editing, any errors, typos or misstatements are detected and corrected, allowing for the highest quality of content to be presented. This includes checking for grammar, spelling, punctuation, syntax, readability, formatting and other aspects that ensure the content is of the highest standard. Editing services also review the content for accuracy, ensuring the content is factual and relevant to your audience.


Proofreading is the process of reviewing the content for errors in grammar, punctuation, spelling, syntax, and readability. It is the most important part of the content creation process, as it helps ensure that content is free of any mistakes and ready for publication.


It is essential to prioritise revisions. Revisions are the final process in the copywriting process and are an essential part of creating high-quality content. It is important to understand that revisions are more than just checking for typos, they include ensuring that the content follows the client’s vision, style guide, and brand voice.

Projects Policies


Here at The Content Fountain, timely delivery is of utmost importance. To ensure this, I clearly define the timeline for each project during the negotiation process. I understand that sometimes circumstances can arise that cause a delay, but I always work hard to ensure that my clients have ample time to review the work and make any necessary adjustments. I am committed to delivering quality work on time and within the agreed upon contract terms.

Terms of Use

I take all necessary steps to ensure that each project is completed in a way that is satisfactory to the client. As such, a clearly defined set of terms between myself and the client must be established. All projects must have a detailed outline of roles and responsibilities, payment terms, deliverables, and the length of the project. It is also important that my clients are aware of and agree to the non-disclosure agreement as part of the terms of use. All clients must agree to the terms of use prior to the start of any project. This helps to ensure that both parties are on the same page, which ultimately leads to a successful outcome.

Cancellation Policies

When it comes to Cancellation Policies, it’s important to have clear expectations for both the client and myself. It’s best to have a written agreement that outlines what happens if either side decides to cancel the project before it’s finished. I understand that sometimes life can get in the way, so I am willing to be flexible within reason. Depending on the project, cancellation can involve a full or partial refund, or even the option to put the project on hold. Ultimately, it is the client’s choice, and I will do my best to ensure that the project is completed to the highest standard possible.

Communication Process

Email Availability

An important factor for a successful collaboration is clear and timely communication. When it comes to email availability, I aim to respond within 24 hours. I understand that in some cases, the urgency of a project requires a quicker response and that is why I prioritize emails with a deadline.

I want to ensure that all clients have their needs met with fast, accurate, and friendly responses. This is why I make sure to check my emails at least twice a day.

Zoom Availability

With a commitment to reliable communication as before, I am also available to meet with you via Zoom. I understand how important it is to have a clear understanding of the project, and I’m here to make that happen.
