5 reasons to hire a copywriter to support you with your new website

I can’t lie, creating copy will be the most time consuming part of your website build. You want it to be just right, and when there’s so much riding on the way you present your brand, it can feel overwhelming to know where to start.

If you have the budget, I more than recommend hiring a copywriter to make the job run smoothly. Here are the reasons why:

  1. To save time

Working with a skilled, organised copywriter will save you hours you would otherwise spend researching, drafting, redrafting, second guessing and making all those tiny changes that’ll bug you in your own work. You can agree to a deadline and stick to your web design milestones. When you outsource copywriting, you get to focus on what you do best: supporting your clients and building your brand.

  1. Because she’s the pro

Copywriting feels like something we ought to be able to do for ourselves – after all, you know your business inside out, you’re articulate and you’ve always done it in the past. But copywriting is a skill and a copywriter has spent years honing her craft. She’ll distil your most complex ideas into concise language to communicate your message in the best possible way to drive conversion and sales. Your copywriter will weave compelling narratives that captivate and engage your audience, delivering ​​polished and error-free content, elevating your brand image and instilling trust and credibility in your audience.

  1. To give you a competitive edge

If you’re feeling icky about writing about how awesome you are, a copywriter is a brilliant solution. She won’t second guess what she’s writing and she’ll have all the know-how to set you apart from competitors and present you as the experienced, qualified and knowledgeable pro that you are. 

  1. To boost SEO

SEO can feel like a dark art, but a copywriter works on it every day. Your copywriter understands how to optimise content for search engines, improving your website’s visibility (which ultimately saves your marketing budget).

  1. To improve your website flow

Your website designer will have a great overview of your site and the journey prospective clients will take through it. A copywriter is the icing on the cake, structuring website content to ensure a smooth and logical flow, and improving user experience.

So now I’ve convinced you, one last tip: Whatever you do, trust your copywriter. She’ll choose each word with care, so if you start editing her work, you’re back to where you started. I have the best copywriter who is ready to support you with your new website.

Your Questions Answered

Choosing the right creative partner feels like a huge step – there are so many designers out there. Below, you’ll find the answers to some of the questions I most often receive. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

For years, I worked with professionals from a range of industries, including law, investment and finance, sports clubs, hospitality and consulting. I decided to focus on supporting interior designers because I know it is a field I can add extra value to with my eye for visual spacing, balance and typography.

That said, I love to support professionals from other fields – please get in touch to find out whether we’re the right fit.

The best person to ask is my past clients – please take a look at my case studies for a thorough answer! I take a lot of care over the thoughtful experience I put together for my clients – it’s important to me that I demystify and simplify the web design process so that you can enjoy the journey.

I also believe your website should be a powerhouse, working hard for you behind the scenes while you focus on your clients and then enjoy your life behind the scenes. I am passionate about using SEO and intentional design to leverage your site and bring your ideal clients to your door.

It is important to me that my clients receive the service they need within their budget. Your proposal will vary depending on whether you need support with branding, copywriting and digital strategy, and whether you require a blog. As a rough guide, projects usually cost between £3,000 ($3,800) for a simple one page site and £10,000 ($12,000) for a full website and blog. I itemise my proposal to allow you to pick the investment that feels right for you.

You can read more about how much it costs to build a website here.

I take a 50% deposit at the start of the project, with the remainder payable prior to website launch. Alternatively, you can choose to pay in instalments, with the website launch scheduled after the final payment has been received.

My Care Packages start from £100 ($125) per month, which includes hosting, updates, backups and security checks.

If you would like extra design work, including support with adding blog posts and sourcing images, I can handle that too! You can pay monthly, quarterly or annually and schedule your design hours monthly or quarterly depending on what suits your workflow.

This really varies – if you have a clear vision for your site and your content and images ready (or plan to work with a copywriter), your website could be ready for launch within a month from when I receive the final content. I schedule projects as they come in, depending on my workload and yours, and we plan a timeline together at the outset of the project.

You absolutely can, but keep in mind that it is usually the biggest job of the website build. I have a brilliant copywriter who is on hand to support you with your copy if needed, and would be happy to put you in touch. Click here to learn more about copywriting and your website design project.

I have done a lot of branding work for previous clients, including selecting and refining a colour palette and typography and logo design. I can also support you with print design for your business cards, letterheads, invoicing and email templates, as well as social media templates.

I have a sixtypoint SEO checklist that I work through for every client to ensure we give your website the very best possible chance of ranking for SEO. If you wish to get more support on SEO, I have an expert SEO consultant who provide you with a tailor made strategy and content plan for the first three months of your business.
