Copywriting

hi there,

i have just been offered a freelance position as a copywriter for an ad company... the thing is that i do not really know how much i should bill the company.

how does it work? what's the normal fee to write some adverts or articles? do you charge by word, by page?
can anyone give me an idea??

thanks

daniel

If you're looking for a blanket answer, you may have difficulty. Such rates vary greatly by location, industry and experience level.

I think with copyrighting it's common to charge by the word rather than by the hour. At the end of the day, it's up to you. The person that offered you the work... did they not ask you your charges in advance?

Most often it's per page or per word, but if you're doing a lot of work just bid it out at a flat, all inclusive price.

i had a meeting with this person this week. thats why i wanted to know a little about what prices people charge in the freelance market.
i guessed freelancers might charge by word or page but wasnt sure... a friend of mine works as a freelance translator and she charges 20 cents per word...

thank you guys!

20 cents per word is cool....
We usually charge $10-$20 per page.. for Technical writing.
And we take services from Top journalists and technical writers in the industry.

I recently paid $25 per 500/800 word technical articles and they are good.
