Frequently Asked Questions

“What kinds of assignments do you handle?”

I specialize in long-form copy and video transcripts, but I can handle the full array
of copywriting needs in personal development / self-help.

“How much do you charge for projects?”
For any copywriting assignments, just let me know your needs or what you have in mind, and I’ll quote you a price. The section below called “Services & Investments” gives typical prices for a variety of different writing projects.
“How long will it take you to write my copy?”

I like to have 2 to 4 weeks to complete the initial draft of a copywriting assignment. That gives us time to discuss the project, me to do the necessary research, and then revise, edit, and polish the work until we’re both happy with every word.

I realize there may be circumstances when you can’t wait that long. So, if the job’s a rush, please indicate the date by which you must receive your copy. Due to prior commitments, I may not be able to take on an urgent assignment. However, if I take the job, my signing the contract guarantees that you’ll have your copy on your desk by the deadline.

“What happens if we want you to revise the copy?”

Just tell me what you want me to revise with some guidelines on what needs to be cut, or added, and I’ll make the changes. There’s no additional charge for rewriting. Revisions are included in the flat fee we’ll have agreed to in the contract for the assignment, provided that they’re specified within 30 days of your receipt of the copy and are not based on a change in the assignment made after the copy has been submitted.

If you’re not 100% satisfied, I’ll revise the copy according to your specific guidelines at my expense until you are.

"What’s with the PhD?"

I am an ex-professor. I studied the sciences as an undergraduate, then realized that I was more interested in the foundations of science. I turned to philosophy, as it was a subject where I could explore this passion. My time in academia brought me into contact with a lot of different types of people in different fields. My job included explaining often difficult and obscure concepts and ensuring that students understood them. Sadly, there are very few full-time teaching jobs in philosophy in universities, and I finally decided that part-time teaching was not for me even
though I had written and published a number of articles and reviews in refereed academic journals. Besides, I am very much an interdisciplinarian and not a microspecialist. A lifelong learner must be an interdisciplinarian.

I went on to study health education practices, learning about systems and processes, and have since realized that these could be applied to self-help programs and personal development generally. My writing abilities plus my increasing interest in such areas finally led me to the AWAI fold and to copywriting as the profession where I can best serve.

"Given that you don’t have a business background, are you sure you can help my business?"
Yes, absolutely. I used to tell students, “We are problem solvers. It’s who we are, it’s what we do. Some of us are very good at it.” A problem is anything that drives you to take action. You want the problem solved effectively and efficiently. Your customers come to you to help them solve problems. That’s the common denominator here. As a philosophy instructor I solved problems for my students, helping them improve their thinking skills. As a copywriter I’ll solve problems for your business by helping you solve your customers’ problems — driving revenue your way. Different arenas, true, but when you hire me, our goals will be the
same: using my writing to help you solve your customers’ problems.
