Illustrations/Pictures/Images not included Content and Font Suggested Format included Various website hosts allow different sets of fonts and formatting. For that reason, the suggested formats I provide may not be part of the font/format sets that can be placed on your website pages. Your website host will likely have fonts that are similar to fonts I have provided in my copy. You may also provide me with a list of fonts and sizes that your website host does include and I can work within those boundaries. If you do not know, you may ask your web designer/programmer to email me and I will work with them to provide copy that is in sync with your website host. Web designer/programmer response times may add more time to the project. Copy/Content emailed to you as an attachment. Attachments will be in Microsoft Word and as a PDF. PDF's, when emailed, hold their original fonts and layout. Microsoft Word attachments may look different upon receipt depending on whether your computer has the same version and fonts.

One edit provided/included after first draft copy. Additional discussion with you occurs after this draft in order to write the final copy. One edit provided/included for final copy.

If no response, or no extension request after the first draft, project is killed and appropriate kill fees are to be paid to me within 30 days. If final draft is provided to you and no response or extension request is received within 30 days, then entire project fee is due and to paid to me within 30 days.

Special Reports written for sale as products instead of as incentives/bonuses, may be considered and co-written or collaborated on as a joint project. Negotiation required.
Copywriting & Research Project Incentive Discount for New Clients
As an incentive to encourage new business when schedule allows, I am offering a 30% discount on fees for the first three projects requested and confirmed within a three month time frame.
Project Fee Payments & Kill Fees
Projects up to or at $600.00 require half of the fee payable up front and the remaining half payable within 30 days of the final copy. Project kill fee, once work is started, is the half fee paid up front. If project is killed after receipt of final copy draft, the full fee is payable. Projects over $600.00 require 30% of the fee payable up front, an additional 30% payable upon submitting first draft, and final 40% payable upon client receipt of the final copy. Project kill fee, once work is started, is 30% of total project fee. Project kill fee, after first draft is submitted is 60% of total project fee. Entire fee is due if project is killed after submitting final copy even without edit.

You may pay by check via mail or choose to receive an email invoice so you can pay by credit or debit card via secured PayPal. Checks should be made payable to "Inner Circle Resources". When emailed Invoice is paid, it will show on your account as "Inner Circle."
Copy Project Time Frames
Time Frames for first drafts, edits, and final copy will be discussed and agreed upon in writing prior to confirmation of any project requests. Some copy projects may require research that provides an unknown factor. In these situations, time frame estimates will be discussed and agreed upon in writing before starting the copy work.
Rush Job Requests
I seldom accept rush jobs. It effects the quality of the copy as well as the sales or sales leverage impact. If a rush job is accepted, an additional fee will be negotiated.
Rights to Use as Website Samples
Copy or content may be used as samples on any of my websites with names and URL's changed so as not to designate client identification unless client expressly requests or allows the additional exposure on my websites.
Copy Review Responsibilities
I thoroughly review copy before submitting it. On a rare occasion, some copy error may be present. The client is expected to make a final review of copy to prevent these rare occurences.
Legal Review of Copy
I am a copywriter and not an attorney. Clients are expected to review copy for legal purposes, to make certain no violations of law will occur when copy is published. Certain product or service niches like the health industry have special legal requirements on health claims. The client is ultimately accepts the responsibility for legal review of any copy submitted for web or print.
Marketing or Advertising Agencies
I accept work with agencies for copywriting projects. Please email me for any project request inquiries.
