Frequently Asked Questions
Copywriting is foreign to many people. To help you gain a basic understanding of copywriting and how our service works, here are the most common questions asked by new clients.
1Why is there a charge for phone consultations?
Due to the fact The CopyWriting Genie receives so many people wanting a phone consultation; we require an appointment and charge a fee of $50. The company operates entirely online, and this means our best method of communication is electronic. However, the high quality of writing we provide has resulted in more clients and popularity, so we do offer limited phone consults.
2Do you handle SEO (search engine optimization)?
Yes, we do. Upon request. If your content isn’t optimized for your keywords, you’ll be invisible to search engines. All the copy you receive from The CopyWriting Genie is: • Relevant • Valuable • Shareable • Engaging The general recommendation for success with SEO is 1 to 2% keyword density, which is what we use for your content. This lets search engines know what your site is about without raising red flags for overuse of keywords
3Can’t I write my own copy, or have a friend do it?
Copywriting is very specialized. And not just anyone can choose the right words to promote your company. Just because someone has an English degree doesn’t mean they have the experience to create inspiring content. Unless you have been working in the business and have the necessary experience in writing compelling text in the style necessary, you’ll want to bring a copywriter on board

5How much will my project cost?
Each client’s project is evaluated on an individual basis. We look at the following areas to calculate the quote: • Format • Word count • Research • Difficulty • Revisions Each project is unique and will require a different approach, but we will provide you with a detailed quote that explains each milestone and price.

6Will my content be exactly what I had in mind?
The reason we take the time to understand your project thoroughly ahead of time is to ensure that the copy you receive is as close to what you imagined as possible. Take a minute to look through our portfolio and to get a better idea of our work and whether it will suit your needs.
7Can you provide content on a topic that you’re unfamiliar with?
A large part of copywriting is research. Experienced copywriters know how to find the necessary information about your market, including: • Your competition • How others sell in your niche • Who your clients are In fact, you could say that copywriting is actually the simplest part of the job. In order to provide you with top quality copy, we will discuss anything we don’t understand with you to clarify.
8Are there any topics you won’t take on?
While The CopyWriting Genie is comfortable with creating content on nearly any topic, there are a few areas we prefer not to work on. These include: • Adult or porn topics • Extreme groups • Spam projects We are more than happy to give you the best content we can produce, but when the topic is outside our comfort zone, it’s best to find a different writer.
9What are your payment policies?
There are two ways to set up payment with us. Long-term or ongoing projects: We can set up a monthly content marketing retainer, which will be paid up front each month. This entitles you to a certain amount of copywriting each month. One-time projects: For this type of work, we require a deposit of 50% of the project cost up front. This is non-refundable. Upon delivery of the final copy, you’ll be required to pay the remaining 50%. All fees are in US dollars, and we require a $500 minimum order. You can pay via credit card through PayPal.
10Do you also handle graphic design?
We are a copywriting company and prefer to focus our time and energy on creating great copy. However, we can refer you to trusted graphic designers in our network, if desired.
11Is there a rush option available?
When you desperately need content in a hurry, we can provide faster service for a fee. Check our Rush Jobs page to learn more about this option. While we do offer rush jobs, it’s not recommended. The faster the work is done, the more likely it is that there will be errors.
