Last week, Pocket Copy officially opened its virtual doors to developers of iOS, Android and Windows Mobile apps as well as companies in the mobile market looking for professional copywriting services for their products.

This week, we’re completing our first commissions and engaging in exciting discussions with prospective clients. Not a bad start!

We have noticed, however, that those we’ve spoken to expect our service to cost the earth.

Let us tell you now - it really doesn’t.

We’ve discussed publishing a basic rate card on the site but, due to the nature of this type of copywriting, it’s hard to nail down an all-encompassing solution. A per-word rate may work out brilliantly for one client but produce a terrifying fee for another, for example.

That’s why we work on a per-project basis and build a rate specific to the work performed. Clients do, of course, receive a free quote before any work is started, so there won’t be any nasty surprises when our invoice arrives.

As a rule we approach commissions by working out the time we believe it will take us to complete a project and produce a fee based on our set hourly rate. We keep the client involved in this process too and only lock in the fee when both parties agree on the price.

Once the work is completed, the client has the option to request rewrites until they, not us, are happy with the content delivered. Rewrites are completely free and we’ll keep on writing them until the client is 100% content.

So that’s:

- A free quote

- Flexible rates for each project

- Unlimited rewrites

We don’t think we could offer a much fairer deal but, if you think there’s something we could change, by all means get in touch and let us know.

We look forward to working with you.

Best wishes,

The Pocket Copy Team
