How much do you charge for your marketing strategy consultation?
We charge $2,000 for a full day of strategic marketing planning with your team. This is a collaborative meeting with you and your team designed to generate ideas and plans to ensure the success of your business through both online and offline marketing efforts. We can split the session into two days to more easily accommodate busy schedules. If necessary, we can also make payment arrangements but please note that the balance must be paid in full prior to the actual meeting.

Please note: We do NOT require this consulting session with our social media strategy clients as marketing consultation is already included as part of the services. Please contact us for a quote if you are interested in these services.

Do you only do one-time projects or can we hire you to do work on retainer?
We have the capability to work on either one-time projects or we can work with you on an ongoing basis for long-term projects. Our services can easily be adapted to your specific marketing needs and that can be determined in our marketing strategy session.

Why don’t you provide a free consultation like other copywriters?
Because we’re simply not like most copywriters that you’ll find out there. When we first started Online Copy Guru, we did conduct free 30-minute consultations. After a few years, we’ve found that they really didn’t benefit the client as it just wasn’t enough to write a piece of copy that truly represented what they were trying to achieve. If our clients didn’t have a complete understanding of their audience or how to use that specific piece of copy successfully, our services weren’t going to generate positive results.

We care about the success of our clients and by performing a comprehensive marketing consultation, we can learn everything we need to know about their business and target audience. This provides you with a strategic plan to enhance your overall marketing efforts and make every campaign successful.

If we hire you for a consultation, do we have to use you for copywriting services?
No. Although we prefer to develop long-term relationships with all of our clients, you are not obligated to hire us for our copywriting services. After we meet for our marketing strategy consultation session, you will have a blueprint for how your marketing campaigns should look. You can either create those campaigns in-house, outsource them, or hire us to do them for you.

How do I contact you if I need copywriting services? When are you available?
We are available Monday thru Friday from 9 am to 5 pm, CST. The best way to reach us is by email, or by filling out a contact form. We always respond to requests within 1 business day.

What qualifications does your staff have as copywriters?
Our staff has been writing corporate communications for over 6 years as both employees of major businesses and as self-employed freelance copywriters. In those 6 years, we have been responsible for writing everything from company procedures to sales letters to website content.

We are graduates of numerous direct response copywriting courses taken through American Writers and Artists Inc. (AWAI). Through taking these courses, our founder, Monique Poché, is now a Dan Kennedy Certified Copywriter for Info-Marketers*. We also make it a point to continue studying the world of direct response copywriting by reading books, taking related marketing courses, and keeping up with industry trends and news.

*The Dan Kennedy Copywriter for Info-Marketers Certification is awarded to professional copywriters who have successfully completed a course of study of preparation for such copywriting.

What can I expect from working with you?
Working with us you will discover our professionalism, attention to detail, and our ability to meet deadlines. We are 100% committed to helping our clients grow their businesses.

What do you charge for your direct response consulting and copywriting services?
Since no two projects are alike, we don’t price your projects until we discover exactly what your needs are.

Our quotes are a set flat fee, not an hourly rate. This avoids any last minute surprises. Please contact us for a consultation.

What are your terms for copywriting projects?
A 50% deposit is required once a fee agreement is signed by our clients. The balance is due once the copy is completed. Once you’ve done business with us, we require payment in full when the first draft of copy is submitted to you. We also include two revisions free of charge within the first 30 days after delivery of the copy.

If we perform ongoing consulting or social media strategy services for your business, our fee is due the first of every month.

What do your copywriting fees include?
Our fees include the cost to write the content for your project and two free revisions of the original scope of the project within 30 days of your receipt of the original copy.

For our consulting and social media strategy clients, our fees include ongoing access to our services during normal business hours, including meetings, phone conferences, and on-site training, if applicable. The specific terms will be agreed upon prior to the start of work.

What kind of turnaround time can I expect for copywriting projects?
Once we have all the information necessary, we usually require 1-2 weeks to complete the project. This time frame may vary depending on the extent of your individual project.

Do you have any specialties?
Yes, although our services are designed to benefit most companies whether they need online or offline marketing assistance, our expertise is in website content, sales funnel development, sales letters, landing pages, and website reviews. We specialize in direct response consulting and copywriting for the information marketing, finance, and self help industries.

You’re in Colorado, I’m in California. Can you still help me?
Yes! Our copywriting and marketing strategy services are specifically tailored to help you whether you are a few blocks or a few states away. We are able to discuss your needs via phone, Skype, Google Hangouts or in person if you are in the Denver Metro area.
