The benefits of blogging are enormous. E- NOR- MUSSS.
From helping you rank on Google, to impressing your dream client, to helping your audience understand something right up to showing the depth of your expertise, blogging does it all.
It’s unlike any other small business promotion tool.
Unlike the content on your Insta feed or your LinkedIn posts, you own your blogging content. You control it, it can’t be deleted without your consent, it can’t be hacked, and it’s evergreen.
Years after you’ve posted an SEO blog it’ll keep driving traffic to your website, all while promoting your biz.
Can you tell how much I love blogging?
There are three ways this can go, and they all start with an indepth, 2 hour strategy call.
Together you and I will work out exactly what each blog will be about for the next 6, 9, or 12 months. I’ll do loads of SEO and competitor research and then create a full Blogging Strategy Plan for you.
Then, you can write your blogs yourself, with my strategy all mapped out to help you keep on track.
Or, I can write the blogs for you on a monthly retainer basis. I’ll send you a fresh and shiny SEO blog (or two) every month.
Alternatively, I can write a big bundle of 6, 9, or 12 blogs in one go, ready for you to schedule on your website.
However you want to do it is good for me.
If you find yourself constantly planning Insta content from scratch or scrabbling around for a LinkedIn post, I can promise there’s a much better way.
If you start with a kick- ass blogging strategy, you’ll get evergreen, impressive SEO content which can be super easily repurposed into social media content.
Well written blogs pretty much make every part of promoting and marketing your small business super easy.
Writing for bold, creative, sustainable businesses is one of the best parts of my job. And, when they’re happy with what I’ve written for them it’s even better. Check out their kind reviews and click on their name to go see their website.
Choosing my favourite writing format is like choosing between a vegan doughnut and a vegan brownie… it’s impossible.
If you pushed me, however, I’d have to say blogging was my top three favourite things to write. I absolutely love them.
I get to step into your business, try on your tone of voice, and do in depth reseach on super interesting topics to an ultra nerdy level. Dreamy.
Not only is the writing and research fun, but I really enjoy knowing I’ve made a positive impact on someone’s business. Maybe it’s the oldest child in me, but being helpful is like addiction.
From literally taking a job you hate off your to do list, to creating a straightforward strategy for you to follow, right up to getting you more traffic on your website, there’s a lot for me to get a kick out of.
You’ll already know how much I love Bristol. It’s my home city, its where I bought my first home, its where I started my business. And, I’m extra lucky that Bristol is full of super inspiring small businesses who do their thing, their way. I mean, have you heard of Gloucester Road?!
But, even with all that Bristol goodness in mind, I love writing for small business owners in different parts of the UK.
This bit’s kinda tricky, simply because every project is bespoke to my clients’ needs. But, I completely appreciate you want to get an idea of how much copywriting and content writing costs so you can decide if it’s for you.
To quote for your project, I work out how many days I’ll need to research, write, edit, proofread, and revise your copy. Then, I multiply those days by £250. That’s my day rate for small business owners. Even though the UK average copywriter day rate is £390, I’m mindful of bold, sustainable small business owners’ expenses, and I want to help as many people as possible.
So you can see if your budget and my services align, I’ve put together a blog writing price guide. I’ll be able to give you a precise quote once we’ve had a chat in the discovery call.

I love that you want all the answers before you take the next steps. Hopefully you’ll find what you’re looking for below, but I’m only an email away if you have more questions.
Nope! I’m not able to do this for a couple of reasons.
First of all, for me to track your which keywords are ranking for your website, I’d need to be added to your Google analytics, and I’d need access to the back end of your website. This is not the kind of client data I want to be responsible for, which is why I send your freshly written copy to you in a Word document, and you can upload it, track it, and monitor it yourself. You can absolutely share the results with me!
Secondly, super well written SEO website copy, product descriptions, and blogs are only one part of the SEO puzzle. Yes, they’re a key puzzle piece, but if you don’t also have a good website, good technical SEO, and good backlinks, you may struggle to rank for the keywords you want to rank for. So, as a copywriter, I can’t be solely responsible for the SEO on your website.
Yes! I start writing when I have received 50% of the agreed fee, but how you pay is up to you.
I’m happy to take four payments of 25%, or three payments of 33%, or two payments of 50%, which is typical. Let’s discuss this in your discovery call.
Simply, no. This is not something I’m good at or enjoy doing, so I can’t offer this as a service. Everything I write for you will be ready to simply copy and paste, but it’s best for you to keep the access to your website to yourself, or your trusted VA/ website developer.
I price very, very carefully to suit the budgets of lovely small business owners, and so I can keep my business alive. So, the short answer is no, prices are not negotiable. Especially as the UK average rate for copywriters is £390 per day.
What is negotiable is the scope of the project, i.e., doing one page of website copy at a time, or one blog every other month. I am more than happy to work with you on a payment plan, or to offer another way to help you, like a power hour. Simply get in touch and we can find a way which works for both of us.
Sorry, I’m not your gal. I can recommend some talented designers and photographers for you, but I’m very happy sticking to words.
On a fully irregular basis, whenever I’ve got something super interesting, I’ll send it your way.
