Getting work after your copywriting course is one thing. But tying up the payment details can be complicated.
Every company is very different. But it’s best to send in a fee proposal and outline the work the company. This sets it out clearly for everyone, so there can be no mistake.
Some successful online copywriting course students find that clients ask them advice, which wasn’t included in the original agreement.
It’s reasonable to advise about the job, but some clients take liberties and treat you as an unpaid consultant!
It’s best to type up advice as a brief and then send it over to the client. Make sure you add these hours to your invoice: tot up how much time you’ve spent doing the things they require and then charge them for it.
When you’re running a business you have to make sure you’re paid properly, but try to do it nicely. Be clear at the beginning what you’re doing and what you’re charging. No-one can then quibble.
