    #14 Alex,thank you for your reply-I understand that copy writing is part of creative advertising and the storyboard which is conveyed by the voice over of your commercial,not as business blogging.It's not only informative but also inducing and persuasive,and its effect can be measured,evaluated and developed.
    Business blogging can be considered as part of PR but copy writing is the heart of any advertising strategy and is also crucial link in the innovation process, when converting generated ideas into successful product concepts.The role of the copy writer is to ensure what he is writing is consistent with the org vision created and the image he crafted in customers mind.So,his role is evaluated , rated and developed along with the org vision and image dimensions related to their market.

    #12 Mohammed, thank you for your comment, though I'm not sure I'm following your train of thought.

    The kind of blogs I write for are business blogs. Just as with copywriting, I have to take into account market insights and the customer's perception. My goal is to provide information the customer finds useful or interesting to subtly promote the product or service. It is different from ad copy because it provides more substance and a softer sell, but it is not like personal or opinion blogging, where the blogger writes strictly from his or her own perspective.
    Alexa Steele
    25/01/2017 #13 Alexa Steele
    #11 Interesting thoughts to consider, Harvey.

    Copywriting is definitely a part that fits into a whole, and I always encourage businesses to bring us in at the beginning of the project, not the end. (It's never good to hear "The graphic design leaves room for exactly this many words." )

    I'm not sure how it is for other trades, but in this business, more sophisticated customers are better. They are the ones that appreciate substantive writing, proper grammar, and a clever turn of phrase. Less sophisticated customers tend to look only at word count. That difference (plus available budget) is why some copywriters make $.01 per word while others can charge $200/hour.

    But as to your final point, you're right. I can create the most substantive, well-written, clever bit of content there ever was, if no one reads it, it won't bring you business. Therefore, to you it's worthless.
    Mohammed Sultan
    25/01/2017 #12 Mohammed Sultan
    The difference between blogging and copy writing is like the difference between selling and marketing.The first works for the interest of the seller(the blogger) and depends to a large degree on his own perception ,and the second works for the interest of the audience (the customer) and depends to large extent on market insights and the perception of the customer .To change the audience mind the blogger should change his perception first while the copy writer can't change customers mind unless he shed out the idea that already stuck in their mind and replace it,through market insights, with his new idea.Both need several manipulations and several impressions in the audience/the reader mind too.

    I believe this is a question small business asks everyday. In all trades and crafts i would think competition is always the issue. Battling for or trying to find the customer. This being said i would think, an opinion, that your craft is one that is part of whole. Being able to demonstrate to potential clients how you fit into the whole and what happens when you are not present, would be the approach.

    If you sell by the word and not the outcome then it will most likely always be about price. This maybe preaching to the choir as i am sure you have already thought through this aspect. What did Zig Ziegler say, "Sell the sizzle not the steak". I would also imagine the more sophisticated your customer the less the price will be, more work less price. The less sophisticated your customer the more they will lean on you for add on services, due to their need of the whole or being a complete service. Higher prices.

    As one of a few million in small business. Words have to turn into eyes, engagement and revenues. How can i see that connection from the words?

    @Alexa Steele A good and timely piece as I am pondering the same question. I think @Paul Walters nailed it. I might fly a little under his hourly for certain work - charitable organizations, fun stuff I just want to do BUT, often writing short, pithy stuff is more difficult than longer material so I never undercut myself on that front. And, I've posted enough here on the plague that is speculative work. I will not do it - ever.

    #5 Think of getting sucked into doing low price work like a vortex, a negative price spiral. Once you're in, you go further down and down, then it's near on impossible to get out. Let your cheaper competitors fight it out for low prices. I would look for a niche market to which you can bring something unique. It's easier to charge more if you are different from all the other milk bottles on the wall.

    #2 Hi @Ken Boddie. Good advice. I haven't had to turn down work, per se, recently. These days, I just scare them off with pricing that looks outrageous if you've ever only worked with monkeys. (And yet I don't get anywhere near those big agency fees Paul's talking about.) But like I said in the article, it can be hard to stick to your guns when several prospects in a row turn tail and run.

    The wrong words of British Legal system were corrected from "Hanged" to "Hang until Death".

    Well, the right words of Gandhiji got us United for Freedom.

    The US had recently changed 2 words in a climate change conference, changing the entire context of a 500 page + agreement.

    Here in India we are so good with words that no work gets done, we have to be better to actually get work done.

    Words are invaluable. Words can build a context that can change the meaning of a single word.

    As marketers, negotiators, trainers, speakers, Corporate professionals, social workers, social animals etc etc ... We are constantly reinventing words, there are countless possibilities but few which get the work done.

    It is possible that a lot of hardwork goes down the drain because someone comes up with something totally unacceptable which is tried by everyone purely out of curiosity and not utility or vice versa.

    Words are invaluable, but not at the cost of losing one's mind over failures. The mind can make invaluable words worthless. Keep thinking

    This is not a comment, but a spontaneous warm up to build contexts, till then whatever I have blurted is bullshit. I can prove it :)

    Interesting question, Alexa. I cannot answer from a professional writer's perspective but have spent a long career selling consulting services, including technical reports. The market will always dictate the credible range of charges - charge too much and you miss out on work - too little and you're working for nothing and lose respect to boot. As in all services, you must find out what market you are servicing and also know your clients and competitors well. @Paul Walters has given some dollar pointers but these will vary from location to location and from client to client. As Paul suggests, sometimes you need to be willing to walk away from a farcical request for proposal in which you are being taken for granted. If the client wants to pay peanuts then he/she has no appreciation for what he/she is getting (some potential for education here perhaps?) or else he/she is truly happy to get monkeys to do the work and just wants a ticked box result.

    cool article @Alexa Steele vexing questions indeed . I was tempted last year to go onto a site called Upwork where one has to 'bid' for a project . One on reply I remember was to write five speeches of 1000 words each .....the budget $200 . I kind of thought that dude was being cheap offering only $0.20 cents a word. Turns out it was $ 200 for all five speeches...Write your own bloody speeches was my terse reply ! Somebody though will probably do it meaning our profession is yet again cheapened . As a copywriter in the 'big agency world' I was hired out at $200 p/h and then when I had my own agency I hired myself out at $280 p/h .....I think thats fair ....after all its THEIR product I am spruiking. These days I scribble ( in between books) for airline in flight magazines ... the pay varies between $0.22c to $0.80c pr word....

    I considered prostitution but really I have to say I faiued at that!!!

I can't even explain it in a comment; gist: he locked himself in the studio ...and in between playing entire Doors, Pink Floyd, and Syd Barrett solo LP's...he ranted his delusional visions on the air.
    The campus police had to break the door down where upon he immediately took them out (knocked out --not killed) with a fire extinguisher...ON THE AIR!
