Are you planning to outsource work to an external copywriter? When you’re researching rates as part of your selection process, I suggest you forget hourly or per-word pricing and ask for a project fee.
I always provide project fee-based packages and quotes to my potential clients. In part, this is because project fees benefit me as a consultant. However, as a nonprofit communicator working with outside writers, project fees will benefit you as well.
When is the right time to outsource your nonprofit copywriting projects? How can a nonprofit organization expect to benefit from outsourcing to a professional copywriter? Here are 11 reasons to outsource to a professional copywriter

But it’s important to clarify which skills you need for your project, no matter who you hire.

However, I’d like to attempt to shed some light on what you can expect to pay a professional copywriter, based on my own work.
Over almost five years of consulting, I have been fortunate to work will all kinds of great clients. In fact, one of my clients is pretty much perfect and this post is about her. Why should you care?
