  1. 1. 7 WAYS TO GET THE MOST VALUE FROM A FREELANCE COPYWRITER
  2. 2. You’ve decided to hire a freelance copywriter to help you grow your sales or to support you in your business development efforts.
  3. 3. What now?
  4. 4. How do you maximize the relationship?
  5. 5. How do you create the climate for a thriving business relationship?
  6. 6. 7 WAYS YOU CAN MAKE SURE YOU GET THE MOST RETURN ON YOUR INVESTMENT 1 Be clear on expectations. Don’t assume anything. 2 Provide samples of past campaigns that were successful. Context is important. Look through past campaign failures if you understand why they did or didn’t work. 3 Prepare all the details your copywriter will need to include in the copy. If you have a Creative Brief to guide the campaign, be sure he or she has a copy. 4 Decide on a production calendar. You’re not your copywriter’s only client, and this project isn’t your only responsibility.
  7. 7. 5 Schedule a meeting with the team who will be working on the campaign— including your copywriter. Personal connections matter. Let each internal team member clearly describe their needs and how they see this copy being used. 6 Be explicit about who approves the work. Too many approvers can create delays and inconsistencies in the copy. 7 Be prompt with your feedback, approvals, and payment. Significant delays in feedback, approvals, and payment can create unnecessary stress and diminish the opportunity for future engagements.
