  1. 1. How to start an SEO copywritingbusiness How to ask for money before you start a writing project
  2. 2. Many new copywriters are afraid to askfor money... - They’re afraid that the client will be “put off” by the request. - They’re afraid that they’ll ask for too much up front and lose the gig. - We’ve been brought up to believe that asking for money is bad.
  3. 3. Reality check: Always get a 30-50%deposit before starting work. - Setting up payment terms is perfectly reasonable and OK. - If a new client won’t give you a deposit and set up terms, walk away. Don’t start before the check is cleared. - Small (quick) job? Get all the money up front.
