DIGITAL MARKETING COPYWRITER

TERMS OF BUSINESS

I tried to make this as simple as possible, as I believe the voice of the brand should be applied to everything, including documents such as terms of business and contract, which are typically expected to be full of legal terminology. If you haven’t caught it yet, let me make it easier for you: The voices of 140 Copywriter are;

  • Sufficient, yet brief and bullshit-free
  • Minimalist, yet comprehensive
  • Super creative, yet meaningful
  • Conceptual. Honest. Authentic.

Although the language of this document is uncomplicated, the intentions are no laughing matter. These terms of business are under the exclusive jurisdiction of English courts.

THE PROJECT

Project details and structure depend on many conditions. However, the general procedure consists of a few steps:

Firstly, I will interview you or ask you for the brief. Don’t worry. I will prepare the required brief inquiries and present them to you. 

According to the brief, you’ll accept my short proposal for the project. You should agree and sign-off the proposal to get me to start the work.

If it’s not a very small task, I’ll probably need some time for in-depth research, analysis, concept, and idea generation before getting to the actual writing part.

Then I’ll write the initial draft and send it to you to check if we are on the same track. If yes, I’ll go on and finish it. If not, we’ll discuss irrelevancies and fix them.

140 REVISIONS

I know. You’re tired of copywriters complaining about your revision requests. I actually understand them, but I understand you, as well. Therefore, I offer up to 140 revisions (almost unlimited). I’ll be honest: This is very risky for me as I may spend way more time than I expected on the project. However, I don’t want you to worry about revision limits as I always try to build a candid and friendly work environment.

  • You can request the first revision in seven business days and the subsequent ones in three business days after I submit the last version of the same work (after that, I will be busy celebrating it as I’ll assume you don’t have any revision requests). This limit makes me able to organize my schedule. Also, revisions are the most efficient when I’m still in the right mindset for the project.
  • Revisions may take some time. Because I usually think you wouldn’t need them. But when you do, I should look at my schedule and reserve time. Yes, I am honest.
  • The offer only applies up to the point where you sign off my work, publish it, or begin using it on your live website, or in apps or products.

COPYRIGHT

When I have received full and final payment as described in this agreement, copyright of the work I produce is automatically assigned to you. You can then use the work however you wish.

However, until the final payment is received, the copyright of the work remains with me.

If you decide to use my money-back and time compensation guarantee, I’ll assign copyright of the work to you in a written form as a part of the deal (detailed information is on the 100% money-back and time compensation guarantee section below), and then you can also use it however you wish.

I love to show off my work, so I reserve the right to share my experiences with the project and link to your completed project as a part of my portfolio (ghostwriting projects are exceptions).

DEADLINES

I believe in hitting deadlines, but I can only do this with your help. So, I can’t be responsible for a missed deadline if you have been late with a down payment, slow to supply materials, or not provided feedback to agreed timescales.

As you would also understand, I also can’t be responsible for deadlines missed due to circumstances entirely beyond my control, like floods, war, family emergencies, illness, acts of God, and so on.

Usually, a deadline is agreed upon for the delivery of the first draft content. We can agree on timeframes for further changes later, but I’ll do everything I can to meet your needs.

COSTS AND PAYMENT

My proposal will explicitly show the price of the services I’ll do for you. Price calculation can be in three forms depending on the project and your preferences:

  • One-time fixed fee
  • Defined costs for the separate components of the project
  • Time-based (per hour, per day, or month)

If I have not received any feedback or comments within below timeframes of submitting work to you, I will assume you are happy the assignment has been completed and will invoice for the remaining balance:

  • Seven business days for the first submission of the final work
  • Three business days if you have requested at least one revision

I’m not registered for VAT, and my payment terms are 30 days after the invoice date.

Additional exclusive details concerning costs and payment will be included in the proposal.

100% MONEY-BACK AND TIME COMPENSATION GUARANTEE

Let me make it entirely risk-free for you. I hope we don’t get to this point that you need to use this offer, however, if you do, I’m very sorry. If you are not satisfied with the final copy, regardless of the milestones or payment conditions we’ve agreed, you won’t pay any. If you’ve already paid, you’ll get a full refund. No questions asked. I’m confident in my abilities to take all the risks to build loyalty.

This is not only about refunding your money back, but also providing all the right to use the copy anyway as compensation for your valuable time invested in our cooperation. No ploys, no stress, no surprises. You can request to use this offer within below timeframes after I submit the last version of the same work:

  • Seven business days for the first submission of the final work
  • Three business days if you have requested at least one revision

After that, I will be busy celebrating it as I’ll assume you are satisfied with the work. This limit makes me able to plan out my life. 

The offer only applies up to the point where you sign off my work, publish it, or begin using it on your live website, or in apps or products.

In case you decide to request money-back and time compensation, I’ll assign copyright of the work to you in a written form and try to refund as soon as possible in 30 days after your request if you’ve already paid me.

CANCELLATION 

Oh, no! Let’s try to figure out a way to save our lovely agreement.

If we can’t, and the agreement is seized by you, me, or both before the project finishes, I’ll refund all that you’ve paid me for this project as soon as possible in 30 days.

LEGAL STUFF 

I will do my best to ensure all facts and statements in my work are true and that it doesn’t infringe upon any copyright or other rights of third parties.

However, I can’t be liable to you or any third party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings, complaints, claims, litigation, or other incidental, consequential, or special damages that arise regarding the assignment. 

If any provision of these terms of business shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from the terms of business and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
