Pleased to e-meet you… I’m Kate Merryweather from Melbourne, Australia. I’m a website copywriter with a background in public relations. I started specialising in website copywriting in 2012 because I like writing, variety and freelancing. I’ve been working in corporate communications for 17 years.
Who are you?
Are you any good?
Why, yes. I write fast, saving you money. And I’m nice.
What is website copywriting?
Put simply: writing the words on your website. This might include the words on the home page, about page, product or service descriptions, case studies, frequently asked questions or other bits and bobs.
What about copywriting like this stuff: © ™ ®?
That’s for copyright lawyers.
• Copywriting: writing words
• Copyright: protecting your legal right to own and earn income the content you created – a book, design, song, image, etc.
By the way, don’t put those trademark symbols throughout your copy. No one cares.
What about blogging?
Yes! Blogging is important for websites, as it helps build SEO traffic. I love writing blogs.
What is SEO copywriting?
Good SEO copywriting weaves important keywords into your website in a natural, authentic way, so that search engines like Google can find you.
Do you offer SEO services too?
No, I just do the SEO copywriting – there are many more specialist elements to SEO.
Do you design and build websites?
No, but I can recommend a fabulous and non-pricey person to help you.
What do you charge?
Do you charge a deposit?
Yes, I charge a 30 per cent deposit before the project commences. The balance will be charged monthly or at the end of the project.
Who is your favourite Spice Girl?
Thanks for asking. It’s Ginger.
