Do you offer re-writes/renos of current natural health and natural foods copy?
Yes, I call this: “copy doctoring” for eBooks or promotions, and “SEO editing” for web copy.
For SEO campaigns, keyphrase editing generally only works for internal webpages, while main pages (such as the Homepage) should usually be re-written entirely for maximum benefit.
Give me a call and we can set up a time to review.
Q: Do you charge by the hour or by the project?
A: I charge by the project. This includes all communication between myself and the client (via phone or email), concepting, researching, writing, revisions, and the final copy.
No surprises, just one clear flat fee.
Q: Do you offer blogging packages?
A: Yes, I encourage them! Every successful natural health blogging campaign depends on a regular, consistent posting rhythm.
Some clients have me ghost all their posts, some have me ghost half and renovate/edit half. Pricing is determined by length, amount of research required, and number of posts per month.
Please contact me so we can discuss your needs and draw up a custom quote.
Q: How do you invoice for your natural health copywriting and content marketing services?
For copywriting, I invoice 50% up front, and 50% upon project completion. Retainer projects, such as blogging, social media content, or eNewsletters, are billed monthly.
Q: Do you guarantee results?
A: I guarantee you will be satisfied with your copy until it has been distributed or “goes live”. Unfortunately no copywriter can guarantee results passed that point, due to the many factors beyond our control such as pricing, email or mailing lists, competition, launch strategy, major events, demand, customer preferences, etc.
Q: Is all your nutritional supplement copywriting and content marketing DSHEA compliant?
A: I am trained and have years of experience writing under DSHEA and FTC guidelines. However, each client may choose to interpret labeling and advertising laws a little differently in relation to their product or service. Some like to push the envelope, others stay conservative.
As stated in my contract, I always strive to uphold the client’s vision for DSHEA compliance but I am not a legal expert and cannot provide legal advice.
Therefore, I always recommend the client have their copy and content reviewed by legal counsel before being distributed, published, or posted.

Q: How many re-writes are included in a project?
A: Re-writes are included in your quoted price. Generally clients are thrilled with the first draft, and more than one re-write is rare, but rest assured I will tweak it until it exceeds your expectations.
Q: Do you write all the copy yourself or do you use other copywriters?
A: Unless I specify otherwise, all your copy/content is written by me.
Q: Will you take rush jobs?
A: I’m happy to accommodate rush jobs if my workload permits. I may charge a “rush fee” depending on the scope of project. Please contact me and we can make a plan.
Q: If I hire you as a ghost health writer or blogger, how do you protect my confidentiality?
A: On principle, I never reveal my ghost writing clients’ identity. Not only is it unethical, but I wouldn’t remain a respected ghost writer for long if I did.
For additional peace of mind, I am always willing to sign a confidentiality agreement provided by the client.
Q: As a natural foods copywriter, do you offer recipe development?
A: Why yes I do! With a background as a Certified Natural Foods Chef (graduated from the Natural Gourmet Cookery School) I know how to create dynamite good-for-you recipes and cooking tips. Please contact me for rates and details.
Q: Do you offer editing services?
A: Though I am not a professional editor or proofreader by trade, I do offer “copy doctoring” services and some editing for existing clients (for example, as part of a ghost-blogging package) based on availability.
Any other questions? Answers and cheerful service are just a phone call or email away.
