I am a professional SEO copywriter with more than a decade of experience in online media, used to writing copy for blogs, websites, newsletters, marketing materials, brochures and much more besides. I also supply travel-related content for online and offline publications.

I charge £50 per hour. This is my rule of thumb and in that time I can typically write a reasonably straightforward 500-word article. If you have an unusually tight deadline, or there is a lot of research involved, I may charge a bit more. It all depends on the job in hand but that’s the basic idea, so please feel free to drop me a line.
