Additionally, writers reach out to us and apply online to join our network. To ensure these applicants meet Copywriter Central’s criteria, we carefully vet each writer who applies and accept only those with portfolios that demonstrate a rich body of experience.
All Copywriter Central writers operate as independent contractors and are hired on a project-by-project basis.
We use a combination of proprietary technology and human advisors in California to ensure our clients are matched to the most relevant and experienced writers for each project’s unique requirements.
Writers are matched to projects in one of three ways:
Clients can pay writers quickly and easily online with credit card. (If your business cannot pay via credit card, please, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.) Writers set up a merchant account through Balanced, our payment service provider, to receive payments via direct deposit. Writers negotiate their fees on a per-project basis and include Copywriter Central’s 25% fee into the hourly rate they quote clients.
The payment process works like this:
Although tax calculations and payments are the sole responsibility of our clients and the writers they hire, we strive to make the paperwork as easy to manage as possible. As a convenience for our clients, Copywriter Central generates 1099-MISCs on their behalf for each writer who earns over $600 during a tax year. Our payments service provider, Balanced, will issue 1099-Ks to writers who earn over $20,000 and have over 200 transactions with clients over the course of a tax year.
Our business depends on your satisfaction. We use our customers' feedback to curate our network of writers. This way clients hire only writers with reputations for performance and professionalism.
Additionally, we offer tools for online communications between writers and clients, as well as hands-on support to assist with matching writers and clients and troubleshooting any issues that arise along the way.
Finally, since clients have the authority to approve or reject their writer's hourly time logs, we encourage writers to log hours frequently so that work stops the moment any concerns come up.
We provide a standard Service Agreement for clients and writers' convenience. If you have additional needs and terms not referenced in the standard Service Agreement, please, discuss these issues with your writer before making a formal work offer to ensure that you're both on the same page about your project requirements.
Rates vary based on writers' experience and expertise. Hourly rates start at $50/hour for very standard writing projects and go up to $300/hour for our most accomplished and seasoned writers’ time. Copywriter Central takes a 25% fee from each transaction to continue maintaining and improving on the convenience we provide to both clients and writers.
