Q. What does a freelance copywriter do?
As a freelance copywriter, I write copy and content for small and large businesses looking to engage with their audience. If you’re looking to sell or promote your products or services, the right content can help.
Q. Who are you?
I’m Kelly Quinn, a freelance content writer, copywriter, and marketing strategist. I’ve worked for some of Australia and the UK’s largest financial service and investment firms. I’ve led campaigns to increase brand awareness, grow new business, generate media coverage and engage employees.

Q. What do you write?
I have over 20 years of experience writing a whole range of online and offline content. I’ve contributed to annual reports, written CEO speeches, media releases, internal communications, newsletters, email campaigns, brochures, and corporate documents, including HR policies and procedures.
These days, I spend a lot of time writing blogs, articles, web copy, social media copy, email newsletters, ebooks, and more, primarily focused on driving traffic to my client’s websites by incorporating keywords based on SEO research. Whatever your copy needs, I can help.
Q. Where are you based?
I currently live on beautiful Jeju Island in South Korea. I’ve got a home office set up with everything I need to service your business from here, and I’m only ever an email or Zoom call away.
Q. How much do you cost?
Because each job is unique, I prefer to quote for each project individually. That way, you know exactly what you’re paying for upfront, without hidden costs.
When you contact me and provide some details about what you need, I’ll send you a quote to consider. I can provide an hourly or per-word rate if you’d prefer.
Q. Can we chat about the project, or is everything over email?
If you’re looking for a larger project or ongoing work, I’d love to do a Zoom call to understand your business, what you want to achieve, and who your target audience is. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a one-off job or simple copy, then an email brief is all I need to get started.
Q. Do you have experience writing for my industry?
I have extensive experience writing for a wide range of industries. I write simply and keep it uncomplicated. As a result, I can quickly adapt my style and tone to suit your business.
I’ve written for various industries, including finance, building and construction, travel, insurance, retail, and much more.
Q. How long does it take for you to write my copy?
The time it takes to write depends on the size of your project and what other projects I’m working on when you get in touch. I aim to be as flexible as possible if you have tight timeframes but also respect my existing clients and their deadlines.
I can turn a job around in a few days if it’s a simple blog post or web page. If you’re looking for a larger project, like an ebook or website copy, I can usually turn this around in about a week. It depends on how long it takes to get all the information from you.
Q. Do you research your copy?
Yes, I do extensive research besides the information you provide to ensure that my copy reads well and is factually correct. I’ll insert links to any sites or statistics so you can source this information or check it before publishing. I use multiple sources to ensure the accuracy of the content.
Q. What if I need changes to the copy?
If you need any edits, let me know. My fees include up to two rounds of revisions. The more detailed the brief and the more information you can provide, including samples of your tone of voice and existing material, there’s usually less changes required.
Q. I already have some copy written, but it requires some editing. Can you help?
Absolutely. As well as a marketing strategist and content writer I’m also an experienced copyeditor. I can read your copy to ensure it flows well, is free from grammar and spelling errors, and make suggestions to help improve the readability.
