Running a successful copywriting business involves more than writing copy.
It requires clear and professional client communications. And an ability to properly manage the “business end” of your projects.
You could spend hours drafting responses to client inquiries. Days preparing proposals. And years developing the perfect system to prevent embarrassing mistakes from making it in front of your clients.
Some copywriters never get it right.

Your first phone call sets the tone for your entire client relationship. Your New Prospect Intake Checklist will keep you on track. Know all the right questions to ask, and sound like a confident professional. Your client will know every aspect of their project has been considered when you send over your proposal.
- Fee Schedule
Professionals don’t pull rates out of thin air. They have a fee schedule. This template covers all the most common writing projects. Plus, it helps you negotiate well so you don’t leave money on the table.
- Project Proposal
Your project proposal isn’t a price quote. It’s a sales letter! This done-for-you Project Proposal Template spells out every detail, and reminds your prospect why hiring you is a no-brainer.
- Project Terms of Agreement
Avoid unpleasant surprises by clearly defining project terms: who owns the copy, when and how you get paid, legal responsibilities, and more. This concise yet comprehensive agreement covers it all without needing to hire a lawyer. Having the wording for a project agreement eliminates one of the biggest worries for most freelancers. (This alone is worth the cost of the program!)

- Creative Brief
The Creative Brief may be the most important — and least used — document needed to write a new control. Before you write a single word, the Creative Brief ensures you have the key insights you need to connect deeply with your reader and make the sale, get the click or sign-up, or move the prospect further through the sales funnel.
- Project Time Frames Reference Sheet
Hit every deadline by knowing how long each step of every project will take. This easy reference sheet helps you guide your client’s expectations and prevent over commitment from sabotaging your success.
- Testimonial Request and Approval
A testimonial is a customer comment that expresses his or her satisfaction with your client’s products or services. It’s a quotation you’ll attribute to the customer. Effective testimonials provide proof of your benefit claims, and make any copy you write stronger. Clients will value the effort you put into gathering powerful testimonials and getting them approved. These templates will help you with both steps of the process.
- Content Map (Web)
Copy for the Web may be placed differently than copy for print. That’s why we’ve included this easy-to-use template to help you clearly communicate where the various copy elements you write should appear on your client’s web page.
