Content Writing

Need a blog post or some other content for your site? Have an idea but no time to pull it together? Make use of our content writing services and let our content writers do the hard work for you.

Content writing services

The written content on your website and marketing materials really matters – not just for telling people what you do and what you’re about, but for getting found in the first place.
Content marketing is becoming ever more important for SEO and search rankings, and if your business is not regularly publishing new content to keep your audience engaged, you could be losing out to your competitors.

And you’ll have a lot of competitors out there, so you need to do something.

If you already know what you want to write about but simply don’t have the time to bring it together in a professional way, just send us your requirements and we’ll have the finished piece back to you in no time at all.

But I’m not even at the ideas stage yet.

Equally, if you’re quite new to the concept of content marketing (which essentially involves producing a variety of engaging content to attract new visitors to your site and keep the regulars interested), we offer a complete content writing service which includes keyword research, content planning and content creation.

And we’re not just talking blog posts here. Yes, blogs that target your keywords are a great way to boost your search rankings and get more traffic to your site. But it’s a good idea to mix it up a bit with interviews, case studies, ebooks… there are loads of different types of content you can produce as part of your content marketing strategy.

You also need to check that your content is structured properly, giving your cornerstone content the attention it deserves.

What about creating website copy?

Perhaps you’re starting completely from scratch with a new website and need to get some copy written for each of your pages before you even start thinking about blogs and ebooks. Well, guess what? We also offer website copywriting as part of our content writing services – yay! And we’ll make sure all your content is SEO optimised and tailored to speak to your target audience in your company’s tone of voice.

We could go on, but you probably get the idea. If you need some written content created from scratch, you’re in the right place. Take a look at some of our prices below or contact us directly if you need something different.

If you already have some content but need it checked, edited or re-worked, it’s our content editing services or proofreading services you’re after.

Content writing prices

One-off content creation

It would be impossible for us to list all our content writing prices because there are so many possibilities, but here are some of the most common things we do, to give you an idea (all prices in USD):

Blog post 700-800 words (topic and keyword specified by client) $75
Blog post 1500-1800 words (topic and keyword specified by client) $150
Ebook $80 per 1,000 words

Regular content writing rates

Other types of content (case studies, interviews, etc.) 1 per month
Idea research No – provided by client Yes
Keyword research No – provided by client* Yes

If you have different content writing requirements, please get in touch so we can give you a quote. We aim to provide a flexible service that meets the needs of each client individually, so don’t worry if you need something a bit different.

P.S. All the content we create is proofread and formatted with headings before we deliver it to you, so all you have to do is publish and market it.

P.P.S. It should go without saying that we create 100% original content. Plagiarism is one sure-fire way to get your rankings plummeting!

Content Editing & Re-writing

Have some words but want to change how they sound? Or some old copy that could do with livening up? Leave it to our content editors. Our content editing services will transform your website copy into something that your brand is proud to be associated with.

Content editing and re-writing

It’s ok to admit that your website content, digital assets and marketing materials are looking a bit tired and aren’t working as hard as they could be to deliver results.

But it’s not ok to just ignore the problem and let your business settle for less than its full potential.

Great website content and copy should:

  • Help new customers find out about your product or service through organic search
  • Tell people why they should take notice of your business
  • Connect with your target audience on a personal level
  • Express your brand personality

And our content editing services are not just limited to your website. For the very best results, you should ensure all your online and offline assets are properly and uniformly edited. This includes:

  • Websites
  • Blogs
  • Guest posts
  • Social media profiles and posts
  • Emails
  • Ebooks, white papers, reports, etc.
  • Leaflets and brochures
  • Anything else representing your business

Are you talking to me?

It may be that you need to re-write your copy for a specific audience. For example, if you’re addressing an international audience of non-native English speakers it’s no good having content that’s crammed full of idioms and obscure words. They just won’t get it. And Baby Boomers will connect with a different style of language to Millennials. So one of the first questions we’ll ask you when we start working together is “Who is this content for?”. Or “At whom is this content aimed?”, if you prefer things the traditional way.

How’s your SEO?

Your copy doesn’t just speak to humans; it also speaks to the search engine robots that crawl your site to work out what it’s all about and who would be interested in what you have to offer. We’ll make sure your keywords are naturally present in your digital copy – whether it’s your website, social media pages or blogs – so search engines can easily find your content and deliver it in the right search results.

If you haven’t yet set up a blog to boost your search rankings, you might also be interested in our content writing services.

Content editing & re-writing prices

Partial edit Full re-write
Checking for errors, word choice, etc. Yes Yes
Adding keywords for SEO* Yes Yes
Changing tone of voice Yes, occasional words or phrases Yes, completely incorporated
Cost per 1,000 words $25 $40

All prices in USD.

*We can conduct one-off keyword research for your business for a fee of $80.

So, if you have a website or other content in need of a good edit, just contact us with your requirements so we can confirm the price and get to work.

Proofreading Services

Already happy with how your words sound but just want to check that no little mistakes have sneaked in? Sounds like you need our proofreading services.

Writing correction proofreading services

Our proofreading services are for you if you already have some great content but you want a professional to have a look over it and make sure it’s completely free of errors before you publish, send, share or print it.

Not everyone knows their ‘theres’ from their ‘they’res’ or understands how to punctuate perfectly, but for the ones that do, any typos in your content will stand out like a sore thumb. One or two might be forgiven, but frequent mistakes will just make you look unprofessional.

If you can’t be bothered to check your writing properly, why should a potential client trust you to do a good job for them?

What if English isn’t my native language?

We are happy to do ESL proofreading as well, and we understand the struggles of writing in a foreign language – you just want your content to sound natural to a native English speaker. We’ll even send you some guidance on common mistakes you’re making so you can improve for next time.

What’s included in your proofreading services?

We’ll make sure everything is in order with your:

  • Spelling (in whichever type of English you specify)
  • Grammar
  • Syntax
  • Word choice
  • Word repetition

What’s not included?

Our proofreading services don’t cover:

  • Formatting
  • Search engine optimisation (SEO)
  • Change of style/voice
  • Fact checking

If you’re after any of these things, try our content editing and re-writing services instead.

That’s just what I need. What are your proofreading rates?

We’d love to be able to publish a fixed price for our proofreading services, but the answer is “it depends”. Mainly on the quality of the original document, but also on the word count and how quickly you need the work completed.

Our prices start at US$15 per 1,000 words, but if you need it like yesterday it’ll be a bit more.

If your English isn’t fluent, that also means the rate will be slightly higher. It’s nothing personal; it just takes us longer to complete the work when there are lots of corrections to make.

If you require proofreading services regularly, for example for a blog or email newsletter, we can offer lower rates on a long-term basis – just let us know what you need.

To get a quote for proofreading your website, article, or document, you can contact us with the details or email hello@stuffwithwords.com, attaching the file you’d like us to proofread. We’ll get right back to you with your personalised rate and if you’re happy with it, we’ll go ahead with the work. If not, no hard feelings.
