Maria's Copywriting Qualifications

Answers to Questions You May Have About Working With Me.


First, I'd like to thanks for your interest in my copywriting services…

Now, maybe your here out of curiosity. Some people are, especially if they have never hired a copywriter before.

But more likely you need a good copywriter – someone who combines writing skill with the ability to communicate clearly and effectively in a way your customers can understand and respond to.

Whatever your reason, you want to know more about a writer before you hire her. If we were sitting in your office chatting, I know you would have some questions you’d want to ask me about my experience and qualifications, so I’d like to answer a few of them for you right here. If you have additional questions I hope you'll give me a call or drop me an email.

You can contact me if you'd like to get more information. And I offer a free consultation so we can discover if we would work well together.

What type of experience do you have?


I have been writing copy for over sixteen years and have worked on a wide variety of projects that include newsletters, brochures, case studies, search engine optimized web content, articles on various subjects, blogs and more. You can view my Samples here. 

I am also the author of several books and ebooks that include:

and my novels:

I have also taught writing to young writers in the Temecula Valley Unified School District and held the position as judge for a program called celebrate writing that encourages young writers to express themselves through creative writing.    

Before becoming a freelance writer, I worked in the legal field as well as in education. Along with my other tasks, I also wrote marketing and advertising materials for a wide variety of audiences.

 

What is your educational background?

 

I have a B.S degree in Business Management from the University of Phoenix as well as a degree in Paralegal Studies from the University of San Diego. Both programs required a considerable amount of writing & research.

I am also a graduate of American Writers & Artists Inc. that focused exclusively on commercial writing. I've taken many courses through AWAI including Accelerated Copywriting, Business to Business Copywriting, E-Newsletter writing, Web Writing, Writing for the Health & Wellness Market and several other courses to enhance my skills and experience.

I continue my education by regularly taking classes as well as reading extensively on business writing, SEO, advertising and marketing.

 

What kind of assignments do you handle?

 

I cover a full spectrum of assignments. About 85% of my business is writing copy such as web content, brochures, e-newsletters, articles, e-books, instruction manuals and guides. The rest includes creating a wide assortment of marketing communications materials including sales letters, ad copy, fliers and postcards.

My specialty is my ability to write clear, credible copy in a conversational style. Whether you are informing, persuading, educating or motivating, I provide copy that communicates your ideas clearly and effectively to your audience.

 

How much does it cost to hire you?

 

For any type of writing assignment -- brochure, web content, article, newsletter, case study, article, manual or whatever project you need – just let me know what you have in mind and I will quote a price. I work on a project basis, so there are no surprises. I deliver on time, every time. 

 

How long will it take for you to write my copy?

 

It really depends on the project. For big jobs, preferably I like to have two to three weeks to work on a project. That gives me time to research, write, edit, polish and revise until I am happy with every word.

I do realize that you may not have that much time, so if you have a rush job, you just need to tell me the due date and if I am able to take on the project, I will make sure to deliver it on-time or before the due date. I guarantee it.

 

What happens if we want you to make changes to the copy?

 

All you need to do is tell me what you want improved and what the changes will be and I will make them fast. There are no charges for up to two revisions.  They are included in the flat fee we agreed to for the project, provided they are assigned within 30 days of your receipt of the copy and are not based on a change in the assignment after the copy has been submitted.

Since I do a lot of preliminary research before I begin writing, such as client questionnaire, interviews, and reading all background materials, I have found that most clients are pleased with my copy when they receive it, but if you are not 100% satisfied, I will revise the copy according to your specifications –at my expense.

 

How do I order from you?

 

Hiring me as your writing partner is easy.

First, tell me what services you are interested in and what goals you’re looking to achieve with the project. You will gather the background information I need to get up to speed on your product or service and I will e-mail or bring you my questionnaire so I can be sure to find out all I can. 

You don’t need to organize anything; I’ll do that, its part of my process. If I have additional questions, I will call or e-mail you, whatever your preference, and ask. Once you give me the go ahead, I will begin working on your project! Easy, right?

So…why not try my service for your next brochure, website, newsletter, e-book, article, manual or annual report? I promise, you will be pleased with the results.

Client Testimonials


"A cardinal rule of writing to follow is, never write your own back cover copy. Why? You’re too close to the work and can’t be objective. Enter Maria Pease.

I contracted her services to write the back cover copy for my upcoming novel, Crossing Lives. The only caveat was, my manuscript was nowhere near finished.  Despite this obstacle, Maria took on the project.

Most copywriters won’t touch this type of project unless you can furnish them with a copy of the entire work to be summarized.

In a span of three weeks, with just a few chapters and handful of character sketches to go by, she was able to craft a masterful blurb that captured the essence of the story I’m trying to tell.

Maria communicated with me on consistent basis and took a personal interest in my project. This was a pleasant surprise. Most “work for hire” is cold, aloof, and distant.

I highly recommend Maria Pease for all your copy writing needs."
