Christian Copywriting and Proofreading Services

Welcome, Friend!

You have spent countless hours in prayer over your God-given calling. And many days figuring out how to fulfill your purpose. On faith, you have built up your business, ministry, or organization into what it is today.

You poured out your heart and soul into your services, products, and offerings.

You have a website and even a social media presence. Yet you aren’t seeing the traffic you expected. 

Or your traffic isn’t converting to opt-ins, sales, or engagement.

You are frustrated. Wearing multiple hats. Not sure what to do next. Praying for guidance. Hoping that all of the time and energy you have invested was not in vain. 

Are you reaching the right people?

How do you encourage the right people to take the right action without feeling like a pushy salesperson?

How can you show the world what you have to offer while still being authentic, ethical, and true to your Christian values?

You need a faith-based copywriter.

Whether you market yourself under the Christian label or not, you need someone who understands your needs and mission.

You need a conscientious copywriter who shares your values and considers them when writing for you.

Someone who can share your story and voice to reach your target audience and build trust.

Your mission is clear. Your time is precious.
Let me use the power of words to share your story

with the people you want to reach.

Your questions answered

What is copywriting?

Copywriting is the art and science of creating quality written content that engages, builds trust, and guides your audience to a specific action.

This can be signing up for access to a free item, reading a blog post, or following you on social media. It could also be donating to your ministry, buying your company’s product, purchasing your business’ services, or visiting your church.

Why should I hire a Christian copywriter?

There are many copywriters skilled in compelling writing. But as a Christian, you desire to serve the Lord, abide by your values, and further your mission. A faith-based copywriter shares your values, understands your purpose, and uses copywriting techniques to guide your audience toward the desired action ethically.

No need to worry about slimy sales tactics, shady persuasion techniques, or worldly approaches that don’t align with your beliefs.

Christian copywriting means that I get you. Your worldview, morals, and purpose.

I don’t just understand them. I share them.

In my writing, I use ethical techniques to engage with your target audience, understand their pain points, build relationships through trust and authenticity, and guide the right people to act upon the solution you are offering — via your services or products.

Let me help you fulfill your God-given calling.

What is SEO?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) refers to the process of making a website or web page content optimized for search engines. Quality copy utilizing strategic keywords in a natural way builds your website’s credibility and authority with search engines like Google and Bing. 

On Google, for example, the top 5 search results get around 70% of the total clicks. 1

Yet, interestingly, 70-80% of searchers prefer organic search results over the paid search results.2

In time, optimized content improves a site’s ranking in search results organically. No hacks. No gimmicks. This helps the right people find you and your services.

How much is a consultation?

The 30-minute consultation is FREE

How do payments work?

Stand-alone projects: For projects under $500, the full amount is due before any work is started.

For projects over $500, 50% is due at contract signing and the remaining 50% will be invoiced when the first draft(s) are sent over for your review.

Note: No revisions will be completed until final payment is received.

Retainers: The agreed-upon monthly price will be invoiced on the first business day of the month for the duration of the contract and is due 7 days after receiving the invoice.

How long does it take to complete a copywriting project?

The length of a project depends on:

  • The size and scope of your project
  • My availability

Don’t worry. We’ll discuss the project timeline and milestones together to find the right balance.

To secure your place in my schedule, you must sign a contract and pay the first 50%.

How many edits/revisions are included?

By default, all of my projects include one round of edits/revision. Please review the deliverables carefully to make the most out of your revision.

If you would like additional rounds of edits/revisions, we can arrange it at an additional cost.

Why Google Docs?

Google Drive provides a suite of software, including Docs, Sheets, Presentations, and more, that allow easier collaboration. We can track changes, allow comments, and revert to older versions. And since Google Drive is cloud-based, using and viewing Google Docs is not dependent on what software someone may or may not have installed on their computer.
