General Coaching Questions

What is the fee for copywriting coaching?

Before we start, we’ll have a quick chat about your writing challenges and goals, to work out how much time we might need.

We might start with an hour together, a few hours or a day. It’s completely up to you.

Once we know what we’re doing, we’ll arrange a time for your first session.

My one-to-one coaching rates are:

  • 30 minutes – $125 + GST
  • 1 hour – $200 + GST

Discounts are available for ongoing coaching.

How long is each coaching session?

It’s up to you. Some people choose one or more 30-minute to 2-hour power sessions.

Others need to learn pro copywriter skills as quickly as possible for work. So, they’ll book a fully customised private workshop. This could run over:

  • 1 x full day
  • 2 x half days
  • 3-hour sessions over 3 weeks
  • 2-hour sessions over 4 weeks

I can take your through all the options and benefits of each.

Where is copywriting coaching held?

We can do it online, face-to-face (if you’re in Sydney), or a blend of each.

Whatever suits you. Darn, I’m flexible 😊

How do we decide what to discuss?

In your discovery call, we’ll go over your main pain points. If you’re not sure what you want, I’ll go away and come back with some recommendations.

Together, we’ll decide on a specific area to hone in on.

What People Say

My mentoring session with Simon was mind-blowing. He’s super generous with his advice and has incredible depth of knowledge on SEO, website copywriting and site design for real business impact. He gave me so many actionable insights for my business.

Rachael Bailey - Lead Content Strategist, Writer & Producer

Simon's coaching sessions really helped me master my craft, as well as speed writing, and digital copy. His knowledge of the industry and tricks of the writing trade are second to none. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Lara Lee - Chef, Cookbook Author and Journalist

I booked Simon for copywriting coaching as I’d just landed my first freelance writer contract. I was in meltdown about what I didn’t know. He allayed my fears and concentrated on the things I needed. He’s extremely knowledgeable about his craft and the industry, and his personable nature made him a pleasure to work with.

Mary-Jane Partridge, Copywriting Creative

I was so happy to do Simon’s one-on-one coaching. We covered a lot of ground, at my pace, and no question was too silly. He knows copywriting inside out, and explained concepts so clearly and simply. The workbook has been invaluable too.
