Everything is included; from keyword selection right through to publishing on your website.
What is the word count for each article?
We work within SurferSEO’s recommendations so articles are usually between 1,000 and 2,000 words. You pay for the article, not the words on the page. This helps us to avoid filler content and concentrate on the SEO ranking aspects.
What if SurferSEO suggests more than 3,000 words?
If it’s one article in a batch, then we usually go ahead and write it. If your niche happens to have most articles at 3,000+ words then we charge $265 per article.
Why do other clients hire CopySmiths?
We have an in-house SEO Copywriting training program that each of our writers completes before they write for you. The course culminates in a very specific SEO Checklist that has helped our clients move from no organic traffic to 100,000s of visitors per month.
Can you blog monthly for me?
Yes. Buy a package of 20 articles and we’ll publish according to your preferred schedule. For example if you’d like to publish twice week then you’ll have enough articles for 10 weeks or 2.5 months. Order again when you want to top-up your blog queue.
Do you use SurferSEO or Page Optimizer Pro?
We switched from Page Optimizer Pro to SurferSEO and have developed a deep understanding of the tool and its effects on rank. We can either use your account or our account. There is no cost difference.
What blog formats do you offer?
Formats include regular ol’ blog articles, guest posts, top-of-funnel articles, product reviews, how-to guides, affiliate posts, and short comparison guides.
Do you write landing pages, product descriptions, squeeze pages etc?
No. We specialise in blog article writing from keyword selection right through to publishing in your CMS.
Can you choose the keywords for me?
Yes. We can suggest keywords or you can provide your own list. The price stays the same.
However, please note that we are not an SEO company. We don’t dive into your business or analytics to find unicorns. We pick keywords that are based on commonsense and low-hanging fruit.
Content Gap Analysis
Usually, when you have an older website, we’ll start with a Content Gap analysis in Ahrefs. This means that we find your competitor’s keywords and then determine whether you’ve written about them before. We search your site (site:www.company.com “keyword”) to see if you’ve written about it before. If your most obvious competitors have written on the keyword, then this is often a good way to get started.
High Volume, Low Keyword Difficulty
We can look for keywords in your industry that have higher volume and lower difficulty. We usually set the benchmark to above 1,000 volume and below 25 keyword difficulty. The volume increases depending on your niche. E.g. parenting topics usually have 30,000 monthly searches so we set the minimum to 10,000 searches for these niches. We can easily adjust the KD and Volume to your preference. Just ask.
Long Tail, High Intent
We can suggest long tail keywords that have good user intent. These tend to result in lower organic traffic, but as we all know it’s not about having the most traffic. It’s better to have the best traffic!
Can you include images?
Yes. We source images from your own website as well as from free and paid stock libraries.
We source images from non-competitor industry experts and give a no-follow link in the attribution. We don’t have a process in place to seek permissions.
We source screenshots/images from your social media channels and eCommerce store review sections to include as social proof.
Do you have content examples?
Can I get a trial article?
Yes. You can order a single piece of content. We don’t offer a free trial.
Can I get a discount?
Yes. When we have worked together on 100+ articles we are happy to discuss reduced rates that support your business.
Would only one writer work on our articles who could learn our voice, or would it be a different writer for each article?
We think that having 2 or 3 writers on your project is the best balance. Those 2 or 3 writers will naturally gravitate towards your topic, and they’ll keep picking up your article work. If one writer has uni exams, then the other two are still writing.
You are welcome to provide us with a voice/branding guide. We include additional information into each brief for our writers.
What is your turnaround time?
When you order a batch of articles this is approximately what happens in terms of timing.
Day 1 – Keywords agreed. Invoice sent.
Day 2 – Invoice paid. Ticket creation commences.
Day 3 – Tickets all pushed into our queue. Writers notified.
Day 4 – Writers start to pick up the article tasks.
Day 7 – First article is submitted for Editorial review.
Day 10 – Editors finish proofreading, sub-editing, SEO checks, quality control on first article.
Day 14 – First article is scheduled into your CMS.
Day 15 – Second article is scheduled into your CMS.
Day 16 – Third article is scheduled … etc.
We schedule to whatever cadence you prefer. So, we can schedule weekly, monthly etc. But everything is essentially loaded into your CMS as it is completed. We can either set to publish or draft. Your choice.
Do you offer a review or approval process? Are we able to request edits if necessary?
Yes, we accept up to 2 revisions to the articles of no more than 20% of the total word count.
Can you publish on my website?
Yes, this is included in the price. We hand-publish on most modern CMS systems including WordPress, Hubspot, Shopify and Joomla. Have something different? If it’s relatively straightforward then it’s likely yes.
What is the by-line in the Author Profile?
We publish anonymously for our clients. The Author Profile is either your admin/own/founder profile, one of your staff writers, or a salesperson in your team. Although we have niche experts in our team, we don’t publish their names or bios.
What are the payment terms?
We will invoice you before work starts. Payment terms are 7 days.
Payment is 100% upfront for orders under $3,000 and 50% payment upfront for orders above $3,000 (with remaining 50% due on completion).
Once we’ve received your payment we will commence work on your articles.
How can I pay?
You can pay via credit/debit card (1.75% processing fee) or by direct bank transfer (minimal to zero fees).
How do I order?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form in our website. One of our Account Managers will be in touch to offer keyword suggestions.
