How We Work At QuickSilver CopyWriters




Discovering Your Story:

  • We want to find your voice. Capture your passion. And uncover that story waiting to be told.

  • Open discussion is essential, so we'll ask questions, ask a few more, and ask more still.

  • We value every tidbit of information you can contribute; even those that may appear insignificant. Seemingly unrelated morsels expertly blended can add just the right spice to the mix.

  • Materials needed:  

    • Current Brochures and Newsletter.

    • Ad or Article Copy.

    • Copies of Speeches or Presentations.

    • Press Releases.

    • Market Plans and Research.

    • Competitors' Brochures and Ads.

    • Testimonials and Customer Letters.

    • Instruction manuals. 

    Don't worry about organizing your materials--that's part of the fun!


Our Process:

  • Meet in person, by phone or email. (We never charge for initial evaluation.)

  • Submit a bid within 48 hours of first meeting. Upon approval, supply a detailed letter of agreement.

  • Graciously accept 50% up-front payment.

  • Analyze gathered data: all notes taken during meeting, taped interviews (if authorized), background information provided, etc.

  • Energized from unearthing your story (and lots of coffee), glue ourselves to the keyboard and write until our fingers ache.

  • Present first draft for revision (two revisions included; any extras charged hourly).

  • Equipped with your suggestions, return to computer and rework copy (more coffee).

  • Upon final approval, invoice outstanding amount and request payment within 15 days.

  • An interest rate of 2% a month will be added to any unpaid balance.


  • We charge by the project or by the hour.

  • Project pricing includes: a determined number of meetings, research, brainstorming, necessary interviews, and of course, the writing (with above mentioned revisions).

  • Not included: out-of-pocket expenses, out-of-area travel, elements considered design in nature (i.e., layout or special formatting), or accelerated delivery.

  • If project is cancelled for any reason, completed work will be billed at hourly rate.

  • We'll be happy to do a rush job (for a 50% surcharge).

  • Delivery methods (unless otherwise specified): by email (MS Word attachment) or printed copy sent by U.S. mail.

  • We retain the right to use the copy as promotional material (or you can pay the 100% premium for exclusivity.)

  • Your copyright priviliges to the completed work begin as soon as your account is paid in full.

Our Promise:

  • We don't require handholding or prodding to keep on task. (Kibitzing optional.)

  • While we will do everything in our power to meet your expections, we cannot predict delays beyond our control. We may ask for your patience under certain circumstances.

  • We maintain a professional attitude. Our job is to make your job easier.

  • Remember our motto:  On Time. On Target. On Budget.

  • And we'll be happy to make room on our site for your testimonial about what a joy we were to work with!
