    Thanks for your thoughts deposits are definitely an option. Since many readers of this site are new and aspiring copywriters, though, I don t advise them to ask for them. As they have less experience and fewer portfolio samples to prove their skills, asking for a deposit can make the risk factor too high for some clients. I also don t recommend offering discounts on quotes, since it can give the impression that quotes are arbitrary. For example, if a service owner can give me 10% off just for making a payment upfront, I m going to assume that there s much more room for negotiation—or I m going to wonder if the regular rate is inflated by 10%! Either way, it s important to be careful since those aren t really the impressions one wants to give a client.
