Copywriters are the divas of the writing world, and it’s not pretty.
(If you’re a new writer, copywriters write to sell — they’re persuaders.)
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been dealing with outraged clients of copywriters who’ve not only trimmed their client lists, but are also NOT taking on new clients.
I can’t really blame them. I have all the clients I can handle too.
The global financial crisis in 2008 ensured that companies speculated on the Web. They had to cut costs and maintain their margins. The Web worked for them, so fast forward a few years, many companies (and publications) now look on the Web as integral to their business.
This means that there’s more than enough work for experienced copywriters, and NEW copywriters are welcome too. If you know how to sell with words, you’ve got it made.
It’s never been easier to set up a copywriting business than it is today. Consider it, if you’re looking for clients who are eager to work with you.
The work’s out there. However, I know that if you’re a new writer, you’re not flush. I’ve had many requests for an offering on my 7 Days copywriting program, so it’s available for a limited time.
