Becoming A Well-Paid Freelance Copywriter In A Few Simple Steps


Sometimes the hardest part can be just starting something. Once you have that foundation, you are able to keep going and use your momentum and motivation from small wins to grow and succeed even more. But how do you get to that point? This article will explain how to do that in a few steps that are simple to follow.

Steps to getting a well-paid freelance writing career

Think about this: everything that you do has potential to be bigger than you realize.

As long as you do the work, it’s up to you to use every experience you have. Even small projects can add tremendous value to your skill set and your portfolio. All the big name copywriters you hear about online have gotten where they are because they put themselves out on the web, and talked about what they were doing. You just need to do things that are worth talking about, to blog about your wins and goal achieving. This will translate into more clients from your niche finding you.

Who is your ideal client?

Nail down the answer to that question early on, so that you always have something to center your decisions. If you already know who you want to be working with, then it will make any future dilemma much easier to solve. You would simply think of what that ideal client would want, and keeping them happy will keep your career flourishing.

Another point that will help you once you get your first few clients, is to copy marketing techniques that work. If you wrote a piece for a hairdresser, for example, that got their salon a lot of new clients for cutting hair, how can you replicate those results? If it was the blog post you shared, or a well-written ad, try to use that to find more people who want you to write copy for them.

Here are a few more tips:

  • Create and put into practice a new technique, and blog about the results. Even if you failed in the experiment, share your story because people will relate to it

  • Keep your portfolio updated with each project you complete, so new clients will see your most recent work up front

  • Remember that in copywriting as a freelancer, you are both the product and the marketer of the product so you need other skills than just writing
