How to Set Copywriting Rates as a Frelancer

 




If you are employed as a copywriter, you can make a small amount or large amount of money depending on your expertise and how you sell yourself.  The average writer earns roughly around $50,000 including bonuses, according to Glassdoor.

As far as copywriting rates go when you are a freelancer, this is a hard question to answer.  Some people charge on a per project basis while others charged on a per hour basis. 

If you were to charge for writing a website home page, this often would bring in between $300 and $400 for you. Copywriting is a very good profession as about two out of every five people earned somewhere between $50,000 and $100,000 a year in gross income. You could find that you are grossly undercharging for your services and this could provide an immediate boost to your income without having to do any more work.





The figures that were quoted here were based upon the median of copywriters surveyed so if you have specific knowledge and experience that others do not and this can be quantified, you could charge a higher price than what the market could bear.  This would allow you to have a greater gross income. Taking the time to learn more by your field and develop experience within a particular niche can give you a competitive attitude which would allow you to charge more for your services.

Hopefully this article on copywriting writing rates has given you some knowledge on what kind of rates you could charge.  If you want more information on particular activities that you currently engaged in, look up the survey which is listed under the link provided above. 

Keep in mind that all of the rates that were listed in here were the median rates.  This is the critical point that is being re-emphasized in this paragraph because it should give you an idea of what you could potentially charge.  Rates within markets can always change so you must make sure that you're keeping up with what others are charging so that you make sure you are not shortchanging your self.  The rate that you charge for services is contingent upon what the market is willing to pay as well as how well you sell yourself.

How To Get People To Know That Your Book Is Out There

Ok so you have been through the writing process, where you have wrote that perfect novel, and rewrote it again and again until it's perfect.  Then you found either a Publisher or Agent to represent you.  Your book has been through the editing stage, cover art finalized, and a Published Date assigned, now what?  Is the job done?  Have you did all you needed to do to make this book a success?  Nope, you have only begun.  Now you have to market that book, get  it into book stores, let people know it is available.  First off you need to find out from your Publisher or Agent where you book will be available at, who is doing reviews and any promoting they plan on doing.  Once you have the answers to these questions you now know where to start.  A review is the first step to getting your book known.  You can begin requesting reviews as soon as the Publisher has a final proof copy available.  Most review sites can be found in the Search Engines by simply typing the Genre of your bo

How To Stay Fit While Writing

Day after day, writers tend to sit for hours writing that novel or story, and over time, this can become a potential problem. Their metabolism may slow down and the pounds can inch up. Statistics show all kinds of health problems associated with obesity. If you’re an author, you are aware how your image plays a role in promoting your books.  You are asked to speak or lecture at a gathering, or promote your books doing book tours and signings.  Or even better yet, you’re asked to go on a TV show, like Oprah!  That is not the time to think about losing weight! You have to start now, before that book goes out on the shelves, so when you go on that stage or in front of the television, you’re looking and feeling good. How can you tell if you’re obese?  Here are a few ways to tell – you pinch the area around your waist and it’s two inches thick, you lie down and can’t feel the top of your breastbone, your clothes don’t fit you, you avoid having your picture taken, you keep
