Making Money as a Copywriter
Compared to other work-from-home jobs out there, you can make money fairly quickly as a freelance copywriter.
In fact, you can make more as a copywriter than many other types of freelance writers.
The big difference is the need for copywriters is all about the client making money. Often it is LOTS of money. As in millions.
When they have strategic copy that works to create more sales, they make more money. Simple as that. Entrepreneurs and businesses need copywriters!
And they will pay.
For me, I started online around 2004. Nobody knew who I was. But with a very basic beginning in copywriting, I was able to hit multiple six figures in my first year.
And I did it entirely from my home on wheels too. It really IS a perfect job for working from home online, no matter where you are.
As for the money…
I’m not saying everyone can do what I did that quickly. I’m probably unusual in that.
But it is certainly possible to get to a very healthy five figures within the first year.
Take a look at what Salary.com shows for national average earnings as a copywriter:
And that’s just an average. Fact is, working in an agency as an employee actually pays LESS than working as a freelance copywriter.
Many agencies require a college degree.
They will have tightly constrained salary limitations regarding how much you make and when you can get a raise.
And you’re still under the thumb of the powers that be. Boo!
Why would you do that when you can be your own boss instead?

I’m very interested in working from home and am particularly interested in your subject here.
I have however, as I’m sure you must have as well, found a lot of scams going on in this regard so at the outset may I just say scams, get rich quick schemes etc, in fact anything “fake “ I have no interest in and don’t have the time to waste on them.
That being said I’m sure you don’t come into that category and I’ll therefore be very interested.
Hi MaryEllen. Thanks for your comment. I can totally understand your caution when it comes to online products. It’s good to be careful and do your homework.
As you can see here, I have many students and clients who enthusiastically endorse their experience in working with me. It’s an honor to be part of their journey. I think you’ll also see, I make no promises that everybody and anybody can make a lot of money fast. Yes you absolutely can do extremely well with copywriting if you’re willing to learn, and put in the effort by taking consistent action.
Sometimes people invest in trainings for the “quick fix” of feeling better for a while, because they think they are taking action. But then when they realize they actually have to keep going by learning the skills, honing their craft, and becoming “visible” to their potential clients, they fall by the wayside. It’s just the nature of people in general…the good ol’ 80/20 rule in action. The same could be said of people who take on huge student loans, spend years in college, and then never do anything more with their education. There are no guarantees there either.
The other aspect of all of this is mindset…sometimes people derail and sabotage themselves without even realizing it. So developing a strong success mindset is also part of the creating success for yourself–that’s why I start all my programs with mindset, bookended with Spirituality. It makes what I teach so much more powerful than just headlines and bullet points!
So thanks for sharing your thoughts. I appreciate it. I hope you’ll continue to check in about how you’re doing. I’m going to be doing some free trainings on my Facebook page, so be sure and keep an eye out for those as well!
Sending love and light from Tucson!
I really like your candid remarks as you tell it like it is straight up and to the point. I would love to take your program but financially I am restricted to very limited resources at present. The fee is American funds which makes it even more unattainable for this senior. Respect and admiration to you for what you have achieved. Sincerely yours,Donald H. Auld.
Hi Don, thanks for your note. I appreciate it! I hope you’ll continue to follow along with my messages on FB lives, and that they help or inspire you in some way. All the best to you!
