Copywriters: What are your biggest career challenges?

Friday, August 9th, 2013

I’ve been talking to our customers a lot lately, trying to learn more about their specific use cases – what type of writer are they? And how do they use their online writing portfolios?

Something that’s struck me is just how many COPYWRITERS are using Writer’s Residence because it’s a handy way for them to distribute their writing portfolios to potential clients and job opportunities.

Given that Writer’s Residence is all about helping writers market themselves, I’d like to do more for the copywriters among us, be that by improving the site to better serve the needs of copywriters, or by writing useful articles about copywriting here on the blog.

To that end, I’d like to hear from the copywriters out there: what are your biggest career challenges? What boggles you when it comes to marketing your work? How are you using your websites in your career, and do you wonder if you could be using it more productively? Are there things you wish you could do to market yourself that you’re not doing because you don’t know how?

Let me know… and non-copywriting writers should feel free to chime in, too. Most of these questions apply to us all!
