Women holding money


In 2020, I became a freelance copywriter.

I spent 3 months learning copywriting (the basics).

Then, grew my freelance copywriting business VERY FAST.

I gained over 50 paying clients within 3 months

Secured 2 freelance contract positions with companies within my first year…

And have written copy for hundreds of freelance clients over the last 3 years.


I started WITHOUT any experience, portfolio or writing skills.

You can too.

If you’re interested in becoming a freelance copywriter, this free freelance copywriting course will show you exactly how.

I’ll cover everything you need to get started down the right path.


What freelance copywriting is, what a freelance copywriter does, how much you can expect to earn in 2024 (and beyond), how to price your freelance copywriting fees and a quick 5-step blueprint to go from complete beginner to securing high-paying freelance copywriting clients within a few short months.


What is Copywriting?


If you search online, you’ll find a bunch of contradictory answers.

Don’t be fooled.

Copywriting is nothing more than salesmanship in print.

Instead of traditional sales, you are selling primarily online through the words you write.

This has a BIG advantage over face-to-face selling.


Copywriting is salesmanship multiplied.


You are able to sell to 10x more people, at the same time, than you would with traditional sales.

The goal of copywriting is to write in a persuasive and engaging way that motivates your readers to take a specific action (usually to purchase a product or opt-in to an email list).


There are TONS of mediums to write for.


  • Google Ads
  • Social media posts
  • Blog posts
  • YouTube video scripts
  • Direct mail pieces
  • Website copy
  • And a ho’ bunch more


What is Freelance Copywriting? How is it Different from Traditional Copywriting?


Copywriting is copywriting is copywriting.

The main difference between freelance copywriting vs traditional copywriting is that with traditional copywriting you are essentially an employee.

You work for one company in a traditional 9-5 styled position.

On the other toe…

With freelance copywriting, you are your own boss.

It’s a business.

You are running a copywriting business and it’s up to you to find clients to write for.

Freelance copywriting comes with more responsibilities and “risk” than a typical 9-5 copywriting position.

However, with greater risk, comes greater reward, including:

Man climbing steps to success

1. You can work from anywhere

The beach, your couch, in an RV while traveling the world.

You can write from ANYWHERE you fancy.

2. You have TOTAL freedom

You are your own boss.

You set your own hours.

You choose WHO you want to work with.

You choose what topics you write about.

Only freelancing allows you this much freedom.

3 You can earn 6 figures (or more)

Unlike traditional copywriting, there really is no limit to your earning potential.

The only limit is how many clients you can get, your prices and how many projects you can complete each year.

4. YOU can become a freelance copywriter TODAY

You don’t need to go to college…

You don’t need “2 years of experience” just to get your foot in the door…

You don’t need to climb greasy corporate ladders…

Anyone can become a successful freelance copywriter.

You just have to be willing to put in the work and constantly improve your copywriting skills.


Is Freelance Copywriting Still a Good Career Despite AI?

Despite all the fear-mongering news surrounding AI and ChatGPT…

Copywriting is still a FANTASTIC career to jump into. 

The good news…

Robots will NEVER replace good copywriters.

Copywriting is salesmanship at its core.

And salesmanship requires communicating to your audience on a personal level. It requires empathy, personality and a deep understanding of human psychology. Robots will never beat true copywriters in the selling arena. If you constantly improve your selling/copywriting skills, you have nothing to worry about.

More good news…

Copywriting will also ALWAYS be in demand (even a thousand years in the future, if humans still exist).


Because copywriting is the fuel to business growth.

Companies will always need help converting more customers, selling more products and growing their business.

If you can help them achieve this, then you will ALWAYS be in demand and earn hefty paychecks.


What Do Freelance Copywriters Do?


There are two main sides to running a freelance copywriting business.

  1. The writing side
  2. The business side

The business side comes first.

It’s much more important to your success.

You’ll be spending your time prospecting and generating leads (getting clients), pricing your copywriting rates, maintaining relationships with clients, doing all the accounting stuff (taxes, keeping track of your earnings, invoices, etc.) and much more.

For the writing side…

After you have clients to write for, this is what your day will look like…

The 3 main phases of copywriting:

    1. Research

      This is the most important phase of writing copy.

      Spend the majority of your time on this phase.

      Good copy is assembled, not written. Everything you need to write effective copy already exists. Your job is to find it through research. You’ll spend a lot of time researching your client’s brand, competition, product and target audience (most important). To learn all about copywriting research, see this detailed guide: "Your Ultimate Guide to Copywriting Research (Step-by-Step Process + 5 Best Techniques)"

        2. Writing

          After you do enough research, you’ll be ready to write.

          You’ll need to write attention-grabbing headlines, interesting body copy and persuasive call to actions (ctas) to motivate readers to buy from you (or whatever your client’s main objective is). To learn all about how to write persuasive copy, see this detailed guide.


          Freelance copywriters can write for a bunch of different platforms like social media content, blog posts, landing pages, ecommerce product descriptions, social media advertisements and so on.

          To learn more about the types of copywriting services to offer, see this blog post.

            3. Editing

              Editing is the last main phase of copywriting. You’ll want to edit your copy several times (I usually edit at least 10 times per project).

              The goal is to write the most persuasive message, using the least number of words.

              You want to chisel your writing into a clear, concise and easy-to-read sales machine.


              How Much Dough Can You Realistically Make as a Freelance Copywriter?


              According to Zip Recruiter…

              In 2024, freelance copywriters earn around $45 per hour ($90,000 per year).


              Freelance copywriting salaries you see online are very misleading.

              How come?

              As a freelance copywriter, it’s 100% on you how much you earn.

              There are freelance copywriters earning $1,000,000 each year…. $100,000…. and… less than $1,000.

              If you want to get into freelance copywriting, it’s really important to understand that you are a business owner.

              As a business owner, there’s really no limit to how much money you can make.

              The only limit is your own goals, determination, and marketing, salesmanship and copywriting skills.

              If you become a wizard at marketing yourself, selling your copywriting services and getting impressive results for clients, you can get paid like royalty.

              Freelance copywriters can make a lot more money than traditional copywriters (working as an employee).

              Never limit yourself to averages.

              You CAN earn as much as you desire…. IF you put in the work and become a master at this life-changing skill.

              How much do freelance copywriters charge?

              To learn all about how to price your copywriting fees, see this detailed guide: "The Ultimate Guide to Freelance Copywriting Rates in 2024 (How Much Should YOU Charge?)"
