The Traditional Way To Get Copywriter Jobs
The traditional way to get copywriter jobs is to scour job advertisements on and offline and contact recruitment companies that offer copywriting jobs.
The trouble with this is two fold:
- If you wait until a copywriter job is advertised, you are applying with the 100 or so other copywriters who also want that job. Your chance of achieving success in your job application is dramatically reduced.
- If you apply through a recruitment company for copywriter jobs, if you are like most copywriters, you only contact at most one or two recruitment companies. There are hundreds or even thousands of copywriter recruitment companies, so by only applying to one or two dramatically reduces your prospects of finding your ideal copywriting job.
Alternative Methods For How To Get A Job As A Copywriter
Most copywriters will only try the methods above, yet there are many different ways to get a job as a copywriter.
If you are serious about getting a new copywriter job, you should give yourself a better chance by doing what most copywriters will not do.
Here are the alternatives.
If you work them.
1. Apply For Copywriting Jobs Before They Are Advertised
Personally, I never waited for a job to be advertised before applying for it.
In a career spanning 15 years, before starting my consultancy business, I applied for four jobs and was offered four positions, all without a recruitment company or a job advertisement being placed.
How and why did I do this?
I knew that the easiest way to win a race was to be in a race of one; a race against nobody else.
So when I wanted a new job, I sought out companies that I liked the look of and then told them I would like to work for them.
The approach is so rarely used it stands out a mile.
In the letter or email approaching the company I would include reasons why I wanted to work for that company, to ensure the application was as personlised as it could be (making it stand out even further).
I then received invitations to interview and subsequently job offers.
If you really want a new copywriter job, whether freelance copywriting or employed (freelance gives you way more freedom), put yourself in a race of one and be the only person applying for the copywriting job before it is even advertised.
There are so many companies that need copywriters there is never a shortage for you to apply to.
Are there certain niche’s that you like to write about? If yes, list them out and then research companies in those niches and start contacting them.
Do you want to work for a digital marketing agency? Look around your local area and find one that you like the sound of from the copy on their website.
Or would you prefer to work for a blue chip company?
Is your copywriting penchant for financial advice, leading you towards an investment company, or legal, leading you to one of the major law firms.
The advice for getting a copywriter job that you are receiving here works, will you apply it or be one of 100 other copywriters applying for jobs only when they are advertised?
2. Become A Freelance Copywriter
Whilst waiting for your ideal copywriter job by applying for jobs following step one above, why not become a freelance copywriter> in the meantime?
If you do, you may discover that you can earn far more money as a freelance copywriter than you can ever earn as an employed one (you can and it is not even hard to do so).
As a freelance copywriter, you can set your own hours, work from anywhere in the world with good wifi and decide on the top level of your income (as opposed to your employer paying you as little as they are able to get away with).
Every business out there needs help with copywriting, yet most do not need to hire a full time copywriter, so they use freelance copywriters to write their blog posts, write detailed articles, brochures and ebooks to grow their email list.
These businesses have a huge demand for freelance copywriters.

My name is Nick Jervis, and I have been marketing service based businesses since 1991, full time through my marketing consultancy and The More Clients Academy since 2003.
Over the last few years, I have been approached by more and more copywriters looking to attract new clients.
With a world so hugely dependent on new content for websites, blogs, email newsletters, etc, it is not that there isn’t enough work to go around, just that like all of the service business owners who I work with, whilst being great at the service that they provide, they didn’t have a system to follow to attract new copywriting clients.
I created this system for them, and now show you the same methods all of my successful copywriting clients use to generate all of the clients that they want and need.
The good news is, these marketing methods do not cost thousands or take months to put in place, far from it.
One of them can be up and running in minutes, is free of charge, and works wonders.
which I mean that at this time it is still less than the charge you will make for one article, so completely within your financial grasp.
