Copywriting - how to find work

Once you have decided that your future lies in copywriting the best ways to find work are described in our marketing section. By setting up an identity for yourself with a portfolio or online presence then you can start approaching potential clients and flexing your networking muscles by attending relevant business functions.

The internet, as well as providing you a place to market yourself, is a great place for researching potential clients and networking with companies that may provide work for you such as PR and Marketing agencies.

There are also many websites that allow you to bid for work and some of these are detailed in our resources section. We believe that the effort expended in trying to win work from these sites does not always make it a good payer and because of the amount of bidders it is sometimes hard to get heard amongst the crowd. Our advice would be to have a good web site that outlines your portfolio, or indeed join Freelance Alliance, and point the job poster to your online portfolio.  Some bidding sites can offer examples of poor work, including spelling mistakes, that we recommend visiting them simply to boost your own self confidence!
