Can I sell copywriting jobs?

Business and consumer reporter Annette McAlpine looks at how copywriting gigs have become a popular and lucrative way to make money for business owners.

“Copywriting is often considered a last resort for some copywriters, especially those working in the online sector.”

However, the internet has allowed for copywriters to reach a wider audience with their content, which is why the digital market is booming,” Ms McAlpines co-author of the new book, Copywriting Jobs for the Jobless: The Business of Copywriting, said.

In an online industry where a new copywriter can quickly reach millions of potential customers, many businesses have begun to focus on a copywriting position that may be considered a temporary position but will eventually pay well.

A recent survey of copywriters found the average income for a copywriter was $1,400 to $3,000 a year.

But copywriters’ incomes can also vary significantly.

The average salary for a professional copywriter in Australia is $1.5 million, according to data compiled by Ipsos.

Another survey by the Association of Copywriters found that in 2016-17, the average salary paid to a copyeditor in Australia was $2.1 million, while the average paid to copywriters in the United States was $3.5million.

And for most of Australia’s history, a copywrite was not a permanent job.

It was a temporary occupation that lasted a few months before being replaced by a permanent one.

At the height of the printing and publishing boom in the 19th century, for instance, copywriters earned a monthly wage of about $150.

Writer for LinkedIn loses $5,000 job over $50K salary in 2016

Copywriter job postings on LinkedIn for August 2016 showed a $50,000 salary and a “Senior Copywriter” title. 

However, the job listing said that the salary would be reduced to $5K if the company chose to hire a junior copywriter for $20,000. 

In the same posting, the LinkedIn job posting for “Senior Writer” stated that the position would be filled at a salary of $10,000 with a two-year term. 

A LinkedIn spokesperson told Quartz that this was a typo. 

The senior copywriter title is used to describe a copywriter who has been with the company for less than two years, while the junior copywriting title is for a copywriting role that has been vacant for more than two months. 

According to LinkedIn, the salary and position descriptions were corrected to reflect that the job was a junior job. 

“The senior and junior roles are the same,” the spokesperson said.
