Interestingly, it is not necessarily the best copywriters who earn the most. It is the good copywriters who really know how to market their services well. Freelance copywriters can earn from $30,000 to $300,000 a year and over. The figure you earn will depend on a number of factors, including:
• How much experience do you have?
• How good are you ate marketing your services?
• What rates do you charge?
One essential resource when trying to estimate how much you should be earning each year, and how much you should charge per hour or per job is Chris Marlow's 2005 Freelance Copywriter Fee & Compensation Survey.
