Product Description

Product Description

Do you have a passion and flair for writing? Would you like to put this passion and flair to good use?

Freelance copywriting is a service that is always in demand, with businesses around the world always on the lookout for good copywriters to work with. As a freelance copywriter you could find yourself creating all sorts of copy, from website content and articles to press releases, direct mail letters, slogans, press advertisements and more.

Ask yourself these questions:

Do I want to escape the 9-5 rat race and work for myself from the comfort of home?

Do I want to enjoy the chance to earn more money by being in control of the work that I take on and setting my own prices?

Would I be able to put my creative skills to good use by producing high quality copy for a global client base?


If the answer to these questions is 'yes' then freelance copywriting could be the perfect career for you.

I have been working as a successful freelance copywriter for over eight years, having gone from being a receptionist to writing for clients all around the world in less than ten months. Many people have asked me how I broke into this career over the years and have been hugely surprised at how simple the process actually was.

This guide provides you with details of how I became a successful copywriter, enabling you to chart and follow the steps that I took in order to break into this competitive field. Although you will find a number of guides on the market offering advice on how to break into a career in freelance writing, many are based purely on research that has been carried out online. This guide is based on personal experience, which means that you can be confident that the information provided to you really can help you to become a successful freelance copywriter.

More About the Author

Having been brought up on Enid Blyton, my love of children's magic and fantasy was developed at an early age, with my favourite childhood books being The Enchanted Wood series. As I got older, I continued to read my favourite children's books (which I still do) but also became a big fan of horror, particularly works by Stephen King. I believe that both of these legendary authors have helped to influence my writing and shape my career, enabling me to write in two distinct and different genres catering for both imaginative children and older readers who enjoy stories with a twist.

For the past eight years I have been working as a successful freelance copywriter, creating content for a global client base and in a variety of different genres. However, writing fiction for children is something that I love to do - and using words to give children the opportunity to explore new lands and different worlds using their imagination, as I did as a child, is something that I take pride in doing. I also love to create stories for older readers under my pen name of Emily Ho. These are stories that are created to provide thrills and chills, with each tale having a surprise twist at the end. Some are horror and supernatural, others are gritty urban dramas - but all have a dark undertone to them.

In my twenties, I won a short story competition judged by Curtis Brown Literary Agency, which helped me to become even more determined to pursue a career in writing - The Journey Home is now one of the short stories available on Amazon under my pen name of Emily Ho.

In my early thirties, I spent eight weeks on a reality TV show on prime time TV, but the less said about that the better!Since then, I have dedicated my time to creating content for clients, which is how I make my living, and creating books/stories that capture the imagination of kids and older readers, which is my passion!

1.0 out of 5 stars You Get What You Pay For 17 Feb 2013
By InfoJunkie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I would recommend "The Well-Fed Writer" Or Steve Slaunwhite's book, or Bob Bly's books. All those have a lot of experience as a freelance copywriter. And they are filled with more in-depth information. There's far too many "make money at home as a copywriter" books. Phoney 5 star reviews and every time someone posts a negative review for this book, they get attacked by a friend of the author. Pathetic. And the author can't even spell. Look at the subtitle of the book.

In addition the author is a fiction writer and "content" writer, NOT a copywriter. There's a big difference. From the authors page.

Does not help realy. It just explains some things about how to work online but not very useful information. Waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manageable read and helpful information 20 July 2012
By Andrew David - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I am not a big reader of non-fiction so I don't like long drawn out books that have been filled with nonsense just to make them look longer. This short guide (about 40 pages) is ideal if you just want to find out what the author's advice is and then get on with doing what she advises. I read the guide within a couple of hours and have now done as she advised and started to get things moving with some part time writing. I'm looking to get into part time writing to boost my income and as this guide showed me, there is work out there for writers, even those who do not have a formal writing qualification.

4.0 out of 5 stars Work From Home as a Freelance Copywriter 14 May 2012
By Ron Rosewood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is very factual about the steps the writer took to establish herself
in this profession. It is an A-Z handbook on how to qualify and get registered as
a freelancer in the Copywriting industry.If you have writing talent and wish to work,you can succeed. That is the undertone of this how to book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Google Instead 19 Jan 2013
By Zj - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While the book is in no way expensive, the information in this guide is something that can be found just as easily on Google for less. The author spends just as much time plugging services and "copywriting school" as she spends on method. I'm not saying the book wouldn't be helpful to someone looking to have some extra income or a new hobby, but if you really want to write copy as a career, in my opinion you need to look elsewhere.
