How do I compare to the average UK copywriter in 2018?

in Musings

Every year ProCopywriters, the alliance of commercial writers, conducts a survey of copywriters. The results for 2018 have just been published.

I always enjoy completing the survey because it’s a useful opportunity to reflect on my work. I always find the results a really interesting read because I get so much information I can’t get anywhere else.

In many respects, I’m a pretty typical copywriter. For example:

  • I’m female
  • I did my degree in English
  • I tend to like charging a per project fee
  • 2017 was a good year for me and I’m optimistic about the prospects for 2018.

In other ways, I’m different:

  • I’m older than the average copywriter
  • I’ve got more experience than the average copywriter
  • I charge more than the average copywriter.

If you’d like to see the results for yourself, here’s a link to the report.
