Telecommuting is gaining popularity. For many this is not just a part-time job and main source of income. And although copywriting can be attributed to popular online professions that are relevant to copywriters skeptical.
At first glance, the writing is simple and accessible to all profession. However, it has its drawbacks. The main one is not to get money for their work. Primarily for beginners.
Some customers, unwilling to pay money for texts, go to the trick. They offer newcomers to fulfill a small test task, ostensibly to check the literacy of the contractor. Or asked to do a difficult job with the keys, then tell the copywriter that they have gained enough performers and you see the place, will definitely contact him.
The second problem is competition. Copywriters on the stock exchanges a lot and everyone wants to be noticed by the customers. There is a solution, you can put a low price, but to raise it will not be easy. Customers will not want to pay more for the same work that I could get cheap.
There are other risks. For example, there are customers who give separate orders (1 text), but the majority are offered to perform a large amount of work. Extremely frustrating if after a month of work order will not be accepted or, worse, not paid.
Those who work on exchanges, is immune from such troubles. However there you may have to look for a job. In addition, those wishing to pick up orders will be many, will have to compete. And most worryingly, there’s no clear timetable, no boss, so if you do not know how to discipline myself, to work you will not be easy.
Perhaps if copywriting really would be simple and easily accessible to the profession, the offices would lose their workers. However, the drawbacks of this profession can only be noticed in the process.
