Vocational Copywriting

Jul 30, 2008
Here we will investigate the benefits of occupational copywriting.

Copywriting has a lot to offer as a job. Copywriting pays more than the average job in the United States. The magazine Advertising Age reported that in 2005 the average salary of a copywriter was around $60,000 in the United States with bonuses included. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a slightly smaller figure of around $57,000, but you can expect that number to have increased over the past two years because of inflation.

Copywriting is more versatile than other jobs. You do not need to worry about keeping a set schedule because your focus is on writing good copy, not punching a time card. This allows you to plan your work around your schedule, giving you more flexibility to live your life. Most jobs are not able to do this.

Copywriting offers great work environments as well. Advertising Agencies employ many copywriters and can make for a great place to work. There are usually many other creative people around you whom you can bounce your ideas off of. There is also a higher-level of energy that you can piggyback on to increase your creativity and production. These people will be quite intelligent and creative, which will inspire and challenge you to improve in your field. In order to better fit your personality there are many different kinds of advertising agencies to work for. A smaller agency will produce a close group of people and an intimate atmosphere, while a larger agency will provide more competition and energy. As depicted here, there is a great deal of adaptability inherent within the work environment for copywriters.

Copywriting never gets boring because your goal is to produce well-made copy, which can be challenging. Advertising Agencies often give you many different kinds of clients with many different kinds of demands, creating an ever-changing project list. This variety will make everyday unique and work will never be "just another day at the office."

No matter how you look at it, copywriting has many benefits. You will make a very good income with the average being around $60,000. On top of that, if you work hard and produce good copy, you can establish yourself as a master copywriter and make much more money than that. Quite often your work environment will be teeming with creative energy and far more adaptable to your life than most other occupations.
