Now here are my questions:
Can you earn more working as a fully independent copywriter or as a freelance copywriter?How and where you can find clients, if you choose the independent way? We all know that as a freelance copywriter you use freelance website to get in contact with potential clients. What are the costs for both options? If you run your website/blog compared to freelance fees. What about the risks? How do you protect your work and ensure payment as an independent copywriter?
I've heard it for so many times that freelance zone is somewhere you go when you care more about price than the quality itself. Is it true? In addition, I have this feeling or maybe the wrong kind of prejudice that an independent contractor status or an opportunity to run the agency/company specialized in copywriting services is a privilege reserved for US/UK/AUS/CAN writers. Prove me right or wrong. I have a colleague copywriter from Portugal, who runs an independent agency. Yet, his main activity is focused on translations. He gets a lot of orders involving Portuguese/English translations. So, this is more about translation than copywriting.
I've met quite a few warriors/copywriters who match my independent description. So, I would like to hear from them. At the same time, all other warriors who provide different type of services as both independent and freelance workers are also encouraged to share their experiences and thoughts.
Thanks in advance.
