So, about a year ago, I decided that I wanted to be a copywriter. I wanted to start out working for an establishment as a junior copywriter, but quickly found out that even the smallest of establishments were looking for something VERY important which, I'll admit, I didn't have at the time: copywriting experience!
I decided to get some copywriting experience on fiverr as a freelancer. The pay was- and still is- CRAP, but the experience was GREAT as I got to work for lots of clients on a variety of projects and I quickly built up a 5 star profile on the site. I created an online portfolio on contently and I decided to try applying again- they still said I needed experience! With over 30 copywriting projects under my belt- including Ashley Madison and Bubandu- I kind of felt I would be good to go in terms of experience.
So my question is... how many copywriting projects do you need to work on before most organizations think that you're worth being employed as their copywriter? You can take a look at my online portfolio here if you want to: https://bobbynchris.contently.com/
I really appreciate your feedback
