Copywriter gets angry

9 replies
A copywriter submitted an ad to a retailer and waited for a response. Then he went a little crazy. (NSFW)

    That's funny. Well I say good for him. His ad may not have been all that compelling but it wasn't nice of the company to solicit entries and not at least respond.

      I understand the copywriter's frustration... a thank-you-for-the-submission letter is appropriate.

      That said, the fact is when you submit an ad under those circumstances, you have no leverage. Not a good position for a freelance copywriter to be in... or any professional for that matter.

    A thank you response would have been appropriate considering the amount of work and time people invested on it and to think it's just for a chance to land an interview. On the flip side, people should stay away from contests like this. It's really difficult to expect something good.
