Our Solution

Copywriters looking for work could opt to turn freelance, reaping benefits like flexible hours and work from home or garden offices. That's the opinion of writer Reno Charlton, who hailed the lifestyle in an article for Huffingtonpost.co.uk. She explained that the evolution of technology has opened up many doors for writers; namely that they can be very flexible in their working approach. "The power of the internet and the lightening speeds at which we can now research and communicate means that more and more people can enjoy the benefits of writing from home for clients all around the world," she said, What's more, given the state of the world's economy and job market, taking control of the future by turning freelance is proving an attractive option. What's more, setting up a copywriting business doesn't have to cost the earth, Charlton added. As long as writers have space to work, be it in their back room or out in their garden, a computer and an internet connection they can rely on, they are set. Charlton went on to say: "When you start working from home as a freelance writer, you can not only build a lucrative career with minimal or even no upfront investment, but you also get to escape the 9-5 rat race, as you will be your own boss, you can schedule your work in around your other commitments..." Digitaljournal.com noted that some 4.14 million Brits have already set up their own business, be it within freelancing or another area, so Charlton's enthusiasm for a move into the lifestyle may not be surprising. A freelance writer for over eight years, Charlton concluded by saying that talented writers can easily "fast track their career" within the freelance world with a bit of effort.
