I’ve Watched Them Do Insane Things

I can’t tell you how many times I just shook my head with frustration during the last week. The reason is something you are already annoyed of: the new European data privacy regulation, short GDPR.

Companies of all sizes made unbelievably stupid moves. I’ve seen them completely stop using email marketing! It seems everybody got into a collective craze that amplified itself the nearer the final date came when GDPR is enforced. That date was May, 25th.

Interview With Freelance Copywriter Eleanor Goold – How To Market Yourself Online

Haris: Hi Eleanor, thanks a lot for agreeing to share your best tips on copywriting and your background. Let’s start with how you got started in copywriting? Please, tell us more about your story.

Eleanor: Thank you for inviting me to take part in your interview series Haris, I really appreciate it.

So, how did I get into copywriting? Good question. I always loved to express myself in writing, but it wasn’t until I had the opportunity to start my own business that I decided to follow my passion and enter the world of copywriting. In the past I had dabbled in other forms of writing and even started my own online magazine before I set up Kreatív Copywriting.

My first real lucky break was being hired ‘out of the blue’ to write email newsletters (hence my love of email) for a big airline.

Interview with Freelance Copywriter Brit McGinnis On Starting Her Copywriting Career

Haris: First of all, thanks a lot for agreeing to share your best tips on copywriting and your background. Let’s start with how you got started in copywriting? Please, tell us more about your story.

Brit: I was a freelance writer and reporter for a few years out of college. It was a great career path, but the lack of overall support for those in the profession worried me. I also saw the state of journalism changing and wanted something with far more control.

Haris: How did you transition to freelance copywriting from the job you had before? What advice would you give to someone in a similar situation?

Brit: The biggest thing I did was give myself a title and a future company name. Having a business of my own forced me to take my business and prospecting efforts seriously. If you can see it, you can do it.

I had to be honest with myself about how much journalism wasn’t working for me as a field. I loved it so much! But I needed to accept the fact that I craved more stability and control over my own pay. So I slowly phased in more copywriting work until it was finally out of my lineup. That’s how I would advise anyone else do it.

Haris: Getting clients is one of the greatest challenges for freelance copywriters. Could you tell us more about how you get clients?

Selling Soap as a Guy

She said: “I’m sick of it. You need to finish
something.” – These are the words my wife said
to me in December of 2016 shortly after our
marriage.

She got tired of me starting something just to
abandon it for something even more promising.
After a while, she had trouble keeping up with
my various endeavors. I would get an idea, start
out a new path, and then get another idea and
follow it. It was confusing to watch.
