Average day rate for copywriting.
I quote a day rate (currently £500) on my Pricing page as a guide, but my preference is to provide a flat project fee.
Good quality writing is hugely valuable. Pay your copywriter what they’re worth.
Average annual earnings for freelance copywriters.
The typical freelance copywriter earns a decent salary but isn’t swimming in cash.
Preferred pricing models.
Most copywriters prefer flat project fees. This is also my preferred pricing model. Learn more about pricing models

Gender pay gap for copywriting.
This is the reported gender pay gap for freelance copywriters. Not very cool, especially as most of the best copywriters I know are women, though the gap is narrowing at last.
