Great episode, just on the topic I had in mind yesterday ! Thank you so much for sharing your tips and advice with us. Your podcast is really interesting, useful and nice. Keep going.
Thanks Jeanne and sorry we missed your comment!
Great pod! Thanks for sharing these tips.
It’s good that you only have to work 1-2 hours a day of client work. I’d love to get to that point in my business.
Do you have other income streams or support from elsewhere or is 1-2 hours a day enough to pay the bills? What sort of rough hourly rate are you commanding? Must be in the $200+ range? Sorry for being nosey but really interested in the economics of what makes a financially successful copywriter!
Thanks for the jump chart recommendation, will give it a try.
Hey Joe, that’s these days. When I started out I was doing around 30 hours a week of client work, in years 2 -5 about 40 hours.
The only reason I’m able to work less now on clients is I have a lot of courses, books etc to supplement my income.
This article will help re rates – AU though https://www.katetooncopywriter.com.au/copywriting-rates-how-much-should-you-charge/
I agree with Kate. In the beginning, it was ALL client work. I’d say I’d usually have 50-60% billable time (to clients) and the rest of was admin and marketing.
Thanks for listening!
