The Perfect Home Based Business: Freelance Copywriting

by Nick Usborne


There are a number of different ways to make some extra money from home.


Based on what you see on numerous web sites, you can earn money by stuffing envelopes, creating web sites or joining a multi level marketing program.


And perhaps some people do make some money that way. But after over twenty years as a freelance copywriter, I can't imagine a better way to work from home and earn a decent income.


Here are my top 4 reasons why I think freelance copywriting is the perfect home based business...


1. It costs you almost nothing to get started


If you are reading this, you already have a computer and an internet connection.


And that's pretty much all you need. Maybe some sheets of paper and envelopes from time to time.


With freelance copywriting you can start earning right away and you don't need to invest in any additional software or equipment. Your brain and a keyboard are all you need.


If you have some background in commercial writing or copywriting, you really can get started right away. If not, you might want to invest in a good copywriting course to give you the skills and knowledge to do great work.


2. You can adapt your schedule to your circumstances


Freelance copywriting is something you can do full-time or part-time.


It is open to everyone, whether you are single and have all the time in the world, or have children and can only work for two or three hours after they go to bed, or while they are at school.


Your age doesn't matter, however young or old you are.


Where you live doesn't matter, whether you're in a big city or out in the country somewhere.


3. You can get started without giving up your day job


You don't have to give up your job to get started. Plenty of professional commercial writers earn their salary and then do a little 'moonlighting' on the side. But even if you are employed in an unrelated profession, you can still do some writing when you're not at work.


4. A good economy or a bad economy. They are both good for freelance copywriters


When the economy is roaring, there is always plenty of work for good freelance copywriters. Companies have more writing work than they can handle with their own staff.


But here is the magical part: even when the economy goes bad, and companies are laying off employees by the thousands, it's still a good time for freelance copywriters. The more employees that companies let go, the more dependant they become on outsourcing their writing needs to freelancers.


When times are bad, this is a wonderful position to be in. Nobody can fire you, and there is always some work out there.


Concluding thoughts


If there is a better way to work from home and make good money, I haven't come across it. Even if you don't have any commercial writing experience right now, you can still learn and still start earning some extra money.
