Copywriting survey 2017 – have your say

We’re running our second annual copywriting survey, and we want to hear your views on our changing profession.

By completing this survey you’ll be helping us capture a snapshot of copywriting as a career and craft.

The results of our survey can help you:

  • Gain perspective on your place in the industry
  • Compare your rate / salary
  • Learn more about your peers and their work
  • Identify opportunities for career development / self-improvement

Please take the survey now.

It takes less than 8 minutes to complete (we checked) and by taking part you can make sure that your voice joins the chorus of copywriters. 

Your responses are completely anonymous. We don’t even ask for an email address. So please give honest answers about your experience of copywriting today.

The results will be published in early 2017.

The survey is for all copywriters. 

You might work full-time for an ad agency. Or you might freelance in your spare time. You might write blog posts, corporate communications, adverts or tweets. If you call yourself a copywriter, we want to hear from you. Whatever your level of experience or qualifications, we want to hear from you

Just completed the survey, and looking forward to seeing the results – it’s always useful to know more about the shape of the sector. One thing: you ask what our main problem with briefs is, but obtaining and shaping a brief is surely an essential part of our job. So if my brief is poor, it’s probably my fault. (Though there are clients who’ll confound me on this, I do admit!)

Great to think that PCN might respond directly to writers’ feedback and offer subsequent advice or services.

Interesting survey. Aside from clearer briefs, faster payment and more respect for our craft, I’d really like a steadier flow of work without the peaks and troughs, feast and famine! Impossible I know, but there you go.
