Frequently asked questions
Who can join ProCopywriters?
Membership is open to all aspiring and professional writers who are in the UK, or who serve the UK market.
How do I become a member?
Join ProCopywriters here. We offer two membership levels, Basic and Pro.
- Basic is £5 (inc VAT) per month and gives you a directory listing and access to our forum – but your profile will be less visible than Pro members (we recommend the Pro membership for any copywriter who is looking for work).
- Pro costs £75 (inc VAT) per year. It gives you all the same benefits as basic membership, plus priority listing in our directory, an integrated portfolio on your listing where you can upload images and samples of your work, a link to your own website and exclusive offers and discounts – including a £115 discount on your ticket to our copywriting conference.
How do I submit a blog post?
Via your dashboard (which is only available to members). But before you do, make sure you read our blogging guidelines. They should answer any questions you have about what we’re after, and the blog submission process.
Our site runs on WordPress, so if you’re familiar with that platform, you should find it easy to send us your piece.
We only publish posts that meet our requirements for length, topic and quality.
Can I republish a post from my blog?
Yes, as long as it meets our requirements for length, topic and quality. We may ask you to add more detail to it, or edit it down.
If you submit a republished post, include a link at the end that says something like, ‘This post was originally published at Cracking Copywriting‘.
How do I update my profile?
Visit your dashboard and click the link there to edit your profile.
How do I add portfolio items to my profile?
Only Pro members can add portfolio items. Visit your dashboard, click the link and follow the on-screen instructions.
How do I link to my website?
Only Pro members can link to their own websites. Once you upgrade to Pro, this field will be available in your profile.
How do I cancel my membership?
If you want to downgrade from Pro to Basic, you’ll find a link on your dashboard to do this. Please note that we cannot make refunds, or part refunds, for any payments already made.
If you want to delete your profile altogether, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to take care of this for you.
Can I promote my job opportunity/event on your site?
Yes, but please note this is a paid service. Contact us for more details.
Can you recommend a copywriter for my project?
We can’t recommend individual copywriters, but if you search our directory you should find someone suitable for your needs.
