A snapshot of our profession

ProCopywriters Survey 2018

What’s it like to be a copywriter in 2018? We asked 400 copywriters about their work, their earnings and their outlook for the year ahead. Here’s what they had to say.

Our third annual survey of copywriters finds:

  • Average day rate is £342
  • Gender pay gap is 25% (full-time employees only)
  • Only 4% of copywriters think Brexit will be good for their career
  • Only 2% of copywriters want to change careers

Thanks to everyone who completed this survey. Your contribution gives us all a clearer picture of our profession.

Each year, fewer people complete our survey. Next year we’ll try a few new things to reverse this trend and capture a wider pool of commercial writers.
