How to Find Copywriting Jobs

Updated on July 22, 2012

Copywriting jobs are often some of the better-paying freelance writing jobs, but they are often tougher to get than typical Web content jobs. To find Copywriting jobs, there are a few places to look that can yield profitable results.

Bidding Job Sites

Use a freelance bidding site to find copywriting jobs of all sizes. Sites like Elance, vWorker, Odesk and Guru are all sites that allow anyone to sign up and bid for the freelance writing jobs available. There are many copywriting jobs on each site, ranging from one-time, short freelance writing jobs to long-term copywriting positions.

Media Bistro

Check Media Bistro to find the latest copywriting jobs available through the site. The freelance writing jobs section of the site is updated daily with copywriting jobs posted by small businesses and large.

 There are jobs of every type listed on the site, including full-time jobs, short contract jobs and internships.


Look for copywriting jobs through Craigslist. If you are looking for online copywriting jobs, you can look through any city or region that is available through Craigslist. The San Francisco Craigslist site is one of the largest and most popular, and it's generally best place to start. If you are looking for a local copywriting job, look at the Craigslist site that centers on your area or the area nearest to you. However, be aware that many Craigslist jobs are scams that are only there to get your email address or sell you access to jobs. If you see a Craigslist job that is to good to be true, move on to the next one.

Mainstream Job Sites

Sign up with major job sites like and for email updates when there is a copywriting job available. These sites can send you an email every time a job that has the word copywriting in the title.

 However, it's best not to keep a resume on file with these sites that is visible by anyone offering a job. You may be contacted by scam artists over and over again if you do so.

Cold Calling

Make cold calls. If you live in a medium or large city, you can get some copywriting jobs simply by calling businesses and telling them that you offer copywriting services.

 This option is often difficult for people who are shy about taking to strangers, but it can be extremely effective.
