Marketing Copywriter Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Marketing Copywriter?

Marketing Copywriter in Minneapolis:
"Part-Time Marketing Copywriter."
Pros: I like most of the products the company carries, so the research and writing can be interesting. It feels good to see/contribute to a small business growing. It's not stressful because nothing is fully on my shoulders, but I feel motivated to help the products sell.
Cons: It can be dull to write product descriptions for similar products or products I wouldn't necessarily personally endorse. Working with many different vendors can be aggravating.
