🐠Copywriters🐠

I'm finally switching over to cw after years in strat! A decrease in salary is expected but what should I expect for first yr CW w/ 4 yrs of strat? I was offered 65k/NY. Thanks!!

No, I think that’s a fair salary for a new copywriter. Your experience in strat is good, but it doesn’t make you a copywriter. You’re a junior copywriter and that’s an appropriate salary

Maybe...? I’m not sure. Most creatives (especially coming out of portfolio school) are used to doing at least some of their own strategy and/or are highly strategic anyway. So it could. But not necessarily.

You might start at the same salary as any junior but you’ll probably move up faster given your agency experience. Congrats and go kill it! 💪🏻

That’s some bullshit. Being a CS with 4 yrs, you should be seeing at least 80K

Strategy experiment is helpful, but not the same as creative experience at all

Idk, first year CW with zero portfolio school or anything...65k seems pretty on point

Sorry I should have mentioned I'm actually in portfolio school now.

Agreed, 65k is higher than I was making as a junior two years ago. The strat is helpful, but not the same. Maybe when you finish portfolio school you can ask for a raise, like people do when they get masters degrees.
