That’s it?! I’m in the same boat and that would be a serious pay cut

Maybe I’m wrong 🤷‍♀️but if a senior makes 110-120 I’d say mis level is 80

70-90 depending on your book and the size of the shop. Ask for $90 if it’s a big network agency. They’ll try to get you to come down but you might be able to swing it

With 3.5 years experience, I'd say higher end of that. 85-99k honestly. 6 figures is *usually reserved for senior or higher

We pay our mid copywriters $70-90k. That’s 3-5 years experience in NYC, small Indy shop .
