Ep 016: How to find your first copywriting client with Bernadette Schwerdt

You can’t get a job without work experience – but you can’t get work experience without a job.

This age-old chicken-or-the-egg scenario stops talented copywriters from getting started. But there is a way around it. 

In this podcast Bernadette talks to us about:

  • finding your first client
  • creating the marketing collateral clients need to see to hire you
  • starting small and use online events to start networking elegantly
  • overcoming imposter syndrome
  • believing that what you have is useful and of value
  • following up without feeling nervous
  • identifying your niche
  • creating your copywriting pitch and deliver it with aplomb.
