Can writing a book make you rich?
Average book authors don’t make a lot of money. But you can, even if you gave away all your books. You receive an advance and 10% royalties on net profit from each book. If your book retails at $25 per copy, you would need to sell at least 4,000 copies to break even on a $5,000 advance.
How much should I charge as a copywriter?
Actually, it depends on their skill level. Junior copywriters who have been in the business for 2 years or less would charge $50–$80 per hour. Mid-level copywriter $80–$120 per hour and the top copywriters about $120–$200 per hour. It might sound a lot at first but I don’t advise you to exchange your time for money.
