  1. Hi Agata, tell me who you are and what do you do as a freelancer?

Hi there😊 My name is Agata and I’m a professional freelance copywriter and content writer from Poland. I specialize in web writing, articles, blog and social media posts, press releases, etc. My working languages are Polish and English.

  1. How long have you been working as a freelancer now?

I think I started about 3 years ago. Earlier I worked in PR agency as an account executive. During my journalism studies, I also worked in daily newspaper, so It looks like I always liked to write.

  1. Why did you decide to become a freelancer? Did you think about it for a long time or did your decision come suddenly?

I thought about freelancing from time to time, but I made a decision when I was on maternity leave. Working as a freelancer is a new quality of life and the flexible job which give an opportunity for work-life-balance.

  1. What is your competitive advantage, which makes your clients hire you?

When I write a piece of business writing, whether it’s a simple article or even a big report, I invest a lot of energy to make it transparent, clear and readable in the same time. I just try to make content great and quality. My writing communications are based on research and facts, not my opinion. And I’m always on time – from my experience it is essential.

  1. Are there a lot of freelancers in your business?

There is plenty of copywriters but we all do different stuff.

  1. What do your clients expect from you?

They need two things – quality and punctuality. Sometimes they expect my to do something asap and I try to manage short deadlines. Being on time is very important in my business.

  1. Who are your typical clients?

I think I have 3 types of clients. I work with big companies such as corporations. They need support in their marketing communication. I also write for PR and advertising agencies and small, local companies.

  1. How has your business changed over time?

My business is still evolving. I constantly try to be better in web and content writing. I’m also learning how to do business every day. I have to be a copywriter, marketer and CEO in one person. Is it easy? Nope. But it is very rewarding and gives me satisfaction.

  1. How did you gain your first customers?

I gained my first customer through word of mouth 😊

  1. Which books do you recommend to freelancers?

There are two classics from the ad world: Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion and Ogilvy on Advertising.

  1. What would you do differently if you would start again?

I would be more confident and didn’t accept crap contracts for little money.

  1. What was the best business advice you received?

I gave it to myself – sometimes it gets difficult but success in my own business is worth it.

  1. Do you have an online resource which you use regularly? Which one?

I use some online tools such as: buzzsumo or answerthepublic.com for finding keywords or new topics. For simple graphic content, I use Canva.

  1. What do you often dream about when you’re not working?

I dream about publishing my own book and being rentier 😊

  1. The place where you find your peace?

My hammock chair in the garden. It’s the best place to find new ideas.

  1. Business plans for the future?

Being well-paid professional web and content writer not only on my local market 😊
