Freelance writer. It does have a certain ring to it, doesn’t it? There are a few drawbacks to putting it on your business cards, though. It’s a very general job title: a writer could be working on articles, SEO optimization, writing marketing copy, or a whole list of other things.
I spent a few minutes trying to think up more specific job titles and came up with this list. Feel free to add to it in the comments:
- Copy writer
- Corporate Communications Specialist
- Publications Specialist
- Writing Consultant
- Writing Coach
- Newsletter writer
- Staff Writer
- Technical Writer
Personally, I’ve used different job titles when talking to different people. If I’m trying to land a client who needs press releases written, I’ll focus on that. If I’m trying to query for a magazine, I’ll describe myself as a journalist.
What does your business card say?
