hi friends! anticipating an offer for a senior copywriter role in-house in the next couple of days. last time I spoke with the recruiter the salary they could offer was $90K which seems really low based on market value (it’s in nyc). Any tips on how to successfully negotiate more? I’ll have a direct report and substantial responsibilities across the brand’s social and digital channels. TIA ❤️

Is there room to negotiate salary upon promotion from copywriter to senior copywriter? Any tips on how to get as close to market rate as possible? As it stands now, I'm definitely being underpaid in my current position and would like to correct that.

Copywriter with serious imposter syndrome at new job! How do senior writers up their game? Was in-house 1.5 years and underpaid in NYC. With only previous freelance experience (and nonprofit and grant writing before that) figured I had to slog through it for years. Cut to now, 6 months into a new copywriting role at huge tech company. My salary almost quintupled overnight. I think I’m doing great, but that depends on the day and who I work with (no other writers by the way).
