Introducing Jill Bynon - freelance copywriter.



FF: Hi Jill and welcome to the Freelance Factory. How did you find out about FF?
Jill: I first saw an advert for Freelance Factory in B&T magazine. I'd been looking for an Australian freelancing site and was keen to start local before I went global. My experience with FF has been good so far. I'd only been listed for a day when I got my first enquiry, which has led to some ongoing work.

How did you start out as a freelancer?
An interesting question. I'd been pondering freelancing for a while and as my last corporate job reached its natural end, it was an opportunity for me to take the plunge and go it alone.

How long have you been freelancing?
I've been freelancing for around 18 months, having initially juggled full time employment and freelancing, which involved some seriously long hours, but was all worth it in the end.

What do you sepecialise in?
My speciality is the fact that I am both a marketing expert and an experienced copywriter. With 12 years as an in-house marketer (and wrote all my own copy!), I have solid background in all things marketing, as well as plenty of general business nous. All this means I can bring that extra level of understanding to my copywriting.

How does freelancing affect your lifestyle?
My workload can be either frantically busy or quiet. I find it quite liberating to be able to pick up a paintbrush or do some sewing in the lull times. That's the lovely advantage of being freelance over a corporate employee.

What has been your career highlights?
As a relative newbie freelancing, I'm sure I've got plenty of career highs ahead of me. However, winning a national award for Marketing Excellence from the Australian Marketing institute was a pretty special moment in my marketing career.

What other interests do you have?
I'm a keen boatie and can often be found cruising on Sydney harbour at weekends. I'm planning for some 'floating office' days this summer too!

FF: Thanks for your time Jill!
It's great to have you on board.

Jill is based in Sydney.
