The Copywriters’ Business Clinic
The Copywriters’ Business Clinic is a series of free online sessions hosted by Kit Sadgrove, the Blackford Centre’s Director.
Each clinic tackles a business problem faced by a specific copywriter. We put the recording on our site so other copywriters can learn from the conversation.

Our Clinics focus on challenges that copywriters face at any stage of their career. We help you decide what to do, based on your current goals and experience. With 20 years in the copywriting world, we’ve seen most challenges that copywriters face, and we’ve encountered a few ourselves.
Business Clinics cover issues that require a discussion with the copywriter and an understanding of what you’re trying to achieve. There is no charge. We hold sessions on Zoom, which we record and then make available to the public. So you should be willing to discuss your business situation and goals in public.
Typical problems faced by copywriters include:
- A lack of clients
- Low fees
- Finding a niche
- Getting experience
- Lack of self-confidence
- Clients who are difficult or demanding
- Revisions requested by clients
- Unhappy clients
- Unpaid invoices
- Pricing a job
- Building a website
- Taking online payments.
