What is Copywriting?

I was two months into an early Copywriting career before I realized that I was a Copywriter.

The word "Copywriter" carries with it an odd mystique. I say odd because the concept is simple, yet many (like my younger self) get confused as to what a copywriter does.

A Copywriter is simply someone who writes Copy, and Copy is any form of writing that is used to sell. You can be selling anything – a product, service, idea, emotion, etc. – and you can be selling it by any means at all, from websites to emails.

. . . and yes, what you're reading right now is a great example of Copy.

(But don't run away just yet!)

Why Think About Copy?

Have you ever thrown away a credit card offer before opening the envelope? Many do, but why? As a business owner, you've probably wondered why people can so easily ignore some ads while soaking up others. The answer is simple:   Good  -vs-  Bad Copy.

Many businesses use tired & old methods of advertising, which fail to spark any interest or capture the imagination. Even credit card companies can be guilty of this. And yes, the outside envelope of a sales letter is still subject to bad copy – because today you even need to convince readers to open the letter in the first place!
