What is Copywriting?
Copywriting is a form of persuasive marketing and promotional material that motivates people to take some kind of action, such as buying something, clicking a link, donating to a cause, or planning a plan. These may include written promotions that are published in print or online.
They can also include spoken content, such as scripts used for videos or advertisements. The writing of these documents is called "printing", hence the name "writing".
You may not realize it, but copywriting is everywhere.
In fact, if you start by looking at your mailbox, you will see a clear example of taking notes. Promotions for local restaurants, catalogs, fundraising letters, or marketing letters for various products and services are forms of infringement.
But the world of writing is more than printed matter. Much of what you read online is also written, including most web pages, any free articles you subscribe to, and even emails you receive when you subscribe.
What you hear may also be transcription at work. TV commercials, product reviews on YouTube, and even short "how-to" videos for using a product are all examples of word of mouth.
We will go into a lot of detail about the different types of writing, but this gives you an idea of the many ways writing affects all of our lives.
(NOTE: Copywriting should not be confused with the word "copyright" Copyright refers to the legal right to reproduce or sell a human work, such as a book, music or art. Purpose of Copyright Copyright is to protect this original material and prevent its illegal use. Copyright is recorded with icen ©.)
What is a Copywriter?
A copywriter is a professional copywriter who is responsible for writing text, or copy, used in marketing and promotional materials. You've probably heard various myths about writers, such as the suggestion that talented writers are born and you can't "learn" to write.
Or maybe you have heard something different, that there is no skill in writing and anyone can do it. When it comes to moving, both myths are false.
Editors are professionals who have learned and performed their work. None of us were born knowing how to write a great copy, but it's really a skill that almost anyone can learn with a little patience.
Perhaps because of the myth about writers, copywriting is still a specialized profession that only a few people engage in. But this works to your advantage as a copywriter, because it means it's harder to find properly trained copywriters.
