If you want to make great money, even as a beginning writer, you need to become a copywriter. Copywriting is writing to sell, basically, and it’s very well paid because your writing makes money for others.
Every writer should know the fundamentals of writing copy because you need to sell your writing; there’s no way around that fact. You can’t make money writing if you can’t sell your own services.
Copywriting isn’t a big deal. Many copywriters try to create a mystique around it (and around themselves), which makes me giggle, because the fundamental copywriting formulae haven’t changed in over a century.
Your clients may think you create magic, but you’re just following a well-laid track, and getting well paid to do it.
If you want to become a copywriter, your DESIRE is your firmest indication that you can do it. (Actually, that applies to any form of writing — if you want to write something or other, your desire to do it is a good indication that with know-how, application, and persistence you CAN do it. Your desire is your intuition smacking you in the gut to get your attention.)
Developing a copywriting services business makes sense if you want to write from home.
How does $300 an hour sound to you? Copywriters are in high demand.
There’s no limitations on who can write copy. Neither age nor education is a bar: your clients don’t care.
So whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or a retiree, or just want to moonlight at your current job, copywriting is the most lucrative (and the most fun, if you love to write) occupation you can try.
