New Internet Copywriter
Welcome to the Desert Writers Guild, my name is Jennifer Carpenter and I am a freelance copywriter. I cover most copywriting subjects.
As Wikipedia states “Copywriting is the act of writing text for the purpose of advertising or other forms of marketing. The product, called copy, is written content that aims to increase brand awareness and ultimately persuade a person or group to take a particular action.” – Wikipedia
Being a freelance copywriter
Copywriting for a website
If you have created a site for your product, the next part may be a bit daunting, that of writing the actual copy for your site. If you’ve thought of writing it yourself, you may be able to turn out good copy, but can you turn out terrific copy that will actually sell the product?
A freelance copywriter does this for a living, and although it’s a closely guarded secret for many authors, if you were to look into history of many copywriters, you might very well find that some of them have written published books. Yes, the hard stuff with the pages attached to its binding.
Interestingly enough, many very successful writers have now gone the way of working as a freelance copywriter. By being a freelancer and writing copy for various sites, they can have shorter deadlines than a book requires, thus avoiding a procrastination trap. Next, because they work freelance, they can demand the salaries that their expertise requires.
You, on the other hand, will benefit greatly by having interesting copy that captivates your audience and requires them to ask you for further information or perhaps order your product or services then and there. The copywriter will know how to target the audience, and subsequently make that all-important sale for you.
Promoting your product
Although you may know your product extremely well, it does not mean that you know how to promote it. Great freelance copywriters know how to do that by grabbing your reader’s immediate attention, stimulating their interest, and finally convincing them to actually purchase your product.
Thus, you can see that you are not only paying for writing, you are actually paying for the expertise that the writer has received and wishes to impart to you. It’s a win-win situation for you the seller, as well as the freelance writer and your customers too.
