Copywriters master both sides of the Human Brain

- They highlight specific details while always considering the big picture.
- They have impressive analytical skills and very creative imaginations.
Writers use their right brain, copywriters use both!
Jam-packed with useful (and useless) information
Constantly reading and revising their work
Never uses 20 words when 5 can say the same thing
Add their unique personality to everything they write
New ideas will pop up daily
Always developing creative new concepts
They can make anything sound enticing
Copywriters Can't Turn Off Their Brain!
More than two-thirds of copywriters keep a laptop or notepad next to their bed. Even when they are sleeping, they are dreaming up better ways to word their latest ad copy.
Copywriters are Perfectionists
A quality copywriter will write the same sentence five different times before they are satisfied with how it sounds. If clients didn't give them deadlines, they would never finish revising and perfecting any piece of content.
Not every writer will make a good copywriter!
Copywriting requires relationship building and social skills. It takes more than just a working knowledge of the language to trigger an emotional response from potential buyers. Copywriters are able to really connect with their audience
on a more personal level by tapping into how they think and feel.
Copywriters can make anything sound appealing!
A skilled copywriter can make a sewage treatment plant's services sound just as enticing as a chocolate factory.
Copywriters Love Synonyms
A good copywriter won't use the same adjective or adverb twice in an article unless it is a keyword.
Copywriters Capture Audiences with Compelling Headlines!
It only takes five seconds for readers to decide whether or not they will read your content, and it is all based on the main title. In fact, 80% of people will read your headline, while only 20% will read the entire post.
What is the difference between these two headlines?
One of these headlines was written by a financial advisor, and the other was crafted inside the brain of a talented copywriter.
‘The young will inherit the national debt”
"Blessed are the young for they shall inherit the national debt“
Both titles do a fine job of explaining the article and they use almost the same wording. Which article sounds more intriguing?
Copywriters are Minimalists
If you look at all the famous slogans and ad copy, you will notice that less is more.
Ad space is expensive and quality copywriters are able to say more using fewer words.
