My name is Samwriterr.
Now I do not know if this is related at all to copywriting, but I figured out that since the services I offer are related to copywriting & perhaps a little of persuasion, then this might be my table.
P.S; If i have posted on the wrong thread kindly inform me.
Starting out as a new copywriter without any mentors, yet holding on to passion is a daunting task. Everyone can agree with me on this one. It gets even harder when you start your own website with the hope that the few years you have written will steer you enough to become that perfect copy writer.
Often, you will notice that this kind of copywriter (the passionate one who does not have any mentor) tries to copy the industry's best copy writers
And by this I mean go to sites like copy-blogger and copy some of their style in the about page and the service page. .
In most case when you visit the likes of copy-blogger or kiss-metric for that matter, you will notice that this guys do posses real experience.
Let me copy and paste a sample excerpt from success works
|Ive worked with top companies all around the world from search engines and television networks, to Fortune 50 companies and major publishers. Over the years, Ive presented at hundreds of conferences, including SMX, PubCon, SearchFest, AWAIs Web Writing Intensive, Search Engine Strategies, MarketingProfs and more.|
Now what the new copy writer does is re-frame this excerpt in their about page by saying that they are also experienced. Perhaps this technique might attract customers, but then again, it might hurt the reputation of the new copy writer.
So to cut the long chase, as a new copy writer, is it advisable to say that you have no experience? Remember, this industry is weird, clients are always looking for experienced writers and if that is the case, when will the new copy writer ever land a gig.
what are best practices for a passionate copy writer located in some weird corner of the world where only few people know about copy writing.
