I'm an experienced copywriter, but one thing that I'm not good at is doing all of those graphics you see in sales letters like boxes, arrows, buy buttons, etc.
To be honest, mostly when i write sales letter I'll cut and paste graphics from other sales letters into microsoft word.
How can I learn how to create graphics myself? Is there graphic design program that is good for this. Do you know of any good training programs for this kind of simple graphic design? What about for microsoft word?
Another question for the experienced copywriters on here: do you mostly create the graphics yourself or do you have someone else do them?
