Just wanted to say hello and quickly intro myself. And give my reasons for joining.
Ok, so i am keen to learn copywriting, persuassion, salemanship. I have no wrting experience except for writing a few awesome tunes on the old wooden box.
I know SEO, Wordpress and little Clickfunnels (self taught)
However, this has been for family, and doing it for stangers is another thing altogether. Most people in the u.k dont understand the value of advertising and it's become too frustrating. There expectations are set so high. For example they think £500 pm is too much money to advertise there own business against good competiton and would rather rely on "word of mouth" or cheap directories.
I heard a saying "they want the world on a stick for the price of a lollipop" so true.
I want out that small minded world and to build my own income through either through selling people products, crtique other copy etc. All on my own terms, as fast as possible but patient.
So, because I started to find out more about copywriting through my previous experience, I now want to get started.
My current dilema is this:
1) I dont know what the best type copywriting is to master, there are so many specialities, email, direct response, content etc
2) When I know what speciality to learn, who do I learn from? there are experts everywhere?
3)Where do I apply my practice from what I've learned from question 2.
4)How do i get the best feeback to correct mistakes and progress?
I am keen to learn, apply, learn, apply...
p.s I joined here because the facebook groups are just not for me, too many trolls with not alot to say.
p.s.s I am hoping this forum can be a BIG saviour and turn my fortunes around even just a little but so I can build momentum and return the favour.
p.s.s If anyone is looking for an apprentice/student/dogsbody give me a chance.
