Here i am,trying to become an excellent Copywriter i joined the Warrior forum to learn from a more experienced copywriter.
I read :
'' The Boron Letter'' by Gary Halbert
''Ogilvy on Advertising''
''Scientific Advertising'' by Claude C. Hopkins
''The Adweek Copywriting Handbook'' by Joseph Sugarman
and i am,actually, re-writing by hand '' The Boron Letter'' getting so accustomed to the best writing style. I read '' Scientific Advertising'' kinda 4 times( and i'll go on reading it for next three months probably or a full year if necessary).
My question is: once i've ''mastered'' a good style and understood the marketing rules , how should i begin my career? Would you reccommend me to start as a freelancer or to contact Ad Agencies?
Should i practice for free?Do i need a personal website? What is a portfolio and what should i write in it?
I believe Copywriting is perfect for me(i love write,research,i'm super curious etc...) so i hope i will receive from you as many suggestions as possible to start this new exciting adventure in Advertising.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Have a Good Day.
