I have been studying and learning about how to become a copywriter. I have always been into sales and I love IM. There is a lot of information on "how to" when it comes to writing great sales pages, but my question to everyone is how did you get into copywriting and become successful at it?
Did you need a sales letter and not want to hire someone so you wrote it yourself and continued to tweek it until it was converting well? Or did the whole concept of writing sales letters interest you so you wanted to learn? How did you get where you are today as a successful copywriter?
I am reading books and I need to write a letter soon. I want to do it myself though because I really want to learn the art/science of it all. Thanks in advance for your input!
