Copywriting, you should not be afraid of it.
Despite what you’ve heard, it really is as easy as pie … or maybe cheese.
Did you smile just now? Look what I mean, using words is so much fun that you only need a little time.
Everyone is scared … to the point where they do something so often that they start to feel comfortable. “Yes me too.”
If you continue like this, I will make you a promise, your fear will evaporate in time (just keep my secret formula between us).
The best way to start is to let your fingers do the talking; I mean, just write if you have a topic, an idea, let it flow, in the words of my famous math teacher, Mr. Nyron Lemonius: “do not think it ink resulting. “
Trust me, it works.
Hit while you’re hot; Take your ideas while they’re still fresh, it’s a pain to get a little inspiration and not act on it, “I was on to something, if only I could remember what it was.”
Don’t show your work yet – it’s best if you’re the only one who sees your first draft; nothing threatens your confidence like those “Nay Sayers”. Critics can just stifle your work to the point where it’s never completed (why bother if it’s not good?).
Even if you are afraid to publish your work anyway. You’ll see. Your fears may be unfounded and … someone, somewhere, may just connect with what you have to say.
One of the greatest half-truths of all time: “You need to be inspired before you can write.” Do you have your eyes open, are you awake? You can be inspired by everything around you. Look, pay attention, observe, Oh and don’t forget to look …
Information, there is no shortage of it. Don’t be a “copywriter.” It sure is a shortcut, but what are you cutting? Your reputation, your credibility, your quality, there’s no way it’s worth it.
I must admit that I too was guided down this path when I was just beginning; “you need a strong punch proceedings. “
No, you don’t. Why try to sound like everyone else? Be a content creator, life is so much better, when your content is unique, fits, connects with your visitors.
Your visitors become something else, they become your audience … they are more than people, they are your loyal followers; One thing with fans is they keep coming back for more, they remember your name, hey, some even take the time to type your “domain name” character by character, that’s something special.
All of this has led to an important announcement … good copywriters do their job; and invest time in learning and developing good writing skills.
He “learning“It can be a hideous word and it’s almost painful, but come on, I had to say it, it’s the truth.
Right now, right now, I’m struggling with this copywriting material; don’t tell anyone, but personally I’m terrified of punctuation and grammar; In my head I’m saying do I really need to bother with these things – – but I know that’s “scary” talking.
And if I’m going to be as good a writer as I want to be; I’m going to have to do whatever it takes to improve. And to my surprise it has not been at all what I expected, it has been fun. It has really been a lot of fun for me to develop; I’ve grown from the fear of not being good enough, to the point where I have my own fans here.
Yes! Yes, yes, yes, what a feeling; I told you it was fun all you need is a little time and effort, you will too.
In the words of my friend Nakia Rowe; “brick by brick step by step you will improve”.
