What is copywriting?
If you dream to make money online you need to learn to Copywrite, many people out there hire a copywriter but it is not possible for everyone to do that. It is a skill you can develop. So what is copywriting?
“Copywriting is writing words for advertisement, it is different than describing product and service. In copywriting, you tell a story of how you have been influenced by certain product or service, and at the end ask your audience if they like to enjoy the life-changing experience as you did, click the link that will lead them to your product.”
Copywriting is a bait to hook your audience’s attention, your advertisement should engage someone who is already bouncing on many windows on their mobile phones or computer screens. If you just describe your product, you will be unable to catch their attention.
Examples of copywriting:
For example, you want to sell a shoe
You wrote: X shoe is comfortable, cheap and durable.
There is missing “why”
Why should a customer buy these shoes? There are many companies who claim
Their product is comfortable, cheap and durable
So what is special about this shoe?
As a copywriter, What I will write
I have been suffering from obesity, doctors told me if I lose weight 70℅ of my health issues will be solved.
Every morning I decide to jog, but only walking after a few meters I stopped, there was something holding my feet.
I felt heavy and difficult to walk
In the beginning, I was thinking it’s my weight but
One day I read about X shoes and I bought it immediately
The following day I was able to walk two miles
I was genuinely astonished!!!!
The succeeding day I walked 3 miles
And in a month I was able to lose 10 pounds
It’s totally because of my comfortable shoes
It made me walk like a conjuring trick

Boom!!! It will sell
When you tell the backstory before you present a product or service it will allow everyone to connect with that story in one way or another. If people feel they relate to your backstory, they will want to pursue your journey to get to where you are today.
But if you just describe characters of a product only a specific group of people will understand that product and they might buy.
Therefore, copywriting is presenting your product with a backstory, your audience will follow you because they will feel a personal connection.
Have you ever noticed an advertisement on TV? Or you are the one who always likes to change channels whenever there is a commercial break. If you are I suggest since today start watching advertisements and I am sure you will learn every commercial within 30 seconds tell us a short and attractive story.
