10 Ways to Succeed as a Copywriter, Parts 1-10

Send to Kindle

If you’ve been reading this blog for the last few months, you know I’ve been writing a series of posts on copywriting. Similar to the approach I took with my series on social media, I’ve looked at copywriting from a 30,000-foot level, focusing on the principles you need to be mindful of if you want to succeed in this profession.

As I wrote about my own career in the very first post in this series

I may have worked for a number of different companies, developed new skills and taken on new responsibilities – such as creative direction, public speaking and social media – along the way, but I’ve also stayed true to my roots as a copywriter.

And after all of these years writing headlines and subject lines, direct mail packages and email blasts, blog posts and brochures, teasers and tweets, I’ve been able to draw a handful of conclusions about what it takes to succeed as a copywriter.

Now that I’ve completed this 2,800-word series on copywriting, I’ve bundled each post together and archived them as one long article, “10 Ways to Succeed as a Copywriter,” which you can read in its entirety here. Or simply click on the fifth tab over (the next to last one to the right) at the top of this blog.

For your convenience, I’ve also listed each post in this series below with its corresponding link.
