First of all let’s distinguish the difference between copyrighter and copywriter. The copyrighter is the owner obtaining their copyrights, for their product or business to avoid plagiarism and stealing. Whereas copywriters are those who write ads for businesses to sell a product. They can go hand in hand meaning after the copyrighter got their copyrights, they needed a copywriter to sell their product.
With this said, the term copywriter, was around ever since the world became literate and the dictionary was started by man. It’s the oldest term in marketing that goes hand and hand with sales. Most copywriters started off working for the businesses, in their offices.
The things and products that touch us in our lives, that we need and use every day, have all been promoted by a copywriter. Copywriters make and send out sales letters and ads, all with the persuasion of selling the product. The "copy" part of this comes in where multiple copies are made. Sometimes it crosses over with technical writer. But don’t get those two confused, either. Copywriters have the more interesting part of the sale. However these two can go hand in hand when selling a car. The copywriter has the fun part to get the car sold while the buyers go home happy, whereas the technical writer has to supply them with the how to article, on fixing the car when it breaks down.
Copywriters are needed in every industry in this world. Since the advent of IT, many more small businesses are coming to the internet companies, to get their copywriters who work from home to eliminate their overhead spending. Especially with being hit by the failing economy.
This is a very lucrative business on the internet. Anybody can do it from home. However, don’t fall for the fluff and scams. You don’t need to spend $400., to get a kit to show you how to this. Go the easier way to do this. Only search your local or county library that you have your card for, in the SEO. When your page downloads, submit your membership number. Then go right over to the reference section and enter “copywriting” into the search, then submit. You got everything that you need, right there, right in your home that you will need for your copywriting career.
