Copywriter

From brochures to billboards and every promotional material in between, everything you read was written by a copywriter. Copywriters supply the words for websites, flyers, radio advertisements and more to help companies sell their products or services to a target audience. If you’ve 

ever seen an ad that compels you to buy, it’s because that company had a great copywriter on their team. Copywriters combine their writing acumen with an understanding of marketing and the psychology behind client purchases to write impactful messaging that sells. Every company needs a good copywriter on their marketing team to make ad campaigns a success, and many need help in this domain, making it a great opportunity for VBOs. 


DESCRIPTION

Contrary to what the title suggests, copywriters do a lot more than write.. Copywriters research current marketing trends, apply SEO best practices, source stock images to complement copy, and more. They often collaborate with marketers and graphic designers on ad campaigns as well. Unlike other writers such as novelists and journalists, Copywriters typically create copy for promotional purposes.
