"You must learn from others in the industry by reading the best books on copywriting. That is how you will start a successful writing career."
You can do it, and here are some really great books that will get your business up and running and profitable in no time!
I have to admit, I love books and especially writing books! They have information about what type of jobs are available, tips and some great strategies.
When I realized that I had to be a writer, I didn't mess around. I researched, researched, and did even more research to find a way to, well...not starve while pursuing my dream of becoming a full-time freelance writer.
I found the most beautiful word that would allow me to continue to write fiction, my first love, and non-fiction ebooks without starving in the process!
The word is:
If you're not sure what a copywriter does, we write advertisements and promotional materials for businesses and even offer seo copywriting services. It's a great way to make a living!
Yes, I could do what I love and actually make great money too!
Wow, this was a new concept for me considering that my whole life I was told that if I didn't find a real job I would be what was known as a "starving artist" or in my case, a starving writer!
So, for years, I did look for a "real job". You know what I discovered?I realized that I have to be a writer! I just can't do anything else!
So with this, I had to find a way to write and eat too!
Copywriting was that way!
The copywriting books you find here are all in my private library.
I know, there are so many! You must remember, I have bought these over a fifteen year period, not all in a day. I did tell you I love books, and I have this need to research things almost to a fault! I had to be sure this was for me.
Did I learn anything new in each of these books? Yes, I did. But here are my top six. You might want to check them out first.
I really love Peter Bowerman's The Well-Fed Writer.
I have read all his books and I have to say, they are very easy to understand, well organized, funny, and he has some great samples and advice too. He tells you how, with no writing experience at all, to start a freelance copywriting business, and become financially self-sufficient in six months or less. It's must have information, especially if you are just starting your career! It's like taking a class in copywriting! What I really like is that reading his books are like talking to a friend.
When I started there wasn't anything like the well-fed writer out there. I consider it to be one of the best.
I also love Bob Bly's books. Especially, Secrets of a Freelance Writer: How to Make $100,000 a Year or More and The Online Copywriter's Handbook
Bob has been a freelance writer for over twenty-five years and is a true master!
