A copywriter is the person who writes all content for websites, magazine and almost every piece of text you see on a daily basis.
Key aspects of being a copywriter…
The main goal of a copywriter is to make the client happy and increase sales with what they have written.
This will come in the form of regular meetings to discuss the product, and lots of research to dial into the pulse of a market making the words more effective.
Top five duties that a copywriter will perform…
1. Meeting with the client to determine what the company needs and what angle will be taken in promoting a product.
2. Market research to find out who the target market is and how best to make them respond. This is often done using Internet forums because this is where the market can meet without thinking they are being watched.
3. To bring the drafts and final copy in on time.
4. If the web copy is online the copywriter will split test the pages to see what gets the most response.
5. Often the copywriter will also come up with slogans for the products and even brand names.
