Try Your Hand at Copywriting

Copywriting is an umbrella term used to describe any number of writing jobs that are promotional in nature. Blog writing can even be considered copywriting when the goal is to increase organic traffic to a website. If you haven’t heard this term before, it can be confusing when you hear it spoken out loud. You might think it has to do with copyright law. But just one letter in the word changes its meaning completely.

Copywriting is all about conveying clear ideas and moving people to action. It helps if you have some sort of sales background, but you don’t have to be the most outgoing person in public to be a successful copywriter in print. The writings that copywriters produce are called copy, so you’ll hear people talk about web copy or email copy, and things like that. The most common types of copywriting are the copy for pages on a website such as services or about us pages, blog posts, and landing pages. We chose copywriting for our Side Hustle Master List because almost anybody can find a specialty in it.
