What is copywriting?
Copywriting is the art of writing persuasively in marketing, to convince the reader to take your intended action.
Don't go blindly into copywriting. A good copy takes planning. There is no hard-and-fast rule on how a good copy should look like, but we particularly like the structure that Neil Patel proposed:
Advantage (i.e. how the reader can benefit by solving the problem)
Proof (i.e. how your product / service can solve the problem)
You can see the PAPA structure in action here:
A good copy delivers a punch by using power words. Power words drive emotion, excitement and action. See for yourself how a headline with power words can capture attention:

The reality - people skim because of short attention spans. Your writing has to adapt to cater to the current reading habits.
You will have to say more with less.
Don't use a long or difficult word when a simpler one is sufficient.
Remove redundant words.
Use short, simple sentences.
Apple is a pro at being concise in their copywriting. See it for yourself here:
