For many people, copywriting is a second career. And like any other life-changing decision, you have to make sure it’s the right one for you.
You’ve probably been scouring the web trying to find out what it’s like to be a copywriter and what’s involved. Realistically, nobody can predict your future and tell you that copywriting is the career for you, or whether you have what it takes.
Most copywriters are freelancers. This means they are self-employed and responsible for their own earnings, tax, National Insurance, etc. That’s not something to take lightly. As a freelancer, you have to make sure you earn enough to pay your bills and feed your family. You also have to keep records and do all the boring stuff like that. You’ll find some useful information on setting up as a freelancer on the ‘startups’ website.
If you have a love of the language and enjoy writing, you almost certainly have what it takes to become a copywriter. There’s a big difference between being able to write well and writing great copy, though. The Copywriting Apprentice course will teach you all the necessary techniques and styles you’ll need become a copywriter.

And if you don’t, your financial investment is protected because all your money is refunded.
