Every writer has to start somewhere.
Copywriting for the web, being a specialized form of writing, requires that copywriters understand that writing for the Internet is an entirely different profession.
The novice online copywriter needs every bit of help he can get. We’ve all been there, and we know how desperately one needs to have all the resources required to hit the ground running.
For starters, every reliable resource counts. Every reliable resource is a treasure.
That’s why I’d like to talk about some of the best resources that every copywriter — novice and veteran — can rely on. And whether you’re starting out or you’re a veteran who’s hit a wall, there are many resources that can help you.
