A friend of mine asked me today how she could get started as a freelance copywriter. And because I don't want a competitor, I kept all the secrets to myself.
Just kidding ...
I told her exactly which resources I used (and still use) to get started.
Here are the best sites with a ton of free material like blog posts and tutorials that will get you pretty far in learning copywriting:
Copyhackers - Once a week live tutorials on all things copywriting and freelancing
Copyblogger - Great articles and resources
Kopywriting Kourse - Copywriting taught in the most laid back, funny way
Neil Patel - The King of SEO and Marketing
Hubspot Academy - Free certifications (I've taken the Content and Email Marketing Courses.)
Of course, there's another part to becoming a freelance copywriter - the "freelance" part. How do you get your first client?
Freelance to Win helped me get started with that. It's focused on getting your freelancing business off the ground through Upwork. For a total newbie (like I was), that was the easiest, most straightforward path. Literally, anybody can set up a profile on Upwork in a couple of minutes and look for the first simple jobs.
Now, I'm also following Double Your Freelancing to take it to the next level.
Hope this is useful :)
