Copywriting is not simply writing, you can be a great writer but it still takes different skills to be a copywriter. Copywriting is a discipline in itself and requires a certain mindset and also a certain set of skills that you can obviously learn to master.  Let us take a look at 4 essential skills that will make you a good if not a great copywriter and will help you shine in the copywriting world.  


We had to start with this point because it is the cornerstone of a good copywriter. To simply put, a copyrighted is someone who needs to understand the product or the service that they are writing about and find out the fine points that compel them to buy it in the first place. And this process can only commence if they know the product thoroughly and know which points to pitch in and use to bring in customers.   Let’s say the copywriter is trying to work on a new product like a smartphone then the copywriter must know everything about the technology related to the smartphone and must understand that technology. For instance, the iPhone X had face ID as a security measure and that face ID used a technology that they called the flood illuminator technology, now a good copywriter would do further research and find out that it was a fancy way of saying that the iPhone used infrared lights and a time-of-flight sensor. This will allow the copywriter to further stress the point that Face ID could even work in the dark.  


When it boils down to the bare essentials it is all about psychology because the major part of a copywriting job is to be able to compel the potential customer with points.  And this is only possible if the copywriter has a keen knowledge of psychology and can understand and tap into the minds of the potential customer. Which will then allow them to stress the points that a potential customer can understand and relate to.  Let us take for example the toy cars from Hot Wheels, in this project specifically the copywriters would have had to understand the mind of teens and preteens, their target audience, to understand what kind of marketing would allow these teens to wish that they had a Hot Wheels car. Thus, making psychology a key part of copywriting.  


In the modern world of copywriting, digital marketing is one of the most important things that a copywriter should know and understand. The copywriter must have a detailed understanding of how social media works and how one can tap into viral trends and viral lingo that is popular at that time.  Along with that, the copywriter must be apt in SEO and thus be able to tap into the raw potential of organic rankings that will rank the website. The modern copywriter must also be able to properly use keywords as that you essential for SEO. This is to some extent psychology but a psychology of understanding search engines and algorithms and how they are going to treat certain pieces of text and how to best manipulate search engines.  


Although the language is not the most essential skill that a copywriter needs, it is one of the most important and certainly comes in the top five.  Whatever you do and no matter how good your research and your digital marketing skills, as well as your psychology understanding skills, are, they finally boil down to how you manifest them and express them. And that is through language. Until we develop some other form of communication like telepathy, we copywriters are stuck to the language as the only primary medium and it is through this language that we mostly do our copywriting skills.  Now by language do not mean that your language must be of the highest order and must be complex because complex is an enemy of copywriting as too complex language and the potential customer will not understand.  These were a few essential skills that every copywriter must know how to master to reach greatness in the copywriting world.
