Senior Copywriter Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Senior Copywriter in Orlando:
"CTRL + C, CTRL + V... PROFIT!"
As a young writer, I spent way too much time trying to be creative. Today, I know that a consistent brand voice is key. Taglines and boilerplate copy are a writer's best friend. There's no need to re-invent the wheel. I also encourage young writers to immerse yourself in your subject matter as much as possible. Know your subject/product inside and out, so that your writing is honest and accurate. We have a responsibility, as writers, to accurately represent our subject matter.

Senior Copywriter in Denver:
"Sometimes you're a hero. Sometimes you're a zero."
Keep trucking. Tomorrows always a new day.

Senior Copywriter in Kansas City:
"Be ready for change."
Especially in the website and online world, rules change due to SEO mostly. The writing doesn't change as much as the rules - like writing H1s, H2s, linking, etc.
