Become an Advertising Copywriter
Get Paid to Persuade

Advertising copywriters write the ads that millions of people watch, read, or listen to every day. Their words move people, and sell billions of dollars worth of products every year. 

You can see the power of copywriting in the success of companies such as Nike ("Just do it"), McDonald's ("I'm lovin' it"), and Coca-Cola

As an advertising copywriter you will have a job that is creative, stimulating, often glamorous, and generally just a lot of fun every day of the week. 

One day you could be flying across the country to shoot a national TV spot with a celebrity. A week later you could be conjuring up the name of a new breakfast cereal. 

Are you cut out for copywriting?

Here are some traits of successful copywriters. Click on the box next to each one that describes you.
You are a keen observer of people and trends.
You love all kinds of media - movies, music, books, TV, the web, etc. (You'd watch the Super Bowl just for the commercials.)
You have a great sense of humor
You have a unique ability to understand human nature and what makes people tick.
You're creative. When faced with a problem, you can come up with ways to solve it.
You're open-minded.
You have a way with words, and your words can move people to action.
You look fabulous wearing black.
SCORING:  Looking fabulous in black is optional, but if you checked most of the others, advertising copywriting may be the ideal job for you.

As an advertising copywriter you will have a high paying job that lets you see the results of your creativity - on television, in magazines, on billboards, and elsewhere. Plus your workplace will likely be filled with perks most people can only dream about (loft offices, in-house coffee bars, free samples of the products you're selling, and much more).
