How I view copywriting  

As a copywriter, I have come to view copywriting as a strategic craft that requires some creativity and a little understanding of human psychology. Copywriting is more than just stringing words together. It has the power to captivate an audience and drive action.

Copywriting is about connecting with your target audience. It's about understanding their needs, desires, and pain points. Whether it's selling a product or promoting a service, effective copywriting speaks directly to the heart of the reader.

What else does copywriting include?

Creativity also plays a crucial role in copywriting. It's not enough to simply convey information. You need to do it in a way that grabs attention and leaves a lasting impression. A well-crafted headline or tagline can make all the difference in capturing the reader's interest from the very beginning.

Also utilizing persuasive techniques like scarcity or urgency can create a sense of FOMO (fear of missing out) and prompt immediate response amongst your target audience. 

What I also find fascinating is its versatility across different mediums. From traditional print advertisements to website content and social media posts, copywriters adapt their writing style according to the platform and target audience. Each medium presents its own set of challenges and opportunities for effective communication.

How I started copywriting

My journey into copywriting began during my university studies. While studying marketing, I discovered the importance of persuasive writing in advertising and branding. The idea of using words to connect with an audience and drive action fascinated me.

To gain practical experience in copywriting, I interned at a few places. This gave me hands-on experience in creating social media posts, website content, and blog writing. It also allowed me to discover my style and learn more about how the field works.

One key aspect of my journey in copywriting has been continuous learning. Staying updated with industry trends is crucial for creating relevant and impactful content. Copywriting has not only allowed me to express my creativity but also make a meaningful impact on businesses and individuals through words.

4 challenges I faced as a copywriter

No work is without its challenges. Here are some of the challenges I faced in copywriting. 

1 - Finding the right style

Everyone has their own unique voice and tone that needs to be reflected in their copy. Understanding that accurately can be challenging, especially when dealing with diverse industries or target audiences. 

It took me a while before I was comfortable writing the way I do now and needless to say, it has worked out well for me so far.

2 - Tight deadlines

One of the major challenges in copywriting is working under tight deadlines. Oftentimes you need to deliver fast, leaving little room for extensive research or revisions. This can be stressful and may impact the quality of the final product. 

To overcome this, I had to learn to prioritize tasks, manage my time effectively, and communicate openly with my colleagues to set realistic expectations.

3 - Generating fresh ideas

Coming up with fresh ideas for every piece of content is another challenge in copywriting. Avoiding clichés and repetitive content while keeping the message clear and engaging can be a struggle.

I constantly seek inspiration from various sources such as industry trends, competitor analysis, feedback, and brainstorming sessions.

4 - Adapting to different platforms

Copywriters must adapt their writing style for different platforms such as websites, social media posts or emails. Each platform has its own requirements like, formatting limitations, SEO optimization, and audience preferences. 

Adapting quickly to these variations while maintaining consistency in messaging can be demanding but essential for success.

How AI made things easier for me

Before AI became a huge part of everyone’s life, we all had to do things the traditional way. Now, I don’t even remember what it was like pre-AI era.  

Ever since ChatGPT’s success, there came many other AI tools like Typetone AI that were created specifically for marketers. When I started implementing Typetone AI in my workflow, things became so much easier. Of course, it made my work faster and better and easily helped me brainstorm ideas, but that is a given with any AI tool.

One of the ways AI has helped me is by enhancing my creative process. In the past, I would often struggle with writer's block or spend hours brainstorming ideas. But now, I can generate unique and engaging content effortlessly. By providing a simple prompt, Typetone AI can generate a variety of creative suggestions that spark my imagination and help me think outside the box.

As you can see how with a single command, Typetone AI generates a list of ideas for your blog or content piece. All of this is just a click away and I do not have to spend hours coming up with new ideas. 

Moreover, it also helped me structure my writing more effectively. Usually, organizing ideas and creating a logical flow was a time-consuming task. But with AI, I generally use a layered technique to easily break down my copy into sections and generate content for each part separately. This not only saves me time but also ensures that every section of my copy is well-developed and coherent.

Furthermore, AI gave me a clear understanding of my writing principles. It helped me identify areas where I could improve as a writer and helped me approach problems differently. These insights enable me to polish my work and deliver high-quality copy that meets professional standards.

This way you can also use these methods when you create content for your business and be a step ahead of your competitors. Using these methods would give you an edge over others and also get your creative juices flowing. 

5 best practices to follow when using AI

Using AI tools is much easier when you keep these practices in mind.

Know what you are writing about

While AI can generate content on any given topic, it is essential for you to have a clear understanding of what it is exactly that you want. This way you can also prompt the AI to provide you with the answer or content you are looking for. 

Use an infobase

This is a unique feature on Typetone AI Enterprise and it also makes work much more efficient for businesses. You can gather all your PDFs or DOCX files containing company information into an infobase. 

Now you can simply choose a template and select the relevant infobase. When you fill in the template, the system uses your infobase documents to find relevant information and include it in the text it generates. This makes sure that the content is based on facts that it does not generate random content. It guarantees accuracy and saves time when creating content.

Use a tool that is GDPR compliant

It is safe to say that we all care about our privacy and data rights. That is why you should always pick an AI tool that is GDPR compliant, like Typetone AI. This means that your data is safe from being misused and  GDPR compliance also implements measures to protect data integrity and confidentiality. 

Fact-check your content

Even though AI can generate content quickly, don't compromise on fact-checking and verifying the information provided by the AI tool. Cross-reference the generated content with credible sources to ensure accuracy and credibility.

Customize output

Typetone AI allows you to customize your output according to your preferences. You can guide Typetone AI by adjusting parameters such as tone, style, or complexity of language. You can adjust these on any of the templates you wish to use. 

You can also add your own custom tone of voice that resonates with your audience. Experiment with these until you achieve the desired writing style that reflects your brand voice or target audience. 

My go-to AI tool

By now, you must have an idea of what my go-to AI tool is. It is, without a doubt, Typetone AI. I prefer it because it works perfectly for me and helps me quite well with my work. With that being said, using AI in my work is based on my personal opinion and experiences with the tool itself. I do not believe that AI could ever replace humans.

It lacks the humanity that we have, and AI fails to humanize content in general. That is why we always proofread and edit AI generated content. What it does really well is come up with great ideas and speed up your workflow by easily generating content for all of your platforms, as you can see in the images in the blog.

So, you can always take that advantage by using Typetone AI’s ready-made templates for your work. Look at how it worked wonders for me. You can also get the same experience by following those five best practices and creating content that is banger for your website or blog. Sign up today for free.
