You may also want to consider doing an internship at a publication you hope to work for full time in the future to make connections with editors and other writers at the publication. Many of these internships will likely not be paid, at least not at first. Be prepared to receive compensation in the form of connections and contacts. But be wary of being taken advantage of as free labor. If you feel uncomfortable working for free, try to find internships that pay.[9]
Do you love writing? Do you want to turn it into a part- or full-time income, but don’t know how? The naysayers will discourage you, telling you that you can’t ever get paid more than a few hundred bucks a month. I’m here to tell you they’re wrong. My name’s Johnson Kee, author and producer of “Copywriting for Beginners”. I’ve been writing for just over 7 years now. I started off slowly, improved my skill then started finding clients. Now, clients pay me $1,000’s a month to write for them. I’m here to show you how I did it and to get your first client in a matter of weeks.

Another way I use to write copy is write down headlines from my swipe file on little 3 x 5 cue cards and shuffle them. Then I ask myself 10 questions about who my target market is, like what keeps them up at night? What are their biggest frustrations, what are their biggest fears, what do they secretly desire the most… etc. what makes them tick. And also shuffle that with the headlines.
