Must-Have Tips and Resources For Writers, Content Marketers and Copywriters
If you are the kind of person who is desperately trying to paint a white page with a few words, then writing might not be for you.
The firsts qualities of good writers are that they have a passion for writing, words come out naturally, and they are not scared about the white page syndrome.
In a nutshell, to be a good writer you need to be able to write as easily as you breathe.
Because not everybody can dribble like Ronaldo or Messi, not everybody can serve like Serena Williams; not everybody can grind like Pedro Barros or Andy Mac, not everybody can surf Pipeline like Gerry Lopez or Kelly Slater, not everybody can write like David Ogilvy or Dan Kennedy.
So, don’t feel bad if you can’t do it, it takes time to become a copywriter, more time to be a decent copywriter and a lifetime to be an expert at copywriting…
Of course, if you are an entrepreneur trying to do it yourself but can’t, maybe because you don’t have the time to do it, you can always hire a copywriter.
But that does not mean you – at least – can try to do it.
That is why I have gathered these resources that will help you:
- learn about writing
- refine your writing
- follow the trends of the industry
So, this article is both for aspiring copywriters and full-fledged copywriters.
Why would you must have these copywriting resources?
If you want to run a worthwhile, gratifying and fun-filled occupation as a copywriter, you want to keep these resources handy.
Thanks to these resources, you will be able to
- focus on what matters at the moment
- write captivating content on a consistent basis
- turbocharge your productivity and output
- get more clients for work
- manage your customers’ social media campaigns
- create simple images for your posts
- help your clients with resourceful infographics for their activities
One thing for sure, thanks to these tips, resources and tools handy, your copywriting business will never be the same again.
Start by getting your writing at level “expert” all the time
Some people think that the more they produce, the more they make money. Let’s say you make $100 per assignments and you write 10 assignments per day, that’s $1,000 per day. Wow, that’s a lot of money.
But now let’s say you only write one text per day, but you charge $1,000 for it.
What would you prefer?
Of course, most people would take the one gig at $1,000.
But can they really write at a quality level to charge $1,000 for a couple of hundred words?
Sure, almost anybody can write 10 texts a day, but what would be the tradeoff? Quality?
Because let’s get serious, if you write 10 texts a day, you’re gonna spend 40mn per text. Do you really think you can write a powerful 400-word text in 40mn?
Can you even write a convincing 400-word copy at all?
That’s when quality vs. quantity comes into action.
And to write a quality paper, you need to know how to write.
Not only a super polished text takes more time to write, but also more skills.
So, before we can name ourselves writers or even copywriters, let’s start by learning how to write.
Here are the best resources for that, in no particular order:
Get your grammar in check
First of all, I love the motto: “one must first know the rules to break them.” Too many people start writing maladroitly and unsatisfactorily and then declare that their obtuse writing is a style of their own before saying that the world doesn’t understand them because they are so brilliant.
Truth is, you create your own writing style after decades of writing. After you have mastered the skills of writing like others. After you know the usage and principles of composition. You can’t start your career by violating the rules and pass for someone who’s other than ludicrous.
Writing effective, convincing, and powerful copy is a strenuous burden for most people. So, next time you want to write decently, start by reading the online edition of E.B. White & J.K Strunk’s book “The Elements of Style.”
William Strunk, Jr. first used his own book, The Elements of Style, in 1919 for his English 8 course at Cornell University. The book was published in 1935 by Oliver Strunk and is still as vibrant in 2019 (that’s ONE HUNDRED YEARS after publication).
With the Strunk-White book, you’ll be able to develop powerful writing skill that will last a lifetime.
One way to get good at writing is through the use of a guide which you can always refer to at all times. Use this guide, and your grammar and writing will skyrocket.
Writing and Copywriting are two completely different beasts. Of course, if you don’t know what copywriting is, or if you never tried to write a sales copy, you’ll think anybody can write a powerful facebook ad.
But a lot of people declare themselves as Copywriters because it is lucrative. It’s also compelling and revealing. It’s also financially rewarding because if you’re damn good at copywriting, you become a highly sought-after commodity.
Thanks to this Copywriting guide by the Copyblogger team, you’ll be able to put a foot ahead of other writers in the business and win the race.
As Mignon Fogarty (the founder of Grammar Gil) says; “the vast rules of grammar are wonderful fodder for lifelong study.” The English language (and actually ALL languages) are live organism. They change with time. And because they change, we need someone to keep the change tally.
That’s why this web resource should be your “go-to” website. It contains resources and materials on the correct use of grammar. One amazing feature of this tool is that Migon uses humor and everyday examples to drive home her points.
It’s really resourceful and it should be on your resource list to check out regularly thanks to its frequent updates.
In this awesome resource, you’ll find a series of informational articles and books on the correct usage of the English language. It’ll definitively help you to update your know-how of writing, and how to do it effortlessly.
I should have started with the basics, but I assumed you knew your grammar. If it’s not the case, no worries Daily Grammar has 440 lessons and 88 quizzes. Lessons 1-90 cover the eight parts of speech, which are verbs, nouns, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. Lessons 91-300 cover the parts of the sentence, such as appositives, predicate nominatives, direct objects, prepositional phrases, clauses, and verbals. Lessons 301-440 cover the mechanics of grammar, which is also known as capitalization and punctuation.
Refine your copy
I like the word editing. For most, editing means enhancing. For me, editing means removing, cutting, erasing, deleting. I love having a big pair of scissors and removing redundant or insignificant words from my copy.
Remember that people don’t read. They don’t have time, and they don’t like it.
So, whatever you write, you need to make it as short as possible.
For example, I am always frustrated when I see people writing about their products: “With this software, you’ll be able to automatically uncover any potential errors, like grammar, word choice, spelling, fluency, conciseness, punctuation, and style mistakes when writing.”
If you are a real copywriter, just write: “This app finds all errors: grammar, word choice, spelling, punctuation, style & automatically corrects them. ”
See what I mean?
Not only the 2nd sentence is half the length, but’s it’s also more precise…
Again, there are a plethora of apps and resources on the net that you can use to edit your copy. Let’s start with the one I love most:
There you go! The sentence above is a description of Grammarly. This app was first released about 9 years ago to enhance any text in English.
Grammarly finds all errors: grammar, word choice, spelling, punctuation, style & automatically corrects them, on the go.
I use Grammarly for EVERYTHING. Even when I write a simple short post on Facebook, Grammarly is my favorite tool-to-go, and I always have an open tab on my screen.
Thanks to ProWritingAid, you’ll be able to edit faster, fix style issues, eliminate errors, and learn as you edit. Even though it’s a paid tool, it also has a free version which allows you to edit 500 words at a time online, good enough for most blog-posts.
It’s also available in Microsoft Word, Google Chrome, Google Docs, and so on but unfortunately, plagiarism is not included in the package.
Whereas one of the problems of Grammarly and Pro-Writing is that they are paid app, Hemingway is free. Of course, being free, Hemingway doesn’t have all of Grammarly features, especially plagiarism which is included as a basic feature. For example, you can’t check texts like this one which is over 50,000 words long. If you have the paid version of Grammarly, you don’t need Hemingway, but if you write occasionally and you just need to check small copy, say from 20 to 500 words, Hemingway should be good enough.
Just copy-paste the article you want to edit inside the window, and you’ll start editing instantly.
As a test of Hemingway performance, I took the Hemingway chapter that I had previously edited in Grammarly and pasted it into the Hemingway app.
On the positive side, I was able to:
- reduce its readability from 6 (not bad) to 5 (wow, excellent)
- reduce the “very-hard-to-read” sentence from 1 to 0
- reduce the “hard-to-read” sentences from 1 to 0
- eliminate all use of passive voice
On the negative side, I had to get rid of 2 concepts, the phrases are shorter and thus the text is not flowing as smoothly (there are a lot of stop-and-goes). It also took me 10mn to enhance a 150-word text. Given that this whole article is 50,000 words it would take me about 55 hours of work to enhance the readability by 1 point…
I would definitively recommend Hemingway, but only fort short texts, like social media posts, ads, short form landing pages but probably not for long articles.
Here is the result below after the Hemingway exercise. Let me know if the enhancements were worth 10 extra minutes…
Hemingway (After editing)
No, it’s not the writer of “The Old Man And The Sea” but an app for writers.
One of the problems of Grammarly and Pro-Writing is that you need to subscribe, but Hemingway is free. Of course, being free, Hemingway doesn’t have all of Grammarly features. For example, it doesn’t include plagiarism (included as a basic feature for Grammarly). Nor can you check texts like this one which is over 50,000 words long. If you have the paid version of Grammarly, you don’t need Hemingway. But if you write occasionally and you just need to check small copy, Hemingway should be good enough.
Copy-paste your text inside Hemingway’s editing window. You’ll start editing right away.
So, 1 checker is here for you.
Thanks to 1 Checker, you will be able to update your spelling and grammar, enhance text readability, make a professional impression with natural writing, and so on.
Above all, it is absolutely free to use this tool.
Readability Score Resources for writers
#11. Readability Score (Readable.Io)
If you are using Grammarly, the basic readability score is enclosed, otherwise, you need an extra tool for that. But no sweat, most readability apps are free, except this one. Although Readable.Io has a free version which is available for all, its PRO version has more features such as keyword analysis, content analysis, Email marketing scoring, and so much more. But again, you get what you pay for. If you are an occasional writer, a free app will suffice.
But I sometimes write up to 1 million words in a week (it’s easy to do, this text alone is 50,000 words long), so I use paid tools because they are more efficient…
A readability score is a computer-calculated index which tells you what level of education is needed to quickly and easily read a text. The score identifies a grade level corresponding to the number of years of education a person has had.
For example, according to readable.io, this text (the while 50,000-word-text) has a Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level of 8.3, which is equivalent to a 10th grade. The Flesch Reading Ease is around 60.4 and the total score is B. (see readability graph)
This score is much too high for regular readers, or for an ecommerce website. For example, there are too many long words, too many long and complex sentence and the vocabulary is not basic enough. But since I assume that you are copywriters too, I guess you are able to understand what I am talking about, so I took some liberties with the readability… .
If I were to write for an eCom website, I would need to lower my Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level below 5, that’s 3.5 points lower than the current score, and only a readability app would be able to help me with that.
Analyze My Writing is a free online text content and readability analyzer. Just paste your text into the window and get a wealth of information about your text including:
– word count
– lexical density
– character count
– passive voice
– sentence length
– cloze test
You can analyze as many texts as you like, and the texts you analyze can be as long as your browser and system can handle.
They also offer support for how to use and interpret almost every text statistic our website offers.
Analyse my writing also has articles on how to interpret readability and lexical density. What’s more, you may find ideas and examples which apply the tools available on this website.
To give you an example, here is a test with one copywriting landing page that I wanted to analyze. One of the results really show visually what words are the more important in the text. All of them are related to writing, and marketing.
The Tone Analyzer is based on IBM Watson Developer Cloud. It uses linguistic analysis to detect and interpret emotional, social, and language cues found in the text. Note: Make sure that you look at the sentence level to see what words it points out.
When I analyzed the same Copywriting Landing Page as above, the analyzer painted most sentences in blue for overwhelmingly “Analytical” which satisfied my ego because that’s exactly the emotion I wanted to convey.
Bizarrely, the analyzer also found that “Joy” was the 2nd strongest emotion of my text. If you are have written any text, try this tool. Even if you are not a professional writer, you’ll be surprised to see what emotions transcend in your text.
iwl.me analyzes your word choice and writing style and compares them with those of famous writers.
This little tool, I Write Like is pretty funny and gave me a big boost of confidence when after analyzing the same Copywriting Landing Page, it said I write like “Arthur C. Clarke”, a British science fiction author, inventor, and futurist, famous for his short stories and novels, among them 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), and as a host and commentator in the British television series Mysterious World. That is actually is pretty consistent with the previous analysis which found my writing was analytical…
How to be aware of the latest industry news and trends
OK, now you know how to write with style and you know how to adapt your style to your audience. That’s a good start! But that’s not enough. You still need to be fluent in Content marketing, SEO, social media marketing, and inbound marketing.
Notice that I say “fluent” and not “expert”?
As a copywriter, you need to understand the underlying changing trends of marketing. You also need to understand the techniques and what they need to be used for.
For example, did you know that there are over 10 different styles of Landing Pages? From short ones to Long Ones
Do you know when using a short page and a long page?
Of course, to be up-to-date, you need to read my posts on MyAdgency.Com, but also a bunch of other ones.
In this hard world, knowing how to write is not enough. Not only you need to learn how to write like a ci\opywriter, but you also need to learn how to be a good marketer.
Of course, no one can market alone in front of a computer screen. You always need to find out how the others are doing it. That’s when you need this resource, a “go-to” blog for everything related to Content Marketing.

However, if you write white papers, cases studies, books you definitively need this tool.

Practice writing on a safe place
In 1962 word golfer champion Gary Player wrote a book “Gary Player’s Golf Secrets.” This book was memorable on several levels, but especially since one of the quotes was: “I found out that the more I practice, the luckier I get.”

Practicing every day will make you more confident with your writing, and make you the “go-to” freelance writer for clients’ projects.
One major problem most freelance writers face with practice is doing it the right way; having an accountability-check that keeps them on their toes.

#24. 750 Words
750 words represent 3 pages of text. That’s because the standard in the profession is 250 words per page.
Writing 250 words every day is not that easy, but almost any writer, whatever their level, can do.
Of course, writing 500 words every day is more difficult.
But writing 750 every day seems like training for a marathon daily.
And guess what? Marathon runners train every day for an average of 13 miles. That’s why they can run the dreaded 26 miles when needed. They are prepared.
And that’s why 750 words was invented. To give you a safe yet accountable space to train. 750 words is not about style, it’s not about grammar, punctuation, style, clarity or conciseness.

You’ll also actively engage with fellow writers, so you won’t feel alone.

The same goes for all other social media platforms.
