How to become a professional copywriter?
It’s good if you already have a portfolio. If not, you need to create it. Almost all professional copywriters started working on various content exchanges. It was precisely at such exchanges that they earned a rating, credibility, and found regular customers. All this statistical information (the number of completed orders, the number of sales, the number of positive reviews, etc.) is displayed in the author’s portfolio. So you should first register on one of the copywriting exchanges. Then start working so that your rating is constantly growing. It is also necessary to place several articles in your portfolio that will be visible to everyone. These articles must be written by you. After reading these articles, the customer will be able to see your literary style. Professionals advise to post only the best of their work in the portfolio, but not more than 2-3. It is this number of articles that potential customers usually read.
How to get started?

You are still a beginner, you need to earn a rating, positive reviews. Therefore, you should do your first work perfectly. In the future, your authority on the exchange will work for you.
If you do not want to fulfill orders, you can sell your articles. Texts can be written on any subject. Only not all topics are in equal demand. Therefore, some articles can be sold for a very long time. In this case, you can lower the price of an article in order to sell it faster.
With the advent of work experience, you can gradually increase the price of your work. After all, you need to grow not only professionally, but also financially. You need to raise the price smoothly.

If you have regular customers, value cooperation with them. If necessary, sometimes make concessions to them.
