7 of the Best Blogs for Learning Copywriting

Copywriting is the most important element of any website. Here is great article on this subject, from www.elegantthemes.com. The author, Ariel, is a Hubspot Inbound Certified blogger, copywriter specializing in autoresponders, and social media manager for hire. She enjoys testing SaaS products, diving into Twitter analytics, and reading Jane Austen novels. When she’s not typing away on her Mac and drinking copious amounts of coffee, she enjoys spending time with her amazing boys. Image thumbnail courtesy of GaudiLab via Bigstockphoto.

Let me ask you one question:

How’s the conversion on your site?

If your ears are now drooping and you suddenly feel the need to go skulking off to wallow in self-pity as you begin to ponder those numbers — don’t.

Conversion is one of those things that just about every business and business owner wants and needs to improve so you’re not alone if you look at your conversion goals and see that the reality of them coming to fruition is a bit far off.

The chances are that the reason behind that low conversion rate of yours that is just limping along is due to the fact that your posts and pages lack that little extra oomph to tip the scales in your favor.

That extra oomph is called Copywriting, and it’s actually much more important than you think.

Not long ago, we covered the topic of what copywriting is, and now we wanted to cover where you can learn a bit more about it.

Copy Hackers


Okay. Time for a truth session:

I LOVE Joanna Wiebe — the main head honcho behind the mighty Copy Hackers blog.

I own every single one of the e-books Copy Hackers has made (seriously, some of the best money I ever spent) and in the first 5 sentences of her book, Where Steller Messages Come From she instantly changed the way I create copy:

You’re not selling a product. You’re not selling a service… [Y]ou’re selling your prospects a better version of themeselves. — Joanna Wiebe, Book One: Where Steller Message Come From, Copy Hackers

I swear when I read that it was like my eyes were opened and I could see the light.

It’s that kind of eye-opening, in your face, easy to digest but totally butt kicking information that you’ll find on her blog.

Joanna’s focus is on conversion copywriting for the web. Her tips, courses, books, and blog all focus on teaching businesses the art of copywriting so that they can succeed with making their online ventures profitable.

16 Free E-Books About Copywriting

If you’ve never heard of Copyblogger, then you’re about to get really, really happy.

As the name would suggest, Copyblogger focuses on how to write great copy for the web. However, much of what they have to offer will teach you the basic fundamentals of copywriting in general.

Although the blog is packed full of massively informative content on writing better content for the web (including some podcasts you might find of interest), one of the best features that they bring to the table is the 16 free e-books and a 20-part internet marketing course.

These books including titles like:

  • Copywriting 101 – How to Craft Compelling Copy
  • Landing Pages: How to Turn Traffic into Money
  • Email Marketing: How to Push Send and Grow Your Business

All you have to do is sign up for their free membership and then read these books so they can rock your world.

I wish I had them all printed as books so that I could scribble notes and dog-ear the pages that I re-read and reference all the time.

On a serious note, though, if you really want to learn the metrics of copywriting for the web, this is one of the best places to start.

Men with Pens is captained by James Chartrand, and she (yes, she!) happens to be a seriously kick-butt copywriter. Not to mention she does web design and runs her own successful business. (Seriously, can I be her when I grow up?)
