    What is copywriting? Is it copying other people's writing? Is it a form of advertisement?

    I'm a little confused.

    The file uploaded is an example of SEO Copywriting. SEO Copywriting.png
    This link is about old school advertising and copywriting. His book is called Breakthrough Advertising by Eugene Schwartz. Pay attention the headline because that is the most important part of writing copywriting.

    Copywriting is the heart and soul of advertising.

    It’s putting words to emotions and instilling powerful emotions with mere words. The difference between good copy and great copy is often subtle. Several other commenters have brought certain slogans and tagline to your attention, which are certainly excellent examples of good copy. But a copy is so much more than a tagline.

    Ouch, almost all the important links seem to be broken and some images gone.
    That's discouraging.
