  1. You must first master the base. The information style is in demand, so Ilyakhov’s books are required to read. Also, Gal and Kaplunov will not hurt to read. Although for starters enough Ilyakhov is enough. You can apply the acquired knowledge on any exchange. Yes, wages are low, but so you can collect a decent portfolio and fill your hand. Then there will be an opportunity to find a job on HH and even get a job in the state marketing agency. The main thing is not to stop there. Information style is only the beginning. It is also important to learn how to write selling texts. Literature and online courses will come to the rescue.

  2. Do not try to write about everything at once. You can, for starters, try to write an information text, advertising or text for a landing rush or letters. See what you like better. Then you can study on books on your own, but faster and more successful among practitioners-copialists engaged in training. The main thing is that they are practitioners, and not retell someone else’s information. It is good when there is a check of d/s with feedback. Next, only a set of own experience in practice. Counting immediately on … “How I will write gorgeous” – not worth it – it comes only with experience.

  3. Experts say: practice, practice and practice again! It is necessary to constantly create new texts. If they learn from scratch, then attention should be paid to the constructive and style design of their text. *** In the design, you need to adhere to some design of the presentation, for example: background (you can start with any example On the topic of the article, to tell “where it all started”). The main issues of the article (to indicate what they would like to explain, comment on). Fores and decisions (explanatory part in which they report why it is necessary to read this article is the most useful). Prospects, forecasts or announcements of future publications (some authors, to increase the solidity of the text, explain after questions and answers how now it is now happy to live with this knowledge).*5. You can limit your text with 4 above points, but some copywriters at the very end of the article add some surprise: riddle, humor, rhetorical question. Something short and original, as a rule, positive – this addition motivates to like, evaluate the text. *** Style design – beginners with a style often have problems, most write as they are used to talking, so the first recommendation is to improve quality your technique of public speeches. Receptions that can be applied: the main rule: the text written by the newcomer should take place, sequentially, at least three leaves. After writing the text, you need to retell it to the recorder and check which presentation liked it more. Perhaps the author will retell his text better than it is written, then you need to try to rewrite it all over. It is necessary to pay attention to the reason for this phenomenon, perhaps the author experiences psychological depression when writing a text, and with colloquial speech there is no such state. In this case, you can always dictate theses at first, and then recreate the material in the text. Nobody recommends a newcomer to copy the style of famous authors you like, but I am against this technique, although I know that in the global sense many of us unconsciously copy someone. I recommend that the authors always try to bring their individual characteristics in style and meaning to the texts. If there are colleagues and friends who can read before the publication and, even after, the texts of the author, then you must definitely attract them to such expert work – let them say that they liked it And, what I did not like in the presentation. *** Here, this turned out to be a mini-cost.

If you are talking about texts for social networks, then books for each individual social network (each has specifics). If we are talking about selling texts, then books on copywriting. It is important to practice, it is advisable to write every day and edit your texts, just to develop a skill. There are also courses – a faster way of learning, with smaller “cones”, because the coach rules your mistakes and explains why these are mistakes. For grinding the skill, you can still read copywriting blogs, but I recommend starting from books or courses, there the system is given, not individual fiche.
