Copywriting Denise BeecroftHaris Halkic: Hi Denise, thanks a lot for agreeing to share your best tips on copywriting and your background. Let’s start with how you got started in copywriting. Please, tell us more about your story.

Denise Beecroft: I had been working as the Marketing Manager of a large chain of hearing clinics. I was coming up for my 10-year anniversary with the company. I’d always loved working for the company – HQ was in Denmark, so I got the opportunity to connect with colleagues overseas every year, and it was always a challenge. However, a new CEO was about to start and I had a feeling he had a very different approach to the business, so I decided it was time to leave.

I also had youngish children and felt that I wanted to be around for them a bit more.

Meghan Thomson: Thank you for the opportunity!

I was an account manager at an employer branding agency in London, but used to go home every night and write – about things I observed in my day, random stuff that popped into my head; anything really. I couldn’t stop writing. And so, I started approaching people to write for free.

The first article I wrote was about Richard Branson’s exclusive 5-star resort in the Kruger National Park, in South Africa. I’d never been there, but I wrote like I did. I then wrote an article for an expat publication in the UK. And when I moved to my agency’s Sydney office at the end of 2006, there was a copywriting role going so I applied for it and got it.

Can You Become A Great Copywriter?

I have to tell you something. When I first found out about copywriting, I thought it was a scam.

ghostwriter CyndylHaris Halkic: Hi Cyndyl, thanks a lot for agreeing to share your best tips copywriting and your background. Let’s start with how you got started in copywriting. Please, tell us more about your story.

Cyndyl McCutcheon: Hi Haris! Thanks for the opportunity. Copywriting has always been a craft that I’ve dabbled in at some of my previous full-time jobs, though I can’t say that I considered myself an expert back then. Whenever I mentioned to an employer that I could write, copy somehow always found its way into my lap.

I suppose my transition to a focus on freelance copywriting began with the Six-Figure Freelancer. I joined the Facebook community to connect with other freelancers, and it turned out that the group admins were copywriters earning over six figures. I remember signing up for the group, and one of the questions they asked was why I wanted to join. I said, “Because I want to know how you make six figures doing this!” And everything else is history.
