Whether professional or new to the industry, any copywriter knows clearly that to be able to produce content, he must always read. He needs to consume more in order to deliver texts and items that sell.
We know that there are copywriters in the market who sell their services very cheaply, but I think your time is worth more, and if not, it would be good to invest more in your skills and knowledge. If you prefer video content, you can enroll in a Copywriting course on Udemy. But I recommend you instead read books in the field. The information may be the same, but by reading a book, you can take both useful information, but at the same time, you will be able to see how a good copywriter writes just by reading his book.
We analyzed the most requested jobs for copywriters and chose below a series of books, each suitable for a particular copywriting type. This is because the content is usually different in advertising texts than for blog articles or even fiction. I did not choose a series of books but a book for each useful skill in copywriting. Each skill is bolded in the book description to make it easier to identify the desired book.
