An Advertising Copy Writer works closely with other members of the advertising team to create snappy, unified, eye-catching advertisements. The general idea is simply a new way of telling readers, listeners, and viewers what the product or service will do for them. Once a client approves a concept, the advertising copy writer writes the “copy,” words that make up the advertising message. Most copy writers work for advertising agencies that provide services to companies with a product to sell, copy writing can also be done on a freelance or project basis.
