    What is your definition of Content Copywriting?

    Copywriting to me is advertising on paper - which is a holdover from my pre-digital days. A more fitting definition for me now is writing words that sell.

    Is that what you're asking about?

    It is not a hobby nor a duty. It is one person's skills and ability to create a content which only few people are capable of. A more fitting description for Content writing is utilizing your skills and putting in in good use.

    In my mind content overall is any collection of information.

    Examples of what I mean are books, reports, articles, white papers, etc. They all consist of content.

    I believe anyone is capable of creating content, although not everyone can excel at it.

    "Content copywriting," I think, is a sub-niche (so to speak) of the niche of creating content. The copywriting area is a specialized activity. Copywriting in itself is the creation of a sales message. That can be a sales letter, an email message, a classified ad, etc. The information inside that message is created to sell something and that information is the "content" of the copywritten piece.

    I believe that anyone is capable of learning how to write sales messages. There are plenty of courses online to help one do that.

    What I'm saying is that anybody can learn the skills of copywriting. That does not mean that any specific person will do so. Certainly, if the passion isn't there it likely won't happen. If someone does learn those skills and does not have the passion for putting those skills to work she/he most likely will not become a competent copywriter.

    I still would like to know what your definition of "content copywriter" is.
