    One way is to get yourself a swipe file of successful marketing messages, a bunch of pads of paper (legal works well), a few dozen pencils, sit down with those items in front of you, and then start hand copying those marketing messages over and over until the writer's techniques burn into your brain.

    Pay attention to why each word appears exactly where it does in the message.

    And that is just a start...

    First, select a topic. Then, study about the topic and finally start writing.

    I don't think this is good advice for someone who appears to have no idea as to what copywriting actually is.

    You'd better choose the field where you want to write and read lots of articles from this field, analysing them. By doing this, you'll get used to the language and vocabulary, so that you future writings will look more naturally and expert.

    You'd better to point out your interests and read many articles on them. This will help you to gain expertise and the feel of the language which is used in this or that sphere.

    Well, I don't personally think that it's difficult. The main here is to find any platform where you can propose your copywirting services. There are plenty of such platforms, often, they're just freelance platforms, where you need to propose clients your services. However, the great shortcoming of freelance platforms is that you must have a rating in order to receive orders. When you have no rating and just entered the platform, it would be very difficult to find your first client. Often, new freelancers propose their services for free or for the reviews.

    Select your niche, decide about what you will write, search the market, see what competition is doing, analyze keywords and find the ones that have a high amount of monthly traffic, read articles from others, especially from some famous and proven copywriters, see how they structured their texts, how they developed their ideas, which strategies they used to get some of your own ideas. Write as much as you can, start with social media posts, see how people are reacting to it, ask for some feedback and fix everything that doesn't show you good results.

    I feel that the first thing you should work on before copywriting is working out a good taste in writings. I recommend you find different articles from the niche that you are interested in and start analyze them and get some impressions.

    There is no one guaranteed path to becoming a professional copywriter, but many people recommend pursuing a degree in English (or another language), communications, or marketing. Many copywriters also have experience working in advertising, public relations, or as journalists. Once you have the necessary education and experience, it is important to build a strong portfolio of your work to show potential clients. You can attend courses to improve your writing (the most popular copywriting courses are offered by the American Writers and Artists Inc. and the Copywriters Guild), or use copywriting tools to help you out (https://neuroflash.com/blog/free-copywriting-tools/).

    Get some information about copywriting first of all - that can be some YouTube videos. Then try yourself in some texts for no money just for practice. And then maybe you'll be ready to start working - you'll need to find a website or direct clients to work with. As for websites you can just use the Internet to fins them, it's not difficult

    To get started, start writing your posts on your blog, for example.

    First and foremost: you need to have excellent vocabulary, grammar, syntax, and other such fundamental skills in the language that you plan to write copy for. Once you have that foundational skill mastered, you can start to think about the copywriting styles, techniques, etc., that copywriters use. Once you master that, you can start to focus on researching specific topics (hopefully with a client contract) so that you can write intelligently about them.

    If you try to skip or "cheat" on any of the tasks that I list above, you will be setting yourself up for failure.
