    I just came across the following article and liked it, it's called "6 Copy Tips That Sell And 25 Attention Grabbing Words". Here it is, maybe you find it helpful:

    A lot can be said about what a good copywriter will write about depending on what type of material they will be of course writing over. One thing is for sure though, the following 6 tips have been used for years to improve response and conversion rates. So let's the start the show off here with numero uno:

    1. Clarity - No matter how complex the product or the industry or how well schooled you consider your customer, keep the writing simple. Make sure your offer can be grasped immediately. Avoid marketing jargon such as "leading provide" and "synergy".

    2. Benefits - People don't buy based on what the product does, but what it does for them. Convert your product features into benefits that are meaningful to your target audience.

    3. Concrete Information - Describe your product's benefits specifically. Don't just say, "It saves me money". Specify how and how much.

    4. Power Words - Some words suffer from being tired, overused, or vague. So look for more dynamic, specific alternatives. For example, substitute "industry specialist" for "salesperson." Or, offer a "free, no obligation consultation" instead of a "sales call."

    5. Guarantees - Use testimonials and success stories. Stress your company's stability and long track record in the industry. Make customers feel comfortable, they need to know that doing business with you won't jeopardize their job security.

    6. The Basics - Use clear, friendly, personal writing. Provide several ways to respond. Remember, you are talking to an individual person, so make good use of emotional triggers in your copy.

    ATTENTION GRABBING WORDS

    Successful direct-response copywriters have learned over the years to incorporate words like these to grab attention and motivate action:

    Advice
    Announcing
    At last
    Because
    Confidential
    Congratulations

    Copy writing is a great option and it pays a lot. On a personal front I must admit that I tried it with some success too but the work for copywriting is way too less so had to give it up.

    Copy writing is a use of words or ideas to promote your business, it is good but now-a-days various softwares are available so people make use of them to save time and earn more money in less time.

    Copy writing pays bomb and if you know your target market, then you can earn a lot. The best part is that the upper limit in Copy writing is too high when compared pay scale of Article writing. I have tried it and I must say that if you know how to play with words, then it's your ball-game. My teacher used to tell me that if you are a creative person, then you must definitely go in Copy writing else you would end up wasting your time. Though this is not universal truth but it applies to a majority of people. @Punama rightly pointed out copyblogger.com, if you really want to master the art copy writing, then as far as my knowledge goes its the best platform for you.

    I once copyrighted a song which I wrote when I was 14, I simply took the sheet music, addressed it to myself and sent it via Royal Mail recorded delivery.

    Apparently, according to Blue Peter, this stands up in court.

    I never opened it and have it under my mattress.

    If only there was a way of doing this now.
