    I need your help with some research I'm doing on the copywriting industry.

    I want to gather data on what people hate the most about copywriting and use it to create a infographics or a short report.

    There's a formula for good sales copy. Trying to figure that out drives me completely insane. I don't even bother with it. I just hire someone else to do it for me. I'll stick to content, thanks.

    You're right, there is a formula.

    Would you be willing to attempt to write your own copy if you knew what that formula was ... like if you had a step by step guide that showed you what to do - a cheat sheet for example.

    SEO copywriting is just low-paying work with bad and repetitive content.

    Thanks for your comment.

    Mind sharing what sort of low pay we're talking about so as to put things into context.

    Hell yes. It actually bothers me that I can't master it, because I want to. I just can't figure it out. I was actually going to take an $800 course on this very subject not even two weeks ago.

    Everyone says that there is a formula, but nobody seems to tell what the formula is.
    What I hate about copywriting is the clients response on the hard worked phrase just being declined in a second.

    An average freelancer sometimes has to drop to $10/page, just to get business going. Decent average wages are around $50/hour, but to get there, you have to invest a lot of time and patience working with clients and having your work denied more often, than not.

    Big tip.... pace yourself. Do NOT jump ahead. Just do the day's challenges for the day and nothing more, come rain or shine.

    The thing I hate the most, is all the people who think they know how to do it, but don't have a f#cking clue.

    Copywriting is a skill that takes time to master. Some writers still do not understand the intricacies and end purpose of a piece of copywriting.
