Copywriters need the ability to get their message across in a host of different mediums. Fully revised for today’s practical copywriting requirements, Teach Yourself Copywriting reveals some of advertising’s greatest creative secrets. From planning to implementation, it guides readers step-by-step through copywriting skills for a range of disciplines, including the most up-to-date information on the Internet, radio and TV, business-to-business, public relations, recruitment, and charities. Featured are practical exercises, summaries, and quick tips that allow readers to practice their skills, along with a list of useful addresses.

Teach Yourself Copywriting is a cleverly written book geared not just toward the copywriter but also toward promotions directors. In addition to providing sound and entertaining guidance on writing copy for radio, TV, print, slogans, direct mail, the Internet, public relations, recruitment, and even charity solicitations, author J. Jonathan Gabay also helps the reader determine which media to use for an advertising campaign. Gabay supplements his lessons with an appealing series of copywriting exercises, one of which involves the nursery rhyme “Humpty Dumpty” and another of which requires writing headlines that capture the spirit of the Mona Lisa, a traffic light, and the gum on the back of a stamp. Throughout his book, Gabay reminds the reader not to think of copywriting as a creative endeavor. “You should consider copywriting,” he says, “as primarily a selling skill.” As far as the writing aspect of copywriting is concerned, “in grammatical terms,” he warns, “[copywriting] is often an English professor’s nightmare.” (The book’s spellings, currencies, examples, and humor are all British.) –Jane Steinberg

    Extremely Refreshing and Full of Great Information, November 24, 2003
    By 

    This review is from: Teach Yourself Copywriting (Paperback)

    This is by far the best book I have ever read on copywriting! It is extensively detailed with so much meat that you are constantly referring back to it. It’s not a book on starting a copywriting business, it’s a book about learning to improve your skills as a writer so that you can write great sales letter, marketing materials, and advertisements. It’s a must read for any home business!

    This review is from: Teach Yourself Copywriting (Paperback)

    Personally, I prefer Bly’s approach to learning the discipline, but I would also recommend this book. It’s very entertaining, very informative, and it teaches sound copywriting principles.
