Basic terms related to copywriting

Copywriter

It is the person who writes the above-mentioned texts. A copywriter should master the native language (or the language in which he writes) and have a rich vocabulary.

A copywriter needs to know as much information about a business or product as possible so that he can use it in his text. Writing about something without proper knowledge is not easy and the result is mostly poor. It is also very important to give the facts a creative and, in fact, sometimes a few facts to decorate.
