Maybe you’re a great web designer and you want to learn about more about copywriting. Maybe you’re just an average blogger, but you want to sell a book or just write better.
Either way–you could benefit from learning copywriting.
I’ve spent the last year learning about copywriting. Actually, I’ve already wrote a post on how to become a better copywriter. While there are many paid courses out there, you can easily get a free education through many of these sites. Without further ado, here are 10 of the best sites for learning copywriting.
I love Neville Medora. He could probably write some copy on buying a frog and I’d want to buy a frog. While his “kopywriting kourse” cost money (and is worth it), his blog is free. He offers so much great insight into why people buy and sell.

Neil Patel is another favorite. I would also buy a frog from him, if he was selling frogs. Neil works on so many outlets. You look on some random website and there’s Neil! If you’re just getting started writing or selling online, you’ve got to follow Neil.
