Attributed to Ernest Hemingway, this six-word ad was allegedly written for a bet. Hemingway ended up $10 richer.
His short sentence style became his signature as a fiction writer. Hemingway proved to the literary world that emotion can be conveyed through a copywriter's minimalism.
Unlike fiction writing, copywriting has one goal–convincing the reader to take action.
For therapists who've been writing in an academic style throughout their careers, this type of writing can be difficult to adopt. But if you want to write effectively for your website, blog, social media, or advertising, you must develop basic copywriting skills.
To help you, I've put together a beginner's copywriting guide for therapists.
