78. Writing Copy That Has a Pulse with Camille Trent

“You don’t have to be a lifestyle brand to write copy with a pulse.”  – Camille Trent


On this episode of The Leadership Locker, MarketerHire managing editor Camille Trent talks about the do’s and don’ts of copywriting. Listen in as Rich and Camille discuss copywriting vs. content writing, using data to measure the effectiveness of your content, and why being a good writer doesn’t necessarily mean that you are a good copywriter.

Camille Trent is the managing editor at MarketerHire. A copywriter and marketing nerd, she’s passionate about helping freelancers and creatives recognize their value and get the knowledge they need to win long term.
