Is 2020 the year to learn code?

2020 is not the year to learn how to code. 2020 is the year to learn how to write. To copywrite.

People read your words first. These convince them what to do.

Coding is just a background thing that’s used to present your words. Copywriting is the most valuable skill in 2020.

In the age of Covid we see the ability to convince people to buy your goods and services to be the most important skill. Once again, your words are gonna be used in web pages, emails, text messages and so on.

I firmly believe that programming is just the start. And that copywriting will lift you up from where you are as just a “programmer”, into someone who actually makes money online.

Just think about it. The titles and descriptions you read on Amazon when you buy the next bottle of vitamins, is what makes you chose that product.

The title and description of this question and answer and the Youtube video that it becomes will determine if you find and read or watch it.

So its good to learn some programming for sure, but copywriting is kind. Learn it.
