You decided to earn some money making copywriting/rewriting, but you still do not fully understand the way it works, what is the difference between a common SEO copywriting and copywriting and how to copywrite/rewrite texts, then let’s try to figure it out all together.
Copywriting is the creation of text based on your knowledge or studied (processed) material.
Re-writing is the processing (retelling) of already finished article (source code).
SEO-copywriting is writing an article (mostly of an advertising nature), with the inclusion of keywords in the text.
The copywriting / rewriting / content exchange is a place (website on the Internet) where unique texts (articles) are created and executed by orders: customers leave their task on the stock exchange with the specification of certain requirements and the price for its implementation, the performers accept the orders and when they are finished with the article they get paid for this.
How is do copywriting?
Copyright mean the author’s right. That is, if you are doing copywriting, it means writing your own unique texts on certain topics. Thus, when working for the exchange company that does unique content and carry out the copywriting task, you transfer the work to the customer and all the rights to use it (after the text is transferred to the customer, you do not have the right to publish your article somewhere or transfer it to third parties).
In order to perform the work on copywriting, you need to read the task of the customer paying special attention to any details, get acquainted with its theme and requirements. After that, if you are well skilled on the topic, you just start writing the article "from yourself" (so you will save time and get 100% uniqueness). It should contain an introductory part, the main questions of the assignment, and at the end you include a logical conclusion.
If the topic in the assignment is not well known to you, you are looking for material on the Internet or in other sources (it is desirable to find at least three articles on the same topic). After reading the material found, start composing your own text (preferably from memory). It is best to make a plan of the article in advance and carry out the work according to your plan.
To get a high-quality copyright, write the article following these instructions: read one paragraph from the source material and write your own paragraph, then the paragraph from the second source, and so on (do not get stick to one sentence, otherwise you'll have to work hard to improve the uniqueness of the text). The main thing for you is to remember that copywriting is not just copying or paraphrasing someone else's text, you need to apply a little imagination when creating a text.

Keywords are recommended to be bold and underlined.
