Bec Djapovic from Bec Djapovic Communications
Who are you Bec Djapovic?
I’m a curious, friendly, and creative brand copywriter and voice-over artist who gives bold business bosses professional, high-quality, and customer-focused work that turns casual browsers into loyal clients.
What did you do before you became a copywriter?
I was an actor and musical theatre performer, and part-time performing arts teacher.
How long have you been copywriting?
Almost four years professionally.
What has been your biggest copywriting win?
Landing a big course creation contract with MYOB. Fun team, fresh TOV, and great money.
What was your worst copywriting fail?
Not doing a plagiarism check for some work and sending it without making sure I’d re-written the content well enough.
What is your number one fave copywriting tool?
How do you deal with self-doubt?
Come to the group and talk it through. Get up to the desk and do the work anyway.
What work-life balance/mental health tips do you have?
Keep boundaries between the end of the work time clear. I don’t work at nights as it’s unnecessary for me and disrupts my sleep.
Sleep is most important, so I prioritise health and manage clients’ expectations accordingly.
What tip would you pass onto any newbie copywriters?
Get your hands dirty and your feet wet. Start small, always charge something for your work, and ask for testimonials and feedback as you go.
What’s next for you?
Keeping consistent with time and effort and continuing to do good work.
Why do you love TCCS?
The community is very responsive and super supportive. Kate has made the space a fun, real, and engaging place to hang out on the web.
