Want to get better at copywriting?
Practice simple short copy.
It will teach you to recognize the core essence of your idea & frame thoughts that are:
1. Memorable: people will recall what you said
2. Impactful: encourage action
3. Concise: can be delivered via mediums like social
Moreover, if you write it such that even a 5th grader can understand it, you'll massively widen the audience.

Where do you start?
Emails & landing pages leverage this a lot. Write a few headlines. Get feedback. Iterate.
What's the difference?
Example of long copy:
"Duolingo is an app that will create a tailored language learning program for you that's fun & engaging. It shows a series of MCQ challenges that get progressively harder. Within a few days, you'll feel more confident in your ability to communicate in a new language."
"Duolingo is an app that helps you learn a new language in days while having fun."
Interestingly, short copy can take much more time (and testing) than longer text.
E.g. even when writing LinkedIn posts, I often go over the character limit forcing me to go on a spree of mini-edits.
So, need oomph in your written communication?
