Badges are coming to ProCopywriters. Here’s why.

Anonymity is great, but the internet’s intense opacity can make life difficult for professionals who need to establish trust.

As a professional copywriter, there are times when you need to prove your credentials, or demonstrate your learning and development.

With this in mind, we’ve been working on a new badge system to make our credentials more robust and more meaningful.
