Copywriters Are Not Content Writers

by Mark on April 25th, 2008

And I’m sure many of you know that already :)

A real copywriter - someone writing sales and marketing copy. Content writers - depends entirely on the subject matter. Sales letter writers are copywriters but called “direct response copywriters.”

[Quote compiled from two resources - Digital Point and “Writers vs. Copywriters”]

Here are some places you can find some of the best known Internet Marketing Copywriters I know. Please feel free to add your recommendation in the comments.

Good writing!

    Those are good resources for finding copywriters. There are some at Digital Point but most of the contracting out jobs happens in PMs and not on the public listings.

    Thanks Anne - I wanted to offer my readers some resources and let them do some work to find the right one for them… that info should help.

    The whole premise behind Copyblogger (at least at first) was to apply copywriting tactics to content… because content *is* advertising.

    So, to some degree, content writers should also be copywriters. :-)

    Yeah, but the way I’d say it is probably content writers aren’t (necessarily) copywriters. Having done, and doing (for myself anyway) both, sometimes content seems easier than copywriting… might be just me.
