Copify - The Professional Analysis
Are you searching for the content mill Copify? Maybe you’re considering signing up as a writer? Maybe you want to take advantage of their rates? If you do, you might want to read this first. Because you’re going to be throwing good money at a bad service that won’t deliver for your business.
Some genuinely great business copywriters have weighed in on the whole content mill issue. So read on and inform your decision before you choose where to spend your hard-earned cash.
It’s a matter of record that professional copywriters believe that Copify:
a) Is set up in such a manner that clients receive rushed copy that isn’t as effective as it otherwise could be
b) underpay inexperienced writers to the extent that any work provided has to be rushed, leading to ineffective content
It’s also obvious that the consensus says paying a fair rate for a digital copywriter is a better investment than using a content mill. But there is a bit more to the debate, as we’ll see:
Copify – The Debate
Whilst not strictly about (but obviously inspired by) Copify, my post on Paying Copywriters by the Hour has a decent conversation attached.
Alexander S. H. Velky
Copywriter for hire Alex Velky decided to sign up for Copify to see whether or not it deserved the horrendous reputation it has with writers. And Copify does. Oh dear.
Ben Locker & Associates
Ben weighs in with what could be described as “cheap traffic bait” or “insightful comments on just how Copify have riled people up”. I favour the latter description, but judge for yourself: Copify, Unprepared to sell Cheap Copy?
Fresh from his Guardian Liveblogging adventure, Tom gives us his two pence worth (if that’s taken literally, it’s much cheaper than 2p per word) and raises an interesting point regarding Google. Read his piece on the perils of content mills.
Oh, and one last link. Just for giggles. Here’s what one half of Copify has to say about the web developer who designed their site.
Before you ask –
Yes, MJR Web is the poster who’s replying on behalf of Copify on the above blogs (with his official Copify email address no less).
No, I don’t know if he wrote his own testimonial or asked his business partner to do it for him, but I think testimonials say a lot about businesses. Don’t you?
