15 Copywriting and Content Marketing Blogs that Will Make You More Money

  1. Hi Sonia,

    I’m loving these lists you’ve been putting together this week. Very helpful in grabbing a pulse on what’s going on, and trustworthy too — because everyone trusts Copyblogger.

    I notice that you have Ben Settle on the list here. I enjoyed your radio show with him not too long ago, and I have used the templates he provided from one of his guest posts here. But I can also say that Ben as good a copywriter as Ben is -especially his email writing expertise- he’s just as effective at teaching HOW to write emails that sell. I recommend his monthly print newsletter called Email Players.

    Glad you included him on the list here.

  2. Great list, Sonia. Many of these are new to me. One blog that somewhat fits in this list, is Michael Hyatt’s blog. Since he is the former CEO of a publishing company, he has a lot of great insights about actually getting a book published and how the whole process works. If there is a book in your future, Michael’s blog may be a good place to start. (michaelhyatt.com)

  3. Great list Sonia. As a newbie freelancer, I’m really keen to read around my subject more and I’ve bookmarked a number of the sites you listed – all advice is helpful at this point in my career. Good to see Carol Tice on the list – always informative blog posts from her.

  4. If only I had as much time as I have curiosity and hunger. I’d munch on in all of these folk’s information. I do like Justin Lambert’s site. He has a way of knowing just what us newbies need. Thanks for the list, I’ll take a drip approach and get a good look at them all.

  5. Brian, Sonia & Crew,

    I appreciate this list. You know what I (and possible others) could really use some help with? (Post/series idea)

    Copywriting in a VERY small space, i.e., creating small banners & images that get people to click on the links to the longer copy sales page. Now there’s a real art. I think it is as much in the realm of copywriting as it is in marketing design.

    Love your show!


        • Hi Steve,

          I wrote a book “100 Post Ideas” that’s perfect for that. It has post ideas, the benefit of doing each particular post, examples, and sample headlines. You can get it on Amazon, or send me an email at “sean michael platt at gmail dot com” all one word and I’d be happy to email you a copy. Same with anyone else who sees this comment.

          Best of luck everyone!

  6. Well, this was nice to wake up to…I’ve been reading Ben Settle a lot lately so I loved seeing him on the top of this list, along with many more I know and love — Amy, Justin, and of course Peter Bowerman — having him on a free live call today at noon PST, as it happens!

    Very flattered to be listed with some big-big heavyweights of copywriting here.

  7. Thanks for the mention Sonia!!

    The way I see it, everyone has subject matter expertise on a topic people want to learn more about. Whether that’s real estate, mortgages, a chiropractic business, et cetera. People are waiting for you to teach them… The person that does that best, earns the business.

  8. I just wanted to say thanks so much to Sonia and the whole Copyblogger team for throwing my little blog on this list with so many folks I’ve looked up to for so long. James over at MWP gave me my very first guest posting gig and a lot of inspiration before and since. Carol Tice’s timely articles gave me what I needed to believe I really could make a living doing this stuff. Peter Bowerman got me started on the freelance writing idea years ago, and continues to provide tremendous value with his blog too. And no list like this would be complete without a huge mention of the granddaddy of writing blogs, Copyblogger! I’ve learned so much here, and it’s only just begun!
    Thanks again. Now I’ve got some posts to write…

  9. Ah-ha! This explains the freaky peak in traffic today. πŸ™‚ So cool to be listed against some really great writers and copywriters. Ben Settle is a regular read of mine, and I’ve been blown away with what Carol Tice is doing for her readers and members. The only pain is there are some here I didn’t know about and I’m dying to check them all out out now but it’s nearly bed time for me!

    Love and thanks to ya Sonia and Copyblogger!

  10. Good for you, Sonia – this is a great list, and I see both some old favorites of mine that I recommend and some new names I’ve never seen before.

    Time for me to go visit these folk, because if there are two things I love in the world, it’s writing for money, and money from writing. Oh, and good business too!


    • There were some names new to me too — these were compiled from reader favorites here and on twitter. Fun stuff. πŸ™‚

      Nice to have a little celebration for our tribe. πŸ™‚

  11. And who wouldn’t want to make more money? I haven’t heard of ANY of the blogs and writers you had listed so I have some serious reading to do. πŸ™‚

  12. Thanks Sonia! You are my favorite CEO Chief EVERYTHING Officer. hahaha

    I’m just getting into the marketing side of things and these will definately help me.


  13. This isn’t a complete list? Wow, I couldn’t tell. πŸ˜‰

    I love the inclusion of Bencivenga at the end. Incredible advice can be found there.

    Great stuff! πŸ™‚

  14. This is a great list! I needed to see and visit some of those blogs for my efforts to break into this market. Its a good thing to have a list of sites to be able to brush up on some of those skills. That is always a hard task to do when you are just getting started!

  15. Great list! As somebody who is a partner of a business that is called “Content Equals Money,” this list is especially relevant to my interests. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the reading material!

  16. Terrific list Sonia !
    I love John Carlton’s Rants. His voice is very authentic and he is seriously funny.
    But your last is really the best. Gary Bencivenga is the man.
    To all the readers out there if you can get access to the Gary Bencivenga Farewell seminar there is nothing like it. Pure gold. Ofcourse its damn expensive but worth it!

  17. Great resource as always. Saves me the effort of finding interesting things to read in an attempt to procrastinate on a Friday.

  18. Wow Sonia, thanks. I really love the mention, but I love the the words themselves the most.

    I agree on the contest results. I owe everything I have right now to smart content marketing. And I’m a far more creative writer because of it, too. And the more work I sell, the more I get to create, which fuels my creativity more. Creative writing is important, but if you want a real career as a writer, it’s important to learn to sell it, too.

    This list is great, and I’m really proud to be on it.

    Oh, and it’s also awesome that my wife Cindy is the one who asked if I knew I was on the list. I was in my writing cave (20K words in two days, my new record!) and had no idea. But Cindy has been reading Copyblogger religiously for the last few months because she wants to become a better write. I’m too wordy! πŸ™‚

  19. Hi Sonia,

    Quite A nice list of writers blog, it going to helps me a lost because i’m a writer to. and right now i only scratching the surface of writing all this links is going to help me to move further so thank you very much….

  20. Sonia,

    How thoughtful of you to provide us with such useful links. That’s one reason why I make it a point to read this blog. Those of us who are avid readers don’t have the foggiest notion about where to look for blogs that meet our needs.
    There are so many blogs out there which are not up to the mark, so you have just enabled us to pick the ones which are just right for us. Please continue the good work and keep on providing us with such useful links. We value your input, because your suggestions are excellent. You have good taste. Have a good one and cheers to your life.

  21. Hi everyone! I am a BRAND new blogger/writer/businessperson. All of this is a little overwhelming! Could anyone give me a site, or some tips on the bare essential of blogging everywhere? I’ve done a lot of research on this, and am left confused about the copywriters purpose in life:) thanks!

  22. I might try this 1 RicardoBueno.com. Spot on with this write-up, I really think this amazing site needs a lot more attention. I’ll probably be back again to read more, thanks for the info!
