Copywriter Today is a content creation service based in Cleveland, Ohio. The company was founded in 2014 and aims to provide small businesses and bloggers with top-quality written content on an ongoing basis.
In fact, the team has grown to more than a dozen writers, all native English speakers and all based in the US. Their “claim to fame” is their “unlimited” writing service, which the founder, Gabe Arnold, explained is modeled after the WP Curve business (unlimited WordPress tweaks for $69 a month).
Along those lines, the actual deliverables are often blog posts ranging from 400 to 1500 words, lead magnets, sales letters, emails, copy for brochures, or content for press releases.
I’ve found that Google seems to value recency quite a bit in their algorithm, meaning that with all else equal, the more recently published article will be ranked higher. Where Copywriter Today comes in is by supplying you with a steady stream of content to keep your site up-to-date.
I know the publish date is something I definitely pay attention to when I arrive on a new site, and when nothing has been updated in a couple years, it throws up a red flag — like, “Is this company even still in business?”

How it Works
With a Copywriter Today membership, you can submit up to four writing requests at a time. The short content order form explains the details of your order and gives your assigned writer all the information they need to complete the work.
The 3-step process is pretty straightforward:
- You submit a content request.
- They write the content.
- They return the writing to you.
Turnaround times are around 48 hours for 400 word pieces, 72 hours for 800 word pieces, and 96 hours for 1500 word pieces. They’ll even tackle writing jobs up to 3000 words, but generally speaking if you need more than 1500 words written, it is best to break the project up into smaller chunks, or request a custom quote for the work.
Orders are tackled in the order they’re received, and between the promised turnaround times and the 4-order-at-a-time limit, you’ll be able to get 11 writing projects done per month if you max out the service. In that sense, it’s not entirely “unlimited,” but still a strong value proposition for anyone in need of that volume of content.
There are no limitations on the use of the work, in terms of the number of websites or destinations you can publish it on, and you own the rights to the content at the end of the day.

Plans and Pricing
Copywriter Today starts at $265 a month, and you can use the partner code VAA50 to unlock over $500 in free bonuses.
At that rate, you can order articles up to 3000 words, with proofreading included. Based on typical turnaround times, you could get up to 11 articles done per month if you max out your account.
That adds up to less than $25 an article, which is a pretty solid deal. (Obviously those won’t be 3000 word epic pieces though!)
For agencies and other business owners who really want to step up their content marketing game, Copywriter Today has added a couple more service tiers just for you.
These “Editorial” and “Autopilot” levels include editorial reviews of the content, proactive article suggestions, strategy calls, and even posting your content directly into your WordPress admin.
Pricing becomes more attractive the longer term you commit to, with pre-paying for a full year of the service affording you the best possible deal.
Copywriter Today Alternatives
I haven’t yet seen any other “unlimited” outsourced content writing services, though the alternative would be to write the content yourself or find writers on an article-by-article basis.
|Customer Rating||not yet rated|
|Minimum Cost (500 words)||$265 per month||$5||$5||$7.50|

Another all-American writing service that comes to mind is Scripted, though they’re noticeably pricier per-article.
One service I’ve used recently is HireWriters, and for the most part I’ve been happy with the results.
