Copify Review — It Really Depends On You

What is Copify?

Well, it is a standard content mill, and although each content mill has its own perks and quirks, they are all basicallycopify review the same idea – they offer a steady amount of available article writing jobs that you can accept, in return for low pay.

Actually, the majority of content mills these days are not doing very well, and business is often slow. That’s because mass amounts of SEO content is becoming less and less attractive and quality content matters more. But that’s a separate issue.

Here is a Copify USA review (Copify UK is probably similar).

By the way, you can get my full list of work at home websites over here.

How It Works

In order to get accepted, you must submit a 200-word article about a topic they provide you with. This must be a new article, and you will not be able to paste a text in the article box (it just won’t work); you will have to write one then and there. You have an hour to complete this assignment. You must also upload a profile picture and upload a resume. You will usually get a response within 48 hours. If you are rejected, you may reapply after three months.

If you get accepted, you can start accepting articles from the open job board. As with all content mills, the number of available articles can vary from just a few to dozens.

After you complete an article, it is sent to the client for review. A big minus at Copify is that if the client doesn’t take any action, you must wait a full 30 days until it is auto-approved.

A big plus is that payments are made daily at 2 PM GMT (UK) time.

So, Is Copify Worth It? Can It Really Be True?

Well, it really depends on you. Are you interested in writing for just a couple of cents per word? Many people abhor such pay rates and would never do it. Other people, however, wouldn’t mind being a member of a content mill if that allows them to possibly have work available when business is otherwise slow or non-existent, even if that work is low-paying. So it’s really up to you. I personally have earned some extra cash, maybe $30 or so, there.

What do you think? Would you be willing to apply so that you’ll have a back-up in case you can’t find other work, or are you of the opinion that all writers should absolutely boycott these low-paying content mills? Let us know!

    So Copify is “not one of” your “recommended programs” but when I go through the process of downloading your super-duper secret file there it is, in black and white – COPIFY. WTF?

      Hi Anna,

      Thanks for pointing this out.

      My recommended page actually used to have a list of my 5 top recommended programs. After I created my 250+ list, though, I changed it so that users can download that list.

      The 250+ websites are all legit, but that doesn’t mean I would recommend them to a friend. Copify, for example, certainly deserves a place on that list — I myself have made around $50 or so from Copify. However, as I clearly point out in my review, it “really depends on you” — not everyone will like Copify, and I wouldn’t recommend it as my top program.

      I’ve made some changes to reflect the new reality — but since my site is too large to go through all the pages and change the links, I’ve added a note to my recommended page that points out that it no longer has a list of my top 5 programs.

      The reason I changed my recommended page is because I thought that 250+ legit websites would be more valuable to my readers than 5 “recommended” programs. The list is actually quite new — the first version came out in January of this year and had 175 websites; the second version came out in February and has 250+ websites.

      I do believe that most people enjoy having such a large list in a PDF version as opposed to an online directory that they have to keep visiting, and I’m sorry you didn’t find it interesting.

      I’ve also unsubscribed you from receiving any future emails from us.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    In my opinion Copify is not only bad for writers, but it does their customers a disservice too. When you a writer is being paid a few cents per word, and they have bills to pay, it’s almost impossible to create high quality content consistently. If you dig around for long enough, those writers who do use the platform admit that their efforts are less than sterling, “banging out” articles as quickly as possible to keep the pennies flowing.

    The fact that Copify also offer two tiers of copy clearly demonstrates that they too have no trust in the “entry level” content their writers produce. I’ve had a few run-ins with their UK MD on exactly that point which I wrote about once here: tech-write.co.uk/cheap-copywriting-the-proof-it-doesnt-work
    He’s a very angry man!

      Yes,

      I totally agree with you. I have only used the US version of Copify, but I assume it is similar to the UK version. The pay is 2 cents per word. It’s only possible to earn anything decent if you are writing while doing minimal research and without concentrating on quality.

      There is also not much work available. I’ve earned, over time, around $30 on Copify. I’ve also had to wait a long time until getting paid for my work, because articles are auto-approved only after 30 days.

      All the best,

      Ben

    I’ve contemplated writing for a content mill before but after reading a lot of horror stories from people that have had bad experiences really turned me off from the idea. I think it’s great that there is an easy way to make some extra cash doing this online but most content mills are out there to make a profit and don’t care about the people that are writing for them. Copify seems to be pretty much the same thing but for those that want the freedom of working from anywhere might find some use in them. Thanks for the review!

      i agree with you that most content mills don’t treat their writers with the decency they should be treating them. Instead, content mills such as iWriter exploit the market of work-at-home writers to pay rock-bottom rates for good articles.

      Some content mills are better than others, though.
