44 Most Popular Copywriters of 2022

Since launching Copywriting.org in December 2022, I’ve interviewed over 700 copywriters from beginners to A-Listers.

My favorite question is always, “Who is your favorite copywriter?”

A lot of people debate which copywriters are the most popular or relevant. Some people mention oldschool copywriters like Eugene Schwartz or Gary Halbert… While others mention modern copywriters like Stefan Georgi or Alex Cattoni. To settle the debate, below are the most popular copywriters of 2022, based on 700+ answers to the question, “Who is your favorite copywriter?”

Many interviewees had multiple favorites. I also included mentions throughout the other interview questions – since that also signifies that a copywriter is relevant. In total, there were 1,260 mentions across 712 interviews over the first 14 days after site launch. The 44 copywriters below received 5 mentions or more. Below these 44, you can also see everyone else who got 1 to 4 mentions. This way, everyone who got mentioned at least once is included. Mentions of oneself were discarded.

Also, please keep in mind that this is strictly based on popularity according to Copywriting.org’s interview data. Although, popularity is largely influenced by talent, as well as whether or not you teach copywriting to others. Make sure to congratulate your friends & mentors who made it into this article – it’s no small feat! Mentions were likely also influenced by whether or not each of these copywriters completed & shared their own interview with their own audience. Which again, is a key factor in increasing relevance & popularity.

Anyway, check out the full article below! When you’re done, don’t forget to get interviewed on Copywriting.org if you haven’t already. Then share your interview with your network so you are more likely to rank higher before V2 of this article is released in 2023.
