50 Copywriters to Consider in 2023

In December, I launched an article called “44 Most Popular Copywriters of 2022” that was based on the first 712 answers worth of interview data from Copywriting.org. The article gave a LOT of shocking insight into which copywriters & entrepreneurs were the most top-of-mind in 2022. You can read the article here, or see all of our articles in the Copywriting.org Blog.

But today I want to highlight 50 copywriters I interviewed on Copywriting.org who you may or may not have heard of before… but are doing good work for their clients within different sub-sectors of the copywriting industry. There’s a TON of variety, backgrounds, and unique experience.

Below, I have listed all 50 names & a short summary of what they do & something unique about them (not in any particular order). To learn more about each person, simply click on their name in orange to read their full interview & contact information.

P.S. I’m technically not going to include myself in this article, but if you don’t know me, I’m Troy Ericson – the owner of Copywriting.org, EmailDeliverability.com, EmailListManagement.com, & MailGenius.com.

Now, let’s get started introducing these 50 Copywriters to Consider in 2023:

Jason Capital

Jason Capital was one of the first entrepreneurs to write successful chat scripts that help businesses close clients or members without actually taking a sales call. These days, many people prefer texting a business rather than calling – and Jason Capital is an absolute professional that I’ve personally hired to help me with this. He’s also one of the world’s top experts on selling courses & information products online.
There’s SO much talk about AI copywriting right now – but Jon Benson’s CopyPro.AI doesn’t get enough credit compared to ChatGPT. I’ve personally spoken with Jon about his AI, which you can hear in our video interview on his profile (you’ll also hear about how he created the first VSL). It’s really incredible to hear what CopyPro.AI is capable of whether you’re a business owner or a copywriter.
Maria Gudelis has been a student of mine for years now – and she’s gotten really good at email marketing. However, I didn’t know until I recently interviewed Maria on video that she’s also helped write some of the most creative ads I’ve ever heard of. She said that one of her clients scaled from $0 to $10k per day with her help as a rev share partner – incredible!
Jay Beistle is one of the ‘old school’ copywriters on this list – he’s even worked under Dan Kennedy! Jay has decades of experience, starting in print advertising – and now he’s part of my Email List Management Certification Program – where he puts a special emphasis on not just email copy, but also deliverability.
Ernie Trevino has a higher education & a good-paying tech job – but that couldn’t stop his passion for email marketing & copywriting. I recently found out that a copywriter friend of his ‘forced’ him to go to Internet Marketing Party in Austin, Texas – where Ernie began to fall in love with copywriting (and has since heavily invested in his own education). Today, he spends his time after work on email marketing & loves writing in the golf niche.
Cole Buckwalter has an incredible story in which he lost his ability to do his 9-5 job due to health-related issues. Rather than feeling sorry for himself, Cole has quickly become one of my hardest working Email List Management students & is starting to rack up wins for his email clients – many of which can be heard in my video interview with Cole.
Alena made a name for herself by raising over $8,000,000 for Non-For-Profit Businesses via copywriting. Now, she uses a lot of key non-profit strategies to write high-converting copy for For-Profit Businesses. Some of the ideas she mentioned on our video interview were absolute gold for any business owner or copywriter.
Robert Wittstock is from Scottsdale, Arizona – and writes for just about any niche in the desert – especially golf, solar, conservative lists, and live events. He also prides himself on writing compliant copy that both him and his clients can feel great about. He’s been a hard working student of mine for a couple years now and has grown a LOT during that time.

Steve’s work is so good that he’s continued to work with roughly 50 clients over the years that keep coming back, including countless 7 figure entrepreneurs.

Rob Palmer is another veteran of the copywriting world, having written copy for Apple – and even one of the very first VSLs – a VHS tape that he wrote for in-person sales meetings in the 1990s! He also wrote what was potentially the first blog site. Even better, his sales numbers over the last 40 years are incredible – Rob mentioned that he generated $500 million in sales for Belron over a 10 year period – and that’s just ONE client!
Phil Balliet’s wife read about copywriting during her maternity leave & told Phil all about it, since she knew he had a passion for writing.
