Each copywriter has its own set of services and programs for different tasks. Some programs for the copywriter are simply necessary, others add comfort and speed up the work at times. There will be no listing of text editors and instructions on Skype as a means of communication copywriter.
I offer my "gold list" for copywriting, proven in the work. For convenience, I share all the services for copywriters by section. Attention: the article is large, there are many links. Go!

Both programs are free, run on Windows, Linux and MacOS.
- paid program for collecting key requests with rich functionality. Here you can collect absolutely all thematic keys in Yandex, Google, identify the frequency of requests in different occurrences. I especially like the fact that you can see what keys competitors are promoting their main pages. Supports proxy and anti-gay service. It is convenient to upload data to Excel for further processing.
- a free truncated version of the Key collector, but even its functionality is enough for parsing key requests. The interface is the same, so working is very convenient.
Wordmaster - a program for searching and collecting search tips (which appear in Yandex when you enter a query in the search bar, and in Google - at the bottom of the search page). You can download directly from here. Taking into account the latest trends, this is the most for gathering loopback queries and clustering the semantic core. What pleases - the program works very quickly and weighs little.
pr-cy.ru - to remove duplicate strings. It will be useful when you have collected direct and loopback requests, and you need to clean up the repetitions. Another online product - - even removes duplicates such as Moscow and Moscow, to buy an iPhone and buy an iPhone. In general, there is a more thorough cleaning of search queries from duplicates.
- breaks the collected requests into groups, using as a basis the similarity of sites from the Top 10. In essence, it combines those requests that can be promoted on one page. Very handy thing, replaces the intelligent analysis of keys that I used to carry out manually in Keykollektor.
- - analogue of the program that recognizes voice to text. This is an online service for a copywriter, with which you can do voice input text. You can dictate, you can give to recognize audio or video. Works only in Chrome browser.
- - if in doubt, how to spell a word - just insert it into the form and press the "Check" button. You will be shown options and rules for writing words in different semantic bundles, based on dictionaries.
- - online service that highlights errors in the text. Of the minuses - need to register for the service. Of the benefits - it works quickly, has an affiliate program for individual entrepreneurs and legal entities.
- - a copywriting exchange, on which I do not work, but which has three convenient and fast services for a copywriter - this is the selection of synonyms, spell checking and uniqueness checking. They can be used without registering on the site, it works very quickly.
- - for those who write poetry and find it difficult to rhyme. Now it has become fashionable to preface some articles with a quatrain "on the topic of the day." I must say, I am not a fan of such excesses and used it only 2 times. If you stick to this mod, this service may be useful.
- Textus.Pro - Program for copywriters which is able to count signs with / without gaps, check the nausea and water content of the text, as well as calculate its cost. Mostly podglyuchivaet, but in general a handy thing, if you work with pay for the tools. The author of the idea is a great and mighty Denis Kaplunov .
- Generating the web - a program that I described in detail and step by step. There is an autocorrection (i.e. removes unnecessary characters and spaces), a template check (highlights the place where there is an extra sign or it is missing). For greater uniqueness, it is possible to adjust the length of the shingle over which generation will occur. By the way, the percentage of uniqueness and the number of texts can also be specified.
- SEO Anchor Generator (SEO AG) - program for reproduction of articles. It is more convenient to create a template in it than in the previous one, but I personally find it more convenient to check it for correctness and directly generate texts in GTW.
About such programs wrote in detail in this post . Therefore, here is a brief list of:
- - The most popular service from copywriters. They check the uniqueness of the text, it is possible to edit replays right in the dialog box. Shingle length, depth of check are adjusted. Download for free. Often shows different values for the same text within 5 minutes, so it is better to use in conjunction with the following prog:
- - also free, placed on a computer, in addition to the uniqueness of one text can compare two texts to each other (rewriters will appreciate). Convenient to edit the text directly in the dialog box.
- - is able to search for plagiarism in the network and conduct text seo-analysis. When ordering seo-copywriting, I use it to determine keyword density and analyze competitors' texts.
- -, free, simple and low weight. There is a portable version. To her, I make screenshots for a portfolio, put watermarks on it, if necessary. In general, this is a simple graphic editor, much simpler than Photoshop, but having all the functions that a copywriter may require.
- - paid, convenient, can record video from the screen (if you make an instructional video in the style of "click here"). There is a free period - 30 days, then you need to pay about 2000 rubles.
- - An analogue of Snagit. It costs $ 20, the free period is 30 days.
- - a program that captures the screen or its area, the snapshot is stored on the server. The user receives a link to an image, which can then be sent to the addressee, placed on his website, in comments, etc.
- - a program for taking screenshots of the cloud storage. You make a screen, and then you can edit, crop, save to a computer or to the cloud, send a link to the image or the screen itself. There is a paid version, but free for the eyes enough.
- Nimbus plugin Screenshot & Screen Video Recorder for Google Chrome, but it works fine with me and Opera. No need to download. Removes screenshots with scrolling and video from the screen, you can edit, customize hot buttons, save format - Jpg and Png. Now I use it for screenshots.
That's all for now. These are all programs and services for a copywriter that I use when I write, edit, make a portfolio and draw up texts. If you can advise other programs, or you have questions - write in the comments!
