Copywriting is an essential part of maintaining a website and garnering traffic. It’s also crucial to digital marketing and promotion. However, many companies either don’t have the time or skill to create content consistently. What’s more, article-spinning software and bot programs don’t create content with value.
That’s where an unlimited copywriting service can help.
Unlike using a freelancer, a copywriting service allows you to get the content you need for your site with no monthly cap and a faster turnaround time.
Here, we’ll discuss two major companies that provide flat-rate copywriting subscriptions, Flocksy and Panda Copy, and how they can help you achieve your content goals.
Both Panda Copy and Flocksy provide the copywriting assistance you need to keep up with your competition and engage an audience. However, what you’ll get with each company differs significantly. One can help you achieve even more success when you’re trying to remain budget-conscious with managing all your creative content, including graphics and web development.
While we both offer unlimited content writing for a flat monthly rate that you can cancel at any time, you’ll get so much more with Flocksy.
In this Panda Copy vs Flocksy review, we’ll cover:
Let’s dive in.

At Flocksy, we also offer three plans that include unlimited copywriting, design services, video editing, and more. Our plans look like this:
- Silver– $499 a month includes a design project queue, where the designers work on your projects individually on a first-come, first-served basis. You’ll get a creative team who works on your requests, and you can get whatever graphics or custom illustrations you need. The team is US-daytime based and offers a 24 to 48-hour turnaround time, and some projects come back in as little as 12 hours. You’ll also get a dedicated project manager and advanced communication and update capabilities through the Zapier integration, where you can use Trello, Slack, Asana, Google Drive, email, & more, and our unique dashboard’s Message Center.
- Gold– $995 a month includes everything above and copywriting, video editing, motion graphics, logos & brand guides, and voice-over work. You also get double the output with faster turnarounds on most projects. Revisions requests can also be made through video and audio with the Loom Video Messaging option.
- Platinum– $1,495 a month includes everything above and triple the output. You can also request web development projects, which include PSD/Figma/Sketch to HTML, PSD/Figma/Sketch to Elementor, PSD/Figma/Sketch to Drag-and-Drop Builders, and PSD/Figma/Sketch to Divi.
The Zapier integration and Loom video messaging services make a significant difference for users subscribed to our service. Communicating and revisions are that much easier because you can use your favorite apps and dictate your needs to a recording. We want to make getting your message to the team as straightforward and comfortable for you as possible.
Panda Copy offers unlimited copywriting services with the promise of high-quality, reliable content for your business needs. They provide content from professional writers with unlimited revisions at a flat monthly rate. However, it’s unclear if they provide an onboarding session. You can watch a five-minute demo video that they’ll email to you or schedule a site tour, which they’ll do over the phone with you.
At Flocksy, we provide demos of our all-in-one platform before sign-up as well. However, you’ll also receive a demo once you’ve signed up, too. Your project manager can also help answer questions through a video or phone call. Plus, you can always reach out to them through the Message Center chat or Slack via Zapier whenever you need.
Our project managers are one of our most loved features because they’re there for you right from the get-go. They’ll always be there to guide you through another demo as a refresher or provide a walkthrough for new sub-users. Your PM helps you to keep things running smoothly at every turn.
Also, you can peruse the dashboard as you run projects, send video messages, or just start requesting projects right away. You’ll get responses from talented creatives within hours. You can also use our Message Center to discuss projects with your creatives, including pre-vetted graphic artists, video editors, writers, and voice-over performers.
Submitting a Design Request
Panda Copy has a simple process:
- First, select the right plan for your brand and create a login for their dashboard.
- From there, you can request your projects and check their progress.
- Writers will start on your requests and get them back to you as quickly as possible.
- You can ask a question or submit revisions on their online portal.
- Lastly, a project manager and customer support will be available for each of your projects.
Panda Copy can help with nearly every type of content writing, including:
- SEO-focused blog posts
- Web copy
- Product reviews
- About Us Pages
Panda Copy’s project brief is thorough and assists you in giving the necessary information to your assigned writer upfront, reducing the back and forth between you and them. You can attach SEO keywords, length requirements, examples or references, and comments to the brief that the writer can review throughout the project.
At Flocksy, we also have an internal dashboard and a similar process. You can begin projects in just a few clicks, view statuses, message your team, comment revisions on your designs, and see all your assets and files stored for future use and reference by our team.
When starting a new project, it’s easy, no matter what type of request you’re opening. The intelligent briefs will walk you through what information to provide and give you several fields where you include the important details and references. We also give you unlimited brand buckets to store your brand guides, colors, logos, and relevant files. Attaching them to your briefs is one click and done. These are especially useful when you’re working with multiple brands.
Flocksy creatives can also look at previously approved designs for reference and inspiration, showing them the styles you like.
Panda Copy promises that they’ll return the work to you in one to two working days when you look at their pricing page. However, within the turnaround time section near the top, they state that most of the content comes back in two to three days.
Here, we’ll get your graphics in the same timeframe, as well as almost all of our other services- not just design.
Flocksy delivers projects in less than 24 hours for simple designs. We have a 24 to 48-hour timeframe when you have something more detailed. You’ll also see a timer on each project that shows you when to expect your first drafts. When you’ve approved your designs, you’ll immediately be able to download them and start using them.
Quality of Work
Writing quality is a bit easier to judge than the quality of a design. You can tell right away if there are errors or if the copy sounds choppy or “off.” If you want a sample of Panda Copy’s work, you can request a sample on their site.
At Flocksy, we can also ensure you work with a pre-vetted writer who is held to the highest quality standard. You’ll be working with an experienced professional who understands current SEO trends and can provide quality work that suits your brand and message.
Here are some examples of our work.
Storing Completed Projects
It’s unclear if your projects and documents are stored in the native Panda Copy dashboard. They state they have an intuitive system to help you request projects, but how that platform works isn’t elaborated on.
We allow you to manage projects and reopen any you want from our dashboard. You can copy completed projects to create new ones, update or add new buckets whenever you need, and store your projects, files, and conversations for as long as you’re a client. Whenever you need to download something again, it’s easy.
Moreover, we also offer that same Zapier integration, so you can connect your Flocksy account with Trello, Google Drive, etc., and have your files saved in the folders or cards you determine.
Communication with the Design Team
You can communicate with the Panda Copy writing team through their integrated dashboard or reply directly to comments and drafts from your emails for better convenience.
At Flocksy, reaching out to your project manager is as easy as sending an email, video message, Message Center chat, or Slack through Zapier. You can even give them a call.
But that’s not all.
You’ll also be able to message your team in the Message Center, chat with them in both a general thread and within a specific project, and can send video revisions. All your conversations will be stored in unique threads, so you’ll be able to keep your comments, updates, and questions organized by project or general use.
Loom video messaging also makes providing comments even easier because you can record yourself and your screen explaining your project in your own spoken words, which can be easier for conveying your message. In whatever way you communicate best, that’s what we what you to be able to do.
We also pride ourselves on our client-writer relationships. Our writers, and all our other professionals, work hard to build incredible working relationships with you. When you start with us, you’ll begin by building your team of trusted team members who truly “get” your message and your brand. These writers can provide even better results and faster because they’ve taken the time to get to know you.
And if you’re looking for a different writing style, you can open up your request to the entire Flocksy community to get new perspectives.
Even better, your deadline won’t suffer if someone is out or gets sick because you’ll have a team of writers at your disposal.
While Panda Copy can provide the writing you need on a regular basis, their lack of clarity on how the dashboard works and what the communication is like makes it hard to jump on board with them. What’s more, for a similar price as their top tiers, which you need to really make an impact with your content, you can get a lot more with Flocksy.
Flocksy offers graphic designs, custom illustrations, copywriting, video editing, motion graphics, and more, taking care of all your creative needs under one roof. We also have dedicated project managers, quicker turnaround times, and enhanced communication options. We’ll guide you through our platform and always be there if you have any questions.
We can handle all your creative needs, from copy to video to coding, and we can do it in a streamlined dashboard where you can easily organize all your projects. When you need consistent content of several types, you’re better off with an all-inclusive option. For the highest quality in multiple creative services, trust Flocksy.
