Are you writing marketing materials, a business proposal or training manuals?
Contact me to help you to improve the clarity of your writing by remove distracting errors.
Make a good first impression – your website
When you meet someone for the first time, you form an impression about them based on their appearance and presentation. Your website is often your first ‘meeting’ with a potential client, who, it is estimated, will look at your page for only 7 seconds. A silly spelling or grammar mistake can put them off and make them doubt your credibility. I can help by spotting those errors and helping you to make a great impression!
Sell your services – marketing material
Producing anything for publication is costly, whether it’s an online advertisement, a brochure or a poster. At best, an error in the published version could make your ad memorable for the wrong reason; at worst you may have to destroy and reprint all your material and/or alienate your potential clients. I can help to save your money (and your reputation) by removing errors before publication.
Keep it clear – training manuals
We’ve all encountered instructions translated directly from Chinese, but even writing in your own language can be difficult. As the author of a training manual or a set of instructions you are a subject expert. This makes it very easy for you to miss out a step which is ‘obvious’, or to use terms which aren’t familiar to your reader. I can provide an outsider’s feedback and highlight any areas that need further clarification.
Keep it consistent – tenders, proposals and multi-author documents
Tenders, bids and proposals are often a joint effort with work pulled from a number of resources and authors which can result in inconsistencies in formatting, spelling and grammar. These can be distracting to the reader of your document to focus on your fantastic offer. I can help by standardising your work and ensuring that any submission guidelines are adhered to.
But I don’t have a budget for proofreading …
Which is a more cost-effective use of your time:
- rereading what you’ve already written (and potentially missing mistakes as you tend to read what you think you’ve read)
- making that sales call to win more work, completing some paid work, or even just getting away from your computer for a well-deserved break
If you answered (2), then send a sample of about 400 words of your writing to email@example.com today. I will provide a free, no-obligation, quote to help you to decide whether hiring a proofreader is worth the money. What have you got to lose?
