Are you struggling to produce polished, clear and consistent written communication?
Whether you are writing marketing materials, a business proposal or a training manual, I can help you to fine-tune your writing by removing distracting errors, identifying inconsistencies and standardising your format and style. Contact me now!
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 so you 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 you could 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. As an outsider, I can 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. This can result in inconsistencies in formatting, spelling and grammar which can distract your reader from 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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?
