I don’t know about you, but when I come across a poorly worded phrase or a grammatical error in a book or article, my nerves jangle. It’s like a cacophonous note taking me out of the melody—I have to fight to stay interested in what I’m reading, and I’m tempted to grab a pencil to correct the error or send an email to the writer.
Unfortunately, in our fast-paced society, errors aren’t uncommon. I frequently come across simple typos in news articles where reporters rushed to hit “post.” When I come across an error, it makes me question how much I can trust the source. Do they really know their stuff if they aren’t bothering to check their work? Are they a reliable source of content?
When you’re trying to eke out a corner of the web for your business, errors are your enemy. They can force readers to look elsewhere and cast doubt on your ability to provide an enjoyable experience—whether that’s through a service or a product.
Thanks to the gig economy, however, you no longer have to rely on an expensive in-house editor or proofreader to ensure your copy is top-notch. It’s easy to pass off blog posts, white papers, and e-books to a skilled freelance editor who can make your content sing. Together, you and your freelance editor can craft content that shines a positive light on your business while hitting all the right notes.
I have been offering both content creation and editing services as a freelancer for over 5 years. It’s been an exciting experiencing that has allowed me to learn about a variety of topics as I help my clients put their best foot forward.
I’ve written and edited copy for digital marketing agencies, attorneys, realtors, contractors, entrepreneurs, therapists, fiction authors, and more. If you’d like to learn more about my services and how I can help you achieve your goals, contact me today.
