Would you like to improve the quality and effectiveness of your written materials? Well then, welcome to Editaway. You’ve come to the right place and this is the article you need to read.
In a hurry? Too busy to read all this? That’s okay. We get it. All you have to do is fill out our online form to submit your document. We’ll look it over and email you a proposal describing the editing services we’ll provide, their cost and timing. If you accept this proposal, we’ll do the work. You’ll pay us when we’re done. It’s that simple. Just click the “Send Us A Document” menu button under the header image to get this show on the road. You can come back to read this post later when you have time… or not.
We get email all the time from clients who ask us, “How much will you charge to edit, just edit these three pages?” It’s a simple enough request, until you consider what we do when we “edit” something.
Microsoft Word helps us find misspellings and points out what it considers to be grammatical errors, so that’s not a problem. In fact, our prospective clients have usually already done that, used Word or other software to fix obvious typos and correct basic grammatical errors. We are not, however, human versions of readily available software. Nor is that software all you need to write and perfect a superior document. Far from it.
People often ask us if we do proofreading. The answer is “Yes and no.” We do editing. Click here to visit our website article in which we describe the editing services we provide.
Editing someone’s document certainly involves checking grammar and spelling, so part of what we do is proof the documents our clients send us, but there’s much more to it. The fact is, there’s free and affordable software out there that you can use to look for grammatical issues and typos, so you don’t need us for that.
Question: We’d like to hire Editaway to be available whenever we need a document edited. But we don’t want to pay per word, on an hourly basis or per document. Can we just reserve a block of Editaway time every month? Whether we use it or not? To use whenever we need it? Even a little bit here, a little bit there? And at a discount below the rates you normally charge? Like we were hiring Editaway to be a part-time employee, but without all those extra employee-related costs?
Answer: Sure. …Go to our Contact Us page. Send us an email or give us a call. Let’s talk about what we can do for you.
Welcome to our“Second Set of Eyes”program. Editing services for candidates.
As someone who is running for office – and especially if you’re a first-time candidate – you live in a world where every word counts. You need just the right bullet points, stated in a clear and compelling way, to get the attention of voters, contributors and the media.
A well-structured turn of a phrase in a speech can make the difference between getting your point across or not, between enthusiastic applause and your audience tuning you out and checking their cell phones, between attracting the contributions you need and not even covering the costs of your fundraiser. A cleanly written palm card or mailer can help you stand out in a crowded field of opponents when being ordinary won’t cut it.
At Editaway, we don’t just put tick marks, red ink and alternative words on paper. We help our clients figure out how best to use language, in all its forms, to accomplish very specific objectives. This is something we do that differentiates us from the competition in a big way.
