Why hire an editor?

You have a story to tell, an idea to share, a project to champion, a product to sell. To accomplish your goal, you have to get your message to the right people using the right words—words that will inform, excite, persuade, or incite your audience to action.

Do you want your communication to get noticed and be easily understood? Whether your project is a 50-word sales pitch, a 50-page corporate report, or a 500-page PhD dissertation, an editor can cut through confusion, strip away jargon, and help craft a clear and effective message targeted to your specific audience. An editor can help you avoid costly and embarrassing errors and make sure you put your best foot forward.

Don't risk leaving your ideas and your audience in the dark.

"[G]rammar is relevant for all companies. Yes, language is constantly changing, but that doesn’t make grammar unimportant. Good grammar is credibility, especially on the internet. In blog posts, on Facebook statuses, in e-mails, and on company websites, your words are all you have. They are a projection of you in your physical absence. And, for better or worse, people judge you if you can’t tell the difference between their, there, and they’re."
