You need proofreading
BBC News reports that a single spelling mistake can cut your sales figures in half.
I don't know any author who doesn't need a good proofreader. Or three.
Your sales literature, and in fact all your business communications, must establish your credibility. Without credibility, you don't close a sale. But you probably know that, from your own experiences as a customer.
Mistakes are embarrassing. Lack of clarity is even worse.
According to George Orwell, great writing is like a window pane. That's right. And I'm your Windex.
Proofreading is an investment, not an expense.
Let your business team focus on what they do best. I'll focus on catching your misspellings, typos, grammar mistakes, and unclear wording, because that's what I do best.
I've always taken pride in my attention to detail and my knowledge of written English, and all my proofreading includes unlimited revisions.
If you've got a tight deadline, let me know what it is and I'll try my best to meet it. My usual turnaround time is 24 hours, and I work on weekends and holidays.
I charge 3 cents (US) per word, and that includes unlimited revisions. Proofreaders who promise you only two or three reads are slackers.
I accept PayPal, credit cards, wire transfers, Western Union, and even checks in the mail. Pay me after we're done.
But first, I believe you want to send me your document. My email and my PayPal use the same address, which is firstname.lastname@example.org.
All communications are confidential, especially the ones I can't remember.
