Businesses have a range of different documents that they might need proofread or copy-edited. Many companies try to cut costs by not involving a copy-editor and proofreader in their communications, but it can cost them money in the long run. Paying for designers and printing before proofreading can cause great costs for a company when they need to redesign and reprint material. Likewise, releasing communications and advertisements with errors can be embarrassing for a company and ruin their reputation.
When it comes to businesses, almost every piece of text could benefit from a proofread or edit. So far, we have worked on:
- Instruction manuals
- Marketing communications
- Emails and letters to customers
- News articles
- Instagram, Twitter and Facebook posts
- Presentations for meetings
- Minutes from meetings
Depending on the requirements, we can do a copy-edit for substantial revisions and to ensure that communications have the best wording possible for maximum impact, or we can do a proofread for spelling and punctuation if the content is already top quality.
We can offer services for one-off work but can also arrange discounted prices for repeat customers, ensuring that every piece of work a company puts out has had a final read before release. When it comes to business, we understand that flexibility is crucial. Where some jobs, like proofreading a whole website, will be lengthy and probably a one off, other jobs could be small but frequent – for example, proofreading social media posts before they are released. Proofreading and copy-editing prices can start from £25 for an hour’s work; however, following discussions, we may agree to charge on a per item basis.
