Do any of these problems sound familiar?

If so, you may need an editor

Report fatigue. We see this a lot, and it’s understandable. You’ve no doubt been immersed in the project for some time. Writing it all up can feel like the last straw, and no doubt other projects are competing for your time.

The good news is we’ll probably do a better job of checking your report, just by virtue of bringing fresh eyes to the task (let alone being professional editors). It’s almost impossible with your own work to spot the mistakes or areas where your message is not coming through clearly.

Moreover, if we do the editing, just think of what you can get on with instead.

Protecting your business from reputation damage is perhaps the number 1 reason for hiring an editor.

We know how embarrassing errors can be. Impressions count, even in an age of text messages and social media. Often enough, what you write will end up being visible to everyone online.

We won’t list here (or anywhere) the howlers we have spared our clients from having published. However, ‘You really saved my bacon’ is a phrase we have heard often enough that we feel our lives are worthwhile.

It’s just possible that while your expertise is sound, the structure, formatting and language of your final report is letting you down.

Hit Send editors are experienced at editing reports. We can help make sure your report is professional, your message is succinct and your recommendations are clear. If you have had several authors contribute to your report, we will be on the lookout for inconsistencies in spelling, terms and voice.

We’ll bring an intelligent eye to your final report and thus help you win repeat business.

Have you worked out what is causing all the questions? Might your customers be confused by the wording of your website? Or by the letters or emails you send out?

Hit Send editors are experienced in editing web copy and company letter templates. We can do this in plain English.

Once your templates are clearly written, you can be confident about sending out letters and emails to customers in future. That should lead to less time spent on the phone – and less cost to your business.

Your tender submission certainly needs to stand above other submissions to be successful. It must look professional, be well ordered, and answer all questions succinctly. Contact us as early as possible in the process, as there are documents such as CVs that we can start working on with you.
