‘We polish your words so your reputation is never tarnished’

Mel is by far the best editor and proofreader that I’ve worked with in almost thirty years of work. While I was Director of Advancement at the University of Tasmania, Mel Roome very successfully managed all aspects of proofreading the University’s Alumni News magazine, a six-monthly magazine distributed to some 60,000 graduates, and wrote and proofread the monthly eNews that is emailed to alumni. Melanie was my go-to person for any questions around grammar and style. If you are looking for someone to improve the style, flow and overall quality of your writing, or to proofread important documents, then you really do need to have a talk with Mel.

I really don’t know how I would have done this without you. You have done such a thorough job in your final checking. I actually don’t think I am genetically capable of reading at that level so am truly in awe of your ability to do so.

I have used Mel’s services a number of times to ensure key publications are looking their best before going to print. Each time she has delivered and, regardless of time pressures and ridiculous turnaround schedules, her work has always been faultless and delivered on or ahead of time. I would not hesitate in highly recommending Mel Roome for any editing or proofreading work you need done!

For three years I had the pleasure of working with meticulous Mel on the production of the University of Tasmania’s twice-yearly Alumni magazine. Mel Roome was not only been a great source of content ideas but her painstaking approach to editing and proofreading has helped ensure that Alumni remains one that we can be very proud of.

Mel has hit the spot with Hit Send. A unique business that is highly organised and provides very efficient service. Hit Send has provided me comfort and confidence with important communications while saving valuable time in revisiting content over and over again. Great value, well worth the investment and highly recommended.

Hit Send provides a service that is excellent value for money. I strongly recommend Mel’s professionalism – attention to detail, reliability and communication.

Hit Send has helped Blueline Laundry write successful tenders with some of our largest customers which include large hotels, hospitals and Australian Government agencies. Hit Send helped Blueline write tenders that highlighted the core values of our social enterprise business. They worked closely with staff and management to understand our capabilities and service delivery model while also promoting what Blueline offers our supported and migrant employees.

Recently Hit Send proof read my new brochure. The results were most impressive with layout, wording, spelling all being “polished” in the promised turn around time. Thanks Mel; i am very happy and will certainly be back with more work from The Skin Care Clinic

Mel and the team at Hit Send have been our go-to editorial professionals for a number of years now. They give thoughtful, contextually appropriate suggestions that go beyond proofing, adding genuine value to our educational resources and commercial reports. I regularly recommend her to others and look forward to continuing our successful partnership.

We required urgent proof reading and editing for our Investment Memorandum during the holiday period; Mel rose to the challenge delivering excellent feedback and improvements to our document within the agreed time frame. We highly recommend Mel.

I take pride in good spelling and grammar, but when you’ve been looking at the text for too long or rushing, it’s easy to make mistakes. Hit Send is a super fast, affordable proofing service that not only saves you from the embarrassment of errors, but also checks your words will make sense for your audience. Nothing like a pair of professional ‘outside eyes’ for this. “All communication is 100% audience dependent,” says world heritage interpretation expert, Professor Sam Ham. If your audience doesn’t understand you, or is irritated by silly mistakes, you’ve wasted your time and money completely.

As a long-term colleague of Mel Roome and, more recently, a customer, I am delighted to recommend her Hit Send editing service. Mel has a sound professional background and understands the need for discretion, privacy and reliability. As a writer and experienced editor, Mel is focused on attention to detail and on ensuring the message is appropriately worded to ‘speak’ to, and be understood by, the intended audience.

As a marketing and communications consultant and film producer, I have worked with Mel often in the past and more recently have utilised the professional services offered by Hit Send. Mel is incredibly meticulous, highly reliable, efficient and also fun to work with. I am always confident that the finished work is perfect!

Mel Roome worked with us in the start-up phase of Bellamy’s Organic Farms in northern Tasmania. We quickly came to rely on her to edit our web pages and proofread our product packaging and contracts. She has an amazing eye for detail, is a pleasure to work with and is 100% reliable.

Having used Hit Send several times now I almost can’t wait to submit more work for Mel to handle. The service is absolutely top shelf. I have complete confidence in sending the final copy to my clients after Mel has worked on it. The process from initial contact to details of the work and final edit is a breeze. A complete package with high distinctions. Thank you Mel for providing such a high standard, my work standards have lifted as a result. It’s true!

I like how easy this service was to access, and how simple it was to see the changes that had been made. I’d recommend this service to anyone writing something that needs to be right-or even just that lots of people will see it.
