I can help you nail a professional brand

Because even the experts use proofreaders.

You don’t need the whole copywriting shebang. You’ve managed to carve out the time to tap out some blog posts or LinkedIn articles. But before you put it out for the world to see, there’s every chance you’d like a fresh pair of eyes on your copy. Juuuust to make sure.

And why wouldn’t you?

Even professional copywriters use proofreaders (insider tip).

Be taken seriously when you hit publish

You want to build your online presence, but you have to look professional. No mixed up tenses, incorrect spelling or words gone AWOL.

Editing and proofreading services can:

  • Connect your ideas and make your writing flow.

  • Confidently build your authority in your industry.

  • Clarify and amplify your professional voice.

Don’t make an embarrassing or costly mistake.

LET ME SENSE CHECK YOUR CONTENT

If your content needs a:

Proofread

I’ll give your document a final once-over (twice-over, technically), looking out for typos and grammatical errors.

Copy edit

I’ll proofread, plus establish clarity and flow, by making minor changes to sentence and paragraph structure and ensuring tense consistency.

Structural edit

More than a copy edit, I’ll take the bones of what you’ve written and reorganise your ideas into a logical order for optimum flow and pace.

Emma was highly
professional and timely
with her revisions.

We engaged Emma to help us with a final review and edit of a 4-Year Health and Wellbeing Plan for a local Council. Emma was easy to communicate with and quickly grasped the project content. She was highly professional and timely with her revisions. I would have no hesitation in contracting Emma again and would highly recommend her editing and proofreading services to other organisations.

Editing and proofreading services are perfect for:

  • Growing businesses who need a second pair of eyes on their DIY content.
  • Established business owners who need the confidence to show up professionally online.
  • Marketing teams or agencies who need a fresh perspective on a piece of copy.

And if you’re here, I’m betting you want to feel good about your content.

To feel that it truly represents you in the best possible light. You can pick up a lot reading over your own work, but another pair of eyes will always notice something new. Or suggest a clearer, more impactful way of saying something. Here’s your chance to up-level your copy.

The truth is, it only takes a lazy typo or two to impact your credibility

Your questions, answered.

Typically I charge by the hour, sometimes by the word count. That depends a bit on your project. My hourly rate for this service isn’t cheap. But I’m speedy, transparent with time-tracking and can spot a typo at ten paces for your peace of mind. Send me a sample if you’d love an estimate first.

That depends on the size of your job, your deadline and my calendar. You probably won’t need to wait as long to book in an editing or proofing job as you would to have me write your website copy. I suggest contacting me as soon as you can, to make sure I can accommodate you.

I understand things do come up at the last minute…or get finished at the 11th hour. While I do sometimes have capacity to ‘rush’ projects, they’ll incur rush fees of 25%. If you’d rather I took my time with your important document, I’d always prefer to have the extra wriggle room.

I can work in Word or Google Docs – you choose – and with or without track changes. Some clients love to see all my suggestions to accept themselves, while others are happy for me to make the changes directly. We’ll organise it all in our briefing call.
