Copyediting

Whether your project is a website, a collection of blog posts, or a thought-leadership article, copyediting will get your writing into shape.

What is copyediting?

Copyediting provides the finishing touches to your content, eliminating any mistakes before you launch or publish your project. A good copyeditor will correct your spelling, punctuation, and grammar while improving clarity, readability, and style.

Why is copyediting important?

Copyediting spotlights errors like misspelt names, misused words, and inconsistent arguments – any final blips that need polishing to ensure a professional finish.

What makes copyediting marketing materials different?

When it comes to copyediting materials for your business, there are a few additional things a marketing copyeditor can help you with:

  • Integrating the keywords you’d like to rank for.
  • Inserting h tags, alt tags, and metadata.
  • Ensuring each piece opens with a compelling hook and lede.
  • Making sure each piece closes with a strong call to action.

I can edit marketing collateral according to your house style, AP style, or New Hart’s Rules, which is the style I studied with the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.

I can also draw up a style sheet if you don’t have one yet.

How will you receive your edits?

I’ll use Track Changes to make your edits in Microsoft Word or Google Docs and will use the comments feature to make additional notes if necessary.
