editorial services for businesses…

you put a lot into your business. But let’s be honest, the paperwork is a headache. So is all the marketing needed to keep your business afloat. Writing, then scanning fifty times to catch inconsistencies and errors…your time could be better spent. Is your message even clear? Nothing is more important than your image, customer perception. Your message should represent you and your company well. Does it?

editors and writers are masters of words, of detail and organization. We work with you, but also with your graphic designer, ad agency, printer, photographer, marketing team, translator, and other editors, completing your project on time and on budget. We edit and write almost anything, from resumes, to corporate reports, neighbourhood newsletters, to award-winning websites. We make your message clear, and save you time and money.

i am an editor. I make you look good.

what needs editing…?

any report or document you write. Marketing used to promote you or your office, store, agency, company. Aunt Edna’s eulogy.

like to know the nitty-gritty...?

we also do…  websites – blogs – ad copy – bios – press releases – templates – articles – books – annual reports – presentations        – cover letters – legal documents – magazine articles – social media – government assessments and reports – briefs – grant proposals – brochures – newsletters – sell sheets – trade show material – manuals – business plans – email campaigns – interviews – speeches – dictations – resumes – marketing material menus – real estate blurbs   …just to name a few

haven’t got a finished project? Not even sure where to start?

no problem, I’ll create one for you, written from scratch.

what kind of editing do you need…?

like buying a new pair of shoes, there are several options in your size, and all will fit differently. One project might need a complete overhaul. Another could be (almost) ready to print. Another might be an idea in your head, not on paper. The key is knowing what kind of editorial assistance you require.

this is my superpower….

proofreading

your last set of eyes when you’ve done a great job writing, an editor has waved her magic, and you still need to catch prior-to-send spelling errors, punctuation mishaps, and grammar faux pas. I’ll zap your typos before you spend a fortune on printing and publishing.

you need a proofreader to save time and money. I’m your gal.

copy editing

this in-depth line-by-line edit will not only cover spelling, punctuation, and grammar, it will target clunky words, fix tense issues, correct sentence structure, fine-tune phrasing, flow, and tone, and ensure format consistency. A copy edit is, in fact, what most projects need.

you only get one shot to catch your audience. Don’t mess it up.

total rewrite

okay, so writing is not your thing. You are good at running your business, you are not a writer or editor.

if you have something written but know it’s a red-hot mess needing resuscitation, a total rewrite is what you need. A total rewrite takes a piece of work, makes a diagnosis, deconstructs, rebuilds, refines, and releases using your existing words.

written from scratch

stay focused on your business, your customers, your livelihood. 

a writer creates brands and intrigues an audience. A writer finds unique angles, crafting meaningful work that speaks your language while translating for laypeople. A writer understands your strengths and weaknesses, your target market, and gives you a voice.

i speak for you with mutant lungs.

“My business is huge. I need content written on a regular basis, in large quantities. My industry is also very specific. I need a team of skilled writers and editors to get the job done, on time and on budget. beop inc provides it all.” 

“I used to have a writer on staff, but a freelancer is more cost-effective for my business. A freelance editor / writer gets it right the first time, and only bills me for the finished product. No worry about taxes or benefits.”

“A talented web designer lives and breathes tech. Coding, programming, graphics, search engines, plug-ins, add-ons, e-commerce…he’s got you covered. But content is king, it’s the very reason your audience goes to your website; to get answers only you can provide. And your graphic guy, however awesome, is not a copy writer or editor.”

“English is not my first language. So making sure customers understand my message is vital to my business. An editor makes my message clear.”

“I need quick turn-around on short projects. My editor makes it happen.”
