    Writing/Editing/Proofreading & Custom Excel Spreadsheets

    United States - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 3

    WHAT IF the person you hire doesn’t UNDERSTAND your needs? Or doesn’t finish ON TIME? Or doesn’t deliver the RESULTS you want? Choose a safe option—see up front how I do business, and rest easy with my 100% Money-Back Satisfaction Guarantee. Join my other happy clients! I can help you in two basic areas: (1) Writing, editing, and proofreading (U.S. English). I’ll perfect your message to get the results you want and weed out those small but embarrassing errors. (2) Developing customized Excel spreadsheets. No more ugly, clunky spreadsheets that don’t work right or eat up your time. Glance through my top-ranked test scores below for a sample of my skills with Excel, writing, editing, and proofreading. ----------------------------------- HOW I’LL WORK WITH YOU ----------------------------------- (1) Taking time to understand your needs and explore the best solution. Sometimes you’ll know exactly what you need. Sometimes we’ll have to refine your ideas and identify possible solutions through discussion. Either way, I will work with you and ask any questions necessary until I fully understand how to complete your project the way you want, in both the big picture and the details. To ensure that your project (especially writing or spreadsheet formatting) is done in the style you want, I can show you my initial work after starting, so that we can implement your feedback before getting too deep into the project. Before I start work, I’ll make sure that we have clearly defined the project’s budget and scope. But I will also be flexible to make any changes you want. If I discover a way to do the job better, I’ll discuss it with you and get your permission before spending more time than we planned. (2) Responding quickly to your questions and keeping you updated on our progress. If you send me a message between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., Pacific Time (Los Angeles, United States), Monday-Saturday, I will reply within four hours—usually much faster. At any other time, I will reply within one business day. While working on your project, I will send you daily updates on my progress (unless you don’t want them). I strive to complete every project ahead of schedule. If I foresee that the project will be even a little late due to unusual circumstances, I will notify you right away. (3) Making sure the project is done right to produce the results you want. You might say I’m a perfectionist. I enjoy making every detail just exactly right. I promise to apply this level of attention to each project I help you with, while staying within budget. I also love to make things simple to use. Whether your project is a financial spreadsheet or editing an article, I will make the final product easy to implement. Plus, if you later discover any corrections the final product needs, I will promptly fix it even if the job has been closed. For Excel spreadsheet projects, I offer my Functional Spreadsheet Support Guarantee. I do my best to thoroughly test my Excel spreadsheets. But sometimes, when unforeseen operations are performed, a spreadsheet will not work properly. I promise to provide any spreadsheet updates and email support you need to make the spreadsheet work as designed, at no cost to you. And for any project, if you’re dissatisfied, please take me up on my 100% Money-Back Guarantee! (Details below.) ------------------------------- WHAT I CAN HELP WITH ------------------------------- WRITING/EDITING/PROOFREADING: ---Grammar, spelling, punctuation, and usage corrections ---Style and tone suggestions ---Logic, persuasiveness, and organization suggestions ---Readability and formatting suggestions ---Writing in a variety of styles ---Non-fiction books and e-books ---Articles ---Blog posts ---Other web content ---Marketing copy ---User interfaces ---Manuals, handbooks, and user guides ---Business reports ---Other business documents and correspondence ---Contracts ---Legal research memoranda ---Legal briefs (writing, editing, and consulting) CUSTOM EXCEL SPREADSHEETS: ---User-friendly, clean designs ---Protection features to prevent accidental changes ---Complex or simple formulas ---Charts/graphs ---Macros (VBA code) ---Calculators and reports (for accounting or other purposes) ---Financial analysis ---Other data analysis ---Bookkeeping task automation and process improvement ---Dashboards ---Troubleshooting and repair of non-functional spreadsheets -------------------------------------------------------------- 100% MONEY-BACK SATISFACTION GUARANTEE -------------------------------------------------------------- When our contract is completed, I’m confident that you will be fully satisfied that the final product is what we agreed on. If not, you may set your own amount for what my work was worth to you and I will promptly refund any payments above that amount. If you feel that you received no value, just say so and I will refund 100% of your money—with no hassle.
