Do you want meticulous editing and proofreading. If so, I'm the person for the job! I am a full-time editing, and proofreading NINJA! I have a BBA in Finance and an MBA in Marketing. I have written hundreds of papers in my career. My professional background is in Digital Marketing, Real Estate, and Healthcare.
I offer editing/proofreading services at $35/hour and copywriting services at $75/hour.
I can't believe how blessed I am to get to do this for a living! I love what I do, and I wouldn't trade it for anything! You can see a description of my services below. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to reach out. My rates are certainly not the cheapest you will find. I understand that many people are on a tight budget. However, my rates reflect the quality of work you will receive. I am confident that if we work together, you will see the value in my writing and editing.
Editing/Proofreading- $35/hour (roughly 2,500 words)
Many people separate editing and proofreading in their minds. They are not wrong to do so. But I believe that anything worth doing is worth doing right. If you are seeking someone to look at your work and give feedback about how to make it better, my guess is that you want more than just the spelling and grammar to be correct. You want the document, article, blog post, or book to be its absolute best, You want the message to be clear and concise while also captivating the reader. I believe that my job is not just to offer a cursory glance at the basics of your writing, but to truly analyze and edit your work. I edit at a rate of 2,400-3,000 words per hour. The actual amount will vary depending on the complexity of the writing and the level of editing needed.
Note: If you really do just want a quick edit for the basics (grammar, spelling, etc.), I am happy to discuss that with you.
Copywriting- $75/hour (roughly 500-700 words)
It's so easy to talk yourself into writing your own copy. It's the easiest thing in the world to think that you, a confident business person, are fully capable of writing your own website, sales letter, marketing collateral, or social media content. And in one respect, you are absolutely correct. You can certainly write something that will be grammatically correct and tell your customers what you want them to know. But can you be objective? Can you look at your project and know which parts to cut and which to embellish? Can you choose the proper combination of words to make your customer not only read your copy, but buy your product? Can you write highly effective SEO copy that your reader will never even notice is SEO?
I can make your product sell. You can describe your standard hotel room with the queen size bed. I can make your customer want to climb under the 600 thread count sheets and eat macadamia nuts in bed, while lazily dozing off to the sounds of the Giants playing the 49ers on the big screen TV.
I never thought I'd be a copywriter. Truly, it wasn't even on my short list. But after a lifetime of writing, receiving my MBA, and writing web copy and social media posts for four years, this career found me. And my goodness am I glad it did!
I pride myself on my work ethic and my attention to detail. I work with your schedule as much as possible. My only rule is that (barring a very strong pre-determined deadline) I do not work on Sundays. I take that time to relax with my family, read, and get ready for another big week ahead.
I hope we can work together!
