Editing for Business Professionals

General Information

You run a business and have drafted some great content, which is no small feat. Now let me guide you through your editing journey so you can clear up your brain to focus on wearing all the many hats you have as a business owner with style.

If you need to improve your marketing and web content, I can help. As I have trained in writing for the web and have studied marketing practices, I will ensure your content uses client-first language, captures your audience’s attention, and contains strong, clear sentences.

Or perhaps you need help marketing yourself to land a job or a better professional biography. As an online instructor on the art of resume writing, I can transform your resume or professional biography to help sell you.

So let’s get started forming a partnership to help write your future.

Materials I edit

  • Website Content
  • Business Marketing and Communication Documents: your flyers, letters to clients, pamphlets, brochures, etc.

  • Self-Marketing Documents**: resumes, cover letters, biographies, and personal statements

**I also write these, so check out my content writing page.

Editing services I offer

  • Copyediting: fixing errors with grammar, usage, spelling, and punctuation; suggesting changes to sentence structure and word choice, ensuring your language is clear, fluid, and pleasurable to read; and ensuring consistency.

  • Substantive editing: suggesting and making changes to content and organization—ensuring clear, coherent delivery.

Testimonials

5 Stars

Katie helped me edit articles on my online portfolio. Her work added strength and clarity to my content and message. Putting together a compelling website is a lot of work; I am really glad for her expertise, which freed up my mind to focus on the visuals, layout, programming, and other things. It was greatly appreciated, and I would definitely work with her again.
