Why use a freelance copy editor?

Nobody is perfect. No matter how many times we read back through our own work, errors can and often will creep through.

Most of us have been there – we get to a point where company phrasing and messaging is so ingrained that autopilot kicks in and our guard drops. This is where the services of an external freelance copy editor can be invaluable.

Even the smallest of errors can be picked up on by readers and customers and leave the wrong kind of lasting impressions. By making use of freelance copy editing services, you can be sure that your content reaches your audience in a clean, readable and polished state.

Beyond proofing content for basic mistakes and readability issues, freelance copy editors can offer a non-biased second opinion, adding a fresh approach to a piece of content to help take it to the next level.

Our approach to copy editing

Whether it’s a simple proofread or comprehensive edit of a piece of content, we also adopt a simple and consistent approach to our freelance copy editing services. The basics are important and noticed. It’s critical to get them right every time.

As freelance copy editors, we are backed up by well over a decade of collective experience. From proofing and editing article submissions from outside writers during our time as trade publication editors, to reviewing each other’s work daily, we have become experienced sticklers for grammar and readability.

Our job as freelance copy editors, above all, is to ensure your content masters those basics – clean, readable and compelling copy that will resonate with your audience and leave a positive lasting impression.

If you are after a second opinion from a seasoned B2B writer and editor, we will provide honest feedback and make suggestions based on our own experience of what works and what doesn’t. While we will never claim to know your brand better than you, we do know the fundamentals of good writing. Together, we can uplift your content output.

What types of content do we edit?

If your brand produces written content of any kind, we are here to provide freelance copy editing support. Some typical forms of content we commonly proof and edit include:
Thought leadership articles
Award entries
Corporate reports (e.g. finance, ESG)
