Our Skills Table

Hey. This is what we do…

Let’s talk about what you need. Email, call or text us. (Click on the talk link for our contact information.) Our services are priced depending upon the nature of the engagement – and what you organization can afford.

*Including, when necessary, doing the research on which these documents – such as speeches, op/eds and position papers, are based.

**What are we talking about? Well, marketing is about selling products and services. An economic initiative has to do with economic development, on any scale, whatever the locale, and with government policies that affect employment and income. Political initiatives have to do with elections and with influencing the behavior of elected government officials. And social initiatives have to do with influencing how the public thinks about the social issues of our time. And yes, these categories often overlap.

Business Writing

You won’t find “business writing” or “commercial writing” – except books about it – on the shelves at Barnes and Noble. None of it will ever receive the Nobel Prize in Literature nor will Dreamworks or Disney turn a business proposal or manual into a major theatrical release. But it’s nonetheless important to our economy – and your wallet.

Companies, large and small, write all sorts of stuff, constantly, including everything from routine emails to operating manuals to important documents defining company procedures and policy. Whatever the scope of your enterprise, great ideas are still born of words written on fast food napkins and laptop screens. In no small way, words are the molecules of profit, the chemistry of success or failure.

Question… We’d like to hire Writeaway to be available whenever we need a document edited. Or written. But we don’t want to pay on an hourly basis or per document. Can we just reserve a block of Writeaway time every month? Whether we use it or not? To use whenever we need it? Even a little bit here, a little bit there? And at a discount below the hourly rates you normally charge? Like we were hiring Writeaway to be a part-time employee, but without all those extra employee-related costs?

Answer… Sure.

Content?

Notice the question mark in the title to this post? It’s there to make a point. “Content” is a word that is overused and under-defined in our business. So let’s fix that.

Technically, it’s the stuff – the written words and images – the contents of a piece published on a website or blog. We’re creating content as we type this.

Problem Solving

Our primary business is helping our clients solve problems. It’s something we do with research, creative thinking and marketing, by using language to convince key people and the public at large that what our clients are asking makes sense and deserves their approval and support.

For example, here are just a few of the types of problems we help our clients solve.

Political campaigning You want to get elected, but nobody knows your name and the incumbent has an obscene amount of contributions you can’t possibly match. We know what to do, how to work with your campaign and within your budget to help you get elected – if not this time, next time.

Hi.

Email us a document.  No more than 2500 words or about 5 single-spaced typed pages.  Send it to Contact@Writeaway.us with a cover note explaining that document’s purpose.  We’ll read it and email you back with our comments and suggestions.  For free.  No charge.

Don’t have a document to send us because you need help writing it?  Or maybe you’re not sure what messaging and marketing tools would be the best, affordable way to make your point?  No problem.  Email us a description of what you’d like to accomplish and we’ll get back to you with our comments and estimate of the costs and timing.

Oh, and if you prefer to talk to us face-to-face, that’s fine.  Even better.  We can do that over the phone or via Zoom, whatever works best for you.  We’re busy like crazy, so please email us first to set up that call.

See “It’s free.” for details.

It’s free.

Send us something you’ve written or have had written for your company, campaign or non-profit initiative. Something important. Something that you need to sell whatever you make or do, to raise capital for your business or funding for your campaign. Something that is meant to convey an essential message.

We’ll take a look and let you know what we think and how, if we have any suggestions, the document might be improved. No charge. It’s good will. After all, the more helpful our comments, the more likely you are to do business with us later and recommend Writeaway to others in need of writing and editing services.

Here are the rules…

What are we?

We use writing and messaging to help our corporate, political and non-profit clients accomplish their objectives.

Put another way, we use words – in all sorts of different formats and contexts – to solve problems that our clients are having.  To convince people – customers, council members and legislators, consumers, voters and other segments of the public, even lenders and contributors – that our clients’ points of view are the correct ones.  That the products, services or ideas that you’re selling are the ones they should buy, believe in and support.

Figuratively speaking, in the debate in which you are engaged, you want Writeaway on your team.

That’s what we are, the player whose contribution will, more often than not, make the difference between success and failure.

Welcome to Writeaway.

Thanks for stopping by.

If you’re an individual or small business, we can help you communicate your ideas more effectively. If you’re a larger company, ask yourself, “Does it make sense to hire full-time writing staff, for salary and benefits, when an experienced contractor, like Writeaway, can do a better job for less money?”

Take a minute to look around our website. Learn about the services we provide and think about how we can work together to make sure your marketing, administrative, political and other written materials will accomplish your objectives.

In the meantime, if you have an immediate or, heaven forbid, urgent! need for help writing something, no problem.  Just send us an email to Contact@Writeaway.us or you can call us at 443-844-3160. If you get voicemail, just leave a message and we’ll call you right back.

What time are we open?  Are you kidding?  All the time. What’s the point of offering writing and editing services if we’re not available when you need us?
