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.

FREE Website Content Review*

Whatever the size of your business or non-profit, you can’t afford to waste a visit to your website.

It’s hard enough getting people to come to your website. Whether it’s only 5 or 10, 1000 or 100,000 or more people a day – you want the visits you get to count. You want people reading what you have to say and acting on it.

We can help with that. It’s simple. All you have to do is email us the address of your website. We’ll take a look and get back to you with our comments and suggestions about how you can improve the effectiveness of your written material.

In case you’re wondering, we’re content writers and editors, not website design specialists – although we’re only human and will share our design comments with you when we can’t help ourselves.

No charge. Welcome to Writeaway.

*Company and non-profit organization websites only.

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.

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?

What do we do?

We write stuff.  For corporate, non-profit and political marketing.  All kinds of non-technical pieces, from palm cards and 30 second TV and radio commercials, to speeches, fliers and brochures, website content, position papers and proposals.

We use language to help our clients create compelling marketing and campaign materials.  Materials that sell their goods and services, raise the money they need from lenders, investors and contributors, grow their businesses, get elected and give their initiatives a greater chance of success.

We write what you tell us to, however large or small the objective, however general or precise your instructions.  If necessary, we’ll even do the research to make sure the words we give you are sound – not just clear, but also accurate. 

And we price our services to take into account what you or your company or organization can afford.

Our job is to help you communicate more effectively.

All inquiries and the work we do for our clients are strictly confidential. Email Contact@Writeaway.us to tell us what you need and set up a video call to talk about it.
