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 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.

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?

Proofreading vs. Editing

People often ask us if we do proofreading. The answer is “Yes and no.” We do editing. Click here to visit “Avril Edits” where we describe the editing services we provide.

Editing someone’s document certainly involves checking grammar and spelling, so part of what we do is proof the documents our clients send us, but there’s much more to it. The fact is, there’s free and affordable software out there that you can use to look for grammatical issues and typos, so you don’t need us for that.

More importantly, our process of editing is about composition. What is the objective of your piece, how clear is the language you’ve used and how compelling is the message you convey to its audience? And what specific changes do we suggest that you make to improve the effectiveness of your document and the impression it will make?

So, yes we do proofreading, but our process is way more than that.

You may have noticed, in our header at the top of our home page, that our company slogan is “Communication is everything.” Words to live by.  That simple sentence is something we’re very serious about and it’s the basis for the comprehensive writing and editing services we offer.

Messaging

Let’s say you’re a candidate or maybe a community activist group or other non-profit campaigning for or against some legislation or cause. You do everything you’re supposed to do. Textbook campaigning. But you lose.

If you’re lucky, you lost big. One of our writers has a t-shirt in his closet for a candidate for whom he worked, but who lost after two recounts by six votes. That was 20 years ago and he’s still thinks about what he could have done to move just four votes their way. Just four votes. He’d wear that t-shirt now and then, but it no longer fits. Better to lose big and walk away.
