Editing and Proofreading: Every Copywriter’s Secret Weapon

The relationship does exist out there, even in the publishing industry. There are writers, and there are editors. Both work together, sometimes well, and sometimes not, but ultimately very successfully, I would think.

If there’s one thing, though, I’ve understood in this industry of sales writing, ghostwriting, blog writing and copywriting, it’s this: if you can be your own ‘editor,’ you’ve opened up your own positive pandora’s box to reveal a plethora of possibilities and potential at your fingertips. Man, that’s a lot of P’s. Sorry for the spitting there.

It’s not easy being an editor and a copywriter, but one thing’s for sure: when you write a piece for a client, and you’ve captured a wealth of experience as an editor, you begin to notice that the spell checker is merely a formality, and not necessarily a necessity. That puts you a cut above the rest. You don’t stress as much about making sure the grammar’s spot on, and the typos are at a 0 count. Accuracy then comes naturally. I should know.

Working as a caption editor back in the day had immersed me in a baptism by fire where every word had to be absolutely correct. Perfection was the only requirement. I did it for five years. The result was now that when I write, I can’t help but be dead-on accurate with my words, hence not really needing a second person to check the work.

It’s quite convenient. Sit and wait while I get some napkins to wipe the P’s off my desk. Thanks.


Craigslist Is Cool – My Internet Copywriting Services Available!

I’m not ashamed to say it — yes, Craigslist is cool. It’s an excellent way to advertise and to market your internet copywriting business, and Lord knows I’m going to do it, too.

Wait a second…. I’ve already done it!

Here are my four posts (because that’s the max Craigslist can offer).

The “Explosion”

Let me explain what that is. It’s not what you think. No, it’s not the TV dinner blasting inside your microwave, leaving a mess for you to clean. Nor is it a comet hitting the Empire State Building or Sears Tower. This is a different kind of explosion.

It’s the life of an internet copywriter/content writer/author. When things start to ‘explode,’ you know you’re getting the hits, making the mark, getting the rocket and going global and out into space (and cyberspace). The business is booming!

Get in on the action. Join me. You can bet I have the best out there, as I’m telling you the “explosion” is here, and it’s got my name written all over it.


A New Addition to the Web Site

Hello, folks and potential clients!

Just to let you know, I have finally uploaded my portfolio for all to see. Direct your eyes toward the header for the link entitled “My Professional Yet Powerful Portfolio.” There you will find the proof of my work displayed for you to see.

More to come soon: I hopefully plan to offer vlog posts about the internet copywriting you might need if you’re a certain kind of business, plus many other goodies or updates in the industry. Stay tuned, and thanks for visiting.
