Not All Business Proofreading Services Are Created Equal

You expect proofreaders to be detail-oriented, former spelling bee champions, or lovers of grammar.

But there’s much more that goes into being a qualified and reputable proofreading service.

Naturally, your hiring decision deserves the right level of thought, effort, and due diligence. So are you putting the necessary work into choosing the right proofreading service for your business?

  • The wrong proofreading service doesn’t value you as much as it values your “business.”

How will you recognize these warning signs and avoid proofreading services that are likely to take advantage of your virtual business relationship?
