Avoid the #1 Brand Killer

Typos, inconsistent brand voice, lack of clarity…

Too often, these “little things” are missed by busy and overextended marketing departments. But these “little things” may not be so little…

According to Disruptive Communications, “poor spelling or grammar” is the #1 Brand Killer in the eyes of consumers.

Your company has a valuable product or service, but if your messaging misses the mark or is riddled with errors, you could easily:

  • Fumble opportunities. Mistakes turn off potential customers and cause you to miss profitable opportunities.
  • Squander time and energy. If you’re spending your time editing, that means less time focusing on creating new compelling campaigns and doing what you do best.

Now, you could find a freelancer from whichever platform is popular this month and cross your fingers that they understand your industry and know how to edit with just the right touch…

Or you could sign a pricey long-term contract with a big editing company and hope they deliver what they promise…

But there is a better way to find the flexibility of a freelancer and the expertise of a professional editing service…

How Super Copy Editors Can Help Your Marketing Materials Look Amazing

Our team of proven, professional copy editors offers combined proofreading and copy editing services that align with your marketing department’s guidelines.

We understand the unique challenges facing marketing departments like yours. We also understand just how important it is for all of your content to be not just grammatically correct and error-free, but also clear, engaging, and tailored to your target audience.

And the fresh set of eyes you’ll get when you work with an outside copy editor means a new perspective and original feedback on your marketing materials.

Below are just a few examples of items we regularly copy edit and proofread for marketing departments:

Why Work With Super Copy Editors?

Not all copy editing services are created equal. Here’s how we stand out from other vendors.

Never Again Miss a Deadline
If we don’t deliver it on time, you don’t have to pay for it—simple. For you, that means no more delays, no more blown deadlines, and no more struggling just to catch up.
Reduce Headaches and Save Money
Get all the benefits of a freelance team (flexibility, affordability), PLUS all the perks of an in-house staff (knowledgeable, aligned with your team, deadline-driven).
It’s Still Your Writing (Only Better)
We take pride in getting to know each of our clients so we can offer thoughtful edits that truly align with the needs of your audience and your organization.
Consistency You Can Rely On
If there’s no existing style sheet, we can develop a custom one for you. That means one consistent style across all of your marketing materials, no matter the writer or editor.
Big-Picture Editing Beyond Just Typos

Of course, proper spelling and punctuation are key for any written materials. But much more is required for creating high-converting, engaging, and successful marketing content. That’s why we also evaluate your copy on word choice, consistency, conciseness, sentence structure, basic logic and clarity, and more.

Avoid Freelancer or Costly Hiring Headaches

While freelancers offer flexibility when it comes to proofreading services, their loose contract terms mean you’re exposed to the risk of them flaking out at any point—leaving your marketing department stranded and scrambling to meet deadlines.

But in-house proofreaders can be just as costly. In fact, the Society of Human Resources Management found that the average time spent on finding a new employee was around 42 days. It’s no wonder they found the average cost of hiring an employee comes out to $4,129.

When you partner with Super Copy Editors for your marketing department’s editing needs, we will blend in seamlessly with your team and processes with minimal ramp-up time.

Our standard hourly rate for businesses starts at $80 per hour for most proofreading or copy editing projects, and we can also customize pricing to suit your company’s specific needs. With us, you’ll save time hiring while avoiding extra expenses like monthly minimum charges or hidden fees.

Plus, our On-Time Guarantee provides you the peace of mind knowing you’ll never be left empty-handed as your deadline approaches.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Proofreading Services for Marketing Teams

What’s included with your proofreading services for marketing departments?

We offer these standard services (and more):

  • Spelling
  • Punctuation
  • Grammar
  • Word choice
  • Conciseness
  • Sentence structure and flow
  • Consistency in style and voice
  • Revising as needed for clarity
  • Ensuring your message resonates

We can provide suggestions to maximize your desired outcome for each document you send us: Whatever it is you’re asking the reader to do or to take away from the text, we can help you increase the impact of that goal.

Of course, when your copy has been finalized and just needs a straightforward careful proofread for any major errors, we can do that too—with finesse.

How much do you charge?

Our pricing starts at $80 per hour for proofreading or copy editing of marketing materials. We understand that everything happens quickly and changes constantly in the world of marketing, so we also offer rush rates for same-day turnarounds. And when you absolutely must have something within the next hour or so, we’ll do our best to make that happen for you during our business hours.

Remember, when you hire Super Copy Editors, you’ll get not only highly accurate copy editing or proofreading, but also individual attention—which larger editing services cannot or will not give you.

Which file formats can you work in?

We can handle most common file formats, such as:

  • Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx)
  • JPG
  • GIFs
  • Rich text format (.rtf)
  • Plain text (.txt)
  • Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
  • Google Docs
  • Google Slides

We’re also more than happy to review website text or even videos for you.

Which style do you use?

We can adjust to any specific style you require. We’re very experienced with Chicago Manual of Style, Associated Press, APA, MLA, AMA, and New York Times, to name a few.

If you have a custom in-house style, we’ll learn it like nobody’s business—and we won’t ever charge you some silly “style guide reading” fee, like other editing services do. Once we begin working with you regularly, we’ll even begin compiling a personalized style guide for you so that we can keep everything consistent going forward. That’s a free service.

I need you to keep my project confidential. Can you do this?

Absolutely. We never share your private information. In addition, we regularly train our editors in current best practices for maintaining confidentiality and protecting your information. It’s very important to us because we know it’s important to your organization. Of course, we’re happy to sign a nondisclosure agreement with you as well. We work with pharmaceutical companies and know our way around 25-plus-page NDAs. They’re not a problem.

Tell me more about your 100% On-Time Guarantee.

We believe that Super Copy Editors is the only editing service to offer a 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee warranting that we will deliver your documents back to you exactly when we say we will, and not a minute later. This (and our individual attention) is what truly sets us apart.

Here is our On-Time Guarantee:

“We will complete your project on or before the agreed-upon time, or you do not have to pay us for that project. If your project is large and we split it into milestones (for example, ‘the first 10 chapters by Monday at 3 p.m.’), you do not have to pay us for any milestone that we did not complete on time.”

Do you guarantee the quality of your copy editing?

If you are not 100% satisfied with our work, for any reason at all, we will have another editor from Super Copy Editors read the document again for no extra charge when you request this within 10 days of receiving it from us.

“I have been using Super Copy Editors for over a decade. They are thorough, prompt, and do excellent work.”

—Laurie Robinson Haden, CEO, Corporate Counsel Women of Color


Your Satisfaction and On-Time Delivery Are Guaranteed

With Super Copy Editors, our work is backed up by our 100% Satisfaction and On-Time Guarantee:

  • If you aren’t satisfied with our deliverables, we’ll work with you until you’re happy with the end product.
  • If we don’t deliver on time, you don’t pay.

It’s as simple as that.
