An Outsourced Proofreading Solution You Can Depend On
Agencies know that creativity, marketing know-how, and audience research are the foundations of any successful advertising or marketing campaign.
But while your team of copywriters may be downright brilliant, a single error no bigger than a comma can bring any campaign to its knees.
Even the best copywriters in the world can benefit from an extra pair of eyes. That’s why your agency needs its materials reviewed by professional copy editors.
Now, you could go with a freelancer…
But many freelancers are unreliable to work with or even unknowledgeable when it comes to editing ad copy with a light touch. And for some agencies, hiring a dedicated in-house copy editor—much less a whole team of them—is financially out of reach.
Plus, many copy editing services don’t provide the individualized attention, style consistency, and overall reliability to meet your agency’s needs.
How Super Copy Editors Can Help Your Agency Look Amazing
Our team of proven, professional copy editors offers combined proofreading and copy editing services that align with your agency’s guidelines.
We understand the unique challenges facing advertising agencies and marketing firms. We also understand just how important it is for all of your materials to be not just grammatically correct and error-free, but also clear, engaging, and catered to your clients’ target audiences.
And the fresh set of eyes you’ll get when you work with an outside proofreader for your agency means a new perspective and original feedback on your copy.

How We Helped an Ad Agency Save $4,300/mo. on Copy Editing
Executives at the agency knew that a copy editing and proofreading process was critical to their success. But the in-house copy editor was costing them too much money. Here’s how we saved them tens of thousands of dollars.
Avoid Freelancer or Costly Hiring Headaches
While freelancers offer flexibility when it comes to proofreading services, their loose contract terms give them the freedom to jump ship whenever they want—leaving your agency 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 as your ad agency’s proofreading vendor, we will blend in seamlessly with your team and processes with minimal ramp-up time.
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 Ad Agency Proofreading Services
What’s included with your ad agency proofreading services?
We offer these standard services (and more):
- Word choice
- Sentence structure and flow
- Consistency in style and voice
- Revising as needed for clarity
- Ensuring your message resonates
This goes well beyond what most proofreading services offer—unless you pay them extra. 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 most ad agency-related proofreading or copy editing projects. We understand that everything happens quickly and changes constantly in the world of agency work, 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)
- 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 agency and your clients. 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.
