Press Release Copy Editing

People are bombarded with marketing messages from the time they wake up until the time they go to sleep.

It’s tough to stand out from the crowd and get your organization noticed.

But what if you were mentioned by The New York TimesFortune, or another major publication? Do you think that could help you get noticed and get an edge over your competitors?

Of course it would.

Press releases are among the best ways to get that level of publicity.

Yet it’s not easy—media organizations have a lot of potential stories out there to choose from. Most press releases fail to get on their radar and convince them that the story will appeal to their readers.

Even if your organization has a great piece of news to share with readers, it’s often tough to distill it in a way that’s compelling to journalists.

How We Can Help

Before founding Super Copy Editors LLC, our copy chief, Dave Baker, worked in the media for nearly 18 years, including stints at The New York Times and The Times-Picayune of New Orleans, where he shared two staff Pulitzer Prizes after Hurricane Katrina.

As a former journalist himself, Dave knows well that an effective press release is short, concise, and tightly focused on the core message.

Reporters are extremely busy, so they don’t have time to read through long press releases. That’s why a press release must grab their attention quickly and get them interested in covering the story.

Working with a copy editor on your press release will ensure that you don’t have typos and grammar errors.

But here at Super Copy Editors, we don’t stop there—we also make sure your press release is compelling and concise.

That’s what it takes to get your press release noticed and give it the best possible chance of getting picked up by the media.

We’re Much More Than a Proofreading Service

Proofreaders help only with misspelled words, grammar errors, typos, and similar mistakes.

As copy editors, we go beyond that by also making sure your writing is as strong as it can be. We check for clarity, logic, consistency, and more.
