“If you don’t care about your writing, why should I care about you and your business?”

I read an interesting quote today: “If you don’t care about your writing, why should I care about you and your business?” Obviously, this quote struck home to me.  You can take the word business and replace it with many other words: resume, newsletter, email, blog…etc.

Practically every day I see brochures, website copy, advertisements, emails and newsletters that have been poorly written. What these pieces lack is good writing. Most of what I see has been written by highly competent professionals who are experts in their field. The net result is that what they write diminishes their message and damages their reputation.


Writing sounds easy, to most people. But as we know, it is not. It’s an art form that needs to be properly addressed.  You have to strike a balance between giving too much information to the reader and too little, and between inflating the reasons for success and under-selling them. While poor writing will hinder a good image, excellent writing will enrich it. Really good writing can sometimes create a credibility where none existed before. Good writing gets noticed and that’s good news for the business that the writing is supporting.

Good writing not only gains the attention of the reader, it convinces. The writing needs to be attractive, jargon-free and friendly, but it will fail if its underlying message is not made strongly enough. Whereas poor writing will sabotage a good reputation, excellent writing will enhance it. 

Make sure that people are saying  “Since you care about your writing, I care about you and your business.”  Sounds easy enough, right? You would be surprised by how may people do not take the time to write well and it can be keeping them from fulfilling their highest potential.  Don’t be one of those people. What are your thoughts on this?  When writing is poorly written does it lose value and credibility to you?

Cheers to writing well,

editorr Press Release

editorr Offers New Proofreading Service By Real People in Minutes

San Diego company editorr, LLC is launching their writing service that allows everyone to have on-demand access to a network of professional editors. The proofreading service, editorr, can be used on iOS, Android, and at http://www.editorr.com. Currently, editorr is available for English writing only, with plans to expand to other languages in the future.

With editorr, everyone can write well. It has been called “Uber for writing” as the requests are dispatched out to a network of qualified and prescreened editors who pick up the job anywhere, using a mobile connection.

Using editorr is easy. A user submits their writing request using the website or mobile apps. Next, the request is picked up within a few minutes by a qualified editor who begins working on the request.

The user receives the revised version of their writing within minutes. This service allows users to have access to qualified editors without having to wait days to get help.

Since April 1st, over 2000 users have already signed up for editorr, with over 750 downloads on iOS and 250 on Android. The first 500 words are free, after that the cost is $.03 per word with a maximum request size of 2,000 words. editorr also offers monthly subscription packages and business plans. The average request size is 277 words, picked up in 1.5 minutes and fixed in 10.3 minutes.

“I want to give everyone the opportunity to write well. There should be no excuse for poor writing,” said Brian Robison, CEO, and co-founder of editorr. “Growing up and living with a learning disability myself, I know the struggles that I have writing. I am fed up with poor writing and living in a culture that finds it acceptable. I want people to understand that writing well is important, and it is a representation of you. People should not be limited to express their creativity because of poor writing, lack of time, or learning disabilities. Not only are we creating jobs for editors, but we are also changing the way people write and helping them write better.”

Robison has defined his brand as a simple straight forward solution to help everyone write well. He notes that editorr’s core values are speed, quality, and value. Users can expect an excellent experience using the service from the state-of-the-art user interface to exceptional customer service and support. Robison hopes the service will empower people to write better, write more, and take control of their writing now, not later.
