9 Reasons to Have Kind Word Review and Edit Your Content

Why would you hire someone to review and edit your work for you? You can do that stuff yourself, right?

Whether you’re a professional writer or complete novice, good writing doesn’t always come easy. You can spend hours and hours writing and rewriting, but sometimes it feels like you just can’t get it the way you want it.

Similarly, it’s easy to get too close to your work so you can’t see any pesky typos that might creep in, or if there’s a better and clearer way to say something.

As copyeditors, our goal isn’t to take your copy and tear it to shreds. We’re here to provide you with honest and thoughtful feedback that will make your writing more appealing to your readers.

Sounds good, huh?

So here are 9 reasons you might think you don’t need us…that actually turn out to be reasons you should hire Kind Word to review and edit your content.

Reasons to hire an editor

1. We copyedit our own work

Everyone makes mistakes – even professional writers. And when you’ve poured your blood, sweat and tears into a piece of work, it can be hard to pick up on any typos because you’re so involved with the piece.

Having someone review and edit your content provides a fresh pair of eyes to pick up any errors, as well as a fresh perspective to say something in a different way that makes it clearer and more concise. 

Getting us to look over your work can do wonders, and ensure your content is ready for the world to see.

We’re here to help with every piece of copy if you want – no matter how small. Having trouble with that first sentence or final paragraph? Just send it over.

We offer a range of subscriptions – from light proofreading through to heavy editing and rewriting – and there’s no limit to the amount of copy you can send us to review.

2. We don’t have the budget to hire a copyeditor

Hiring Kind Word to review your content is more cost effective than you might think.

If you were to hire a good in-house copyeditor, you’d need to pay them an annual salary of somewhere between $75,000 and $100,000.

Our monthly subscription packages cost between $12,000 and $36,000 a year, depending on what support you need. 

No matter how many job requests you have or how big or small a job is, our service costs the same every month, so you’ll never have to stress about going over budget. Plus, you can pause or cancel your subscription at any time.

3. We don’t have the time to perfect our content

We live in such a fast-paced world these days, there’s a tendency to rush your content creation and get it out to your audience so you can tick that task off your to-do list and move on to the next job.

But did you give it a final once-over before you hit publish? Are you totally confident it’s free of errors and the best it could possibly be?

Recently, we’ve seen an increasing need from clients who write their own content but want the eye of a professional copywriter to look over their work before the world sees it.

If the thought of sitting down to review and edit a piece of content fills you with dread, send it to us. We love that stuff, and let’s face it, there are far more fun and important things you could be doing.   

4. We can’t always rely on freelancers being available

The reliability of our subscription service means you’re not competing with other clients for our time, and there’s no need to book. We’re here anytime you need a professional eye to look over your copy. 

There’s no need to stress about availability when you have ongoing access, so you don’t ever have to worry about missing a deadline. Most job requests are completed and returned to you within 1-2 business days.

5. We have a team of writers to take care of our content

That’s great. But do they all write in the exact same style?

When you have lots of different people writing content for your business, it’s hard to create consistency in the language and tone.

By hiring us to review the content your team writes for you, we can ensure it’s all perfectly consistent. That way, you can be confident you’re speaking to your audience with one voice.

6. We have busy and quiet periods

As business owners, we totally get that when it comes to work, there are often peaks and troughs. Some months it feels like you’re drowning in content, other months you can hear the tumbleweed blowing through your inbox.

That’s why we offer flexibility with our subscription. There’s no contract to tie you in, and you have the ability to pause your subscription whenever you need to.  

7. We need to do our own research

Our clients work with us in different ways and it’s important that you get a service that’s tailored to your needs.

Often, clients prefer to do their own research for a number of reasons. For instance, they might know the ins and outs of industry nuances, or they have to navigate internal relationships (read: politics) between departments.

Whichever way you like to work, that’s fine by us. We love getting to know our clients to make working with us feel as smooth as possible.

One of the most popular ways people like to work with Kind Word is by providing us with a first draft that we can then review. This helps tighten up the language and any grammatical inconsistencies without losing the essence of the message you want to communicate.

8. Our content isn’t getting much engagement

We have over 7 years of copywriting experience and know what works when it comes to copy that engages readers.

No matter who your audience is, we can work our magic to make your content more readable and get the results you’re looking for.

9. We use AI to write our copy

AI has fast become a popular way of creating content for businesses. But it’s not yet sophisticated enough to create relatable, humanized content. It’s also not always totally accurate. After all, it’s only a robot.

We’re more than happy to take a look over anything you’ve asked AI to create for you, to add some personality and make it more human, so people will be more likely to engage with it.
