Editing

Clean, crisp copy invites interest, instills confidence and makes people notice you. Whether it is a university paper, the best-seller novel, an RFP, a speech, a thank you letter or a complaint seeking assistance, good writing garners the results you need. Wordquest will take your prose to the next level. 

Proofreading

 

Do you need an experienced proofreader to spot errors and correct your business text? Do you need a reliable proofreader to complete urgent proofreading or edit projects accurately and on time? Wordquest will ensure that your projects, documents and web sites are error-free and say what you mean. Either a single project or regular proofreading is available as you require. Complete confidentiality is guaranteed. For a sample, send 300 words or less of text to be edited and proofread 

 

Copywriting

 

Copyediting catches costly and embarrassing errors before your project/book/website goes to the press. Fresh eyes read each word like a separate entity and spot mistakes that are camouflaged by familiarity with your subject and content. 

 

Idea Person/Writing Coach

 

Call or email to book your free 15-minute session. You may say who needs a writing coach. However, consider how the act of creating with words is a solitary endeavour. With coaching and the motivation of being accountable to a coach who will check up on you, writers/artists produce more, enhance their skills and find their own rhythms. Plans will be individualized to meet each person’s needs.
 

Newsletters

 

A monthly or quarterly newsletter can show off your recent work and also remind people that you are open for business. Let people know you are available for more work and interested in referrals. It is important to communicate regularly with customers. Be pro-active and stay in the mind of your customers. It works! ...it has since the beginning of commerce. Effective customer contact is the best marketing strategy. Newsletters for which you invite people to sign up are a credible contact method. 

 

Website Text

 

Writing for New Media requires a different approach. All words are not created equal. Briefer chunks of well-written text invite people to linger and learn more about your business, products, and services. Every word must verbally project the core personality of what your business is and strives to be. Well-chosen words signify your ethics and principles and communicate what you promise to deliver. Some basic designs can be accommodated. Person to person communication allows salespeople to benefit from verbal feedback while observing body language and facial expressions moment by moment and aid appropriate responses. Utilizing powerful text and case studies on your website provides a warm touch allowing your potential online clients to “look you in the eye” and move them to trust you and accept what you're telling them. 

 

Branding

A company brand must capture the STRENGTHS + MISSION + VISION + PERSONALITY of your products, service, and business. A personal brand for a one-person operation should accurately reflect your STRENGTHS + GOALS + PASSIONS + PERSONALITY. As a skilled interviewer and storyteller, professional branding will make your business shine! 

 

Annual and/or Formal Reports

Word Quest will take your mountain of studies, papers, meeting minutes, surveys and distill it down to a neat tidy final report including a scintillating executive summary that makes your readers want to study all the information. 

 

Advertorials

 

The precursor to case studies, the word advertorial made a surprise appearance in Webster's Third New International Dictionary around 1961. As an advertisement dressed in editorial content, it can offer valid information to your prospective clients and can work for you in consumer magazines. When you are too busy, lack staff with the necessary writing skills or simply choose to not be bothered with the task of writing advertorial copy, Wordquest is here to do your bidding.

 

Brochures

 

Does creating a simple brochure seem like rocket science to you? A craftily designed and written brochure can be used as a powerful marketing tool to leave behind after a sales meeting, or pop it in the mail to prospective customers. Contact Rusti to create a brochure that entices customers to open it and read about the benefits of your products and services. A brochure can establish credibility and trust for your business and be a reminder of your business.

 

Business Plan Writing

 

Goals are like destinations and maps are vital tools to help you reach the treasure of success. A business plan is like a detailed map and an essential first step. A good business plan helps in four major ways: It provides a sense of direction. It demonstrates you have a plan. It builds commitment to layout and announces your objectives. It is a yardstick you can use to measure your progress against it. More than theory, businesses that create and follow a business plan enjoy an average profit margin of 54%. The average profit margin for businesses that ignore this vital step is 35%. 

 

Manuals

 

Manuals are written by technical people for the average consumer often misses a step or sound like legalese. After reformatting the manual to make it more readable, Wordquest will work with your technical writers to ensure accuracy AND accessibility. If you need a manual written from scratch, as a skilled interviewer with step-by-step task analysis writing experience, Rusti will put it all in written form in a manual. Organized and well-written training manuals will eliminate the need for questions. 

 

Resumes

 

Do you need your resume professionally written? A resume presents an image of yourself to the employer. In a highly competitive job market, you need a writer who will spend time getting to know you and reveal the keywords that industry HR managers and executive headhunters search to see before making the call for an interview. When you need a job, you know the importance of having a professional resume. Do you replace your own furnace when you aren’t a gas-fitter or do your house shingles when you are afraid of heights? Professionals will treat your resume as the key or even passport to your career and future.
