Content Writing/Copywriting

If writing is not your passion, turn to the Thompson-Ellis team.  We'll simplify the writing process for you.  We will accurately and creatively communicate your ideas and themes to achieve the results you desire.  Not only that, whether you need help conveying the right message; or writing a grant proposal, a press release, or updating your website content, we'll help you set the right tone for your message and leave a distinctive impression on the minds of your customers and prospects. You want them to take action, don't you?

Proofreading and Editing

When we proofread or edit your work, we place each word under a microscope to find any spelling mistakes, typographical errors, inappropriate grammar, misused words, lack of punctuation, and other inconsistencies.  We will fix anything that is out of place. Our goal is to ensure that the meaning of your message is logical and clear.

Content Editing

In content or substantive editing, we are serious about working with you to make changes to your document that will improve the general flow and clarity of the text.  When we immerse ourselves into editing your work, we examine how vocabulary words are used in sentences, change sentence structure, reconstruct paragraphs, suggest additions and deletions, and create smoother transitions.  We'll involve you in every phase so you'll be satisfied with the finished product. In the end, you'll be better able to target your customers and prospects.

If you are unsure about whether your document needs simple editing or content editing, send it to us and we will determine and communicate to you the level of improvement we deem most appropriate.

All documents submitted to Thompson-Ellis Consulting for editing/proofreading will remain confidential. The author retains his or her rights to the document according to applicable copyright laws.
