Business writing and editing
Strong, well-written communication enhances your brand and helps build your business. Whether you need writing, editing or proofreading, long texts or short copy, for internal or external use, for traditional or digital media — leave it to me! Business writing and editing is my specialty.
I’ll present your information and express your ideas clearly, persuasively and correctly. In British or American English, adapted to your organization’s tone of voice and style guides. Whatever your business.
Focus on IMPACT, not just text
Lots of people can write well. Lots of people can edit texts to make sure they are accurate, with correct spelling and grammar. That’s not enough. I deliver all that and more. I guarantee effective written communication that:
- meets the needs of the defined audiences
- is aligned with your business objectives
- is well structured, well written, accurate and consistent
- has clear takeaway messages and/or calls to action
- uses the right terminology and tone of voice
- is efficient to produce and distribute
- is adapted to the channels or media where it is published.
The right texts for the right channels/media
I write differently depending on the channels or media the text is intended for. With a background in writing for traditional media, I’ve also been writing for digital channels for over 20 years. I’m expert at writing for the web, SEO copywriting and writing text optimized for reading on mobile devices.
In fact, I wrote a book about it! See: Writing for Mobile by Fiona Brichaut.
How I work
I usually work directly with topic specialists to turn their knowledge and insights into effective, readable texts. My goal is always to make the complex, simple. Especially if the target audiences are not specialists or if English is not their first language.
Depending on your setup, I can:
- start from a blank page, interviewing specialists to find out what needs to be communicated
- start with texts written by specialists, re-writing, editing and correcting as needed
- support, mentor and train your copywriters
- work on text and design together, with your creative team
- create texts, then deliver to your creative team for production
- work with my own network of freelance copywriters and graphic designers.
