An effective media organization must be as credible as it is engaging. This means carefully checked facts; clear, concise copy; and perfect spelling, punctuation and grammar.

Here are just a few examples of where Clean Sweep Copy Editing can help your media organization shine online:

  • Articles
  • Columns
  • Blogs
  • Slideshows
  • Social media updates (e.g., Facebook, Twitter)

Clean Sweep Copy Editing makes media copy fit for the discerning eye of the educated masses. The public demands quality content, and we ensure they get it. We don’t just give copy a spot or surface clean; we give it a deep clean so it sparkles. We cover all nooks and crannies:

  • Spelling
  • Punctuation
  • Grammar
  • Sentence structure
  • Content clarity, conciseness, completeness
  • Fact-checking (including all names, numbers and links)
  • Spacing

Because our media clients have vastly different editing needs, we take ALL of the following factors into account when determining pricing for our one-time editing services:

  • Word count = 8 cents per word
  • Original condition of text
  • Number of facts to be verified and links to be checked
  • Requested turnaround time
  • 10 percent introductory discount for new clients

We offer three editing options:

1. Direct editing: We make changes directly to copy that you email to us before it is published. You receive two sets of documents: one that shows our fixes in Track Changes mode and one that shows the final edited copy.

2. Publishing platform: Through the use of a temporary login and password supplied to us by your organization, we access your publishing platform to make changes directly to copy. Although we are most familiar with Movable Type and WordPress, we are willing to conform to any publishing platform necessary.

3. Inspection report: We assess the content on your organization’s website and suggest edits through a detailed inspection report. You then make the fixes at your discretion. (This option is only available if the content has already been published.) Click here to take a tour of our inspection report.
