Personal

In the virtual world, as in the real world, first impressions mean everything. And well-groomed personal and professional websites can speak volumes to online audiences and prospective employers.

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

  • Your official website
  • Branding websites (e.g., BrandYourself.com, Reputation.com)
  • Professional emails (including cover letters and resumes)
  • Job/Career websites (e.g., Monster.com, LinkedIn.com)
  • Portfolio websites (e.g., Coroflot.com, Carbonmade.com)
  • Social media sites (e.g., Twitter.com, Facebook.com)
  • Blogging websites (e.g., WordPress.com, Blogger.com)
  • Dating websites (e.g., Match.com, eHarmony.com)
  • Wedding websites (e.g., TheKnot.com, eWedding.com)

NEW! Do you need personal marketing and promotional materials (e.g., business/networking cards, save-the-date cards, invitations, announcements) edited before you send them to a printing company? We can help you with those too! For error-free text and peace of mind, run your materials by us first. The estimate questionnaire and below pricing conditions apply.

Clean Sweep Copy Editing provides the most comprehensive online editing services in the business. 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 clients have vastly different online 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 (For example, the standard turnaround time for a one-time edit of an entire website is usually two business days, but we are happy to negotiate an earlier deadline.)
  • Editing option preference (Please see below.)
  • 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 on a website, emailed to someone else or sent to a printer. You receive two sets of documents: one that shows our fixes in Track Changes mode and one that shows the final edited copy.

2. Inspection report: We evaluate copy that has already been published on a website and suggest edits through an easy-to-follow and detailed error assessment similar to a home inspection report. You then make the fixes at your discretion. Click here to take a tour of our inspection report.

3. Publishing platform: Through the use of a temporary username and password that you supply to us, we access your publishing platform to make changes directly to copy. We are most familiar with WordPress and Movable Type. For an extra fee, we can also supply you with an inspection report that gives a detailed account of the changes we made.

WORD COUNT TOOL

To get an idea of how much it would cost to have your copy edited, please use the complimentary word counter below; it will automatically calculate your starting price. Please note that the word counter will not save your text, and word count is only one factor that we consider when determining pricing.

MAINTENANCE SERVICES

Just like a traditional cleaning company, we also offer daily, weekly and monthly maintenance services, perfect for those who update blogs, social media sites and portions of their websites regularly.

Because pricing and payment schedules for maintenance services are determined on an individual basis, please email or call us to discuss your editing needs.
