Professional Copy Editing Services

Home > Services > Copy Editing Services

I’ll never forget the day my first professionally copy edited piece came back. It felt like magic.

As a life long content creator (I wrote my first novel at 9 years old), I’ve always loved writing but I hate editing. I just didn’t do it.

Then I started creating content for marketing my businesses, and just writing was no longer good enough.

I needed copy editing, so after working with editors for a while I decided to start EditorNinja so you too could feel that magic.

If you’re producing copy of any sort then you need to make sure it’s ready to go to its final destination, whether that’s a blog post or a sales deck or even an investor presentation.

Our copy editing services  here at EditorNinja include the following and more:

  1. Content consistency, so everything is clear to the reader
  2. Content structure, so it looks professional
  3. Clarity of words used, because a message not understood doesn’t convert
  4. Cross references, because things should be properly cited
  5. Grammar, because people notice it even subconsciously
  6. Punctuation, because it too matters
  7. Spelling, because misspelling kill conversions.

Trust me. Free yourself up to focus on higher value strategic work by outsourcing your copy editing to EditorNinja.

I’m excited to speak with you.

What is copy editing?

Copy editing occurs during the creation process. Before your document is ready for final proofreading review, you may wish to have it read for correctness and clarity of argument. This is copyediting in a nutshell.

Most copy editing happens in draft form, such as in a Word or Google Doc (or similar depending on type of document, such as PPTX for a presentation). This is so that in-depth edits can be made and comments left for the author to return and make the edits to their own manuscript.

Copy editing by definition looks at structure and correctness of copy. It is not responsible for correctness of content. That is the job of a subject matter expert who can correct the content 

Why you need copy editing

Copy editing is necessary after the initial writing to correct for many common errors including clarity, structure, word usage, and proper citation of sources.

Every document should be copy edited before being published. Why?

Because content with stylistic errors, spelling mistakes, and grammar errors is shown to convert worse than correct copy. Bounce rates are also shown to increase by about 85% when copy is not clean.

If you care about how well your content performs to drive a business forward, it needs to be copy edited.

Frequently Ask Questions

A copy editing service is simply a way to get your copy edited, either before it goes live or once it’s been live for a while, to correct for phrasing, tenses, grammar, and more. It is more than simply looking for typos!

Copy editors, when hired on your own, cost anywhere from $30-$55 per hour. The best are trained professionally, and it is possible to find freelance editors who have not been professionally trained for less per hour. At EditorNinja we take care of paying editors so you don’t have to think about it.

A copy editor’s main job is looking for spelling grammar, and language issues to make sure style guides are followed and the overall piece makes sense.

An editor looks at the whole piece and often has subject matter expertise to also look for correctness.

Simply put, editing deals with the content and meaning of the document whereas copy editing focuses on the technical elements and structure of the document. We recommend that customers have a subject-matter expert edit the document for correctness before it comes to EditorNinja.

A lot of freelancers and agencies worry about margins, as they should. But what’s more challenging than getting clients is keeping them, and you have probably lost clients because of subpar content work.

We’d argue that you can’t afford to not use EditorNinja. You can even bake it into your pricing so it pays for itself and then some.

“The difference between good and great is often an extra round of revision. The person who looks things over a second time will appear smarter or more talented, but actually is just polishing things a bit more. Take the time to get it right. Revise it one extra time.” - James Clear, Author
