Frequently Asked Questions about {rpEdit}

Why Work with Me?

Besides helping you craft effective messages that will attract your audience's attention, you'll find that I am:

  • Fast. I can get the job done on time and on budget, often early and (think about it) under budget.
  • Fastidious. My experience editing and writing marketing content, my love of language and hyper-sensitivity to its correct, best use — combined with my competitive spirit and slight OCD streak — means your copy reads well and, most important, gets your message to your audience effectively.
  • Fun. I take the job seriously — and go about it with a sense of humor. Working with me you'll discover I'm a personable writer/editor and easily approachable with questions or concerns.
