Our Philosophy

  • We believe good writing is based on good listening, so we listen closely to your needs. We hear what you have to say about your company, organization, products, and services, digging deep to make sure your documents are accurate and appropriate for your purpose and audience.
  • We believe it’s our job to make you look great to your customers, clients, and prospects. Before starting any project, we make sure we have a thorough understanding of who those people are and what they want to know.
  • We believe quality copywriting is about more than putting together words, sentences, and paragraphs. We consider ALL the factors involved, including purpose, branding, structure, tone, and context, and we help you determine the right message and direction for each document.
  • We believe in simple language that doesn’t distort your message, so we choose plain words for complex concepts, strive for a logical flow of ideas, and honor your unique, authentic voice.
  • We believe you have enough on your plate without having to babysit your vendors, so we take charge of all our projects, keep you on track, and deliver as promised.
  • We believe every client deserves to be treated like our only client, so we are attentive and available throughout each project.
  • We believe in mutually beneficial, long-term relationships, so we work with clients who need ongoing content development.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! That’s what we specialize in. We’ve found that our services provide the best value when we can get to know you—as well as your products, services, and programs—over time.

Clients have found us to be dependable, flexible, and professional. We respond quickly to messages, collaborate to find the best ways to complete projects, and do our best to accommodate requests that require a fast response.

Each project is different, but generally we collect information through a combination of interviews, online research, and reviews of source materials that you provide.

Our projects are not one-size-fits-all, and therefore neither are our fees. Fees depend on a number of factors, including the scope of the project, complexity of the material, types of research required, number of reviewers, and volume of work. We’re happy to provide a no-obligation estimate following an initial consultation, which you can contact us to arrange.

 Typically, you’ll be asked to:

  • Participate in an initial consultation
  • Provide background information for the project
  • Participate in interviews, or make subject matter experts available to do so
  • Be available for communication throughout the project
  • Review drafts
  • Provide final approval

No! We have considerable experience working with international clients, including those in Asia, Europe, and Latin America. We understand how to navigate different time zones, languages, and cultures, and how to write for international audiences. We value the opportunity to work with and learn from people outside the U.S.

Depending on your needs and our availability, your project will be covered by principal Karen Marcus, one of the competent contractors on her team, or a combination of team members.

We’re adept at listening not just to what clients say, but also to what they don’t say, and at bringing out the information needed to effectively complete each project. Beyond words, sentences, and paragraphs, we explore such factors as the purpose, audience profile, type of document, call to action, structure, branding, and placement. Our initial drafts are typically 90 to 100 percent accurate, and we rarely miss a deadline.

Contact us to get started. We’ll set a time to meet and ask some questions about your project, your company, and your expectations. Then, if you believe we can help and we believe our services are a good fit for your needs, we’ll prepare a proposal that spells out the details of how we can help you meet your goals. After we sign an agreement based on an approved proposal, we’ll get started!
