10 reasons you need someone to write for your business

THE PROBLEMS

  1. You’re always having an argument with autocorrect or spell-check!
  2. You’d rather watch all those “likes” ticking up on your Facebook page than write up the promotional material for your Spring special offer.
  3. You get confused between “your” and “you’re”, “there” and “their” all the time.
  4. You hated grammar and language at school, and nothing has changed!
  5. Your last advertising flyer was a flop because it had spelling errors that knocked your credibility.
  6. You’re envious of the wording on your competitors’ websites.
  7. Your blog entries all seem to be written by a different “you”, every time!
  8. You feel that what you write is stale, but you don’t really know how to fix it.
  9. Your business could do with an objective eye, particularly when dealing with trends and new technology.
  10. You. Just. Don’t. Want. To. Do. This. Writing. Lark!

THE SOLUTIONS

  1. There are times when even the strictest grammarians will be stumped by the spelling or use of a word. The key is to know when a word is right, or when it might be an alternate spelling, as would happen if the program or app is using American spelling.
  2. It can be quite a kick seeing “likes” and “shares” happen on your business page, but sometimes you just don’t have the time after a busy day to sit down and transfer that enthusiasm onto your Facebook page.
  3. Spell-check and autocorrect don’t always catch grammatical or spelling errors. Sometimes, a word is spelt correctly but it’s being used in the wrong context. If you’re unaware of this, you could end up saying something that you didn’t intend.
  4. Not everyone excelled in English class, just as not everyone shone at Maths or Accounting. Play to your strengths—you should know them by now.
  5. Many Internet memes have been born of awful mistakes in adverts or business materials. Consider a professional’s writing to be a form of “credibility insurance“.
  6. Sometimes, seeing how a business competitor’s page has that extra “spark” can make you feel a bit down. Could it be that they have someone writing for them?
  7. Setting the tone for your business is very important. A good writer can help you present a certain “voice” in your web content and business presentations.
  8. There are many times when you write and write and write, and it all seems the same, but you don’t know how to dig yourself out of the rut you’re in.
  9. You have become too used to the wording on your website or business material, and you’re unaware that a little makeover might just kickstart a new run of customers and clients.
  10. There are people out there who love writing. Let them do it for you, to the best of their ability!

RELAX! I’ll do your writing for you!

FMD blog Editing Pic.jpgFix Media provides a cost-effective, fast-turnaround editing and writing service for startups and small businesses. We operate in the Garden Route as well as via the web, across South Africa, and the rest of the world.

Many SMEs and business owners are daunted by the time taken to write a comprehensive guide to their products and services, while others are unsure of just how simple and concise they actually can be in describing what they have to offer.

We can take your lists and corporate profiles, and turn them into eye-catching and engaging text that will work very well across various platforms – from your Facebook page to your website description.

A 100-word document from you can be edited for as little as R25!

And if you don’t have the time to write your own text for your brochure or company profile, we can work with a short, basic description (provided by you) and turn it into web-friendly and Google-compliant content that your web designer will be able to put straight onto the page!

So why not join those savvy business owners who use Fix Media to turn a story into a best-seller!

Here, there and everywhere

designers of the world .pngFix Media Design has relocated offices to the Garden Route!

This means we can bring our work ethic and skills to a wider audience while still retaining our contact with existing clients, both local and overseas.

The same care and creativity in design, the same attention to detail, the same precision in writing and editing, but with an added sprinkle of beautiful inspiration from one of the world’s most amazing places.

Fix Media’s training arm is also Going Big!

The Silver Surfer School of SA will be expanding its scope in assisting those who feel they have been left behind by technology and smart gadgets. Presentations, workshops, talks, and one-on-one instruction are all part of our service. The Garden Route is particularly important due to its mature population who still want to be in contact with friends and family across the world.

Versatility

The space where Fix Media and the Silver Surfer School intersects is the area of Social Media Management. Small businesses or enterprises that do not have the time or the inclination to work on Facebook pages or Twitter accounts can employ Fix Media to manage those for a small retainer fee. All options are negotiable, from multiple promotions per week, to simply keeping a social media page up-to-date and fresh.

What’s more, if a business owner is not proficient or confident in writing promotional material for his or her social media page or website, then Fix Media can assist, making sure that the written word conveys the best and most beautiful aspects of that enterprise. Assistance in editing and proof-reading is also offered. We will clean up your grammar and give it that extra bit of spark that makes potential customers take note.

But wait, there’s more!

Fix Media – with decades of experience in SA’s top print media – can offer serious editorial visual content. Infographics, diagrams, charts, maps, logos, mastheads, photographic editing and correction (Photoshop). Every item is fully researched and checked. And, if needed, turn-around time can be expedited to comply with tight deadlines.

We’re happy to find a new home, and hope you’d like to join us in producing excellent content and compelling visuals!
