Articulate Editorial Services

Sharper writing, editing, and proofing.

Most people today encounter much more information communicated to them than people did in any prior era. This is why independent businesses aiming to achieve more through their marketing communications must strategically consider what to say, how to say it, who to say it to, by what channels, and how often.

    Q: Is it true that the pen can be mightier than the sword?

     Q: When a key message goes misunderstood, how costly that be?

    Q: What can happen when critical information is clearly understood?

    Q: If content is king, then how much content is good for business; how often?

    Q: How likely are they to be forgotten when words transform people’s perspectives?

every word well chosen

eloquent use of plain English

To satisfy both marketer and market, marketing communications must be clear, correct, concise, and compelling. Effective business communications must also be timely, targeted, and poignant. This is why an Articulate wordsmith can be a great ally, quickly developing a sharp understanding of any situation, then eloquently using plain English to convey an authentic key message credibly and effectively to the target market.

How Articulate Consultants differ from others who make similar claims:

  • Articulate does not mess with the message, rather focusing on communicating it effectively to the intended readers.

  • Each member of Articulate's wordcraft team separately applies objective standards, using a proprietary 33-point editorial quality-assurance checklist that ensures reliably clear, effective writing.
