Articulate Wordsmithing

Custom wordcraft for clear, simple understanding.

Most people today encounter much more information communicated to them than people did in any prior era. This is why those 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
  • how often.

All that and more.

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

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

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

    every word well chosen

eloquent use of plain English

To satisfy both marketer and market, effective business communications must be clear, concise, correct, and compelling. Marketing communications must also be timely, targeted, poignant, and persuasive. This is why an Articulate wordsmith can be a great ally, quickly developing a sharp understanding of the situation, then eloquently using plain English to communicate the message meaningfully to the market.

truly tailored communications

Others offer off-the-shelf "content" from extensive catalogues of already-written articles. In contrast, Articulate wordsmiths only custom-craft distinct messages to communicate effectively between each client and their own audience.

bright minds, clear communication

Articulate editorial services reflect both aspects of the firm's motto: bright minds, clear communication. Bright minds first comprehend the situation in context, then how to facilitate through words a positive outcome for both the nominal communicator of the message and each intended recipient of that message. Once Articulate wordsmiths convey a sharp understanding of the message through expert wordcraft, clear communication results.

proven trustworthy

On every wordcraft project promotional or persuasive, instructional or informative Articulate wordsmiths aim to serve both the intended reader and the credited deliverer of the message:

  • ensuring consistently correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, and formatting
  • excising or replacing needless words, sentences, paragraphs, or sections

not like the others - since 1996

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 audience.
  • Three minds are brighter than one. As appropriate, Articulate uses a three-person wordcraft team: a draft writer, a senior editor, and a sharp-eyed proofer.
  • Each member of Articulate's wordcraft team separately applies objective standards, using a proprietary 33-point editorial quality-assurance checklist to ensure reliably clear, effective communication.
