Rebecca (PayforPrecision) Bio
I am a professionally trained proofreader and copywriter, and I love words and grammar (someone has to, right?) My two rugrats of 5 and 2 are my why as I wanted to run a business from home in order to bring them up myself.

I specialise in proofreading for authors, writing CVs and blogs and am also an experienced magazine sub editor for various national magazines.

When I am not buried in edits or eating ice cream you will find me upside down, as pole fitness is a massive passion of mine! I am deeply passionate about Liverpool FC and the Houston Texans (NFL).

Yes I know But it's more of a case of knowing you on the forum.I would feel awkward asking you and then have to turn you down.Just the way I am ..To polite.. The other issue is I have 1700 products.. But just out of interest how much would you charge ,say per product to write”
 

Well don't feel awkward, I'm not short of clients for a start. I would suggest you need blogs that answer questions your target market might ask rather than blurb about each product.... As then people Google the question and your blog comes up and they're clicking through to your website. 

As restrictions ease a little and businesses start to reopen in some sectors, we can think about what is next. For many they started to work from home for the first time and that new found time from no commute may be something they are not keen to give up again! Those with children may be itching to get back to the office.

More businesses are starting to understand that letting staff work in an Agile way is more productive. An exmple of this coule be giving people the autonomy to manage their own workload and timescales. You would allocate a task or project to someone and they estimate a delivery date then get on with it. No need to micromanage or check when they are working, just trust they will deliver. Being Agile means you can adapt to change and can allow people to work in their own way, rather than having very set processes in place.

There is also the matter of the comfort and safety at home. Many have not got an ergonomic set up as they didn't have time to arrange a desk and chair or don't have space. But this is the employer's responsibility and they must provide you with the correct equipment for your workstation and you should have an assessment done. 

But assuming the set up is right and the management style works, will you want to stay at home? Will the restaurants who deliver at the moment carry on that service? Will I stay working in my camper van?

Yes, you heard right, I set up in my camper van for the lockdown as soon as my husband was furloughed. It was the only way to get some peace. I have electricity and internet! It isn't the best in hot weather but it allows for work to be done! The children have no idea I am only round the corner!! The photo below may or may not be an exact respresentation...

So will you be keeping any of the changes you made?

 

 

 

Great info here, I don't need to worry about SEO myself yet but I write blogs for clients who do so always try and understand it as best I can! Answering the questions that your target market are asking is a great way to get traffic to your site, preferably with a well written blog or page of content!

Thank you.

Have looked into them before as I know my content is not at all good and needs to change (I did try once and their descriptions were terrible, ended up removing them).. My biggest issue is spending money..Yes I know you have to spend to make ... + I think/know my biggest fall down is not being able to do creative writing like that  lol.

Although am happy to try if you know someone who can try help”

 

You already know a blog/content writer.... 

Good luck Steve!

Hello and thanks for offering something so valuable for free. Great work..

It's a D for me. 

The text is too small and far too much info is crammed onto each page. The copy needs to be far more succinct and to the point. You should be able to sell your service in a page, not 14. Noone will ever read all that in my opinion. 

Hope you don't mind the honest response! 

That's strange that you say you're from Paddington but the server says you're based in the Czech Republic

I use Adobe for mine and it's always worked well enough. 

Hello!! Feedback please... 9th May 2020 1:52 PM

Welcome to the forum Hazel and best of luck. Steve's given some great advice there. 

Definitely get your name out there locally maybe get involved with some volunteering delivering food or something. Then you can shout about it with your brand. 

My cleaners messaged to say they're restarting next week, so it looks like you might be able to get started soon. But I like the idea of offering deep cleans. My cleaners said they can arrange that for us if we need it, but they're using another cleaning service to do it.
