Whether your document has bulleted lists, tables, foot notes, section breaks, headers and footers, styles including header tags, automatic contents pages, etc, we can help. We can provide you with a final copy and a tracked changes copy showing all the changes we have made to the original. There is also an option to add comments throughout the document, these can be removed later. We can amend the document again and again until you are completely happy with the final product.

Copy writing and editing
Fingertips have a team of copy writers who can write up material from scratch. Some material you may require writing include:
- Website pages
- Marketing material
- Letters and email correspondence
- Articles and blog posts
In today’s world marketing revolves around the internet via social media, websites, article and blog posting. We understand search engine optimisation is vital for your website to be found and that Google’s requirements constantly change of how it rates a website’s importance and how it places it in the rankings. Social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Pinterest to name but a few, are all ways of getting yourself out there, but this requires constant updates and interesting posts to engage your readers. Blog posting interesting articles about your products and services, other general news topics, help, advice and top tips that will attract readers and want them coming back to your website time and time again is a time consuming process, and thinking of new and exciting topics can leave you feeling stressed and tired! We can help write these articles for you. We will ask you to fill in a questionnaire about your business so we can gain as much information as possible in order that we can produce exciting and informative content. We recommend you write a new blog post once a week of about 400 words or so.
If you are thinking of having a website designed and need help writing up the pages we can assist. Also if you are a web developer who would rather concentrate on the design aspect of the site and would like to outsource the writing content then we can help. We will of course need as much information about the company’s services as possible and what each page needs to portray, how many pages there are and their titles. If the client could provide some existing marketing materials or a previous website that would give us some more information, this would be beneficial. What kind of style is the company after? Fun, corporate/business, pretty, serious, calm etc.
Do you have letters and emails that need typing up? If you could provide some information on what the letter or email needs to say, we can write it up in a professional, businesslike manner which will be sent to you to proof read and make any amendments and changes for us to correct.
Would you like to send out a monthly newsletter to your clients? Please provide us with some subjects that you would like to cover, any special offers or competitions that could be included, any interesting work that you have carried out that month etc, and we will produce the written content for you to incorporate into your template.
If you have audio that you do not require to be the exact transcript, but would like a summarised version, we can assist. Please let us know if the transcript needs to be written from a specific person’s viewpoint or whether a generalised summary is required.
Whatever your requirements, a simple copy typing job, or complex writing, please contact us to discuss and hopefully we can work together.
