You might be wondering why you should hire an outside editor to perform annual report editing services. Wouldn’t someone from your own marketing department or communications department know more about your company and be able to do a thorough job of catching mistakes?
The answer is yes, your staff must edit the annual report, as well! An outside annual report editor adds to what you can already do. The annual report production process is intense, and your staff will find they get too close to it to be able to identify every issue. A fresh, objective eye from a senior editor with lots of annual report experience will help ensure no one is embarrassed by spelling errors, repeats, inconsistencies–or just plain ineffective language.
In fact, one of the most problematic mistakes made in annual reports is not taking advantage of this highly-visible opportunity to connect deeply with your primary stakeholders.
Whether you simply need proofreading and language editing or assistance with clarifying ideas, or building more power into your message, Kindra Foster can become an instant member of your team, with quick and easy annual report editing services.
