Business Writers and Editors

Boardroom Metrics provides Business Writing and Editing services to clients in the United States, Canada and Europe.

Business Writing Services Background

This unique business writing service originally began with our RFP writers. As clients became comfortable with outsourcing their proposal writing to us, more of them began inquiring about other written content for:

  • business plans
  • marketing collateral
  • company manuals
  • website content
  • regular blogs
  • published articles
  • white papers
  • research
  • fact checking
  • public presentations
  • speeches and more.

In response, we sourced, screened and assembled a team of business writing experts from around the world. These writers represent a one-stop shop of writing skills and subject matter areas including IT, medical, pharma, retail, consumer packaged goods and many others.

There are several common reasons why organizations outsource their business writing work to Boardroom Metrics, including:

  1. Lack of internal writing expertise. While every organization employs people knowledgeable about their business, not all of them employ people with the wide range of writing skills required by marketers, sales people and senior managers. RFP’s, web copy and marketing content are all written differently. Our people know how to do that.
  2. Short time line for project completion. We are in the urgency business. Many of the writing requests we get are last minute and unexpected. Our team works 24/7 to meet the urgent requirement of our clients.
  3. Business knowledge. All of our writers are senior, experienced corporate business people. Most have at least ten years of corporate experience. They understand business and how businesses think and operate.

Business Writing Project Management

Integral to all of business writing services is the ability to manage the writing project from start through to completion. We understand the controls and time pressures, and we take into consideration the smallest of details to ensure the highest quality outcome.

We work with Public companies, Entrepreneurs, Professional Service firms, Private companies, Associations and Not for Profit Agencies.

Our approach is based on understanding what our clients want to achieve with their business writing projects. We work both strategically (to capture the why) and tactically (the best way to get it done).

Presentation, Speech and Document Graphics Design Services

One of the simplest, most effective ways that your writing project and in-person presentation can stand out is through the use of professional graphics and design elements. There are several common proposal elements that can be uniquely enhanced through professional design:

  1. Simplifying complex processes.
  2. Illustrating product and service offerings.
  3. Identifying locations.
  4. Making standard pie charts and graphs more interesting.
  5. Highlighting your management team.
  6. Conveying an overall feeling about your business.

These services can be engaged separately or as part of any business writing project.

Make your next writing project stand out.

Karen. A sincere thank you for helping us with our government RFP response. I was so impressed how responsive you and your team are. You even called me back at 10:30 in the evening the first time we talked. I wasn’t sure that working with someone in Europe would work, but you were right – it actually made the process more efficient. Your writer was working when we were asleep! Ultimately, you kept the process easy and our response was so much better than anything we could have done on our own. Thank you!
