Business Writers and Editors

Boardroom Metrics provides Business Writing,  Editing and Corporate Communications 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, many began inquiring about other written content for:

  • press releases
  • published articles
  • annual reports
  • website content
  • blogs
  • marketing collateral
  • speeches
  • presentations
  • white papers

There are several common reasons why organizations now outsource their business writing work to Boardroom Metrics now, 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).
