Today, I’m announcing two new services here at Keystone Computer Concepts. In truth, they’re not all that new since we’ve been doing them for some time. It’s just that most people don’t know we offer them. Let me tell you about both.
Proofing and Editing
Proofing and editing is a service we’ve been doing for a few organizations/companies. Now, we’re offering it to any company or group that wants great proofing and/or editing. Our rates are very competitive and we’ll quote before we start.
You might wonder why proofing and editing is important. In today’s world, it seems things like spelling and correct information don’t count. But, they do. If you went miles out of your way and missed a special event because the flyer given to you had the wrong address on it, you wouldn’t be too happy. When things like this happen, people get frustrated and those producing the error can look less than professional.
What is the difference between proofing and editing? Let me explain how we look at these two services.
When we proof, we look for things like typos, misspelled words, wrong phone numbers, and wrong addresses. For instance, we just saw a group create and circulate a poster for their Christmas event and it had the wrong phone number to call for tickets. Had we proofed that poster for them before hundreds of copies were printed, they would have avoided all the issues needed to fix it.
Editing goes beyond proofing. Here we look for grammatical errors such as tense consistency. We also look for mistakes such as wrong font sizes, misuse of quotes, and more. Additionally, we fact-check the article we’re editing, as needed. Here’s an example of how fact-checking would have been helpful: I just saw an article about the movie, “Love Actually.” The article says it was updated on November 16, 2023. However, under the section on the page entitled “Is Love Actually On Cable?” it lists dates from 2022, not 2023. (See the page HERE.)
When it comes to editing, we are very careful to not lose the author’s “voice.” I, being from Pennsylvania, tend to write in a particular fashion and I wouldn’t want my “style” to be changed without my permission. (Note: this is one of the downsides to having A.I. write articles. The computer-generated message rarely sounds like the person who supposedly wrote it. You might see the section of a previous post entitled But What About My “Voice?” which you’ll find HERE.)
Two New Services – Proofing and Editing * Wrap-up
What do we proof and/or edit? We can work on websites, flyers, banners, posters, mass emails, and even videos. Whether you use Microsoft Office software, WordPerfect, Google Docs, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Acrobat, Apple Pages, or more, we can work with you. If you have questions or want to know about pricing, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Social Media Agency
Social Media is everywhere! If you have a company, business, or organization that you want/need to promote, you must be present on the various Social Media platforms. We can create posts that will bring business your way. We can advise you on what you can post, when to post, and when to pay for an ad.
For those of you on Florida’s Treasure Coast, you may be familiar with the Port Saint Lucie High School Drama musical presentations. We handle their Social Media and here’s a snapshot of their exposure in just the last week:
Are your Facebook posts reaching 10,000 other people in a week? Pretty good, don’t you think? We can help you achieve these same kinds of numbers.

There are always lots of things to do and think about when posting to Social Media. Let us take that part over for you so you can run your business. We operate on a three-month contract and then month-to-month. Find out more about our service by emailing me at email@example.com.
Please note that your conversations will be recorded.
