one extra word, your way

copywriting done simply 

Sometimes you have copy written but, well, it's not quite right.

 

It just needs a new pair of eyes. A bit more branding. A refresh. Or a good deep clean.

'

When you've already got copy in place, briefing a copywriter seems like unnecessary hassle. And takes time you haven't got to spare.

 

You don't want the hassle of filling in a brief or following a process. You just want your copy. You want the words written. Quickly and easily. 

1 Extra Extra Word

our approach

We like a new brief as much as anyone.

 

And we enjoy having a blank sheet to fill with words.

 

But more than that, we love to simplify the complicated.

We don't see the value of a process for the sake of a process. So when you have copy in place already, we make it easy for you to get that one extra, extra word. 

1 Extra Extra Word offers the benefits of a copywriting service. Without the extra process. One draft. No brief required.

Here's how it works:

1. Choose the package that works for you.

2. Send us the existing copy.

3. We return it, improved upon as per your chosen package.

4. Choose to have the copy either marked-up or written-ready to publish. 

The only brief involved is the turnaround time.  

You may have already run the copy through an online editing tool.

Bronze gives you proofing with the extra benefit of common sense and a human eye.
