A few words from some happy clients…
After meeting Rachel at a networking event, I immediately decided to get in touch. At Design Hive, we offer a range of services that include branding, graphic design and website design, so Rachel’s proof reading skills are a perfect fit for our business. Rachel’s first project with Design Hive, was to proof our brand new website. Rachel was quick and efficient, she paid great attention to detail and gave a comprehensive review of the site. We were delighted to work with Rachel and are very excited to launch our new website www.thedesignhive.co.uk very shortly. Rachel comes highly recommended and we will be back with future work.

I asked Barko’s Editorial to proofread the main pages of my website and my most recent blogs. Rachel found errors on the site that I wrote myself but I had never noticed. She was accurate and thorough, and the changes she made have made my website better.
My website is my window to the world and my main opportunity to get new clients and business. Rachel improved the copy, and I can now have more confidence that when people visit my site they’ll have a positive first impression. I would highly recommend Barko’s Editorial to anyone wanting to improve their website.

Copy-editing and Copywriting testimonial
I maintain my own website but I cannot see the wood for the trees when it comes to errors in the content. It’s usually at the end of the week, and I’m adding case studies to showcase a project we have completed that week. Although I enjoy creating content for the site, it’s usually the last job on my list and I’m in a hurry. Then I get home, re-read what I have written and pop back to the office to correct my grammar. Even then, I still miss errors I have made.
We employed Rachel to proofread our site and give us feedback. She meticulously scrutinised every word, page and broken link on our website, and provided us with a comprehensive guide, not just of corrections to be made but also how to rephrase and improve our wording so it is easier for private clients to read rather than other tradespeople.
Having a second pair of eyes has been absolutely invaluable, and one thing that I liked most was her honesty: “your About Us needs some work.” We had mentioned irrelevant qualifications and then practically listed a whole load of trade terms that didn’t speak to who we were trying to attract. Rachel pointed this out in a professional manner that didn’t make us feel judged and also made suggestions as to how we could improve it.
We have now employed Rachel to assist us in re-writing these pages, ensuring we are more appealing to our target market, rather than boring potential clients with technical jargon we would use at the trade counter.
We are very, very pleased with the results and would highly recommend her.
