2 Wordsmith openings available

July 19, 2022

By Phil Ransom

Introduced in April 2021, Wordsmith is designed to help leaders communicate well in print and online. Membership is limited to a small number of clients, ensuring quick turnaround and preferential treatment.  As year-end approaches I currently have room for two  Wordsmith units:

1 Solo or small office unit:
A lead (owner, Exec. Director).
1 or 2 team members who create or work with content can be added, for a
maximum of three in the unit.

1 Larger office unit:
A C-level executive.
One executive or administrative assistant can be added,
a maximum of two in the unit.

Wordsmith Rationale: 

We share our favorite experts and specialists with others. When we’re established clients, we don’t wait long when we need their skills.  Our favorite experts work for us a few hours at a time and their quality workmanship results in our peace of mind. It’s worth every penny.

How many of these do you have working relationships with?
• Mechanic
• Physician
• Attorney
• Pharmacist
• Barber/Stylist
• Dentist
• Personal Trainer
• HVAC Specialist
• ____________ others

Did writer/ editor come to mind?
It should have.

Clarity is vital to your effectiveness.
At work with staff & volunteers, policies & instructions, it’s vital that readers understand what you mean right away.

Clarifying chews up time and resources. Mishaps cost even more and are sometimes catastrophic.

Clear communication helps you avoid such things.  

Def: to apply craftsman-like skills to word use.

How Wordsmith works: 

Wordsmith members send me items to review, tweak, or edit. I turn them around in a few hours. There’s no minimum or maximum to what a member can send me each month – because workflow varies through the year.

Imagine saying to your assistant, “Let’s have Phil wordsmith this,” knowing it’s paid for.  You’ll have it back and out the door in less time than it would have taken to get a quote.

Wordsmith members frequently say things like:

  •  “Just send me a Loom review, I’ll fix what you suggest.” (Loom is perfect for this.. and free to you)
  •  “I just need this checked over – it says what I want it to.”
  •  “Ok… I wrote this in a hurry… it may need some serious wordsmithing.”

Wordsmith is not an automated system.  We’re in quality craftsmanship, artisan mode.

If this sounds like something your and your immediate team needs, send me a note ( phil@philipransom.com )  with Wordsmith Program in the subject line and we’ll schedule ten minutes or so to talk about specifics.  I look forward to serving as the designated Wordsmith on your team of specialists.
