Published on May 10, 2016
Crowd Content is working on launching an editing platform. Right now, it’s only available in Beta for select accounts.
From a freelance writer’s standpoint, this is good news; another platform means another opportunity to earn money. However, if you’re a marketer or content manager working for a large company, it’s awesome news.
Keep reading to find out why.
My Experience as an Editor
I’ve worked as a writer for Crowd Content for a couple of years, and I was excited to be involved with a different aspect of content creation.
The editing platform has given me the opportunity to connect with other writers and editors. As an unexpected bonus, I’ve become more accustomed to focusing on the finer details of building quality content, and I’ve been able to improve the quality of my own work.
Teamwork: Because No Writer is an Island
If you’re a writer, you’ve probably noticed that fellow writers give the best and most helpful feedback. Why? Simple. They “get” the process. They “get” the fact that the first draft isn’t always going to be perfect.
They’re able to look at the content through the lens of their own experience, catching little errors and providing advice on how to improve its overall quality.
As part of an editing team, I not only have the benefit of my own experience, but also the experience of other strong writers. No matter the time of day, I can consult with other editors on any questions I might have about a particular issue.
This ensures that we are able to efficiently complete high volume projects without sacrificing quality.
The Key to Scalability
Even if you haven’t worked with any Crowd Content writers before, a few seconds of scrolling through the testimonials on our homepage will tell you that they know a thing or two about providing high quality content.
Herein lies the awesomeness for large companies: our editing platform allows us to continue providing the same high quality content on a much larger scale.
Here are three ways that the new editing platform is the key to scalability.
1. A Quicker Process
The editing platform allows writers to move through a project more quickly. Once they’ve submitted the first draft of their content, an editor can look it over and provide almost instant feedback.
Revisions can be completed within minutes of that first submission. This has significantly reduced the turnaround time for large batches.
2. A Few Extra Sets of Eyes
Have you ever seen a terrible advertisement or product description that made you wonder, “Am I the only one who sees how bad this is?” A typo and a poorly constructed sentence are all it takes to pull a brand’s credibility to pieces.
The editing platform eliminates that risk by ensuring that each piece of content is carefully examined on multiple levels.
3. Consistently High Quality
If you’ve worked with a team of writers before, then you know that one of the biggest challenges is ensuring consistent quality, styling and voice.
The editing platform allows us to ensure that each piece of content accurately conveys your brand’s voice, even if you have 200 writers working on your project.
Stay tuned for more info and updates as the editing platform is being built.
