Proofreading your content is an excellent alternative to consider if the budget you have available for your website or content to be created is little. You can create the content and then just have it verified and corrected by a professional.
Why hiring a freelancer?
Since proofreading is normally requested for small projects or large-scale projects that don’t involve technical language (medical, scientific), it doesn’t make much sense to invest hundreds of dollars for a company to do it. This is the kind of job that can be easily performed by a freelancer.
If as a professional you consider a company to be more reliable and have the budget for it, it’s perfectly understandable. However, if you are considering using a proofreading tool, I must advise you it’s not the best idea.
Don’t ever use tools for proofreading content that was not made by professionals
It’s okay and not a critical issue if you decided to save some costs on your project by doing some things on your own. But the least you can do if your purpose is to have a professional, high-quality website or content is leaving the proofreading and editing in the hands of someone experienced.
There’s nothing more expensive than something free (or cheap).
And this goes a bit further into basic marketing and business strategy: no successful business established their way by saving costs in an extreme way and having mediocre content or products as a result.
Benefits of requesting proofreading to a professional
Either if you created the content yourself or hired someone else to do it for you, it’s always recommended to have a final look into it, to make sure it’s reflecting your idea in a proper way. Remember that as mentioned in our SEO article, not all SEO experts are exceptional writers and minor mistakes might be done. Mistakes not easily detected for most, but very common to fix for a proofreader.
Other benefits or qualities of proofreading your content with a professional or freelancer:
They can spot mistranslations due to slang usage or regionalism and improve them.
Since it’s a more personal touch to work directly with a freelancer, instead that with a company, it’s easier to ensure the concept of the project is effectively represented in the text.
Proofreading your content is not only checking the grammar and orthography, it’s moreover about improving the text. It guarantees it’s easy to read, clear language for native and non-native people, etc.
