Using a LinkedIn proofreading service will ensure you look and ‘sound’ professional.
One written misstep could repel potential job and business opportunities
The generation-spanning grip of social media’s influence on our daily interactions shows no signs of loosening. In the working community, while we are perhaps less likely to be lured by the attraction of Snapchat animal filters (well, you’d hope), the pervasive presence of business networking sites such as LinkedIn – affording us a platform for promotion of our experience and expertise to a global audience within a couple of clicks – make the portrayal of our (genuine) best selves no less desirable. Every one of us now has the capacity, literally at our fingertips, to be our own agent and publicist, though this is arguably a mixed blessing when one written misstep could repel multiple potential contacts and business opportunities without our ever being aware. That’s where our LinkedIn proofreading service comes in!
For over a decade, we have been providing audio transcription, proofreading and copy-editing services, VoiceNotes has been acutely aware that the old adage ‘all publicity is good publicity’ is far from the case, if what you are publicising is grammatically-flawed and/or unengaging written content, reflecting badly upon its author. To that end we have made it our mission since inception to provide that crucial degree of accuracy and polish to companies’ meeting notes, written communications, websites and brochures.
Since 2018 we have additionally been helping our clients improve their social media presence by providing a proofread LinkedIn profile to create or enhance their LinkedIn profile summaries.
Attract employers with a professional LinkedIn profile
Using a proofreading and copy-editing service to ‘look your best’ is really worth the time and money. If you want to save costs then find a friend to read through your profile. Proofreading isn’t as expensive as audio transcription so write down in your words first rather than dictate an audio file to save some money.
What our LinkedIn proofreading service costs
On an average profile, we charge from £10 + vat.

If proofreading is the bread and butter of turning a document into a great piece of writing, then copy-editing is the filling. Long, convoluted sentences or inaccurate facts can ruin your work in the way that Marmite can ruin a sandwich (but that, of course, is just one opinion!).
In short, copy-editing is the next level up from proofreading. There is a certain element of copy-editing going on in our day-to-day operations, as we check names and other facts mentioned by our clients for accuracy, as well as correct any faux pas that we are all prone to making in everyday speech.
When you enlist our copy-editing services, we will not only make your written work read beautifully, we will also make it professional. If this is what you require, it’s important to understand that you are giving us permission to change, re-word or even re-write parts of your work to ensure:
- It is fluid and cohesive.
- That any factual errors are corrected.
- In the case of any ESL pieces, that they are linguistically correct.
- There is consistency throughout in structure – paragraphs, formatting, etc.
