Standalone editorial now available

With the rollout of our standalone editorial feature, customers can now consolidate all their digital editing needs within the Tempesta Media platform. This feature will save customers additional time and money while maintaining consistent quality.
Scaling content marketing programs, without sacrificing quality, has been a cornerstone of Tempesta Media’s solution. Over the past year, many of our customers have requested the ability to submit their own internally produced content for editing. We are happy to announce the rollout of our standalone editing service. This new capability is now available across all content subscription levels. Here are a few highlights:

Proofreading

Proofreading ensures your existing content is error-free. This option lies within our editing only services and offers you the most basic level of professional editing. After you provide us with your content, we will edit for any grammar errors, typos, and formatting inconsistencies to ensure overall copy cleanliness.

Deep Dive Editing

Deep dive editing is our more advanced editing option. You receive full editing for your content. On the most basic level, we will edit the copy for any grammar errors, typos, and formatting inconsistencies. Additionally, we will ask that you fill out our Voice Profile® questionnaire, which describes your brand. With this Voice Profile, we will ensure your content accurately aligns with your company’s vision. We will edit for components such as tone, style, and overall message.
