Global Proofreading and Copy-editing Ltd. is six years old! We started out as a small company working out of a small office in Witney in West Oxfordshire with only a handful of people working for us. Since then we have fluctuated in size, sometimes dramatically, but have sustained overall growth and maintained a loyal customer base. Some of our clients have been with us since we started doing business way back in 2012.
The ‘Global’ part of Global Proofreading and Copy-editing Ltd. would not have been possible without the Internet. Most of our clients are based overseas in over 50 countries: Colombia, South Korea, Lithuania, India, Egypt and Argentina to name but a few. During the time we have been open for business the importance of social media has continued to increase. It now dominates the marketplace to the point where widely used sales techniques such as cold calling are seen as old-fashioned and outmoded. A large proportion of new business is now initiated via the giants of social media such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, a proportion which is only going to grow. Global Proofreading and Copy-editing Ltd. has always done its best to keep up with this sea-change in business practice with regular Tweets, blogs, posts and updates.
There have been some major challenges along the way. For example, in 2015 we lost one of our main clients due to staff cutbacks in their headquarters. Overnight we said goodbye to a contract worth tens of thousands of pounds a month and five full-time members of staff. It was devastating, but we picked ourselves up, kept calm and carried on.
Today Global Proofreading and Copy-editing Ltd. is a well-established brand in the editing world. To have come this far is an achievement we are proud of and we look forward to the challenges the next six years will bring!
