Content Development

Whatever the medium of choice, quality writing is integral to effective public relations and communications strategies. Broad Reach prides itself on the quality and breadth of its writing and editing expertise. Whether developing a by-line article, executive speech, website content or a call to action, our team of award-winning writers ensures our clients’ messages are clearly and effectively communicated to their audiences. Our capabilities in this area include, but are not limited to:

+ Abstract Development

Abstracts can be a cost-effective means for placing articles and generating interest in the media. Broad Reach experts work with clients to develop story concepts and liaise with editors of targeted publications to secure interviews or by-line article opportunities.

+ Brochures and Marketing Collateral

Broad Reach helps clients develop content for a wide range of support materials that raise brand awareness, drive sales and/or educate audiences. From mailers and handouts to product and sales sheets, we produce collateral that is compelling, engaging and on target.

+ By-line Articles

Our writing team and subject matter experts work with clients to develop compelling story ideas and place by-line articles that will generate interest with industry or mainstream media. We also write articles, case studies, opinion pieces, and company profiles, among others.

+ Editing

Broad Reach knows that quality editing is an essential step in every communications project. Our expert editors enhance our clients’ written products with a series of reviews that take place throughout the creative process. Our editors polish our clients’ work until it is at its best, while maintaining quality control. Editing can include, but is not limited to, checking for consistency, editing for grammar and spelling, organizing and refining content, clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, and fact checking.

+ Employee Communications

Broad Reach consultants help organizations develop effective employee communications programs, and provide ongoing writing and editing support. Our expertise includes employee newsletters, corporate announcements, change management collateral, training guides, and more.

+ Intranet Content

The intranet is an integral part of communicating ideas, change initiatives, policies and procedures, as well as training support and more. From planning through to execution, Broad Reach consultants work with in-house client marketing and design teams to develop clear, concise and effective employee-based intranet communications strategies, and content.

+ Newsletters

Broad Reach designs, writes and produces tightly written, compelling newsletters for internal and external audiences. These can be used to raise brand awareness, increase company credibility, highlight new initiatives and/or drive more sales through effective communication with employees, business partners and clients.

+ Proofreading

Broad Reach believes that proofreading is an important final step in the creative process. Proofreading is sometimes confused with editing, but they are very different processes. Proofreading is done after the writing and editing is complete. It is the final check before a document goes to print and is often the last place to catch errors. Proofreading can be done on Word or PDF documents. It can include, but is not limited to, incorporating clients’ final changes, reviewing the overall quality of images and layout, checking page breaks and location of images, ensuring headings are accurate and consistent, and finalizing the table of contents and all cross-references.

+ Speech Writing

Our writers have extensive experience developing engaging and highly effective speeches and presentations for annual general meetings, product launches, employee events, awards galas, office openings and other corporate events. We also prepare supporting slides and other collateral to ensure key messages are clearly communicated.

+ Website Content

Broad Reach has extensive experience developing website content for clients – from initial concept and site mapping to content development, editing and design. We ensure the copy is concise, engaging and reflects the unique personality and messaging of each client. We can also liaise with in-house or external designers to construct a complete online presence.

+ White Papers and Thought Leadership

Our writers work closely with our clients to develop thought leadership pieces that showcase their expertise on key industry topics and position them as leaders in their fields. They have worked on a broad range of assignments, from brief industry perspectives to extended documents that provide a global point of view on an industry sector or issue. We also leverage our extensive media database to generate coverage for these documents in key industry publications.
