Frequently asked questions

What can a professional writer do for me?

Writing isn’t everyone’s jam, but at Swift Communications, it’s our bread and butter.

Memorable marketing, catchy ad copy and snappy speech writing are all in a day’s work for a professional writer.

While writing and communications services come at a cost, you’ll likely find the investment pays for itself in enhancing your brand and expanding your field of reach.

Whether you want to polish up your board members’ bios or send out social media posts that really sing, we’re here to help.

Why should I consider outsourcing my social media management?

Let’s face it, managing social media accounts can often feel like a full-time job. Allowing someone else to take on that task can free you up for more pressing things. By taking a look at your upcoming projects and events, Swift Communications can design a plan in which your social media posts are essentially planned out up to a year in advance, in addition to ongoing updates on what’s new.

We live in a world of constant changes. With our help, you can stay on top of your social media messaging and provide updates in a timely manner, without feeling like you’re tied down to your keyboard or phone.

How can a newsletter help my organization?

Whether distributed weekly, monthly or quarterly, a great newsletter can provide a quick yet thorough insight into what your business or organization has been up to. From welcoming new members to celebrating success, a newsletter is a one-stop shop for your supporters to stay up to date on all the latest happenings. It’s also a great way to make potential members and clients see all the great things you have to offer.

What exactly is a blog and how can it help me communicate?

The term blog was coined in 1999 as the shortened version of weblog, which refers to logging information into the World Wide Web.

Since then it has become a ubiquitous term for a method of conveying a message online.

While blogs 1,500 to 2,500 words in length are said to rank higher on search engines, shorter blogs of 400-500 words will do the trick of conveying your message in a more concise way that’s more likely to be read all the way to the end.

Blogs can be used as a way for a CEO or nonprofit executive to reach out to clients and followers, or they can be used to communicate with employees or team members. Whatever message you need to send, Swift Communications can help you do so in crisp language that will engage your readers and get your point across in a memorable way.

How can press releases help convey my message to the public?

Press releases are information-packed announcements designed to share your news with the world. By sending press releases to media outlets like newspapers, radio and television stations, you increase your chances of having your news shared in a meaningful way versus simply the “who, what, when, where” basics.

A professionally-written press release will contain all the pertinent information the public needs to know, right down to quoted sources and contact information. By taking out the legwork, you make it easier for busy reporters and editors to share your information since the story has already been prepared for them.

With more than 30 years experience writing for multiple local, regional and statewide newspapers and magazines, Swift Communications knows exactly what it takes to get your event or story noticed.

How can I get help creating or maintaining a website?

We live in a world ruled by the World Wide Web. Next to social media, a sharp-looking website is often the very best way to communicate your message, image and services to the public.

Creating the content for a website can seem overwhelming to many, but Swift Communications is here to help. Shelley can help you walk through the process step by step, creating pages and filling them with eye-catching copy that can take your organization to the next level. A professional online presence is essential to success. Let us help make you shine!
