Writing, editing and more

In business since 2000, Southside Communications Inc. works on strategic communications projects for business, government and non-profits, offering a full range of services.

Our goal is to tailor your message to your target audience in a style that ensures they will read it, understand it, and respond the way you want them to. Whatever the size or scope of your project, we can make it sizzle and help you get results.

  • We write

    The best writing immediately engages your intended audience and keeps them reading. We know how to do that, and we’ve done it in speeches, news releases, reports, web content and other strategic communications products.

  • We edit

    A good editor needs two distinct abilities: an eye for detail and consistency, and a natural sense of how words work and flow together. We apply these talents to every editing project, and edit only as much as you ask us to. Not sure? We’re happy to explain the differences between the types of editing we offer.

  • We manage

    Have you ever taken on a home renovation and resented having to be your own general contractor? Strategic communications projects also need someone to shepherd them through various stages of development while meeting deadlines and budgets. We can handle your entire project, overseeing translation, editing and graphic design as well.

How we work

Years of experience have taught us that the number one thing we need to understand is who
will read your finished product
and how you want them to respond.

Do the people you’re trying to reach have specialized knowledge of your subject? Or are they generalists? Are you trying to influence people and shape their opinions or spur them to take a particular action? Is your goal to educate, persuade, motivate or captivate?

Only once we understand your audience and objectives do we begin the writing or editing process. We believe the best communications products are based on extensive research, so we do that too. We welcome your feedback at every stage of the project. We respect your deadlines and budget.

We manage projects of all sizes, coordinating writers, editors, graphic designers and other contributors to make the job as straightforward as possible for you.
