Welcome! My name is Frank Herr, and “Run It By Frank” is my convenient copy editing service for anyone who writes their own marketing material (“copy”) and wants to have it reviewed by a professional writer before it goes out the door.
Wording not perfect yet? Run it by me and I’ll make your copy clearer and more eloquent.
For the last 30 years, my colleagues and clients have been asking me to review their business writing, because they have valued my ability to help them find the right words to express exactly what they’re trying to say.
This site offers my copy editing services in a way that makes it easy for you to get your documents reviewed quickly and professionally.
Please use the form below to see the cost of your editing job, and, once you select the price and turnaround time that's best for you, to place your order. I look forward to hearing from you!

What happens next?
WHEN YOU CLICK THE ORDER BUTTON ABOVE, I'll receive an email with your details, and I'll respond as soon as possible a) to confirm that I received your order, and b) to confirm if I can deliver the edits within your requested turnaround time. If I can, the turnaround clock starts, and I start editing your doc.
IF I CAN'T MEET YOUR REQUESTED TURNAROUND TIME, I'll propose a new one in my email reply, with an adjusted price. You can accept or reject the new turnaround time and price in your email reply. If you accept, the turnaround clock starts and I start editing your doc.
WHEN THE JOB IS DONE, I will send you:
- a Microsoft Word version of your doc with my edits shown as revision markings, so you can see what changes I made. This will allow you to accept or reject any specific edits, and easily use the new text in any web page or marketing piece;
- a PDF version of your edited doc, showing how it reads with all my edits accepted; and
- a PayPal invoice that you can pay with either your PayPal account, or with a credit card.
