Solving problems through communication, Mightier Than The Sword Consulting can help you define your message and express it in the most effective way possible.

For any document—technical, business, marketing—the primary objective is clear communication. Whether touting your products or detailing how to use them, the better written and designed your document is, the more likely it is to succeed at conveying your message to your customers or colleagues.

Mightier Than The Sword Consulting can help you achieve that success with concise, creative, and easy-to-read materials that can be delivered in hardcopy or electronically.

Part-Time Communications Management

In the scramble to keep a business going, some things get put off. For a lot of smaller business owners, there’s never enough time to get to a brochure or website update or blog entry or newsletter or press release—a significant problem because those are all the the ways to communicate with customers and prospects.

Providing part-time communications management at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time communications manager, Mightier Than The Sword Consulting’s package of services is always tailored to meet each client’s unique needs, handling their communications effort so they can focus on the tasks that keep their business running and growing.

Project Services

Available for part-time consulting and telecommuting as well as full-time and on-site in the St. Louis area, Mightier Than The Sword Consulting’s communications project services include technical writing, business writing, and editorial assistance. Projects handled range from user manuals, training materials, and online help to  policy handbooks, press releases, newsletters, presentations, flyers, brochures, and web design and content.

Technical Writing

Good technical writing does three things:

  • It makes complex processes easy to understand by breaking it into easy-to-follow steps with clear and concise explanations of related concepts.
  • It increases the value of your products, helping customers leverage the most from their purchase while raising their satisfaction.
  • It saves you money by freeing your key knowledge resources from ongoing interruption while providing your employees and customers with concrete explanations of your procedures and best practices.

User manuals, training materials, online help, software and hardware documentation, product datasheets, quick reference sheets and cards, policy and procedure documents and charts, multimedia presentations— Mightier Than The Sword Consulting can deliver materials that get your technical information in the hands of the people who need it.

Business Writing

In business writing, message is key. Whether communicating policy to an internal audience or persuading customers, good business writing must always convey specific information and ideas that produce change in the reader. Handling diverse materials such as policies, handbooks, newsletters, press releases, product datasheets, proposals, presentations, flyers, brochures, and web content, Mightier Than The Sword Consulting can help you get your message across with the right materials targeted for the right audience.

Sometimes, your existing communications materials just need a professional polish. Mightier Than The Sword Consulting provides a full range of editorial assistance, from copyediting and proofreading to layout and design to research and writing.
