    Core Messaging Services

    Words for the yes you want.

    Command attention. Compel action. And keep your audience dialled in all the way to yes. Fill a blank page with original messaging you’ll be proud to share with the world.

    A green light you can trust.

    Sleep easier knowing your grammar, spelling and punctuation are sound, your messaging is consistent with the style guide and files are delivered with confidence.

    Tight messaging for a clean delivery.    

    Less jargon. More punch. Faster paths to points. Human edits for human readers who’ll appreciate a clear message they can understand the first time.

    French Translation:
    Adaptations that feel original.

    Match the English’s tone, intent, persuasiveness and emotional centre so you get the same reactions and results from your Francophone audiences.



    The brand messaging cheat sheet.

    All your value propositions from contact to contract in a single document that will guide every aspect of your marketing effort.


    External editors for internal communications.

    Get your first thoughts turned into first drafts, your first drafts taken to final or your final draft proofed for presentation.


    Coverage for agencies in a pinch.

    Swamped with work? Lost resources to another agency? Not a writer? Your clients won’t know the difference and your team won’t feel short-staffed.

    Get your message right at the outset and everything else gets easier:


    Your creative teams will have a tone to match and a defined sandbox to play in, so they spend more time on the right paths.


    Your sales teams will have a strong pitch for any occasion and powerful proof points to reinforce your difference so their conversations last longer.


    You’ll have tight answers to any question about your business so you can walk confidently into every room.


    Your UX and product teams will have a destination to aim for and a feeling to capture so they’re building what the audience needs.


    Your hiring teams will have defined values to look for, so they have more success finding candidates who fit.

    And yes, even AI

    You’ll have distinctive hooks and ideas to feed your AI, so the main message is uniquely yours even if the filler content isn’t.

    Re:word has provided us with terrific French communications services. They have been effective in delivering timely, high-quality translations that capture the essence of the often very technical, scientific English text we provide to them. As a French speaker, it’s clear to see that Re:word puts in the time and effort required to produce excellent and accurate work, and I trust their ability to complete a wide range of translation projects.

    Re:word took the time to research our offering and understand our business. Not an easy task in our space. They then managed to distill our message into simple, compelling language that moves the needle, also not an easy task in our space.

    Brent Campbell

    Director, Product & Marketing • Wysdom AI

    We challenged Re:word with writing a high volume of very similar content for three different sub-brands of a major Canadian airline. The content was well-researched, nuanced and catered to each brand’s audience without sounding redundant. They’re skilled, reliable, professional, responsive, receptive to feedback and a pleasure to work with.

    Cate Cadbury

    Head of Creative Services • Mediative

    It has been such a pleasure working with the team at Re:word.

    I can’t believe the sheer volume of work Re:word is able to deal with on a weekly basis. They make sure we don’t spend a penny on re-printing because of a typo. I would wholeheartedly recommend Re:word to anyone looking for a true partner who delivers every time.

    Kim Campbell

    P&G Account Director • Match Marketing Group

    Re:word took what I was thinking and made it sing. They’re amazing and so easy to work with. I look forward to reading everything they write for us.

    Onlia engaged Re:word as a content creation partner for our online magazine. We had previously been working with a variety of freelancers including SMEs and former journalists, but quickly realized the superior quality of the premium content we got from Re:word. We consolidated all our content with Re:word and even expanded our scope with them to include cross-channel writing. Re:word executes our SEO-optimized magazine content with ease, bringing flare to insurance narratives.

So, like the responsible business owners we are, we leaned into ChatGPT AI copywriting, learned how to use it and identified its current limitations. By the time…… READ MORE

    Why not AI for the
    make-or-break messaging?

    Worse than forgettable messaging is similar messaging to your competitor. That’s a real possibility with AI, and a real turnoff for a captive audience — especially if your competitor gets to pitch before you.

    More messaging that matters

    If it’s on the list, we can do it. If it’s not on the list, we can probably still do it. Either way, let’s talk.
