Medical Copywriters – Do They Really Exist?

As the manager of a medical writing business, I know how hard it can be to find professional medical writers who can write convincing sales copy.

“Science Writing That Sells. By Doctors, For People.”

Basically, every professional medical copywriter at The Med Writers understands both the science and how to sell it. Let’s be honest, how many other Ph.D. medical copywriters know the science behind your product or service so as to be able to write both authoritatively and convincingly about it?

It is a fact that it is the words on your website, brochure or email that sells your product or service, and if those words aren’t convincing, then all chances of getting sales are gone. Therefore, it is not only important, but vital, that you hire the best medical copywriter to take care of all of your medical copywriting needs. A regular medical writer or a regular copywriter is not going to cut it. If you want to BOOST SALES, you have no choice, you MUST hire a good MEDICAL COPYWRITER!

Formulating Your First Supplement Doesn’t Have To Be Scary

You recognize that the supplement market is sizzling right now and you want a piece of that pie. You’ve come up with a great idea for your first supplement, but where do you go from there? Any successful business owner will tell you that in order to get your new business off to a great start you should get the help and advice of someone experienced, someone who really knows what they are doing. That’s what you need to do: find an expert, someone who has experience in formulating supplements. They can hold your hand and help you through this new venture.
First of all, an expert supplement formulator can give you feedback on whether he/she feels that your supplement idea is really marketable, if it will be successful; and if not, they can make suggestions for changes or improvements. Once you’ve established that your idea for a supplement formulation can actually make money, your supplement formulator will help you to formulate the best supplement possible, ensuring that your formulation will be effective and safe. How will they do this?
Well, first they are going to see what the competition is doing, what ingredients they are using. Then, your supplement formulator will search for additional ingredients that are not yet being used, ones that may be more effective or safe, thus giving your supplement formulation an edge over the competitors. Once your supplement formulator has completed their research and gathered all the relevant information, they will then make a recommendation on which ingredients to include in your supplement formulation, and at what dosages.
However, your relationship with your supplement formulator doesn’t end there. They will also recommend a good manufacturer and handle any questions that the manufacturer may have regarding your supplement formulation. Basically, your supplement formulator will be with you every step of the way as you bring to life your idea for a new supplement formulation.

Professional Scientific Manuscript Editing: The Key to Getting Your Manuscript Published

Now that you’ve written your scientific manuscript, you need to get it published. However, you recognize that this is not always an easy task – after all there are hundreds, even thousands of scientific manuscripts submitted for publication to peer reviewed journals every week, but most of them end up rejected. You don’t want your research papers to meet the same fate. Therefore, it is vital that you get the help of experts — qualified science editors — who can properly edit your scientific manuscript to improve your chances of getting published with the fewest possible changes needed.

Furthermore, several of our science editors are adept at editing in both American and British English.

Our scientific manuscript editing services are available at different levels to suit your budget and needs. Your scientific manuscript can get a basic proofread, wherein our science editors will check for punctuation, spelling and grammar.

This includes looking for any places where the science doesn’t make sense, and correcting it if possible, or making a note for the author on how to improve it. If needed, our science editors can also format the manuscript and the EndNote references to the style of the journal you plan to submit it to.

If you are unsure which journal you should try to submit your scientific manuscript to, don’t worry. As part of our scientific manuscript editing services, we can help you out by suggesting which journals would be best suited for your particular manuscript.

Professors: Manuscript Editing CAN Be Fast and Easy

See if this situation describes you.  As a busy scientist you have too many things on your list.  Of course, your top priority is getting new manuscripts published!  The graduate students and post docs in your lab are hard at work doing new studies and producing interesting data.  You have them write up their manuscripts up, but then you have to put in a lot of time editing those manuscripts before they can be submitted to journals for publication.  This is especially true if English is not the first language for some of the graduate students and post docs.  While they may be incredibly talented and devoted scientists, they definitely are not science manuscript writers!

These poorly-written manuscripts start to pile up on your computer’s hard drive, just waiting for you to edit them. However, editing these manuscripts seems like such a daunting task that you find yourself wanting to put it off.  If editing manuscripts is not something you are good at, it may just be too overwhelming to even think about…so you keep putting it off.

How do I know your story so well? Because I’ve heard your story from several of our clients. You are not alone. This inability to quickly edit manuscripts is actually the case for most professors. Let us help you edit manuscripts the way that we have helped so many of your colleagues. We could be the reason that competing labs are able to get so many manuscripts published each year! It’s time for you to catch up. Hiring PhD manuscript editors is the secret.

Here’s how it works. You email us a copy of your manuscript (we’ll happily sign an NDA first if you want). We will take a look at the amount of work to be done and send you quotes for our 3 Levels of Manuscript Editing.

Level 1: This manuscript editing service is a proofread, where spelling, grammar and English usage problems are fixed to increase the clarity so it is easier to read and understand.  This includes looking for mistakes and correcting them.  This wouldn’t include any major changes or rearrangements to the manuscript.

Level 2: This manuscript editing service is the proofread outlined above in Level 1 plus a more in-depth editing to make major changes or rearrangements as necessary to improve the quality of the writing.  This includes looking for any places where the science doesn’t make sense, and correcting it if possible, or making a note for the author on how to improve it (for e.g. missing references or explanations).

Level 3:  This manuscript editing service is the edit outlined above in Level 1 and Level 2 plus formatting the manuscript and the EndNote references to match the style of the journal you plan to submit it to.

Once you pick the manuscript editing service that best suits your needs, we will get started.  You just need to authorize your university department to pay us from your grant or other budget and we’ll invoice them directly.  Then you can get back to your to-do list, while we edit your manuscript.  It will be done in anywhere from just a few days to 2 weeks.

Email us now to get PhD manuscript editors working on your projects ASAP.  Our email address is at the top right of the page in a green box.

How To Find A Reputable Doctor To Endorse Your Company’s Supplements

Is your new supplement formulation not getting the sales that you expected it would? A doctor endorsement for your supplement may be just what you need to help convince your potential customers that your product is safe and effective, and therefore worth their hard-earned money. But where do you find a reputable doctor to endorse your supplement? The Med Writers can provide you with such an endorsement.

The Med Writers is headed by Dr. Karen Vieira, who has a PhD in Biomedical Sciences and more than 10 years of experience with hands-on medical, scientific and nutritional research at Kraft Foods, in academia and in hospitals. She is author of many books and articles and speaker for many videos. Our team also includes other scientists with doctorates and masters degrees in pharmacology, botany and more, plus naturopathic doctors trained in the prescription of supplements. We have worked on about 20 supplement formulations to date, and have provided doctor endorsements for several more.

If you would like a doctor endorsement for your supplement formulation we will first take a detailed look at your formulation to ensure that it is safe and effective for its intended purpose. If we find that there are potential safety issues, or that the formulation can be changed in order to be more effective, we can make recommendations for its improvement, and help you to reformulate in order to implement those improvements. On the other hand, if we find that your supplement formulation is both safe and effective, we can provide you with a written and/or video doctor endorsement right away.

In view of the stiff competition in the supplement market, a doctor endorsement for your supplement is not really an option…it is absolutely necessary. The question then is not whether you can afford to get a doctor endorsement, but can you afford not to? Email or call today to see if your supplement fits our criteria for receiving a doctor endorsement.

High search engine ranking for medical and health sites–How?

You’re looking for a medical writer who knows search engine optimization (SEO) to help you get a high search engine ranking for your website. There is no doubt that there is stiff competition on the Internet for websites in the medical and healthcare niche. If you are publishing medical or health-related content on the Internet, you are far from alone. There are millions of other sites promoting health-related products or services. How do you make sure that your website gets a high search engine ranking and doesn’t end up on page 100 of your prospective customers’ Google searches?

A key factor in making sure you receive a high search engine ranking is choosing your medical writer carefully. That means hiring an expert medical writer experienced in SEO. Here’s the reason why. If you hire just any freelance writer to write your medical or health-related content or articles, they will simply search the web for information. Therefore, you are just going to end up with a bunch of rehashed information. While they may do a great job with SEO that initially will help your search engine ranking, the content will not be any different than any other site. What often gets medical and health sites a high search engine ranking is content that isn’t found on lots of other sites. You want people to go to your site and find the content helpful so they stick around to see more and even come back again.

What you need is a medical writer with access to medical journals and publications that provide all of the latest medical studies. Of course, this medical writer also needs to know how to find the best studies and facts to present in your articles and the ability to read them and extract the most relevant information.  Also make sure your medical writer can write this information up so it is clear and easy for your intended audience to read and understand. If your medical writer is all those things, then the result will be content that will be different then all the other stuff that is floating around out there. And you know what different means, right? It means that your medical content, because it is unique, will stand out, and it will receive a high search engine ranking.

Of course, in addition to providing great content, a professional medical writer will also know how to properly place keywords for SEO in order to further increase your chances of receiving a high search engine ranking.

If you would like to hire an experienced medical writer who can increase your website’s search engine ranking by providing original and accurate content that is search engine optimized (SEO), look no further. The Med Writers is a team of PhD-level scientists with formal writing and SEO training. We have written content, articles, blog posts and sales copy for hundreds of  medical, dental, biotechnology and health websites. We have the knowledge and experience that you need to help you attain a high search engine ranking, to get more potential customers looking at your website.

How to choose the best medical writer

Now that you’ve posted a great ad for your medical writing project, and received several promising proposals, you have the task of choosing the right medical writer or medical writing team for the job. What should you look for in the ideal medical writer or medical writing team?

Here are a few things that you should look for:
1. The right education – when it comes to medical writing and the liability issues that could come into play, you don’t want just any professional writer, you need someone who knows the subject matter.

2. Access to medical and scientific journals – you don’t want a writer who will just search the internet to find information, you want someone who has a subscription to medical and scientific journals, thereby providing all of the latest, relevant research for your medical writing project.

3. A large portfolio of samples – a writer’s samples say it all; they can show the depth of their knowledge and their writing skill. To gauge the diversity of their skill, look for a writer who has done several types of writing projects, such as blogs, articles, website content, brochures, sales copy, books and manuscripts to mention a few.

4. Unlimited revisions – let’s face it, every client has a different vision for their project, including you. Therefore, revisions are sometimes inevitable, even when you are using a professional medical writer. However, a professional medical writer will not be afraid to offer free revisions in their price. This will protect you from any unexpected expenses that could come from having to get someone else rewrite or edit the work.

If you keep these four points in mind while reviewing the proposals you have received, you should be able to choose the right medical writer or medical writing team, one that will make any project you throw at them a success.

How To Use Elance Or Guru To Effectively Find Medical Writers

So, you have a medical writing project at hand and you want to find medical writers to work on it as freelancers or contractors. You’ve heard that Elance and Guru are good websites to find medical writers, so you decide to check them out. Here’s the thing though – people do find medical writers on Elance and Guru, but mostly there are a lot of cheap amateurs on there masquerading as professional medical writers. A key factor to help you find medical writers is writing the right kind of project description. Here are some points to keep in mind when writing your project description:

  • Since many professional medical writers specialize in a certain niche, indicate in your posting what the project is about. Of course, the more detail the better, but if privacy issues are involved and you cannot give a lot of details in regard to the topic in the public posting, that’s okay; but try to give at least a general description of what the project is about.
  • Be sure to include your desired word count. Professional medical writers usually charge on a per word basis, and will want to know the word count in order to place an accurate bid, whereas amateur writers will not care because they are just going to churn out low quality, duplicate content anyway.
  • Indicate who the audience will be for the project. Will it be for the general population or for doctors? A real medical writer will have different prices for medical professionals versus the general population since more research will be required and the language used will be different. Again, an amateur won’t really care. They will present the information the same way regardless of who is going to read it.
  • Put a reasonable budget for the project. Ten articles for under $500 is not a reasonable budget if you want to find medical writers. However, that budget will attract all the nut jobs out there, and you will end up having to wade through a bunch of applicants in order find maybe one good writer, or perhaps none at all. Professional medical writers will not undersell themselves.

Armed with these suggestions, you should be able to write a project description that will attract a good freelance medical writer on Elance or Guru. Now you know how to find medical writers on Elance and Guru! In a future post I will discuss how to select the best medical writer from the applicants you receive.
