Our clients talk about us.

Eileen undertook a multi-step, complex writing project and met our goal of giving our company a more solid presence on the web. She’s easy to work with, attentive to details and diligent, and worked with us to complete our project quickly and well. Eileen is wise about the web and added value to our brand.

Barbara is a genius at reducing complex concepts to their essence and expressing them in clear, succinct prose. She’s utterly reliable and has bailed me out of tight spots more times than I can count. And on top of all that, she’s fun to work with.

Paula Kepos
President,

We hired Eileen Galen and Editopian for a project involving writing and web marketing savvy. She’s flexible and easy to work with. She interviewed me, understood my company’s needs, and quickly delivered a great product. Whether it’s writing, editing, internet marketing help, or issues involving judgment calls, Editopian does a terrific job.

Patrick Markle
Chairman of the Board,
Figaro Systems

We used Eileen for some online/social identity work, and I have recommended her to fellow colleagues, associates and friends ever since. Her work was very impressive and effective.

I was referred to Eileen to help us with specialized online marketing since I had no idea where to begin. She interviewed me and took care of the rest! I really appreciated her ability to do great work for us — very quickly, professionally, and at a reasonable cost.

Mark Moran,
Chief Executive Officer,
Dulcinea Media

We had the good fortune to work with Eileen for several years . She helped us with a variety of electronic marketing initiatives including editing our print and ezine articles, running our blog (including taking our ideas and quickly and effectively editing them) and assisting our participation in Wikipedia. Eileen really understands how these media work and was able to maximize the impact of our marketing expenditures. She is just plain great. I would recommend her to anyone.

CEO and President, Cerebyte

Eileen is quick, efficient and a genius at editing the content that goes on my business website and print materials. Eileen knows how to make it fun and informational for the reader, and Google friendly for the internet. Thanks Eileen for making life so much easier.

Kari Neigebauer Koch
Co-owner, Circle Studio

Eileen did valuable research, writing, and editing work for Mangrove Fund’s website and additional online marketing efforts. She is smart, creative, and conscientious.

Bill Pierznik
Founder, Mangrove Fund

Editing technical papers of a philosophical nature requires an understanding of abstract and complex intent. Eileen was remarkable in her skills at providing, not just the usual cleaning and tidying of the writing, but a clear sense of how to do such things in the service of communicating the ideas. She is a remarkably intelligent editor and her brilliance is applied to the purpose of the project’s intention. Eileen is as at home in technical philosophical exercises as she is in playful fiction, and direct and kind in her suggestions. I recommend her highly for any writing project involving precise and rigorous standards.

Eileen helped me communicate more efficiently with clients and prospective clients—and in ways I had not thought of before. We strengthened my web presence and she helped me with correspondence to expand my real estate business. She understands my field and how to best convey who I am to my customers, with good results. Real estate in a recession is challenging enough, so it’s a relief to know she is available to help with writing and online marketing.

Jean Stoll
Broker,
Hasson Company Realtors

I have had the good fortune of working closely with Barbara on dozens of publishing projects over several years, and she consistently demonstrated an uncanny ability to distill mountains of epidemiological data into clear, understandable prose for the general reader. But more important, Barbara used her keen insights into the practical implications of the data to help motivate people to make positive changes that would have a lasting impact on their health. Plus, she’s an absolute joy to work with.

Joe Bonyata
Freelance Book Editor

When I came on as a new partner to our small business, I was nervous about navigating our website and using our other marketing tools. I had never blogged, used WordPress and had never used an email marketing program. Eileen sat with me and took me through each program, step by step and at my own pace. Eileen and her team have always been prompt and available if I get stuck and/or have any questions or need a quick content edit. I can now navigate ‘behind the scenes” of my own site, make basic changes, send mass emails to my clients with confidence and blog with the best of them! Eileen and Editopian gave me the knowledge and confidence to manage web essentials of my small business while staying within my budget, but most importantly, to grow!
