What better day than April Fool's Day to start a new company? Yellowbright was launched on April 1, 2012, originally focused on the music/entertainment industry. Working in publicity and representing various artists, the company quickly grew to add management and booking services in addition to its core offering, PR. Writing on behalf of multiple acts, including press releases, marketing collateral, media pitches, TV and radio spots, and commercial pieces, the company eventually shifted to focus on general business and nonprofit organizations, providing social media and marketing writing while also offering freelance writing and editing services.
From there, the company pared down its services in order to evolve into what it is today: a writing and editing services firm that also offers a division for authors looking to pen their first (or 100th) book, receive valuable coaching during the writing process, and have their work edited to perfection.
Freelance writing, including journalism and creative projects are also offered through Yellowbright and the company works throughout the US.
Everything we do centers around the written word. From writing creative copy for marketing collateral, media spots, advertising, presentations, speeches, events, website copy, or social media, we do it and we do it well. Our writing services always include expert-level proofreading and editing, but companies/individuals may choose to hire us simply to put another set of eyes on what they have already written. In any case, we ensure that what goes out online and in print is perfection...in writing.
