Hi, Russ here,

Word has a bad rep as being complex, inconsistent, and unreliable.

I get that. I also understand exactly why.

The good news is there's an easy solution.

And it's all achieved through two simple steps:

1. Redesign your templates so they're simple and easy to use.

2. Teach your team exactly how to use them.

You already know how difficult and frustrating Word is but the chances are you don't know why.

The problem is, because your documentation is specific to you, and no Udemy course, YouTube video, or book will ever be able to provide the answer because they're just too generic.

And because they try and cater to everyone, they miss the mark by a long shot.

What you need is a specialist, an expert.

One who understands exactly how Word works and is both experienced enough to understand your business needs and what you're trying to achieve.

Russ suited and booted

"Working with Russ answers once and for all, "what's the difference between working with a professional/specialist vs an amateur/generalist?" (Steve Pinckney, Conceptia)

"Amazing freelancer. Russ has forgot more about WORD than I’ll ever be able to learn. He took what could have been an impossible task and made it incredibly successful." (Tim, Innovatory Consulting)

That's where I come in.
Having 'cracked' Word's code over 20-years ago, I can help show you that...

Microsoft Word is neither complicated nor difficult...

It just needs to be setup and used in a certain way (hence my 2-step approach, above).

Yet this so rarely happens within organizations.

In most cases, you inherit the tools, are told to get on with it, and persevere through the pain because 'that's what we've always done'.

The best analogy for what you need is to compare building Word templates with building a house...

Would you build a house without laying the right foundations?

Of course not, yet this is what your organization has been doing with Word and your documentation.

And if documentation is key to your business, you need solid, not shaky, foundations.

Crumbling house

Word must be setup and used in a specific way

Because when is it, it then becomes simple, logical, consistent, and reliable.

I've proven that in the 20+ years I've been helping organizations:

  • Solve their Word problems
  • Rebrand and redesign their Word documents/templates
  • Train/educate their staff on how to use those designs correctly.
Word Is Logical, Easy to use, and Consistent

If you don't...

Screwing your whole document up because you moved an image on page 5 or changed the formatting in a paragraph on page 3 is not fun.

It's time-consuming, costly, and frustrating.

These errors should not be happening, and without knowing why, it won't get any better or different.

Whereas, if you do it's a whole new ballgame...

The good news is, when Word's setup and used correctly...

Microsoft Word is a PLEASURE to use

As you've seen, Word should be a JOY to use.

Even better are the potential benefits...

Achieve brand consistency

Build trust, enhance recognition, and strengthen customer loyalty.

Claw back wasted time

No more formatting errors, reworking inconsistencies, or unwanted surprises.

Save money

Create professional documentation with ease, precision, and certainty.

Eliminate frustrations

Software should work as intended. Now it will.

Better team morale

Imagine replacing cursing and gritted teeth with a smile.

Improve efficiency

With templates that work and authors with the know-how.


Boost professionalism

And increase credibility, trust, and client relationships.

Enhance communication

Finally, everyone's talking the same language.

Better planning & precision

Lets you set and meet deadlines with confidence.

And the savings can (and should) be phenomenal...​

If you're the sole author in your organization and can save 10, 20 or more hours per month...

...imagine what can be achieved when you have a team of authors working on your documents or reports.

This was exactly the case with DriverTrett, and how I saved them between $100,000-$200,000 per year:

What would results like that do for your organization?

Trust and communication are EVERYTHING!

To me, they’re not just words and when I’m helping clients, I’m THE most communicative person in the world. I've never missed a deadline and my guarantee to you is that you'll never need to chase me to find out what's going on. Rest-assured, I'll update you every step of the way.
