Personalized, Detailed Index Evaluations.
Don't have the time or budget for full training? The answer is evaluation. I offer complete index
evaluations for $100-$300, regardless of index length or complexity. This isn't about finding mistakes.
These evaluations cover everything: topic inclusion, structure and subentry use, language, audience accessibility, usability, multiple
posting, ... even appearance! You'll receive clear documentation of where
there's room for improvement, and how to do it.
Without trained, objective, professional feedback, it's impossible to do your job well.
So send your queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Instructional Audio CDs Now Available.
I've produced two instructional seminars on indexing and index evaluation.
