About WikiNative

What makes WikiNative different from other paid Wikipedia agencies?

Imagine a world where high profile people and businesses have free reign over Wikipedia content about their organisations. Would you still trust Wikipedia?

Typically, paid Wikipedia editors carelessly promote their clients without considering the free knowledge movement’s aims. Such actions negatively impact both their client’s reputation and Wikipedia’s reputation.

The Wikipedia entry about you or your organisation is not an official communication. Therefore, brands should refrain from using routine communications strategies on Wikipedia. Instead, try hiring a communications strategist who specialises in the platform.

Whether you want to create a Wikipedia page for yourself or edit an existing Wikipedia page, I offer an ethical low-impact alternative to yes men who guarantee on-brand Wikipedia pages but fail to deliver due to a lack of platform knowledge.

WikiNative is not a copywriting agency. I do not post client-generated content, nor do I create adverts masquerading as Wikipedia content. I write genuine encyclopaedic content that complies with Wikipedia’s content policies and I implement the content without disrupting the vital work that Wikipedia does.

Services

Macro editing

While I don’t do one-off drive-by edits, I can work with you or your organisation to rework your Wikipedia page into a coherent encyclopaedia entry that complies with all of Wikipedia’s content policies and guidelines. I plan my edits off Wikipedia and work with my clients to create content that accurately reflects their organisation without violating the platform’s regulations or influencer marketing guidelines. Sometimes this involves cleaning up after less experienced paid Wikipedia editors so that I can remove unsightly maintenance tags, or it can involve updating pages to include the latest information from the mainstream press.

Notability assessment

Ever wondered if your business qualifies for a Wikipedia page? I offer a comprehensive notability assessment where I go over all of your company’s media and advise you on whether you have the sources for a Wikipedia page.

Page Creation

I research and write and upload Wikipedia pages in full compliance with the platform’s content policies and current influencer marketing guidelines. While I do not post client-generated content, I do work with clients to develop encyclopaedic content which reflects their organisation within Wikipedia’s confines. I don’t allow my clients to cherrypick sources. Instead, I work with my clients to find sources that demonstrate notability and add genuine value to my client’s search engine results. Crating encyclopaedic content of value to Wikipedia often involves a less is more approach, but the result is always the same, a Wikipedia page that sticks.

Consulting

I offer a range of consultancy services for businesses who want to educate themselves on the best way to inform their customers. For £60 per hour, I am happy to review drafts, give notes on proposed content and answer questions in the form of written reports or over Skype.
