I'm thinking about offering a small business owner a copy edited version of their website for free once a quarter (ish). HOWEVER, I'm worried that receiving unsolicited edits would be awkward and maybe a little humiliating... which obviously I don't want to do.
I realize I could just offer this free service and allow interested people to sign up, but there's so many businesses I personally love who need help, but may not know they need help. And I don't want to solicit my services, either. It feels icky to me, like I'm pointing out where they're falling short and then turning it into a pitch. I don't know how to explain it.
I really want to help without seeming out of line. What do you guys think? Is there any way to make something like this work or is it just an off-limits territory?
