Proofreading is the most basic form of editing. That doesn't mean it's easy or quick. It just means it will lead to the fewest comments and changes. It is also the cheapest. A proofreader will find grammar, spelling, and spacing mistakes in your book. At the end of a proofread, you will have a cleaner piece of work, but will see no changes in the story itself.
A content edit means reading the book and identifying plot holes and other potential story issues. It means helping you build your characters, and making your story run smoothly. This takes time, and will build a better novel.
Line-by-line editing means polishing and smoothing out the text of your work. It takes an editor who can mimic your style and bring the best out of each sentence and paragraph of your work. This, combined with a content edit, will make the most meaningful impact on your novel.
