As serious information professionals, regardless of our industry or role, we all write. Whether a business proposal, a blog post, or a marketing campaign, the words you let loose on the world say as much about you as your business attire, hairstyle, or choice of pet.
While you do not have to become a full-on grammar geek, word nerd, nitpicker of the nitty-gritty, or an overly zealous fussbudget, we believe anyone’s prose would benefit from a routine oil change. And why does it all matter? Incorrect usage can:
– Muddy your message
– Unsparkle your sales copy
– Confuse customers
– Make you – and, by association, your company – look hackish and dim
