What do you think when you see a business post content with typos? Do you cringe? Do you wonder if they care to thoroughly check?
If you’ve thought about these questions before, you’re not alone. Spelling errors have a greater impact than we give them recognition for. They can lead to misinterpretation of your message, imply you lack care, tarnish your brand’s credibility and reliability, and ultimately, result in lost revenue.
No one is perfect when checking content manually. Even with free spell checking tools, misspellings and content errors can still sneak through. Thankfully, there are a couple of tips you can try to improve your writing quality and avoid typos:
1. Take a Break
2. Always Proofread
3. Don’t Rely on Spell Check Tools
but whether they pick up on your company’s and industry’s terminology and whether a sentence makes sense is a whole other challenge.
For example, Grammarly does not pick up a spelling error in this sentence: “Before you send of content”.
Can you see where the error is? The writer meant “off” instead of “of”.
4. Read Your Content Out Loud
5. Double Check Names and Terminology
6. Get a Second Pair of Eyes
