A Missed Comma Could Cost You Business … Money

If you want your writing, your message, your communication to make sense and not confuse the reader, the little things, like punctuation, can make a big difference. In a highly competitive marketplace, the up-and-coming business is waiting for your message to fail so they can take over your accounts. And if you are the up-and-coming business, your message better be clear, engaging, and effective. The wrong or ignored comma or other punctuation might send the wrong message … that you are careless and sloppy, that details do not matter. This economy is not forgiving.

Do you have business communication, a memo, or an advertising letter that needs some help? Does it lack that “certain something”? Are you “borrowing” other companies’ messages or reusing old, tired copy?

Let me give you a quote on copy editing, proofreading, rewriting, or customized writing for your project.
