“Your an Idiot”
To Edit Or Not To Edit
I have seen this sentence on countless social media sites.
Oh the irony of calling someone an idiot while using poor grammar.
People often berate and laugh at the person posting, “Your an idiot”, and not whoever made the original post.
English is hard. Many times, we are prejudged on whether we are intelligent or unintelligent based on our command of the English language.
If you’re a non-native English speaker, then it can be even harder because the English language requires a very precise sentence structure.
People these days even associate poor English with scammers and people out to cause trouble on the internet.
Your personal relationships can suffer, your business can suffer, and you can become a laughing stock based on the words that you send out to the internet.
Just think of the impact a tweet like this could have coming from your business.
Most of the time it is auto-correct that does you in. Maybe you fully intended on using the correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation but your device got in the way.
In order for you to stay connected to your customers you need to use social media.
You would benefit greatly by having someone edit your posts, emails, and website content. I’m not suggesting you should have someone double check every tweet, but you should really have someone that can double check the important stuff.
Most people can’t afford to have a professional editor on staff 24/7 to compose web content, social media posts, press releases, etc.
That’s where I come in. I can help you make sure that your messages are always perfectly written and have the IMPACT necessary to compete for your reader’s attention.
You need someone that is affordable, has quick turnaround, and is available to discuss your needs.
