Here’s an unfortunate thing to write in an email to a client:
Sure, they’ll probably figure out that you meant “contracts,” not “contacts.” But they might also make a mental note that they’ll need to double check your work since your attention to detail seems to be lacking. Not a great way to start a business relationship.
To err is human, but when you’re trying to make a good impression, grammatical errors and typos undermine your work. In fact, according to a Grammarly study of LinkedIn profiles, people who failed to progress to a director-level position within the first ten years of their careers also made 2.5 times as many grammatical mistakes as their director-level colleagues.
In a perfect world, we’d all have time to proofread and polish everything we write. But most of us have a million things on our to-do lists, and the precious minutes it takes to ask Google if we’re using “affect” and “effect” correctly can be a tough sacrifice.
That’s why over 30 million people have turned to Grammarly, a personal editor that helps you make sure everything you write is clear, effective, and mistake-free. The best part? It’s free.
