Services for Businesses and Website owners

In the business world, image and first impressions are extremely important. Many businesses spend a lot of money on producing well-designed, colourful and stylish communications such as advertising brochures, information pamphlets and websites. These are often the first contact potential customers have with the business concerned, and unfortunately, can come across as unprofessional and ineffective if the standard of English used is poor.

You therefore need to be sure that your communications present your business to the world in a professional manner, i.e. attractive, well-formatted and absolutely error-free using correctly spelt and grammatically correct English.

Anything less may give your potential customers the impression that you and your business are unprofessional, perhaps causing them to go elsewhere.

You may ask, why can't we just carry out a spelling and grammar check of our communications using a spellchecker in our word processor or web design program?

The answer to that is that spellcheckers have severe limitations in what they can actually correct For example, they cannot spot words spelt correctly but used wrongly, e.g. there or their, hole or whole. 

Bad English could lose you sales:

A study which was commissioned by the Royal Mail in 2005 indicated that bad grammar, spelling mistakes and poor design caused about £41 billion worth of lost sales! 74% of people said that mistakes and bad design did not instill trustthat  the business was legitimate, or professional, 30% said they would never buy anything from such a store and 26% declined to buy a product if their own name was spelled incorrectly.

Spelling mistakes and poor grammar will lose you sales even if you have a great offer. A mailshot, promotional flyer or even web copy with mistakes will deter customers.

I am able to proofread any communications you wish published, highlighting errors in:

  • spelling

  • grammar

  • punctuation

  • rogue or inconsistent spacing

Proofreading services for Website owners:

Having a presence on the internet means that your business is on display to potentially hundreds of millions of people. Once they have found you, perhaps through a search engine, your website is often the first contact potential customers have with your business.

You therefore need to be sure that your website presents your business to the world in a professional manner, i.e. attractive, well-formatted and absolutely error-free using correctly spelt and grammatically correct English.

Anything less will give your website visitors the impression that you and your business are unprofessional, perhaps causing them to go elsewhere.

 

I can offer a Proofreading check and an Operational Check.

For an Operational check, in addition to Proofreading, I will also check that all of the following work correctly in the latest versions of Firefox, Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. I can also check the appearance of your website on mobile devices such as phones or tablets. I will check all:

  • links

  • navigation

  • forms

  • images

  • graphics

  • pop-up windows

I can also make suggestions for improvements in organisation and style where appropriate.                      

Both services are suitable for existing websites and for those that have not yet gone live.

Remember, our aim is to help you to have a professional and fully-functioning website of which you can be proud!
