Success is all about making choices, good choices. So what should you think about that leads to more respect and authority?
SELF Appreciation and Approval
Listen, I understand first-hand that trying to get someone else’s approval is like pushing a strand of spaghetti uphill. Can’t be done, even if it’s uncooked! So how can your approval rating get higher? Make damn sure what you put out there in the form of product and service is clean, clear and … you guessed it… error free.
I also understand it’s our innate desire to be accepted, approved of, and even admired. That’s how you get more attention and of course, if you’re selling, more money.
- What noticeable ways can your products and services get noticed?
- How can you provide for that need or cater to your customer?
One way, and that’s with quality products and services.
And that’s why I strongly recommend proofreading, editing and writing DONE FOR YOU because if you don’t send clear communications, you can squash all your efforts in a single reading second.
I’m merely pointing out that choosing not to have your content, text, web pages, and graphic presentations proofread is similar to wearing a torn t-shirt and jeans to the senior’s villa. Guess how that generation views tatter? Unlikely they would trust you.
I hear, “So what!?” you asked. “Who cares what they think?”
Please understand, your success is not dependent on others trusting you—or is it?
You never know when the influencers in your life show up. So why not be ready instead of shrugging off the metaphor to get cleaned up?
Okay, we have that thought process cleared up. Now, Proofreading is NOT editing.
Let’s talk detailed turkey! Proofreading is the final pair of eyes before setting the content out into the world for your public’s eyes! And if they see a grammatical, spelling, CAPitalization error, verb/subject faux pas, in that split second, they decide if you are what you say you are, or a phony. Guess what? A large percentage of people take content messiness as a sign you suck!
We know that’s not true that you suck, but your reader gets that first impression from your content.
— Guys, it’s like walking into your first meeting, and your fly is down.
— Gals, it’s like showing up with a hole in your dark stockings.
— It’s like introducing yourself to precisely who needs to speak with you, and you have a coffee stain on your shirt!
Right now, you have an important decision to make. Decide to start winning more success and gain greater public authority. Show your customer you command respect.
You can make this one choice: add my proofreading package to your written efforts. Or you can choose to do nothing and remain wondering why people turn away.
Seriously. It sounds like an easy decision, but either way, you are making a choice.
Give proofreading a chance – your reputation depends on it.
Here’s something many people don’t realize. Proofreading is different from editing. There are a few different versions of how to proof and edit a document. To find out how much you need from a proofreader or editor of your content, check out more information on my “What I Do” page. You’ll be glad you did! You’ll find more information and a little idea of rates. “What I Do” right here.
Let’s get those flies up, hose looking new, and stains are gone from your content! Oh and here’s a little look-see how adjustments in content could look: B&A What is lean manufacturing – the before and after sample snippet.
Here are two more short examples of how proofing a document could save you face:
Or how about this example?
I’m glad you’re here to find out how easy it can be to have a second pair of eyes and clear up any issues that could hamper your success.
