Good Writing Matters – Here’s Some Free Help

Everyone knows that doing business these days requires some degree of writing skill.  You either have to know how to put your thoughts into words yourself, or you have to hire it done or rely on a spouse or friend.  Most everyone I know does his own writing.

Just think – there’s web content, blog content, newsletters, business letters, emails…and the list goes on.  I’ve been working online for the past year and I’ve seen a lot of writing, AND I’ve read a lot of what other people have written.  Especially blog posts, auto-responder messages and sales page copy.

What I have found amazing is the lack of attention to the details of educated writing.  I find that many folks must have zoned out of English class early on, and never got reconnected.  Some people don’t even bother to use a capital letter at the beginning of a Subject Line or a sentence.  They don’t know the difference in “it’s” and “its.”  They don’t know the difference in the meaning of fewer or less (Hint:  If you can count it, use the word fewer, if you can’t count it, say less.  Think: Fewer people, Less sugar.)

I still believe good writing matters.  And just like anything else, if you take it one little bite at a time, your writing can improve.  To that end, I did a webinar entitled, “Taming the Top 10 Grammar Monsters.”  I received a lot of positive response to this training and it’s still one of the most downloaded training videos on our Business Training Team website.

As a lot of us are participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge, I’d like to offer this training to you at no cost. It’s my New Year’s gift to you, my fellow blogger.

Please share with me your thoughts on good writing and how you rate yourself.  Also, let me know how the video has helped you.  Did you learn anything new, or was it old hat for you?

I look forward to visiting many of your blogs, and I hope you come back here often.  I wish you much success in your businesses this year!
