The effect of spelling errors

Posted on March 24, 2011

 

Did you know that 25 percent of all Americans have trouble spelling, or that 47 percent of employers would remove a candidate for a job from consideration as a result of one word being misspelt? Poor spelling skills can cause many problems, from minor embarrassment to ruining your career potential. English is one of the hardest languages to learn, with several meanings and spellings for one word. Spell the word incorrectly, and you alter the meaning of the whole sentence. This can have huge implications for the website of a business.

According to eBay, the popular auction site, many words are spelt incorrectly in the auction listings. As eBay doesn’t correct spelling errors, the listing has very little chance of being discovered by potential buyers. If you are trying to make a living by selling online, this type of error will cost you dearly. Any online business will be affected by poor spelling and grammar. Many business owners try to cut costs by creating web copy and articles themselves, but end up with poor or duplicated content.

A professional writer has the relevant skills to create outstanding web content, with excellent spelling and grammar, as English will be their first language. Many UK copywriting agencies will also have a team of editors who will go through all work, spotting and correcting grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. Content outsourcing will allow you to concentrate on other aspects of your business, without wondering if your web content is presenting a professional image for your company.
