When you spend your life writing content not only for people to consume but also as marketing efforts for brands and agencies it is incredibly important to ensure that you are consistent and coherent as well as eliminating as many spelling and grammar errors as possible.
I’ve said it time and time again in our dedicated Facebook Group (which you should join) where our collection of sassy blog and business owners meet up to discuss tips and help each other out, that my most recommended tool for pre-publication of any content is Grammarly.
You may have seen people talk about how great Grammarly is before. For those of you who have used it chances are that you’ll have never looked back. If not, then let me introduce it to you. I stumbled upon Grammarly after watching an advert on a YouTube video a little while ago. Intrigued I headed to their site and created my FREE account. As I typed my post into the site I was instantly impressed that not only did the spelling errors show up, it also helped me to further correct my sentence structure to improve it.
Another great feature is the real-time checking and the word count counter found at the bottom of the Grammarly site. Already written a document? Simply upload it and Grammarly will check it for you in a more thorough manner than any other spelling and grammar checking application or software.
Grammarly also offers a ‘clip-on’ meaning, anything that you type in your internet browser is spell-checked as you go. Proofreading your post prior to you pressing send. The benefits with Grammarly, in which I have personally discovered include a more eloquent writing style. As Grammarly corrects your sentence structure it is not just a simple tool. It has far greater benefits than that. This smart installation also helps educate you on writing professionally too.
Now Grammarly is even integrated into writing in WordPress, which means that creating content has never been simpler. Simply check your content as you go and really eliminate the errors on your site in real-time, which is incredible as this will help you rank higher in search engines results as the more accurate your content, the easier it is for the likes of Google to pick your content up for people looking for things that you’re writing about!
