Bad business writing drives everybody nuts
Bad business writing drives everybody nuts, slows your business down and compromise your success and profitability. Poorly written material is a waste of your time, your employees’ time and your customers’ time. What you read and what people read is too often ineffective because it is too long, poorly organized, unclear, filled with incomprehensible jargon, and imprecise. It drives people and customers away.
Good business writing creates alignment, boosts productivity and profitability.
When writing email, technical bulletins, memos, business letters and marketing material, everybody, from the CEO down, must set an example by communicating exactly what they want. Good business and marketing writing commands that you clearly state, either in the subject line or title, and the first two sentences of everything you write whatever is to be achieved and the desired results. Lose the filler and do not waste anybody’s time especially your prospective customers’ time.
Do this right, and you will get a reputation for honesty, truthfulness and, more importantly, you will retain your actual customers and attract new ones.
When writing, focus on the end user and everything else will follow.
Clarity tells everyone that they can trust you. When writing business and marketing material, focus on providing the best user experience possible, the best customer experience possible. Whether you are designing a new blog or website, writing a business letter or drafting a memo or email, always make sure that whatever you write will ultimately serve the interests of the end user or customer rather than our own internal goal or bottom line. Doing so, it will surely and definitely improve your business productivity and profitability.
