If you own your own business, it is likely you offer a newsletter or ezine, write articles, blog posts and ebooks, and have a website. All of these are viewed by your clients and potential clients. This is how people get to know you and learn about what you do.
The more written content you have for your business the more you need a Virtual Assistant to proofread it before it is sent out to the world. If a potential client is reading your blog or an article you posted on the web, they will notice typos and grammatical errors. Errors in your online content look unprofessional. It says that you do not pay attention to details.
I receive multiple emails, newsletters and ezines every day. I surf the web and visit blogs, article websites and other websites on a regular basis. The number of typos and grammatical errors I see in a day is alarming.
The best way to avoid this problem is to hire a Virtual Assistant to proofread everything you write even if you have a copywriter or ghost writer working for you. I would even recommend having multiple VAs or friends and colleagues look at your material. Because no one person can perfectly catch and correct every error, it is best to have many people check your work.
We live in a Web 2.0 world. Everything is visual online. You want the world to see the best you possible. Having a Virtual Assistant(s) proofread your writing is a simple way to put your best foot forward.
