Writing for Business - The Basics

or welcome back to the 3rd grade.

Learn the Basics for Success

  • Never assume your reader knows anything you are talking about.

  • Read your writing out LOUD and v.e.r.y... s.l.o.w.l.y... to find your mistakes.

  • Don’t trust your typing skills.

  • Don’t trust grammar check.

  • Know your audience and stick to your voice.

  • Follow the Reader’s Digest philosophy – don’t write anything longer than you what you can read in the bathroom or risk losing your reader.

  • Tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, and then tell them what you told them.

  • You will never please everyone all the time… You will have critics so be prepared to be told you’re wrong or that you suck.

Now go write!
