Created by me, Brad Smith, a writer that’s been featured on The New York Times, Business Insider, The Next Web, and several dozen more.
I use these tools on a daily basis. Unfortunately, not all of them are foolproof. So I started this site to help you separate the good from the bad.
What Bad Grammar Costs You
What’s the harm? A few simple typos here or there seem harmless.
And it’s true: most people might not notice a misplaced comma. But the problem is that simple, common spelling grammar mistakes you make each day can hurt you over the long run.
✅ Bad grammar hurts your first impression.
Typos and broken links on your site are among the leading causes of lost credibility.
✅ Bad grammar hurts your career path.
There’s a correlation between how many grammar mistakes someone makes, and how many promotions they receive. The people who’ve only been promoted 1-4 times over ten years make 45% more grammar mistakes than those who received 6-9 promotions during the same time.
✅ Bad grammar hurts your revenue.
Spelling mistakes cost companies millions online each year, according to the BBC. In another similar study, over 42% of respondents confirmed that spelling mistakes would negatively affect their perception. A large reason is because 99% of online communication is still text-based.
How Plagiarism Costs You
Plagiarism runs rampant.
It’s everywhere online, in schools, and in offices. Even though it can cost you both legally, financially.
❌ Plagiarism happens every single day.
A conservative estimate says that one in three students admitted to plagiarizing material from the Internet.
❌ Plagiarism is no different than violating copyright law.
Copyright law extends to all types of text (including TXT, DOC, PDF, DOCx, and PPT files) and images (including social media, JPEG, GIF, PSD, PNG, and more). Takedown notices have already flown by 3.5 billion in 2018, according to Google.
❌ Plagiarism can even cost you your career.
Even the whiff of plagiarism landed journalist Fareed Zakaria in hot water, throwing his career in temporary jeopardy.
