TIP 1: WRITING REPORTS

If you are preparing a report I give some useful advice in compiling and designing reports in my blog Tips for writers: Writing reports

TIP 2: THE IMPORTANCE OF PROOFREADING EMAILS

Because of the speed and urgency of emails it is easy to make mistakes that are not spotted before pressing the send button. If it is an email for a mass-marketing campaign much reputational damage can be caused. Try using preformed templates that have been proofread and only amend or add material to them when necessary and after a further proofread.

TIP 3: PROOFREADING WEBSITE MATERIAL

It is much easier and safer to proofread website content before it is uploaded and published by having a proofreader check through a version of the inserted material in Word or PDF format. It is more difficult to proofread a live website and to record and report on amendments that need to be made.
