Business websites…again

In February, we shared some business websites don’ts with you. Well, I keep coming across business websites in desperate need of an editor, so I thought I’d discuss this topic again. If you follow us on Facebook (and if you don’t, please start!), you know that we often share some of the typo-ridden, offensively phrased items we find on the web. My current favorite is actually a local editing service, just like Carpenter Doc, except its website features some serious issues:

This website is a perfect example of why businesses should use an editor for their website text. Now, in this case, the blatant typos, misspellings, and grammatical errors are particularly disturbing since this company is touting itself as a professional editing service. Ha! But, looking beyond that, a typo-ridden website is simply sloppy. If you don’t take the time to present yourself professionally on your website, why would I want to do business with you?

Web editing is something that I really enjoy, and it’s typically a fast and easy editing job, meaning it is budget friendly! If your site is already published, just send me the link, and I’ll go through the site page by page. I’ll send you detailed suggestions for text revisions, and I can also address the site’s functionality and readability as well. Contact me today!
