    Evaluate Content

    Content is only one aspect of your document. Let’s say you were assigned a report on the sales trends for a specific product in a relatively new market.

    Organization is another key aspect of any document. Standard formats that include an introduction, body, and conclusion may be part of your document.

    • Format - involves the design expectations of author and audience.

    • Facts - being responsible for examining every article before it gets published and consulting original sources to make sure the information in the article is accurate.

    • Names - There is no more embarrassing error in business writing than to misspell someone’s name. Incorrect spelling of names is a quick way to undermine your credibility; it can also have a negative impact on your organization’s reputation, and in some cases it may even have legal ramifications.

    • Spelling - Correct spelling is another element essential for your credibility, and errors will be glaringly obvious to any readers. The negative impact on your reputation as a writer, and its perception that you lack attention to detail or do not value your work, will be hard to overcome. In addition to the negative personal consequences, spelling errors can become factual errors and destroy the value of content.

    • Punctuation - Correct punctuation will help your reader follow the thoughts through sentences and paragraphs, and enable you to communicate with maximum efficiency while reducing the probability of error.

    • Grammar - Grammar involves the written construction of meaning from words and involves customs that evolve and adapt to usage over time. Because grammar is always evolving, none of us can sit back and rest assured that we “know” how to write with proper grammar.
