Spelling Mistakes and Typos

Spelling, grammar, punctuation and typographical errors are dangerous and will decrease your online sales by 50%. Use ErrNET.3W® to solve this problem!

It is dangerous for website owners to assume that their website text is free of errors. This is a common problem with websites. What is the cause of these errors? Most website owners do not have a reliable copyediting system in place, so many errors simply “slip through the cracks.” Carelessness and poor writing are also two common sources. However, writing errors still occur with well-written and thoroughly proofread website copy. The fact is that certain errors are overlooked, no matter how many times your writing is proofread. In addition, it is very difficult for anyone to keep track of the vast rules and correct usage of the English language.

Why should website owners be concerned about these errors? Although they may seem trivial, writing errors tarnish professional image, and have a detrimental effect on online sales. By an analysis of website figures, Charles Duncombe, an online entrepreneur, demonstrated that just a single spelling mistake can cut online sales in half. “Online sales figures suggest that misspellings put off consumers who could have concerns about a website’s credibility,” said Duncombe. His research results were published in the BBC news (http://www.bbc.com/news/education-14130854). Mr. Duncombe’s results were groundbreaking because it quantified the direct effect that writing errors have on sales, which clearly exposes the consequences of such errors. In addition, once you lose a potential customer, not only is the direct sale lost but the potential for this lost customer to “spread the word” about your product through blogs, social media, etc. It is a shame to lose significant sales by errors that can be easily remedied.
