Smart Business Writing: 4 Stages to Writing Your Best


Some people thinks that in the grand scheme of things, excellence in writing isn’t all that important as long as you get the General idea across.

But the sentence above is a perfect illustration of why that simply isn’t true: Did it make you wary to see that the first sentence of a course intended to teach you writing tips was full of errors? Good writing gives you and your ideas authority, visibility, and stature. Bad writing, on the other hand, can make readers question your credibility and/or expertise, can be costly to a business, and can even damage the career of the writer. Inefficient, unclear, misleading, irrelevant, sloppy or deceptive written communication costs companies across the board billions each year.

This course will help you improve your skills and avoid careless errors by focusing on four stages of writing: preparing, planning, drafting, and editing (revising and finalizing).
