Needless to say, I was embarrassed and proceeded to write a blog post about it.
In the past I’ve also written about how direct response copywriters may break the rules of grammar. You may see us using sentence fragments or content that’s more conversational than prose. And, in our books, that’s okay.
However, we’re still professionals and want our writing to captivate, compel and convert prospects into customers. That’s why I was pleased when I came across Copyblogger’s Infographic (below). It mentions the grammar errors I called out in my earlier blog post and more. Discover how the following 15 “grammar goofs” may make you look less than professional.
