Spelling Mistakes Can Costs

We've run numerous articles about the need for editors when self-publishing, the hows, the whats, the whys.  Still not convinced?  Check out this very interesting BBC article on how spelling errors can cut revenue in half for websites:  BBC Article

  1. You know, that is so true. Someone can tell me about THE coolest product/book/whatever out there and I can go to the website to check it out... but if I find too many spelling and grammatical errors... I can't bring myself to trust the website. What's to say it isn't a scam? I think to myself. If they can't even spell correctly or present a professional front, how can I trust that their product actually works? Did they just throw this website up overnight and say, "Good enough for now..." or did they invest hours upon hours and just never looked it over before presenting it to the world?
    Great post. Makes you want to double check that spelling!!
