As a professional wedding and event planner, it is important to be very detail oriented. That includes having correct spelling and grammar when you communicate to potential clients, booked clients, and across your social media platforms.
Before sending an email, proposal, or contract, take time to read it out loud. This helps you find missing words and grammatical mistakes. It is also helpful to read blog posts and social media updates out loud before posting them. If you have an assistant or someone else on your team, they might be able to proofread important documents before you send them. It is always helpful to have another set of eyes looking over your communication.
Another helpful tip for small business owners is to ask potential clients to spell out their names for you so that you spell their name correctly on future emails and on proposals and contracts.
