Small changes to improve your writing

Business Business Tips
The slightest tweaks can make all the difference when it comes to improving your style as a writer. 

If you are looking to reach new audiences for your business or establish yourself as a thought leader, posting content online is a great way to stand out. But if your content has weak prose, it can undermine your goals.

Here are some tips from a recent PR News article on how making the smallest changes can greatly improve your content:

• Keep it simple and use clear language.

• Avoid complex sentences and adding unnecessary words.

• Delete descriptive words that alter the meaning of your verbs.

• Avoid repeating words and phrases.

• Read your writing out loud to yourself to identify problems.
