Since the virtual world has become a megaphone for anyone with an opinion to push their content, it has become apparent we all could use a little more high school English.
Anyone wanting to add inbound marketing strategies will be required to provide something more than kool-aid content which is something more than grammar dribble.
Once you decide it is time to raise the bar with the hope of impressing those who are in a different league... you will learn new skills, hire a new team or possibly turn to software for a solution.

How much is Grammarly? It's Free.
While Grammarly is free, they also offer premium individual subscription plans for the heavier users.
Weak grammar and poor use of language have an invisible affect (or effect?) you will never feel. People you connect with will recognize your eloquence when speaking but avoid you once they read your email or blog. The deafening silence of no further contact will leave you wondering why.
Check out the free Grammarly.com account and get started. It may take a couple extra minutes but consider the benefit. It will train you and over time, you will find it corrects you less and less.
At that point, people will bow to you and call you a wordsmith master.
