Proofreading is something that dreads most of the busy people. Mostly because it is long and tedious and doesn’t even guarantee a full-proof copy. This tool will help you, all you have to do is copy paste your text into the box. And gradually it gives you feedback with underlined errors and ways to work on them. All you have to do then is follow suggestions and make corrections and then copy paste into the platform you want to publish it on.
Have you ever wished to have a spell checker through the browser itself? A lot of us do, mostly because we don’t want to copy and paste parts of our content back and forth. This tool is an excellent and one of a kind grammar checker that can be downloaded into any program you use. This can be used in Word, Outlook and also on the browser if you are someone who writes directly on social media sites. You will be awed by how easier your life will be with this.
The major concern that bites us all while posting on social media is undoubtedly, the word count. At least, it is for most writers that I know of. Even though we have been in the business for long, it can be an issue during stressful hours to put all the information within the word limit. You don’t want your post to look too pushy or weird either. This tool splits your post in impressive bite-sized chunks that you could post consecutively.
We writers do not always necessarily work from one system, do we? Courtesy hot-desking and high work demand at odd hours of the day, we work from home too. In situations like these, USB cords and cloud services become an added botheration. Trust me, this tool will be of help. It provides a clean interface that you could write on every time you want and it will back it all up online. The problems of scrabbling or lost file tension will be a matter of the past from here on.
AS writers or business owners we all have unique strategies that we follow. Some of us write what makes sense to our gut while some others depend on data while writing a post. If you are someone who loves to work with data and the right statistics, you will fall in love with this tool. This tool acts like a strict teacher and helps improve your writing as you progress in writing a post. It gives you feedback simultaneously about your grammar and spellings. Not just that, it will guide you in improving on those mistakes. This also has a statistics page that tells you how often you have used a phrase or a word. It also has a lot of other statistics that will help you write better and polished content on social media.
There are many other tools on the market similar to the 6 mentioned above. They can all help you in making your social media content seem stronger. You will be able to understand your strong and weak areas as a writer and gradually become flawless.
