In the business world, time is money. Your day is busy enough without having to worry about the finer details involved in checking and improving the thousands of documents your staff produces every year.
And mistakes can be costly. In July 2007, a New Mexico-based car dealership sent out 50,000 scratch-cards each as $1,000 winners instead of a 1 in 50,000 grand prize of $1,000. These cards were incorrectly printed by an Atlanta-based direct marketing company. The dealership could not handle the resultant $50 million pay-off and lost face and customers as a result, not to mention a slew of litigation by disgruntled locals, each of whom claimed to have won the grand prize.
Basic proofreading would have saved the company from near bankruptcy.
While it made the dealership (in)famous, we’re pretty sure that isn’t the kind of marketing you’re expecting for your business. You want to be noticed for your ideas, not your mistakes.
Sending a simple memo out to the masses with even one typo can be disastrous. Then again, documents your staff produces may be collaborative efforts, or materials they’ve already seen too many times to spot the blunders.
In this situation, it’s easy to overlook details, especially if the documents are in a language that isn’t the first language of your employees.
