Summary
Just because you are not a born writer does not mean you should settle for less than perfect business documents. After all, every piece you write reflects directly on the quality of the product or service your business offers. This guide takes the guesswork out of more than 50 commonly used business documents, including: reports, proposals, business plans, presentations, press releases, memos, email, newsletters, collection letters, sales materials, and more. Arranged alphabetically and cross referenced for easier use, the book presents examples of how to (and how not to) create winning materials every time. The authors' step by step instructions begin with an overview of the writing process, from preparation and research right through to final review and publication. Sample documents show how pieces should look and read, and close to 300 individual entries cover key points of grammar, style and spelling, and present strategies for writing more clearly, avoiding bias, eliminating cliches, and much more
