5 Tools to Bring your Writing into Focus
No matter how hard you work compiling data, highlighting facts and making it relate to your audience, careless mistakes could cost you. Just one bungled sentence, one typo or grammatical error can send a reader clicking past your site. Part of your healthcare brand is communication and good writing can help your communicate effectively.
Your healthcare brand may have many multitaskers, folks who are managing the many aspects of their job, including social media. Here are 5 tools that will help those multitaskers make the task of writing and content management a bit easier.
After the Deadline is free and checks grammar, spelling, and style errors. The software easily works with WordPress, so if your healthcare blog is already on the popular site, this tool is an easy add-on.
Webspellchecker is not free but does offer a free trial for one month. The big plus to this tool is that it checks as you type and integrates with your browser to underline mistakes as you go. This could come in handy for a variety of projects, in addition to blogs and social media, such as patient communication and organization-wide emails.
SlickWrite is free and there is nothing to download. You can type or paste your content directly into the checker; the site will check for errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation, structure, tense, and more.
1Checker is a free site but it does ask users to sign up; it checks your grammar and spelling. The advantage here is that it offers plugins for Word, Outlook, and your browser.
Grammarly is free and also asks the user to sign up. In addition to checking spelling and grammar, this site also allows you to store projects. Grammarly can also integrate into your browser to help with social media posts and email accounts.
Now that you know help is out there you can concentrate on the message itself, rather than the process. Your blog and social media should be working in harmony with your entire healthcare brand. Don’t get caught up in the technical aspects of content, just make sure you are producing information that will speak to patients in the community.
