Spelling really matters. It may seem like it’s not important in this day and age of shortened communication and overuse of emojis, but it’s definitely still relevant. The tiniest spelling mistake or grammatical error can send the completely wrong message to someone. From the most innocent Facebook status to a huge downtown billboard, spelling really matters.
On top of spelling, grammar really matters too. A misplaced comma or apostrophe can be catastrophic to any message. The context of what you’re trying to say becomes completely different. Sometimes it’s silly, other times it’s horrifying. This is why people always need to double check what they’ve written down.
And how long could it possibly take to proofread ad copy before it gets sent out? Doesn’t that copy go through more than one person?
