Styles for Business Writing

Improve your branding with online learningstyles-business-writing-online-course

This online writing course, developed by Mary Morel, is designed to help small-to-medium-sized businesses or organisations use consistent styles in all their communications.

Writing styles, such as the way you punctuate a list or express a date, are part of your branding. First impressions count and if you use inconsistent capitals or write about currency in different ways, your credibility drops.

At the end of this online writing course, you may decide to develop your own in-house style guide and you can use the material in this course as a starting point.
