A professor at the university told me an anecdote: He was presenting a project of his company in front of interested people. He was somewhat nervous, so he tried to give the best presentation he could give. In the end, the entire presentation went well and was positively received by those present. The time has come to present the cost of developing this project; My teacher launched an already projected number of what such a project would cost.
The panel of interested, somewhat doubtful, tried to negotiate but my teacher was firm in the value of his company and that that was the right price for everyone. Then one of those interested said: “I give you 100 thousand less for the spelling error that came on the slide.” When reviewing it, my teacher was silent accepting that his presentation had an abysmal error, since at that level such an error is unforgivable. He had to accept the project budget. And that is why he always told us that an accent had cost him 100 thousand pesos and that in the business world he must have an impeccable spelling.
The teaching of this anecdote is also reflected in the presentations that entrepreneurs make in front of investors. If you ever find yourself in such a situation, check to die the entire presentation. Let an accent not cost you 100 thousand pesos!

If your sellers don’t understand the sales pitch, how can they sell? You must be concise and be able to convey the value of your products or services in affordable writing before your employees do so by speaking.
Writing as a primary tool in communication must be integrated with good spelling and semantics. The power of well-selected words and in the correct order can open new customers, markets and doors to money and success.
