Why Would Anyone Pay You To Proofread Their Work?
Writing, although fun, the proofreading, and editing part of it can be a challenge.
And even harder if it's your own lengthy piece of content, to proofread it objectively without flying over grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors like they're correct.
This is why and what clients will pay you to avoid.
Because poorly written work, riddled with lots of errors, is unenjoyable to read and takes away focus from the core message.
Causing false opinions about someone and their business to form, losing them potential clients, opportunities, and profits.
In comparison, paying a proofreader to ensure only the best work gets through to prevent an epic fail, quickly becomes a no brainer.
And as such, a Win-Win situation for both you, the proofreader, and the author.
You cash in, and they avoid subpar work detrimental to their business interests.
But how exactly will you start this proofreading business online?
Read the next section for the answer.
