    Is anybody else sick of seeing these marketplace sellers with horrible spelling? Sometimes I wonder if I can really trust them creating content etc, if they can't even bother to spell properly when creating their sales graphics.

    Sales graphics is probably not creates by them, but by designer. :) Other than that I do agree. But why would you even consider buying content from "writer" that you can't even have a chat with? I always chat with potential writers. :)

    Not everyone speaks English. There are members from all over the globe here. If sales graphics bother you so much you are always welcome to go pay premium rates to premium writers.

    yeah I understand that not everybody speaks english, but wouldn't you agree that spelling really matters in a sales copy?

    Yes, you are right. There is just one chance to leave a first impression after all. :)

    It depends on:

    a) What you're buying. I don't mind spelling at all if I'm buying electronics for example.

    b) What you're buying it for. Even low quality text has its uses if that's what you need. In that case, again it doesn't matter.

    Clearly, if you're on the market for decent content, spelling errors are a great way to shop from another person.

    Capital letters please.

    I quite simply do not buy off them if their sales thread is shit.

    Actually one of my hobbies is looking for errors on content BSTs.

    It makes sense if someone can't spell and their BST is on content, you'd pick another content BST.

    That's not a reasonable excuse for not passing the sales page text over a spell-checker - it's not like it costs money.

    So if someone offers website design you people judge him on his spelling, if someone offers traffic you judge him for not being a native. WOW

    yeah I understand that dude, but clearly you get my point, if you're selling content, and your sales copy has spelling errors, on the most basic words, it's a bit...err you know

    well honestly, to me I feel that if someone takes pride in their service, they can at least use the free spell check tool to correct any errors lol

    It is an indication that they don't pay attention to details. Unless it's for a throwaway-can't-be-bothered-with thing, no, I would definitely not buy website design from that person.

    Especially content writing sales theads.

    No, unless it is content writing service, spelling should sort of be all right for starters...

    Laziness and cutting corners in sales graphics/pages will generally correlate to laziness and cutting corners with whatever work they perform.

    I speak Dutch, French, Spanish, German, Old and new Arabic and english. Most people are not native english speakers. English is not even my 4th language I've learned. Ofcourse non native will make mistakes. Why do people feel the need to make a fucking thread about it and shit on them? Perhaphs they already feel bad about it, I know sure as hell I do. You fuck with people minds. I hope it makes you happy and you'll sleep good tonight knowing you at least made a couple hard trying people feel bad!

    This reminds me when guys send marketplace threads for approval and then for approval don't do work properly (when it should be outstanding) and then their first and most important review from mod sounds like "problems during bla bla, spammy content, bla bla..."
