Red Faces at Yellow Pages – and how not to let the same happen to you

Typos can have a highly detrimental effect on a business. And no one knows that more than Banner Travel Agency owner, Gloria Quinan. Back in 1988, when the world relied on telephone books, Gloria’s listing in the Yellow Pages advertised her business as offering ‘International and Erotic Travel’. An appalled Gloria said, ‘We offer exotic travel, like tours up the Amazon, but nothing erotic.’ To make matters worse, the offending word was emblazoned in red across her prominent advertisement. Gloria’s…

One only has to look at the well-known question, ‘What is this thing called love?’ to realise the extraordinary power of a little black squiggle to change that sentence’s meaning entirely when inserted after ‘called’. Try it, and you’ll see what we mean. Commas, of course, are used to separate items in a list. For example: ‘I bought wine, gin, tequila, and more wine.’ Note that extra…

Request for tender? How to get to know the prospect

As any organisation knows, one size does not fit all: clients have different needs and companies must respond to this to deliver the best customer experience. Likewise, when tendering for work, businesses need to tailor their offer to their prospects’ requirements. It’s always good to have a face-to-face relationship with prospects and to keep leads warm. That way, you may be invited to tender when the contract comes up. Knowing the prospect well will mean that when the time comes…

Failure to proofread leaves job applicant furious

A little while ago the SMH carried an article by Tom Cowie, reporting events after a lawyer hired a resumé writing company to write her job application for a government agency. But when both parties failed to spy numerous mistakes and the lawyer wasn’t granted an interview, a lengthy legal stooshie ensued.
