In Marketing, Conversational Grammar is Good – Bad Grammar is … Not
A few days ago I received a series of emails from someone whose name is well known as a marketer of “how to make money on line” programs.
Once again, he was promising the sun, moon, and stars to anyone who signed up for his latest and greatest.
I have no idea why I read the first few paragraphs, but I did, and here is what I found:
“You have to see this new video that me and George just produced.”
I was shocked, so I read on, and there in the third paragraph, he repeated it. “Me and George.”
Now, all copywriters use conversational grammar. But that error is one that everyone should have gotten past in say… 3rd grade.
There’s no excuse for this. If English is your first language, you know better. If it’s NOT your first language, find someone to proofread your materials before you send them out to the world.
