Effective Communication is a 50-50 Deal.

Written by Michael Harrison

Continued from page 1

Effective listening should not be difficult but miscommunication is everywhere. We cannot control howrepparttar other person receives and interprets what we are saying and we donít always succeed in saying clearly what we mean, sorepparttar 138544 chances of misunderstanding are high!

To avoid misunderstandings and save time and effort someone, preferably you should take responsibility for paraphrasing what has been said so that all parties are clear on what has been agreed.

Just as we are not taught to listen there must be question on how well we are taught to write. At school I hated writing because my teachers made it too complicated. I am very numerate and followed a scientific route in my early career. I had to make myself learnrepparttar 138545 basics of writing later in life. I needed this ability for my work.

Ken Evoy of www.sitesell.com/wolves.html espouses muchrepparttar 138546 same sentiments in his excellent tutorials. Keeping it simple seems to berepparttar 138547 key. I hope I have got my points over clearly, if not we have another example of miscommunication.

Tip: It often needs an open mind to keep oneís mouth shut.

4. Check your facts. If your article shows promise, someone may very well come along and want to use it in their own marketing presentation. You may be quoted, and your name passed on as an expert in your field. If you intend to be an expert, then take care to back your arguments with solid evidence. There's nothing worse than seeing your article plastered all overrepparttar internet only to learn later that it containedrepparttar 138432 wrong information.

5. Include examples. Here's an example of how to include an example. Let's say you're writing about a weight-loss program.

When developing your paragraphs and points of interest, followrepparttar 138437 Goldilocks rule: not too long, not too short, but just right. If you feel like taking a portion of your article and going on for pages about it, great! Just be sure to do it in a different article.

7. Proofread. An expert article author always submits flawless work. Always, always, always proofread your writing before you hit Submit.

So proofread thoroughly with your own two eyes, and be sure that your article is 100% error-free.
