You’ve reached a pivotal moment in the proposal process: should you use the last couple of days to polish your technical content? Or should you send it off to the editors? A research study has the answer.
The short answer is yes
How do different types of errors affect the persuasiveness of a proposal and the evaluators’ perception of the ideas and content in the document? A research study found that documents with technical errors rated higher than those with grammatical errors. Giving the proposal a quality copy edit can boost your persuasiveness by 24% and your ideas and content by 12%.
