If you’re a great writer, then you might think you don’t need any help with business writing. However, business writing and standard writing are two different things.

If you’re going to be a successful entrepreneur, then you need to know the difference and you need to be able to do both of them well. Below, you’ll find just a few of the differences.

No Emotion

One of the biggest differences with standard writing and business writing is the fact that business writing shouldn’t have any emotion in it. This is harder than it sounds to accomplish, as most styles of writing have some emotions. You need to get used to taking the emotion out and writing in a neutral sort of way. This is why business writing is often viewed as cold and hard.

Clear Language

You can’t beat around the bush in business writing. You need to know what you’re trying to say and get to the point quickly. You can have fun with other types of writing, and leave people guessing. You can’t do this with business writing. You need to know how to get from A-B easily.

Facts Over Opinion

Business writing is all about fact over opinion. They want cold hard stats and numbers – and they don’t want to hear what you think about that. People need to be able to make up their own minds. Below, you’ll find advice on how to perfect your business writing further.
