Professional writing services are not something many business owners use despite their importance to their shops, hotels, restaurants, their business. Fact: A single spelling mistake on a website’s home page will reduce sales by 50 per cent as it suggests professional sloppiness and possible fraud.
When businesses fail it is easy to blame the recession or Covid-19. In all but a few cases that argument doesn’t stack up. Failure is more often due to complacency and miserable management. Obliged by business appointments to occasionally visit a splendidly situated restaurant I disliked doing so as the service was excruciatingly bad.

No upstart rival, even if their product was superior, could hope to compete against established brand names.
