Is Grammarly premium really worth it? I hear you asking this question on social media.
If you are already a user of the free version of Grammarly, then you know what a great tool it is. However, is it really that essential and worth the cost of upgrading to Grammarly premium.
Checking Your Content Is Vital
Proofreading your content is vital, whether it is
- Email copy
- Website copy
- Social Media copy
- Blog post copy
You need to do your proofreading! Though as busy people, we do not always have the time to do proofreading. To solve this problem, we have two options.
Option 1, hire someone to do it or option 2, use a tool. A tool that you can get on your computer that will proofread your copy for you, find grammatical errors, and teach you how to not make the same mistake again.
Grammarly was launched in 2009 and was founded in Ukraine. Grammarly is a writing tool that helps you improve your grammar and sentences. You can download Grammarly on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

Tool #3 Grammarly Personal Editor
The downloadable Grammarly personal editor app or online version where you can either use it to type your documents. Copy and paste documents into the app or just drag and drop them into Grammarly.
