    A standout amongst essential things for any business is to ensure that you attract the right customers. This is especially valid for those in the food ordering business. As having the right customers can be the distinction between turning into a success or not.

    My friend, Pam Danziger of Unity Marketing, shares real insight into the issue of Facebook Advertising for small business.

    Bottom line: It can work, but you gotta know what you're doing.

    Too many small businesses jump into Facebook Ads (and Google Adwords, etc) without a plan....and waste a lot of money. If you want to talk marketing strategies for small business, let me know.

    #22 Not only that, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian. All intelligent speakers and writers will understand standard words and phrases, but we understand them in context, not necessarily out of it.

    There's the question of usage in terms of what comes to mind first. And the fact that language evolves.

    Consider the object that women carry which holds money, keys, and everything barring the kitchen sink.

    I say 'handbag'. Which also means a piece of luggage. (A HANDbag?!)

    Americans say 'purse', which to me is a small thing with a zipper one carries coins in. It used to refer to anything one carried money in, including men's wallets.

    My sister-in-law says 'pocketbook'. Also the word my late grandmother used. It's within living memory that 'pocketbook' referred to a man's wallet in some places.

    What does 'to table' something mean? How about 'davenport'? 'Lounge'? 'Mincemeat'?
    Trunk, thong, rubber, spunky, boot, glove compartment, glasses, tacky, jumper - and so on and so forth.

    I could go on, but you take the point. People can *think* they're on the same page, and actually be reading a different book!

    #17 I really don't think it is much about finding the phrases troublesome. At the end of the day we all need to remember (irrespective of geographies) that we are writing for people. I am pretty comfortable writing for clients in any country, across industries. What I think every writer should do is research as much as they can, about the product/service/ buyer personas to help understand what language to use and the tone.
    People who have written for me, write in a formal manner. The feedback we have received from our American clients was more about keeping the language simple and have readability scores of 6-7 which is a difficult task. I have somehow trained myself to write short sentences but I am yet to get there. :-)

    #20 Sure can, @Alexa Steele. Not only is the French spoken in Quebec different from that of France, so is the English different from that in the UK or US.

    It isn't so much that one won't understand the other, but we do use words that are not found in the original languages

    #16 Aloha, @Paul Walters. Always happy to network, though I personally don't outsource.

    Zacharias asked: 'If I give you a text from a non-native and another text (on the same subject) by a native English speaker, would you be able to tell the difference with confidence?'

    It depends. If we rule out people whose business is translating and all folks with the skill level of UN translators, and all other things being equal, I'm guessing yes, but I'm unusual. I've lived on four continents (so far) and I have a particular talent for words and usage.

    'However, I've seen non-native English speakers who have a better mastery of the language than native English speaker, not to mention a broader and richer vocabulary.'

    You're not wrong. I have too and I daresay so have we all.

    Great words of caution.Every decision ought to be an informed one.

    It is about priorities. If one cannot risk losing time or credibility, go for resources from Countries which honor contractual obligations and can be held accountable for damages. Pay the extra bucks , ensure delivery. Even if they honor your contract, chances are they are exploiting someone at the back end, it becomes difficult to hide one's face when such thigs are revealed. And yes, it happens in writing too.

    If one cannot lose money and has time for reworks, go for the cheapest option. Although one can avoid reworks by going for experienced resources,social media/online content is a good place to see if one finds the right fit. Once familiarity sets in there are many good writers sitting in India who can write in many languages with a good cultural sensibility and the morality to deliver. It is writing, it is possible to learn and improve.

    Hi Alexa, I do agree with you.
    I grew up with 3 languages, out of which English was one. Our school curriculum (in India) was more aligned toward British English. It was only when I was in college that I started picking up on the nuances between the two (American and British). Over the years, with increase exposure to American literature, movies (well, Hollywood always influenced considerably) and hanging out with my friends from the US, I started understanding how Americans think.

    At my first job we were given a Bridging the Culture session where we learnt about the ways in which Americans communicate and what their popular catch phrases were and what they meant.

    I have written for both UK and US clients, and have written for Canadian and Australian clients, too. Keeping up with the differences is a huge task but once you know the nuances and details of each culture, it's easier to connect with the audience.

    I find it difficult to get this particular understanding from the writers, I hire for projects, here. So I encourage them to watch movies, observe and learn from them. How words and phrases are being used and how to increase audience engagement through our carefully chosen words and phrases. (Learning a language and gaining knowledge about their culture by mimicking them and immersing oneself in it, is one of the best ways to learn). Practice makes perfect.

    After all, the devil's in the details.

    Loved the article and also the examples on how PR and Advertising can go wrong if one is not careful about the dominant cultural influences there.

    #3 Yes, Zacharias, I agree. But a non-native speaker/writer of English who meets your criteria is unlikely to be writing content at US$0.01 per word or working at a customer service desk for US$20.00 per week. I am not being critical of any who seek work, only of companies who seek to exploit low labor costs in depressed labor markets.

    11/09/2017 #7 Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris
    #6 Indeed. I was once talking with an Italian friend of mine who made a very convincing point about how Italian in Italy is substantially different from the Italian spoken in Switzerland. I imagine this culture-based difference in language is evident in many other languages around the world.

    11/09/2017 #6 Alexa Steele
    #3 I don't doubt for a second that there are non-native speakers who can write beautifully. And I've seen writing from native speakers that was so bad I assumed English WAS their second language. My point here is more about culture than vocabulary or grammar. Click on the "euphemisms" link in the article above for a really good example.

    #3 So did I. I once put a lot of time, energy, and capital into a system wishing for results. I even had a great autoresponder system. Yet, I was hoping all this together would replace the human factor needed. Yes, I made profit, but not enough to where it was worth my time. At least I learn from my mistakes and moved on.

    Preston, You know what you are talking about based on my experience. As little as most internet gurus want to talk about it is the fact that like all marketing solutions, it is a numbers game. If you can't derive a profit through a funnel as you've illustrated you will soon be out of business. One further note: Selling information can be more difficult than applications or actual physical goods. I learned that lesson the hard way.
